Day One

Wow! What a day! We got to the airport early Saturday morning ready to travel. The night before was a mess. Poodle had been sick and late Friday night we found he had bitten himself raw in a spot. Poor Puppy! To keep him biting himself more, my father-in-law fashioned a collar cone out of 2 popcorn tubs. We said goodbye to everyone and drove my the OC.
Back to the airport. We got onto our plane, sat for an hour before the pilot told us the plane could not be repaired and we had to unload and wait for a new plane. BOOO! We waited back in the terminal forever.

We got lunch, of course 30 minutes after the airlines gave us lunch vouchers.At least I had these to console me!

Big Daddy and I decided to buy dinner at the airport and take in onto the plane for later. We called home all day to find out how the Poodle was. Bad news. He had an absessed anal gland. Now, for those of you who have never heard of this, DO NOT GOOGLE it. Believe me, it's nasty and you don't want to know. Poor Poo had been in a lot of pain, but the vet gave him a real plastic collar and meds to make him better. Poor baby!

It's now been over 3 hours waiting for a plane in the terminal, when a group came rushing in. The group was lead my a man in a suit, a young red headed woman, another younger girl and a scruffy looking dude. Hum! That red head looked like Lindsay Lohan. The group walked behind the ticket counter. About 30 minutes later we all loaded onto the plane. On our way to our seats we walked through first class, and sure enough, Lindsay Lohan and her sister Ally. Yikes! Not only was she on MY plane, but going to MY island! I was listening to my mp3 player as we slowly walked by, and I saw her sister on the aisle seat and there was Lilo right next to her.
Whoo-hoo! The funniest part was their "entourage" was sitting in coach with the rest of us!
The plane ride was long and tiring, but 14 hours later, we arrived in Maui. We arrived at the Marriott Ocean Club, checked in, grabbed some dinner and met our friends for desert at Lelani's. Hey! Now we were ready to play, although I was exhausted. We would have to wait another day to play.
