Da Boys take a trip
Security was smooth with one exception. The folks at the gate didn't know what to do with El Grande's white cane. He must be the first blind passenger they've ever boarded. Is that possible? Are there no set policies for blind passengers? Evidently not. They eventually settled on running the cane through the x-ray machine and offering a hand to guide El Grande through the metal detector. Then he got his cane back and continued on to the boarding area. Da Boys called me from there while they were waiting for the plane to arrive and the boarding process to begin.
They will probably call me again from O'Hare while they're waiting for their transfer flight. I have a feeling El Grande will make friends with the flight attendants and enjoy the experience immensely. This, in turn, will relax the Husband, who worries about the kid as much as anyone.
Happy Trails, guys! La Petite and I will watch girlie movies and eat popcorn all week.
