Friends, My apologies for the group e-mail, but I am sending many copies of this message and need a response quickly, so the message has to go out to each of you right away. Greetings from North Carolina. Rosanne and I finished a 1000-mile road trip to Durham on Friday night. I will be flying back to Iowa on Tuesday afternoon Oct 21, & I need a ride from Cedar Rapids airport. My flight is scheduled to arrive at 12:45PM. >>Can you help? > If you can't pick me up at 12:45, but you could do so somewhat later, I have > 2 other options: 1. If you could arrive a bit later [45 min., 1 hour, etc], I could wait for you at the airport. 2. If you could come later in the afternoon, I can take a flight that arrives at 4:05PM [also could wait extra time for that flight]. Of course I will gladly cover your cost of gas for your car. If you don't have a car but can spare the time to pick me up, you can use my car, and I can arrange for you to get the key from my next door neighbor. If you need some compensation for your time, I can offer something modest, but I would like to avoid paying the $80/$100 (or more) charged by the paid ride services in Fairfield. If you are not free to help but know someone who could, please check with him/her as soon as possible and let me know by early evening today. Best way to reach me is to call 323-908-3239 [not a cell, but it's a number that will reach me (or voice mail) here in NC]. You can also reply via e-mail. Thanks in advance for taking the time to reply. Best regards, John
