They're Here!!!!!!!!!

I think we are the happiest people in the world. Our DeeDee and Granddaddy arrived today. They flew Air Jamaica from Orlando to Montego Bay. When they checked in, the attendant insisted they get Daddy a wheelchair. And that was the best decision of the day. They were escorted from the ticket counter, through security and all the way out to the gate.
When they arrived in Montego Bay, Throy Durrant met them at the plane with another wheel chair and escorted them through immigration, to the baggage claim where they waited only a few minutes for their luggage. Then he took them to customs for the officials to check what was in the bags. Mama said that there were hundreds of people waiting in lines from several other flight arrivals, but they didn't have to wait in any lines because Throy took them to the front of every line and brought them all the way out to us.
When Todd brought the truck around I helped Mama and Daddy into the back with Bubby between them and I rode up front on the passenger side and Todd drove. On our way out, Mama asked Bubby if Mommy was a good driver and he told her I was. As we continued to drive along I was pointing things out to Mama and she casually said, "You better watch where you are going." I thought she was talking to Todd. In a minute she said it again, this time a little more forceful. It finally dawned on me. She thought I was driving because I was riding on the left side of the car. I told her, "Mama, I'm not driving, Todd is." So, we got a good laugh at her. We decided we need to blindfold her when she rides in the car. For those of you that don't know we drive on the left side of the road and the cars have the steering wheel on the right side.
Until next time...I'm off to enjoy my mama and daddy!
