Let's just say that a private jet would be nice. Very nice. Just showing up and leaving as soon as you sit down, instead of waiting around, waiting some more, having your flight delayed, showing up in Chicago only to discover your next flight has been cancelled, and that there's only one seat available on the last flight for the day.
Toben did some wheeling and dealing and we managed to find one of the last cars available at O'Hare. So we had a lovely drive from Chicago to South Bend--mostly in the dark.
My one thought before bed--it's cold here.
