Our errant travelers have been found. And delivered.
A little after 6:00 AM, I went to the phone, saw the flashing red light, and pressed the button to recover our messages.
"You have no voice mail."
That was odd, I thought. Then what's with the flashing light? Then I noticed the voice was continuing.
"You have one text message."
Okay, that's odd, too, I thought. But the machine said I could retrieve my text message by pressing a button. So I pressed that button.
"We are connecting you."
And I was connected. And told the nice little lady that I understood I had a text message. She located it, and read it to me.
"Contact the bell desk."
That was the message in its entirety.
"Would you like me to connect you?"
A pleasant young man answered.
I spoke. "This, is..."
I didn't get to finish.
"Yes, sir. We have your bags here. Would you like us to bring them up?"
And, in just a matter of a few short minutes, came the knock on the door.
I asked him to leave them there because the Wife was still in bed, not yet awake.
I gave him his tip, and we both departed happy. He had the easiest luggage delivery ever. And I had my luggage.
And then I found the reason for the delay.
That's a story all in itself.
