It is what makes the WS forum so unique and special. Wink

All kidding aside, I do enjoy this forum being somewhat self-policed with few exceptions.

Wien?

Have you been able to find the Art you were seeking?
KSC02, bought a piece today, and looking for one more perhaps.

I and my bottle of Gruner Veltliner greet you from snowy Vienna.

Looking forward to hearing more about it.
Who's the artist? Can you send a pic?
KSC02, bought an Antonio Tapies, (shipping to states tomorrow) and just received a counter to my offer on a different piece from a different artist... The game is on!! Big Grin

I'm already back. You talk about lucky too. The flight I took home yesterday not only made it back to DFW it made it back early. Cool However, that same flight the two days prior and again today was canceled. Eek If I could drive in this crap I'd go buy some lottery tickets!

Sorry to miss you as well.

My wines are now resting in a fridge in my room. I have an excellent suite overlooking the baseball stadium, and enjoying the warm day from the balcony. Cool

Enjoy your trip, Red guy!

At airport currently in sunny San Diego, and heading home to sunny Dallas.

Enjoyed an off-line last night, and will let GA or other forum member list out our wines. Smile

w+a, I'm jealous. I love San Diego, especially in winter. It's such a beautiful city. Was there last November, and it was a comfortable 78 degrees. Dallas looks like mid-60s right now. I'd settle for that.
Vegas baby! Cool

And 4 cases of wine from Grapes the Wine Company waiting for me on arrival. Biale Black Chicken zin with delivery pizza and an early night tonight, day began too early and the last flight was sardine-city..... Frown
Panama City. Panama.

Was in the former Canal Zone this afternoon, at a meeting in an office in a former senior executive's residence. Very cool to see how the American canal administrators and workers used to live.
The JW Marriott hotel in Mexico City.

Very cool, classy, wonderful hotel. Wish I'd discovered Mexico City and this hotel before now. Cool

Forgot to mention that this is also the best Concierge Lounge ever - not only the usual free breakfast buffet, but also a free dinner buffet! Plus some free laundry. Never got either of the latter two anywhere else.

When will you be back in Ottawa? P-Boy needs to know so he can kick out the party and start the clean-up.
2012. But as you know, the person in question no longer does such menial work, or at least he won't as of August..... Wink
After a 6 week party, his future is secured. I should email you and tell you what's been happening with my son. If I post it hgere, I'll either be accused of bragging or lying. Smile

Toronto or Montreal office?
Thanks K. Toronto, Yonge at Bloor. We'll be there helping him find a place to live after he graduates. And we'll be in Ottawa a week after that for a few days - perhaps you and the gang would fancy a road trip to an offline?

Very quick trip One day here [need to take care of mother medicaid & hospital issues] and then to NJ. Just hitting folks on Rt 14.
Flagstaff. Staying at Inn 410, a B&B. Ate on Thursday night at Brix. Highly recommended. Great wine list, terrific menu. Last night ate at Cottage Inn. Enjoyed that as well. Trying to walk off the calories by hiking in the canyons, mountains, etc.

Doing that today on the way to Prescott and then Scottsdale. Ate last night at Cuvee 958, or maybe Cuvee 528, or 852. Whatever. 21 wines by the glass, but not the most interesting things. Had a duck bruschetta that was terrific, and an artisanal cheese platter with crostini and nuts. Enjoyed that as well. That's all we ate, but it was plenty. Large portions. We had eaten at The Himalayan Buffet for lunch and were pretty stuffed despite the exercise.

It was really nice to hike in the canyons at 55 degrees. Oddly, it was 75 on Friday in Baltimore and my friends went out and played golf w/o me. Frown But, Flagstaff is very beautiful. I could see retiring here.
We leave today, and tomorrow they may get a dusting of snow.

They are running the New as we speak, but I'm not a cold weather rafter. More a June/July kinda guy on that piece of water. We went for the drives (some of the best twisties in the country) and the country air. We did some tree canopy zip-lining that was quite memorable, though! Fun stuff. Planning on heading down in the fall to run the Gauley when they open the dam. If I don't chicken out..... Red Face
