I'm sure we'll meet one day while we're out shooting. I thought you were coming one day with one of the guys, but it didn't happen. Maybe next time. Yes, I'm lucky and I know it. Wish everyone had someone like Anne so you could all share your interests to the level we do. Mind you there's a cost. She quickly points out when I screw up what should have been a good picture.
You'd might be surprised to know all the places she's dragged me to. Not that I mind since I like traveling. But I travel almost constantly on business, so I leave many of the decisions for vacations to her. But we're divers so islands like GCM we frequently visit (we have a timeshare there). You should see what she wants to do now.
You know about the special fares to ride Concorde one way and fly back on a 744. Well that didn't really hit either of our fancies since we flew the Concorde back in '89 on a round-trip to LHR
, you know "been there done that" kind of thing. Well this weekend she saw an ad for a one-way on Concorde and the return on the QE2. Since the QE2 is retiring also this is really a once-in-a-lifetime thing. So I have a feeling this is going to happen and, of course, it will have to be soon.
You guys should have seen her reactions yesterday watching the C5, F-15's and F-18's at the Stewart Air Show. She was like a kid in a candy shop. She loved Fat Albert and really got a kick out of watching the main gear rotate 90 degrees on the C5.
Anyhow, good luck to you all, BigPhilNYC included, who are still searching for your soulmate. They're out there. The job is to find them and know it when you do.
