Long Live Rock and Roll

My niece Samantha once said something when she was 12 years old that is a Universal truth. It could have been said by Mother Teressa, the Dalai Lama, or Confucius.

We had some extra SkyMiles and invited her to visit San Francisco with us. She was cranked and hounded her parents until they allowed her to go.

On the morning of departure, she "dolled up." She worked her cutest clothes, shoes, and she musth have spent hours doing her hair.

When we rolled into BHAM airport, she looked like a rock star. By the time we arrived several hours later in San Francisco, she looked as if she'd ridden a motorcycle out there instead of flying. As she leaned on her luggage while we waited for ours to inch around the turnstile, she said, "You know, flying sucks the beauty right out of you." Unfortunately, I'd just taken a sip of coconut water and I was laughing so hard I snorted most of it out my nose.

Those words came back to me today. I arose at an ungodly hour this morning to make it to the airport to fly to Cleveland, Ohio for a conference. Jilda was supposed to come with me, but something came up and she couldn't come.

The other coach at the college came with me and the only free time we had was today after we arrived in Cleveland. The Rock Hall of Fame is within walking distance. We didn't have a lot of time but saw enough to realize that we'd like to come back when we have more time.

Bad lighting, great background.
