Sung to the tune of She’ll Be Coming Round The Mountain When She Comes. Yes, our daughter Tiffany will be coming to visit us next week. Or the week after. Or in early May. Or mid-May. Or maybe the end of May. Who knows? But I believe she will arrive eventually.
Tiffany was originally scheduled to arrive here around the 26th of this month and stay for a week or two. But something in the airline schedule would have made it almost 24 hours from the time she left her small town airport in northern Arizona until she arrived here, with long layovers in Phoenix and Charlotte, North Carolina. So she did some finagling with the schedule and announced that she would be here on the 24th instead, two days early. No problem, looking forward to it.
Then when her brother Travis and his wife Geli said they planned to visit toward the end of May, things went into a tizzy. Travis lives in Alabama and Tiffany lives in Arizona, and they don’t have many opportunities to get together. So Tiffany decided she might only spend a week with us during her first visit, then fly back again when Travis and Geli were here. Okay, fine, it would be great to have everybody together again.
Then, a day or two later, Tiffany called to say that she was in a quandary because her kids are being schooled at home due to Covid-19, and she wasn’t sure about leaving them on their own this close to the end of the school year. She asked if we would be terribly upset if she canceled the April visit altogether and came when Travis was here and then stayed a few days after he and Geli left. Again, whatever works is fine with us.
Of course, that’s not the end of the story because the first flight she booked would have had her arriving just after midnight, which was no problem for us to pick her up at the airport in Daytona Beach since we are night owls anyhow. But Tiffany hoped to revise the schedule to arrive at a more reasonable hour. The last I heard is that she will be flying into Daytona Beach on Friday, May 28, at 11:03 AM. Yeah, I’ll believe it when I see it. She’ll Be Coming Off The Airplane When She Comes
