The flight was late leaving Miami due to weather somewhere else, and the flight was overbooked. By the time they were boarding us, the gate agents were offering a $1,000 voucher and all sorts of goodies, including hotel vouchers and first-class upgrades, to any takers. If I didn’t have just two days with my parents, I would have snapped it up.
Enterprise upgraded my bare-bones reserved car to a Nissan Rogue, which is a station wagon wannabe with more bells and whistles than a carnival organ. The Red Roof Inn had trouble with the router in my wing so this is my first access to WiFi. Oh, the horror.
Anyway, I’m here with Mom and Dad, catching up and offering a hand where I can.
