    My Trip Report

    I was afraid work commitments might derail this trip, but the green light has been given and everything is a go! Flight leaves tomorrow evening. I have downloaded Tapatalk and am going to give this live update thing a shot. We will see how it goes.

    I am playing the WSOP Senior's event, and when I am done with that I will be camped out at the 1/2NL tables.

    Stay tuned..............

    Hope you do well in your WSOP tournament. I remember watching it on tv so many years ago and just finding it fascinating. I always liked the guy in the cowboy hat. What was him name? Doyle? Something like that?

    Doyle Brunson. A true legend of the game. I actually ran into him (not literally) a couple of years ago at the Bellagio. Nice guy.

    uploadfromtaptalk1466024698168.jpg It has begun. Used park and ride for the first time since I knew the airport lots were full. Could not have been easier.

    A new twist from Southwest. No more lines. Just self serve kiosks where you get to do it all yourself, including tagging the bag.

    Sprung for the early bird option for the outbound leg. I would say it paid off.

    A little drama for the day. Came across a live news report. Apparently there was a little problem on Jet Blue flight 282.
