We left on Boston on Sunday. I checked the United web site about three hours before our flight was to leave and it said it was to be ~2 hrs late which would make us miss our Chicago connection. (I couldn't get a direct flight when I booked with my FF miles a few weeks before). I called them and they said they had already booked us onto a direct flight which was to arrive at about the same time as the original flight. It was a bit late because of headwinds but I was amazed that they had done this. Surprisingly they had not sent email or phoned even though I'd gotten a phone call a few weeks before that the return flight time had changed by a few minutes.
Lots of water is flowing over Yosemite Falls now - I saw some pictures of cases in the fall when it is dry, Having not brought my memory card reader I can't post any pictures 'til we get back.
And we are lookinf forward to the Queer Contra Dance Camp
