    I guess I picked a bad day to fly

    Sitting here at Lexington Ky trying to get to San Antonio, and my flight is delayed because of a shooting at LA.
    The bad part, is,the airport designation for LA airport is LAX and where I'm at it's LEX.
    You would not believe the people calling me to see if I'm ok, or was involved, lol.

    Oh well, guess I'll go have a shot or two of something in the lounge while I wait.
    Might as well get on board happy, since it's already delayed.

    Wife's family is opening up a restaurant Frio County, and she's there helping. So I'm going to see her and plan my retirement move.

    Bottoms up and I hope you have a not too belated reunion.

    Retiring to Texas?

    Bummer of a travel day.

    Back when I flew all the time, the only way I could deal with it was with a few drinks. My liver likes me a lot better now.

    Yes. I figure someone needs to get down there and keep an eye on bmcgilvray and Jonconsiglio.
    Besides, Texas has a history of taking in shooters from Kentucky and Tennessee:)

    Probably a good idea I chose a Stetson instead of my " Armed Infidel" ball cap, lol.
