Not My Fault

The lack of a post here yesterday was NOT my fault. The Internet connection went down in my hotel so I couldn't even post the Cheese Grater Slide photo, but that was just as well.

Most of yesterday was spent on the road, driving from Atlanta to Tifton, a 3-hour drive, then taking part in a 3-hour meeting and giving a presentation to several congressional staff members, then driving back to Atlanta, another 3-hour drive. So I was pretty worn out by the time I got back into town. I grabbed some dinner, came back to the hotel to discover no Internet connection, then watched "Lost" and hit the sack.

Today I spent all day in the office, but as I said to Cindy in a text message, my "hair was on fire" with all the work I was trying to get done. That's usually typical at the beginning of these deployments. I was so busy I didn't even get to leave the building for lunch.

One "plus" about this assignment is that our offices are located in a 12-story professional office complex. A much nicer and more work-conducive atmosphere than the usual places in which we set up camp. In the lower lobby of this building is a small cafe that serves sandwiches, salads and drinks. I went down there for lunch today and Mario, the owner working behind the counter made me think I was in a scene from an old SNL episode with the late John Belushi shouting, "Cheeseburger! Cheeseburger! Pepsi!" in a heavily accented voice, except this guy was shouting "Reuben! Club Sandwich! Turkey! You like turkey! Is good!" in a heavily accented voice.

But he was right, the turkey sandwich WAS good, lol. Even if I did have to eat it at my desk while working on reports.

Sounds like you stay pretty busy. Try to get some rest if you can. Love you and miss you. Wolfe and Tigger say hi, they are keeping your side of the bed warm.
