Well Couples could not do it and Mickelson did.

My lefty won and the underdog did not. A most enjoyable afternoon though.

Good friends, good eats and cold beer. What can I say?

I think they've jumbled up the letters in our names - lost a J, added an L and mixed us up. Jeanne is the one becoming an Aunt, not me.

Besides, I'm already a Great-Aunt (in addition to being a great Aunt).

Marc: we're having a Sedar supper at our church on Thursday as part of our Holy Week observances. Only, being Lutheran, it's a pot luck. I won't be there as I have a sales meeting in Denver that day.

And reading upside down is a required skill in sales. How can you read the proposals from your competitor on the consulting engineer's desk otherwise?

Elaine, I think that I caused the "aunt-in-waiting" gaff. Mea culpa. The Sedar at your chuch is a grand idea. Helps to bring faiths together. Shalom.

Elaine, every time I read of your upcoming travels, I pause to give thanks that period of my life is over. I hated the travel, the airports and the hassle. Don't miss it one little bit. Gimme a land yacht every time!

I think I paid back tonight for comments about west coast climate earlier. Dog's feet were so muddy after her last sniff of the night in the back yard that I had to share my bath water with her. Took mine first, I hasten to add.

It's not all bad, Don, but the allure of business travel fades after about 6 months and I've been doing this for a LONG time. Back when I started my own company I was so poor that I had to stay at the worst motels ... you know, the ones where you slept on the TOP of the bed and didn't even take your shoes off. And don't even think about the showers. *shudder* (Most seasoned road warriors know what I mean.)

Now I get to stay at a slightly higher calibre hotel. But ... it's still a hotel. Miss snuggling the husband and home cooked meals.

And, yeah, the airports get to me. The lineups and the hassles - especially when going south. I'll be spending more time in airports and on airplanes than I will be at the actual meeting this week. Next trip isn't so bad though - conference in Whistler at the end of the month. No airport, no airplane - just a ferry ride and a nice drive and only three days (two nights) away.

I'd hire someone to do this job, but nobody else is stupid enough to take the job.

Ann, doxies, being so low to the ground, get really dirty in wet weather.

I travelled for 32 years Elaine, so I know what it is like.

I did get a break though in that I travelled by corporate jet from 1985 through 1994. I had care and control as the booking exec for our corporate jet from 1990 to 1994 when the company who bought us decided it was an unnecessary luxury. Best travel times of my life. Personal plane, pilots and all the trimmings.

I enjoyed the travel immensely for those 10 years.

I hate flying (all the hassel and discomfort) but don't mind hotels, although I haven't stayed in any real dumps. Liking hotels could be because they are much cleaner than the dump I live in.

I have, a couple times recently, been on a 3 city trip or had two sets of trips very near to each other. By the third hotel in 3 or 4 days a sense of disconnection sets in for me. A feeling of not having a home. That's a little weird.
