One More For The Road

A couple of "road" related notes here...

First, I'm down to the last payment on my truck. This is a good thing. I'll finally own it outright. I can't wait until I have the title in my hand and don't have to keep sending anyone money on a monthly basis. {At least not for that.}

It's also a good thing because I had purchased an extended warranty that was supposed to last as long as my payments. It ran out over 25,000 miles ago. Yes, I meant miles, not kilometers, since it was bought in the U.S. of A.


Second, I'm not here right now. I wish I was here, but I'm really over there somewhere.

Last Wednesday (Sept. 20) I flew the San Diego, California on the company dime for training. I was there until this afternoon. {Remind me to tell you about my last couple of hours in San Diego.} {Actually, I'll tell you about the whole trip over the next week of so.}

Right now I'm sitting in the airport in Phoenix, Arizona waiting for my connecting flight back to Boston. It is scheduled to touch down at Logan around 5:00AM. {AM!! That's before the sun gets up.} Then I'll get a couple hours sleep before getting in my truck and driving the 300 miles to see TWIL and spend a couple of days with her.

I can't tell you how much I'm looking forward to it. I've been missing her soooo much...

In fact, I'm going to sign off for now and give her a call.



  1. Hm, I'm going to Phoenix (ok, Scottsdale, whatever) in early November.

    And I just recently back from California (Irvine, not San Diego) at... oh, about 6:00 AM.

    Perhaps we should both get different travel agents...

  2. Actually, due to delays I got in even later. I think we do need new travel agents...

    Too bad we were in similar places at different times. It might have been nice to put a face with the name and raise a glass or two.

  3. Agreed. Eventually, perhaps... just have to inhabit each other's blog comments for now I guess :)
