We'll start with this very dignified clip of Andrea and Kathryn chair racing during a 4 + hour layover at the Monroe LA airport...

Andrea wrote:I was really looking forward to heading down to Texas last weekend for an evening of music with the Marshall Symphony. The show was a best of J&C vocalists Gavin Hope and Michael Shotton, and it spanned a wicked repertoire from Zeppelin and the Eagles to classic Motown and Mr. Wonder! A joy to sing? Yes!
Kathryn and I got an early start for our travel day to Texas, but the severe storm and broken altimeter on our plane made for an untimely emergency landing a mere 100 miles from our destination. We spent 4 hours in Monroe Louisiana airport, crossing our fingers for a new plane to arrive. Thanks to the pizza delivery, a little good humor, and our new favorite sport of airport chair racing, we didn't lose our joyful spirit, and made it to Marshall later that night.

Thanks to everyone who made the weekend spectacular. Big shouts out to Mike McMurry for driving us everywhere, to Tiffany and the team, and to the incredible people we had the privilege of meeting. Marshall is a special place. I truly can't wait to go back.

|Look! We've become such a fixture in Marshall TX they even named a menu after us!|

This trip taught me that Texas hospitality is glorious...and that a standard suitcase is just big enough to bring home my little boy's dream come true. -AK
