Milwaukee and Linda with one L

Linda's flight to Madison was cancelled last night, and she was put on a flight to Milwaukee set to get in at 11:51pm. So, after running around all day preparing for our guest (housecleaning, grocery shopping etc...) we then drove to Milwaukee. Actually, Goldie is awesome because she drove. It was like a mini road-trip and we had a lot of silly fun. The flight was late again (got in after mdnight sometime) so we sat in the (very nice) Milwaukee airport for a while. There were no places to eat, but I got coffee and the way the guy messed up the change to badly that he actually paid me like 47 cents to drink the coffee. I swear I didn't realize until much later and then I felt silly about the whole thing. There is the new (well, probably not very new) kind of airport advertising. While we waited for Linda we watched this huge TV that showed us little videos of various kinds of airport food being made and consumed. We are talking not-very-subtle advertising here. Watching Cinnibons being made over and over again when the actual Cinnibon stand is closed is just not right. And the part were the video showed someone taking their tray of Burger King food and then filling up their soda was just so very exciting. We we laughing very hard, and airport security kept walking by and looking at us like we were going to cause problems. Then, Linda's flight arrived and we held up a sign that said "Linda with one L" because that was some kind of joke we always had with her but none of us remember the origins. She walked out cracking up about the sign. And its great to half Linda visiting- 2 1/2 years is too long!!
