I'm off!

Tomorrow at this time I'll be awaiting my flight to Chicago. Hopefully, I'll make it to the top, but I hear there's going to be firefighters, so maybe if my legs give out, one will carry me the rest of the way. I can dream, can't I?

I can't thank all those who donated enough. I didn't think anyone would give money, truthfully, certainly not my "imaginary" internet friends. Certainly not my wonderful niece and nephew-in-law all the way in Korea. Thank you, thank you, thank you. Check back next week for pics of the grand event.

Today I gotta get it all together in order to be at JFK on time. I think the train to JFK is actually longer than the flight itself. I could have left from Newark, but it would have meant a layover in, I think, Kuala Lumpur. I can't spend that much time in an airport, I get hives. Also, I have to make sure my travel bag is devoid of such stuff as nail clippers and unmarked containers, lest I get tasered by the TSA. (Sorry, I really love the TSA. Please don't put me on the no-fly list.)

Anyhoo, after all that train to the plane to the train to my destination, there's a promise of deep dish pizza and beer. I can't wait.

Oh, yeah...Change of Shift is up!!! Now with video!!

Take care. Don't forget it's one step at a time. And don't forget to breathe!

Good Luck. Have a great time!

That's right -- I think I promised someone I'd by you an Old Style, didn't I?!?

Well, I promised I'd DRINK an Old Style. But if you're buying...and since we're climbing a LOT of steps early in the manana, it'll be ONE old style.

You only live once -- OK, sometimes you get a second chance -- you have to grab for the gusto while you have the ability to grab!!!

Personally -- I'll be having a Guinness (hopefully) -- but I'll drink it from an Old Style can for sentimentality sake if necessary...

I hope the weather backs off!!!
