Back in Town

Back in town from what turned out to be a "comedy of errors" business trip (Reno and Yerington).

Night 1 - set off the burglar alarm trying to get the truck out of storage and was "locked into" the storage facility after hours....with the alarm sirens blaring and the mechanical voice yelling "burglary, burglary, burglary." Not at all embarrassing.

Night 2 - the door to my hotel room breaks and I can't get in. After about 30 minutes of laying in the hallway singing various iterations of "nobody knows the trouble I've seen" and watching hotel personnel try one maneuver after another to gain me ingress, they finally end up breaking the window to let me in. Can't believe it took them so long to figure that out. Generally people will move mountains to get me to stop singing.

Day 3 - when checking out of my hotel, I inadvertently turn in my ID with my hotel room key, which I realize after being dropped off at the airport.

I hit the trifecta, eh?!?

In any event, I am back and will resume posting.
