PRAY FOR THE LEG !!!

U.S. freakin Airways claims that they have FINALLY found my aunt's luggage! Her artificial leg is in there (hopefully!)

She booked U.S. Airways and they ended up putting her on "U.S. Airways operated by United operated by United Express/Atlantic Airways connecting to America West". Good lord! Just try to find missing luggage when THAT is your itinerary. All you get is "you've called the wrong airline". Two days on the phone is VERY TOUGH on the right ear let me tell you!

she hasn't got the bag yet but we're praying that the leg is still in there!

Yikes! The Griswold family definitely joins this prayer-train. We've lost luggage before...it's not pretty. But at least we could WALK while we waited.

Is it a good idea to check your artificial leg? I would keep that with me in a carry-on. If a bag is lost, that would be the one.

I hope your aunt's leg is recovered. I can't imagine anyone taking it -- how awful (and sick) that would be!!

I hope your aunt finds the leg.

She won't be able to sue U.S. Airways. She doesn't have a leg to stand on!

Joan

They get worse:

I once stopped for a one legged hitchhiker. When he got to the car, I told him to hop in.

Did you hear about the one legged politician? He was out stumping for votes.

Do you suppose that when the baggage was scanned or Xrayed or whatever, they saw the image of a leg and felt compelled to open the suitcase considering it "suspicious", causing a delay of that leg?

Tracy's aunt could have been carrying a spare prosthetic in her checked bag. That's my supposition.

Tracy, I hope she gets it back. They ain't cheap, are they?!

Don't panic Tracy....if someone stole it they won't get very far on one leg.

Tracy, thanks for keeping us up to date--let us know what happens. In the meantime, I will pray for the leg!

Did anyone else get attacked by Dumbo?!? Oh yeah, that makes me want to go to Disney World.

I did AnnMarie. Once again, there is no apparent place to "off" him.

We may all have to pray for tracys2cents
if her aunt finds out she has postings about her missing leg on a website.
I do hope the leg is returned safely though.
I am a nurse and I must say have had some fun with legs we have found lying around in hospitals - but nurses do have a sick sense of humor you know.
We never absconded with the leg though -
just had some fun with it -

I knew a guy who had an artificial arm stolen. When they caught the culprit, they charged him with armed robbery.

Thanks Malesherbes, I couldn't find the "close" button either but wondered if I missed it.
