I spent the morning working at our hospital in Los Angeles. Afterwards, I wound my way to LAX. I know that I am repeating myself, but the traffic in Southern California is amazing. Luckily, I planned the day with enough time on both ends of my morning stop.
Over the course of the short two day trip, I used Waze extensively. I have always been fascinated by the ability to plug in a place and navigate right to it. More and more, I have realized that I have lost any spacial overview of where I am. I really started feeling that way during the spring training trip this year and the feeling was reenforced on this trip.
I was booked on a 1:50 pm Southwest flight from the Los Angeles airport back to Sacramento. Most of the day, the flight said that it was delayed to 2:05 pm. When I got through security and looked at the departure board, every Southwest flight was delayed. The flight eventually took off about 2:40 pm and I was back in Sacramento just before 4:00 pm. Although I had an A40 boarding pass on Thursday and A42 on Friday, I got the exit row aisle seat both days!
Sharon and I finished the night having some wine and hors d'oeuvres with our neighbors Mike and Jill. Sharon had recommended a couple of wineries (Donum Estate and Lynmar Estates) to them for a recent trip to the coast with their friends. They were so pleased with the recommendations that they invited over to share a bottle from Lynmar. We took Tiber with us. It was after 11:00 pm by the time we wandered back across the street...
