The horse with jockey picture is from the Emerald Downs racetrack here in the Seattle area where my friends and I went to check out the horse races yesterday. I bet a total of $21 and won $5.25 on the races . ( I suppose I should keep my day job, right?).
The street sign I saw on my walk in the neighborhood by my house had a nice cobweb with dew drops (which might be hard to see on the smaller picture). As I turned to cross the street a guy on a bicycle almost crashed into me. The street was eerily quiet, and so I didn’t even look up to check it was safe to cross. I’m sure that would have put a dent in my travel plans out today! Check and double check before crossing !
So here I am at Sea-Tac airport, ‘roughing’ it before I step onto Cathay Pacific in Vancouver. I have no ‘status’ (as frequent flyers call it) on Alaska Airlines or Cathay Pacific, so when I walked up to the security line I had to join a line with oh, a 100 people. Then I thought I’d check the other security point because I know all security points gets you to all the departure terminals and sure enough, there were THREE people in line at the other one. Once inside though, I have no business class lounge access, so I’m in the main dining/ shopping hall with the huge window overlooking the tarmac.
