Howdy, folks. It’s been a very productive day in Tampa today. The weather is nice, and I got a lot done. We got out to the new Dali Museum first thing this morning, and I interviewed the contractors while the Googled-Hired Photographer took spectacular photographs. After that, we bustled off to McDill Air Force Base and enjoyed Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II in the lobby while I had by background checked (I have new respect for the Air Force now). Then, we ate lunch and the salesman dropped me off at the hotel where I have caught up my email and started on the Dali story. It has to be approved by both the project manager’s office and the mechanical contractor’s office before it can be printed, so I need to get it done very quickly.
Sounds like the weather at home is dreadful, so we’ll see if I actually get into Wichita tomorrow. I may spend the night in Houston.
Anyway, things down here are great. I’m looking forward to getting home, though.
Hey, all. In case you were wondering, today was pretty fantastic. It was about 70 all day. The one downside is that we were supposed to be able to go to Busch Gardens to photograph a roller coaster that is going to have a ton of our products installed on it, but the contractor sort of changed his mind and told us we couldn’t go. =( I’m kind of bummed, actually. I really wanted to go.
But that’s okay.
We went to this GINORMOUS house on Manasota Key. It’s 25,000 square feet, has 8 fire places, a 20-car garage, five spiral staircases and an elevator. And it’s also full of our products, so we got a lot of good pictures.
The photographer I hired by way of Google seems to be a nice guy, and the salesman I’m hanging out with is also a very nice guy.
We’re chilling in a Panera at the moment becuase the hotel we’re staying in has an internet wifi connection that runs about as slowly as a snail. So we’re both catching up on email and I’m drinking a huge cup of very strong coffee.
Tampa is kind of odd. Nice but odd.
And silly NOAA keeps saying that the weather on the way home is going to suck big time, so we’ll see if I make it home when I’m supposed to. I purposely picked a flight that goes through Houston on the way home. The other option was Chicago, and I figured they’d be getting hammered too.
So, we’ll see what happens.
Thanks to everyone who prayed for me today. Please keep those prayers coming. I really really appreciate it!!!!
