Good evening! It has been a couple of weeks since an update since I was very busy on the road the first two weeks of the month. But, things have gotten back to normal and it is good to be back home again! It is always good to have travels go somewhat smoothly. It was funny, I had to be in 9 different states in 15 days and the schedule was very tight. Fortunately, everything went well. It was only the final trip when I was returning home that I got hit with a several hour delay. Oh well, better than I suppose!
Of course, this weekend, a lot of people were searching for deals. Hopefully, you were able to find what you were looking for at the prices you wanted!
