It’s nice to get some time off.
It’s also nice to get back to work when you’re doing something that you like to do for a living.
That was the case for me when my 2 alarm clocks started waking me up at 1:25 this morning after a nice break spent in Boston and in Maine.
This vacation was the first we’ve taken to a place with temperatures that would best be described as cool, was a very enjoyable one and it left me with several observations.
First, the challenge of getting through airport shuttle, checked-baggage, and security areas makes any service that you get during an airline flight seem fantastic.
Second, the size of a “big city” hotel room is directly proportional to the price you pay.
In other words, the higher the price, the smaller the room.
Our room in Boston was smaller than the average Motel 6.
Third, the number of public restrooms at public places is never sufficient to meet the demand.
So much so that it appears a Starbucks in Portland Maine has made quite a business of requiring a purchase to use the potty.
Fourth, the John F. Kennedy Presidential library in Boston is a “must visit” if you were alive during the term of the 35th president.
Last but not least, it’s gratifying when you get text messages and emails while you’re away from listeners wondering why you’re not on the radio, even if some are based on the thought that you must be sick.
That’s the way I see it.
