The good news is, Marty came home after being gone on a business/pleasure trip for 8 days. The good news is, I got to go pick him up from the airport. The good news is, I got to drive the van, so we'd have room for all his luggage when he landed. The good news is, I got a really great parking spot, close to the "arrivals" door. The BAD news is, the parking spot was in a covered lot that wasn't quite tall enough for the van and the tule box (snowboard box) on top!!!! OUCH!!!
