Houston, we have a problem

If I was the suspicious type, I would suspect that Houston's G. Bush Intercontinental Airport has got something personal against my man. Perhaps we should not have mocked its namesake as much as we did, back in the day.

On the way to Mexico on the weekend, the Spousal Unit was delayed in Houston for 8 hours,on the same day that a blogger friend was also cooling her heels in the exact same airport, on what would turn out to be a 40-hour trip home from Mexico. So I guess he was lucky.

Today, he was delayed at G Bush Intercon for 3.5 hours. 

Interestingly, the Air Canada flight tracker still shows the flight as leaving and arriving on time. It's airline magic!

The SRK is now in serious needs of those belly rubs that only her daddy can give. 
In much cheerier news, I was chuffed to see my byline in today's Calgary Sun. I'll be contributing to a regular feature all about the National Music Centre which will grace the Show Biz section every Friday. I'll be darkening those pages about every two weeks, but you should pick up the Calgary Sun every Friday to learn about all the cool goings on.

Maybe delayed Air Canada flights leave on time in alternate universes.

Congrats on the Calgary Sun gig. Actually, I should be congratulating them.

It sounds like a magical universe, John, one where chocolate is a super food and sitting all day is very good for you.

I am pretty pleased to have sneaked into the broadsheets - okay, actually the tabloids...

Congrats on the newspaper feature!

I will make a note to check back on Fridays. :)

Thanks, Al! I was pretty honoured to have been chosen for the task.

Wow, congratulations. That is great. Now I have something to look forward to on Fridays.

Toccata said...

Wow, congratulations. I am so happy for you Barbara. I think it's really cool to see someone pursue something in the arts and be able to make it! Not an easy thing to do.

Thanks, Toccata! It's just a small column but I am very pleased to have been given the opportunity. And it's been fun so far too!
