Headline: Unexpected Side Trip to La La Land

Our flight from Phoenix to LA was delayed due to “weather,” said Delta. The foul weather turned out to be runway repairs at LAX and regardless of how you define it, we thus missed our connection to Honolulu. Our bags were more fortunate. All of them made it onto our Hawaii-bound plane and will be awaiting us at the airport there — or so says Delta. We shall see. 

And as it turns out, Delta doesn’t distinguish between acts of God and acts of Government, so the runway construction snafu means we are on our own in terms of paying for our one night stay in the glamorous Courtyard Marriott on Century Boulevard.

We are supposed to be gazing upon the moonlit bay of Waikiki tonight. Instead, we have a parking garage with LAX in the background. 

On the other hand, it’s another adventure and I’m with my one true love, Penny Serfazo Heller.
