    Well, heck. Seriously, unless it has to be in your name, I'd totally pay the taxes to use that. Taxes would be significantly less than a RT from PDX to NYC...

    Took the voucher. I can use it from JFK so it’s a no brainer.

    Does the voucher have residual value, or is it just good for a RT to/from JFK? If residual value, then you can get your taxes-worth of the $1300 value. If just a RT, I guess you could dispute the value.

    Either way, congrats on the win.

    I received an amusing e-mail from AMEX customer care.
    "Based on recent transactions, it appears that you may be traveling soon."
    So three international and 22 domestic trips are a warm up?

    Hey! It’s BBQ Thursday in Utrecht. Over at Beers and Barrels, where they do a good bit of their food in Big Green Eggs. Optimistic, but pragmatic. :)

    Hello, Box. It hard to imagine it's been a month since the birthdays of @SpecialK and also Archie, which is short for Archipelago of Stars, the name of the little paint horse. She's gonna be a tall drink o' water.

    Today she had her four-week picture session, and when she was done, she had a little time to play with the Puppy while her mom (named Estrella for short, hence the pun-named baby) was still distracted with grain. Here's two photos:

    _Puppy_Colt.1.jpg

    _Puppy_Colt.2.jpg

    In other farm news, the sheep have arrived in McHenry Co., IL, where they're spending the summer. So no cute lamb photos.

    Howdy all.
    Alive and heading to BDL tomorrow in the early AM via PHL.
    Doing a bit of business traveling but this one is for a retirement party (not mine). Next week will be in DCA for work related stuff.

    I did have the opportunity to dine in UA F last week and it was less than amazing, to say the least. For "lunch" on a mid-con 3 hour flight, they served us a spinach salad without protein and a piece of chocolate. I suspect that the back of the plane got the usual array of "snacks" without anything else. A definite step in the wrong direction, UA :mad:.

    Anyway, this week it's AA, so I'll get to see how they do short flights. A snack basket is .....just that.

    I like the horsies :p. We have a farm near us that has paints as well (but they haven't been babies for a number of years).

    Have a great weekend.

    Because I cannot get out of the loop of 404 and 504 errors, I cannot log off Inside Flyer. It will literally be a miracle if this post goes through.

    Since this gives me an excuse to show Archie's right side markings, here she's resting while her mom chows down on a couple pounds of feed. You can see the sweat on Esta's rump; not long before, the two of them had run the better part of a mile at various speeds in high 80's heat. You can't see the sweat on the foal, but you can almost stand there and watch her shoulder muscles growing.

    With this, I've used my quota of animal pictures at least until fall lambs appear.

    As a city dweller who knows nothing at all about animals and who is tired of seeing of all those "my doggie" pictures, I find your shots of that foal to be fascinating.

    So, as far as I am concerned, you have no "quota of animal pictures" if any of them are as great as those you posted today.
