25 June 2010 | Denver Airport
I have a 2 hour layover at the Denver airport waiting for my flight to Ontario California. Positive - they have a café that has wifi, allows smoking, hot tea to drink, great view of the snow covered mountains and nice people to chat with, so I am a happy camper. Chatted to a couple of guys that were excited to be going to their first Gay Pride parade in San Francisco, unfortunately their flight is delayed due to Frisco being fogged in but I think they decided to start the party anyway, having several Mimosa's while they wait.

Sitting here, I just received a phone call from Overton's, the Avon life raft that I ordered has been discontinued for the American market, strange. Will need to look for another brand I guess. They did ship the EPIRB that I ordered. For the non-sailors an EPIRB is basically an emergency beacon that will relay our position if we should need to abandon ship, one piece of equipment I hope to never need to use.

Thoughts on flying - I have no fear of flying but I do have several other fears related to flying, a couple of which I experienced on the flight here:

1. Sitting next to a person who decides it is acceptable to take ½ of my seat as well as their own.
2. Having a 4 year old constantly kicking the seat in front of them, the one I am sitting in.

Otherwise an uneventful flight, which is good.

Bill is heading up to the boat today for our Coast Guard inspection tomorrow morning. If we pass inspection we will get a sticker to put on the mast. It is good to have one incase we get stopped by the Coast Guard in the future.

So far, still enjoying my "retirement", in actuality it feels like I am on vacation and still need to go back to work.

My son Chris had last minute change in plans, instead of going to school in Lebabon this summer he decided to go backpacking in Turkey, Greece and eastern Europe. He should be home late July.

Time to sign off, looking forward to seeing my Mom and Sister here shortly.
