The 6:00 AM flight out of Albuquerque was full, which was odd, even on the Saturday after Thanksgiving. It's usually empty. And there were lines at the airport, also not usual.
We made the flight, and since we bought the tickets before June, we didn't have to pay for the bags. Bear is being safely hand-carried, after his exciting flight down the steps at Acoma.
Lots of passengers had less than 30 minutes to catch flights, some of which were pretty far away. We got in on time; that wasn't the issue. The issue was that United had scheduled a lot of flights with very little turn-around.
So we hope that everybody got their flights; we hope that everybody's luggage got transferred; we're hanging out waiting for our flight so we can go pick up the dogs from the dog hotel and go home to Nutwood.
And next time I get a chance to buy a car, I'm getting a Prius. I drove one all around Albuquerque and I loved it.
