I had to get up early to get to the San Francisco airport for my flight to Kansas City. This means I had to feed and walk my dog earlier in the morning. He didn’t complain. The morning air was crisp and refreshing. A couple of ducks were waddling down the middle of the road as if they owned it. My dog tried to run them off. He didn’t see the jack rabbit sprinting across a grass field in a nearby park a few minutes later. I’m still amazed that I get to see all this wildlife even though I live within of the vast Silicon Valley metropolis. I haven’t yet spotted any larger animals, like mountain lions. At times, the roving gangs of raccoons are the near second to that.
Anyway, I’m flying into Phoenix on my way to Kansas City. There aren’t many direct flights from the San Francisco bay area to the heart of America, despite the fact there are three international airports within driving distance of my home.
If you happen to be at this conference, please don’t hesitate to introduce yourself to me.
