Darn, where is that umbrella? I'm sure we brought one with us when we moved to New Mexico.

I'm in the SD airport. So far pretty easy. Got my dose of X-rays at that machine that strips you naked (optically) and checks for hidden ... well ... let's call it "junk". Mostly they saw my Hanes underwear, I'm thinking.

Hopefully I can get a week's worth of work done on the plane. I can't believe I'm so far behind!

But here's an indication of how happy I am to be out of town: I dreamed about the WIA last night. Unfortunately it was a bit of a disappointment. Hopefully the real thing will be much better!

I'm guessing that what was missing was some of the local chili.

We were talking to a sommelier here at the hotel (he gave us quite a lesson on bourbon) and he said we just had to try a 3-way while we were here.

That really got Fred's attention! But it turned out he was talking about this: Skyline.

That 3-way looks pretty good!

The charming and adorable LB just left MSP. She had a 2-1/2 hour layover here, so we met for breakfast and to chat. I'm jealous that you guys will have her company for several days and I only got a couple hours.

Have a good trip everyone.

Is everyone staying at the Embassy Suites kitty-corner from the convention center? Free drinks in the hotel's atrium every night between 5:30 and 7:30. PM, of course.

We're hanging out in the Reno airport waiting to leave. I set off the bells going through security and Sherry thought we won a jackpot.

Yeah, and the prize is a strip search.

I just saw Michael Kellough and Craig Feuerzeig, they were driving around looking for a place to park a Winnebago.
