One thousand pounds for an elephant?
It’s outrageous! You’ve been diddled.

Undoubtedly.
But it’s not often one needs an elephant in a hurry.

I’ll be headed to Seattle next week on business. I’ve always wanted to visit. The best friend of my youth, Rich Davis, is living up in Washington State and we’ll be getting together for dinner one evening. I haven’t seen him in over 12 years…maybe 15. We were pretty inseparable for most of our teenage years. People used to call us Heckle and Jeckle.

Pike Place Market, a cup of coffee at the original Starbuck’s and dinner at The Space Needle are all on the agenda.

When I get back I have a short time before I re-pack and catch a flight to Galway Ireland to participate in an IT project. We’re migrating the two international corporate NT domains. That should be fun. As luck would have it, Owen Finn will be there on one of the days I’m visiting so I’ll get to meet his family. I’ll also be entertained by members of the “Irish Contingent” on their home turf.

I’m taking a few extra days to take in the sights.

After that it’s only a few months before Cynthia and I head of to Spain for our 30 day adventure that we’ve been planning for the last year.

  1. You will love Seattle. Hopefully it will be rainless as it usually is this time of year, and certainly will be cooler than Houston. Space Needle restaurant used to be good years ago, but have no idea what it’s like now. Seattle is almost as much a restaurant town as San Francisco.
