PA Wedding

Last Thursday we left bright and early (think 5am) for the airport.  After a short flight and a layover in Midway, we reached PA.  We also discovered that a certain Southwest crew in Midway likes to begin boarding 45 minutes before takeoff; this is unfortunate, since we did not get to sit together (Southwest has…

Thanksgiving Break

November 27, 2008 – This year we made the annual trip back East for Thanksgiving break.

Thanks to everyone we saw, and for…

Trip to NY Fun, New Phone, New Car

I (Tony) just want to say that the past weekend was a lot of fun. While Louisa and I ended up heading up to Buffalo to visit her parents, we got to check out a lot of interesting places and do a lot of visiting. We started the weekend by getting in to Buffalo late…
