Wednesday, October 7, 2015: Good morning Beautiful! Good news, the business trip was a success. I landed a new client. Life is good. On the business side it’s good anyway. Don’t get me wrong, life IS good. It really is. Everyday above ground is a great day. Life will be even more amazing when this situation is over Sam.

So, I have to tell you about this interesting part of my trip with our new client. They have all their potential vendors take an intelligence test. It’s an interesting request, right? l actually thought it was brilliant. Their thinking is that they will have a hard time doing business with people who they don’t entirely mesh with. I get it. As we were agreeing to terms of the business deal, they tell me the test has to be completed in 30-minutes. I finished in 23-minutes. It was then another guy walks in and tells me that not many people actually finish the test in the 30-minutes, let alone score in the 95% range. My first thought was that perhaps they were doing business with the wrong people before they met me. Of course I did not say that out loud. On the other hand, the absolution felt good. With everything Adriana Coronel Tenorio (AKA Adriana Howitt Coronel, Ari Coronel, Ari Coronel Tenorio, Ari Howitt, Ari Howitt Coronel) has put us through these last 7-years, it’s easy to think that everything we know to be true is actually wrong. This validates that we are still on the right track. And then some. This explains what is about to take place in the next several days as well.

The flights home from Denver was interesting. I wrote before about how chaotic the boarding process was. Rightfully so as two big airlines have merged. However what was impressive, was the precision in which the schedulers handled connecting flights in and out of Phoenix. Phoenix was my connection but it could have been anywhere. So I got off the one plane, walked 15-minutes to the other gate and walked right onto the other plane. No need to stop and wait. Perhaps I took notice because 10-years ago or so, US Airways acquired America West Airlines. America West Airlines was a smaller airline while US Airways was a global airline. That acquisition/transition was a disaster. I swore off US Airways and did not fly them again for years. It looks like they learned a lot from that experience because this transition with American Airlines was going pretty well.

In other news Sam, we are still planning our trip to Irapuato. The beauty of this is that I can count on one hand the number of people who know we are coming. DAD LOVES YOU!
