Just a short message wishing everyone a very Happy New year!
I work tonight at the hotel. Tomorrow I have off which I will do some major vegging out. I need to do some serious relaxing.
This morning I spent about three hours on the phone with Apple Support trying to correct my Time Machine Error Code 92 problem. Sometimes folks, I am tempted to just toss all my digital age stuff out the window and retreat to my bed and read a book. Much less complicated and frustrating. However, I am hooked on all the convenience of the Digital Age so I will plow through.
Last night at the hotel I checked in a guy who had spent the last nine months walking across the country. His starting point was his home in Irvine California. This is his website.Nice guy. Very relaxed. Looked like a guy who had just walked across the country. He was amazing, he had less "luggage" (back pack) for a nine month trip than I take for a week's stay in Philadelphia. And yes, I did wash his clothes after he stripped down to his walking shorts. I asked him "why?" he walked across the country. Usually people who bike or ride across the country are raising funds of awareness of an issue. His answer was "I believe it is the end of times and I wanted to see the country before that happened." Oh, okay. Nice guy though. No proselytizing or any of that boring nonsense some self righteous Christians lay on you. He said he knew that others have claimed end of times but "this is different." We'll see. He said he started his trip with a meal at an Italian restaurant and wanted to end his trek with a meal at an Italian restaurant. I told him we had an excellent Italian restaurant in Lewes, Touch of Italy. He went there and had a huge chicken parmesan dinner. He said he's going to visit a friend in Virginia and then take a train back to his home in California. See the interesting people I meet at the hotel? Memorable. And we'll see about that "end of times" thing.
I'm working again at the hotel tonight. Almost a full house. Dropping the anchor in Lewes at the Overfalls Ship, fun times.
Happy New Year to everyone!
