Just think what we have to look forward to tomorrow – the start of MQDs, the fun of trying to game the “system” one more year and sit up front as much as we can. I am looking forward to my first Delta flight on January 8th-10th so if you see me in a skyclub say “hi” please. Then later in the month off to Hawaii; Skiing in Utah in February and maybe Florida in March. I am excited! You? – Rene
