delta points monthly news letter

Hard to believe this is newsletter volume 4 after May #1 and  June #2 and July #3! I am ready for Fall. I have a mileage run to LAX next week. Plus I cannot wait for the NOW SOLD OUT Chicago Seminars in October. Then, at long last, a mileage run with my fellow BoardingArea Blogger MJ in November. But time for this month’s recap.
