*** Travel notes:

I flew to Spokane for a very brief visit with family for an interment at the new Washington State Veterans Cemetery at Medical Lake. Some observations:

My flight from Washington to Minneapolis was aboard an MD 90. Nice flight. I connected there for Spokane, and met up with my brother who was coming from Charleston via Atlanta. Our flight into Spokane was packed with sinewy athletic people. Turns out the Ford Ironman Coeur d'Alene competition (http://ironmancda.com/) was this same weekend. That explained why the second night at the Peppertree Best Western was considerably more expensive than the first night. And, it explained why, when my brother and I realized we had crossed signals and neither one of us had booked the rental car, there were few options available at a reasonable price. So, we rented a seven-passenger black Yukon from Hertz that looked like a Secret Service vehicle.

Beyond the many people coming for the Ironman, there also happened to be the huge Hoopfest event (http://www.spokanehoopfest.net/), the world’s largest 3-on-3 half-court street B-Ball tournament, with upwards of 10,000 participants.

(Note: Congratulations to my cousins Amanda and Allison Kirby. Their teams, HAPPILY EVER AFTER and THREE CHIX ONE DUDE respectively, both advanced in their brackets on Saturday. They both did pretty well on Sunday, too.

At the airport, I got my boarding pass and headed to the security line which was not yet long. A woman told a young lady, “Now, when you get there, you go to the carousel. That’s where the bags will come out.” “I know, Mom.” the girl said, as if he Mom thought she was just a kid who didn’t know ANYTHING. A woman who had checked her bag just ahead of me at the Delta counter tearfully said goodbye to her boyfriend and was now ahead of me in the security line. She stopped and looked back at him and waved. Then we moved several steps closer. She turned and looked again, and blew a kiss. Tears in her eyes, she didn’t notice that the line was moving. She finally notices and moved forward, stopped, gazed longingly, and sent a little wave. Okay, move lady. As the line got longer behind us, and we moved to the boarding pass check, it became harder for her to get a glimpse at her beau. But she tried standing up on her tippy-toes, or looking between the crowd the get just one last look, again, Okay, it was sweet, but, I mean, really.
