The dog days of summer are upon us. I have had a great summer flying both Delta and other airlines (sorry for cheating on you, my dearest Delta). I have my annual golf trip up north with my buddies up soon and will not step foot on a Delta jet for all of August but will make up for that in spades in September as I am flying almost every day that month!
