So, Happy Birthday! Tough luck about the trip cancellation, but c'est la
guerre. In my case, I would've been relieved, but that's just cuz I'm an *old*
fart. I had my frequent flyer fun years ago, with things like spending 7 hours
in the air one day (ORD-LAX-ORD with favorable jet-stream tailwind on the way
back), plus 2 hours in the car, an hour in a rental car, plus another hour
hanging around airports, all so I could attend an hour long meeting in LA.
Too bad I didn't know RK's birthdate some months ago. I could've wished him a
Happy Now-You're-Half-As-Old-As-I-Am Day last June 15th.
