No, just ignoring you. 😉 

The weekend was really something. I had an okay time but I sure was glad to hit the pillow late last night when I got home. Really tired. Security was insane even though Michigan lets a lot of stuff go (more on that later). 

I was in the Detroit Metro airport yesterday and I hear my name over the intercom. They wanted me to go to the TSA desk. Already went through security, what's the deal? I got in. That airport is one of the biggest I have ever been to. I found TSA where fortunately it was the gate I went into. 

They had my wallet. I didn't even realize I didn't have it. I can't figure out what happened. When I got through security I sat down but there was no reason why I would have taken it out of my pocket. THB had a good point. She figured when you take everything out of your pockets and almost get naked I probably left it in one of those bins when you go through security. 

The agents obviously made sure I was the right person so they gave me some questions, what is your name (which they already said over the intercom anyway 🙄 ), address, that kind of thing. I still had my boarding pass so I showed them that and this guy just handed it to me. I looked through it, all my money and everything else was there.

So if I understand correctly, you were being a lazy ass? 😛

This is kind of neat. Last afternoon I am getting off of a plane in Chicago. When you are leaving and the staff, flight attendants, etc. are being nice and all of that the pilot looks at my shirt. It's an old ABB shirt from like 1999 or something. He looks at me and says "Eat A Peach".  I was kind of taken aback. I didn't want to hold up the line so I didn't really say anything to him. 

I get in the airport and I go to the gate, just waiting for when I could get on the plane. Sat at the bar. This guy sees my shirt and he asks me if I've ever heard of Gov't Mule. So I told him yes. Many times. We got going on Red Rocks and this guy knew all sorts of stuff. 

My flight sucked but that was pretty cool. What are are the odds?

Her birthday. She's probably entitled.

Long day - played golf, lunch afterwards, card game after that, and then drinks with a different group of friends.  This retirement stuff is tough ...

I heard from a friend a few hours ago that I haven't heard from in literally four months. Nobody in our circle of friends has. She disappeared. She was simply gone. We are all understandably worried. You wonder what could have happened. She dead, in jail, just picked up and left? I even went to her estranged girlfriend and she knows nothing. Her mom won't tell us anything but I was glad to get the message. I know it's from her because nobody else would have sent the message she sent to me so that is good.

That's a pretty weird story Lee (well, most of yours are ... 😀 ).  We had a neighbor ghost us about a year and a half ago.  My wife used to go out with her and one of her friends.  She just started avoiding us and never speaks to us ... even though we see her outside.  She used to come over and hang out and have a beer once in a while.  My wife even put a note in her mailbox that basically said 'I don't know if it was something I did or said, but I'm sorry and want to stay good neighbors.  Nothing - she never responded and hasn't talked to us since .... looks like she doesn't really talk to any of the neighbors now ... just strange.

So very sorry to hear this. Met her briefly at a Red Rocks show. No doubt a horribly bad time for Joe.

My only two airline securities stories are somewhat unique. 

In college got called to report to the "entrance desk" which I'd already checked into. Had typical long hair but otherwise didn't "look suspicious." Told I fit "a profile." Back then you could hand a note to a stewardess "fly us to Havana." And they would. They told me the FBI wanted to clear me for flight. I said wott if I refuse? You ain't get on the plane. The FBI suggested we step into a stairwell to frisk me. I said, do it right here. So palms against the way I got cleared. Have to admit I enjoyed the OMG looks from the rest of the passengers before and during the flight. 

The other memorable airport experience was a bunch of unfamiliar guests of the groom who had flown into O'Hara airfield and we're waiting on a few others. We were in a bar that went by the name of the longitude and latitude of where we were. One of the assembled thought it would be a good idea for us to smoke a joint. This was late '70's,not a cool idea at all. 

We did it anyway.

Playing two rounds of golf tomorrow - my regular 6:30 tee time and then a charity scramble at noon at a different course.   Should be fun - hope my body survives ....
