Sitting in the Airport

Waiting for my plane. And it's on time, so far.

Being at the airport means I have officially started my tour. Very exciting.

Will be in Seattle in, oh, eight hours or so. I'll check in then.

It's gray and 50 degrees in Seattle, which is a pretty safe bet to forecast for any spring day. It's not actually raining though. :)

Safe travels! I take it someone got your 'puter to you?

Oh, sorry.

On another subject, even though I suspect you may have other plans - if you want a great breakfast, go to Maltby Cafe, which is up near Woodenville, NW of Seattle itself.

I love the Maltby Cafe (though I don't love the long line to get in). The food is fantastic and since I live in Mill Creek, it isn't all that far from my house. Mmmm. May have to go there this weekend.

The line can be quite long on the weekend, but it is not as bad during midweek. Also, they have a counter with 9 stools, so if you are alone - which I was when I was on a job assignment in Seattle in 1997-98, the wait is normally not too bad even on the weekend, assuming that you are willing to sit at the counter.

BTW, if you are not already aware of it, watch out for the speed trap that the Highway Patrol likes to set up on the road that runs over from Mill Creek to Maltby. They love to set up at the bottom of a hill in a zone posted for 30 mph so you are toast unless you constantly ride your brakes going down the hill. (I lived in Mill Creek during my 14 month assignment in Seattle, and saw the Smokeys lying in wait on that road almost every weekend.)

With best wishes,
