The One Where I Spent 15 Hours in Penn Station

So here’s my latest travel story.  I do want to say on record that I am 100% aware that delayed travel is one of the lesser of life’s worries in the scheme of things.  But everyone has a breaking point and when you constantly encounter “setbacks” getting places and you’ve been alone in a train […]

a long time coming

My cousin Matt graduates from the Police Academy in New York today.  He’s 22 years old; this has been 21 years in the making.  I am so proud of him, so happy for him.  This has been such a long time coming.  I cannot believe the day has finally arrived. Congratulations, Matt.  I love you […]
