Late night

Our flight departed Baltimore on time. I had put us in for a first class upgrade and we were waitlisted. I was #5 and Kelly was #9. I figured that I’d get the upgrade and she wouldn’t and I was prepared to let her take my seat in first class. I did get upgraded, but then, much to our surprise, so did Kelly. It worked out well. Comfortable seats, and good food and drinks for the 3-1/2 hour flight.

We arrived in Denver at about 7:15 local. Headed to Hertz to pick up the rental car. I had brought my GPS with me but we didn’t need it. The car had one in it. It was a 30 minute drive to Kelly’s friends Steph and Jim, with whom we are staying. We got there, said hello, and then walked over to a pub next door for dinner where we spent a few hours chatting. By the time we got to bed last night, it was after midnight and I had been up for 22 hours.

My iPhone went into some kind of fit when I got off the plane last night. The screen froze and I couldn’t even power it down. I had to wait for the batteries to run out. When they did and I plugged it in, all was well again.

This morning we are heading over to see Kelly’s brother and nephew. In the evening a bunch of us are going to Lucky Strikes for bowling. The sky is bright and clear right now. Going up to 51 in Denver today.
