It all began with WXPN...

We were going to meet there, but ref found a more quiet location around the corner. Beers were had, as were cheese fries.

Discussion was pleasant and became more relaxed after greenitalics realized we weren't going to kidnap and murder him.

He was also kind enough to take us on a super amazing walking tour of the U of P. Well done sir.

Thank you both for making the effort on this PERfECT evening.

Dude, do you realize you can fly from Philly to Toronto tomorrow for $117 one-way. I'll buy your ticket. I'm not kidding. I'll even put you up Thursday night. Meet up is scheduled for 7:00.

Fly out at 2:05 -- it gets you into DOWNTOWN Toronto. I can pick you up.

Dude. . .

OK, I'll go on line and buy your ticket now.

Lil - I love you.

Alas. I'm stuck in meetings until the afternoon at which time I fly home to see my parents. I'm sorry. But it will happen. Some day.

Into what I call Billy Elliot Airport because I can never remember what it really is?

Billy Bishop Airport - Billy Bishop World War 1 flying ace

72 victories apparently.

Fun fact: My uncle in Florida lives in a fly-in neighborhood (private airport; he has a hangar and a taxiway in his backyard) with an address on Billy Bishop Drive.

And I will split the airfare with you!
