It's settled. Eric's coming to town for Thanksgiving, and he's going to be flying, so he'll have more time here! He'll come in on Wednesday afternoon and head out Sunday afternoon, which totally rocks.
Darndest thing, though - he's flying from Oklahoma City to Salt Lake City, Utah, and then from Utah to Chicago. As counterintuitive as that seems, it was the cheapest flight. So much for energy crises, eh?
