This weekend is Grandma's 90th birthday party. I've known about this for a month now; not much advance notice, but still a fair amount of time. In the birthday card she sent me, she asked if I would come (since she hopes it's her last).

I was thinking about flying into Omaha, somebody picking me up, then leaving Saturday morning for Fort Dodge. It was this past Saturday when I finally got next weekend off and checked online for airline tickets, though didn't buy any.

Two days ago they were anywhere between $300-$350. I just checked now, and I can't find anything less than $460.

That's not feasible. Looks like I'm driving....
