Happy Anniversary to Mr & Mrs. TM.

Well yesterday was an exciting day. Printed my boarding pass in the AM, finished my conference, there was a shuttle at the front door of the hotel - I got on with no waiting and saved a couple of bucks over a cab. At the airport I practically breezed through security. Then I went to the monitor to find me gate and what did I see but CANCELLED. What? Seems American Airlines had a computer failure that brought their entire system down and cancelled hundreds of flights.
I was able to call my TA and get on a flight another airline about 90 minutes later. Had to do a low level sprint from gate A70 to C18 because leg to begin boarding as leg 1 landed. All-in-all I got home about two hours later than I had planned. I fared a lot better than many fliers yesterday.

All I ask is a tall ship and a star to steer her by; John Masefield
