Joachim Carels from On the way to JFK

I am leaving for Vienna Austria later today. I have a "free" ticket but to get the free ticket I have to fly through London, Heathrow and Paris, Charles de Gaulle (7 hour layover) and then finally on to Vienna about 24 hours later. I sure hope that Heathrow is cleared up tomorrow. It might be a really bad trip or maybe really fine. I do get to fly business.

My husband was pleasantly surprised to find out that we have a large game of poker on Christmas. To my family's chagrin, he has taken home a couple hundred dollars 3 years in a row! He really likes coming to my house for Christmas now.
