@kentbrooks I’d definitely adjust my speed with that many deer around - Glad I didn’t see as many last night :-)
@sundene thanks for the suggestion - audience will be college profs / instructors & teachers
My drive to Altus tonight was much more exciting than anticipated: Narrowly missed a gauntlet/pair of deer crossing US 62 together. Yikes!

@mramidon I should have taken a pic! Now we’re boarding a regional jet where all seats are alike
RT @GDhuyvetter first class is a state of mind.
@unklar I wish they offered those! I just got a comfy pillow :-)
I retract my tweet about American Airlines regional jets not having special seating 4first class… My airline upgrade ignorance is showing!
Of course on a regional American Airlines jet, there really isn’t a “first class seat” - maybe I’ll get extra pretzels! :-)
Checking 2 bags to Lubbock today, it was cheaper to upgrade to first class rather than pay for each bag
@tee62 Yes, no question slide climbers have the official thumbs up with that design! :-)
@gibsonsgolfer I hadn’t seen one like that either - that was at our Sonic drive in, in Oklahoma City by Tinsel Town Theater
@DrDWilliams Undoubtedly that slide is far less challenging for climbers… but perhaps it encourages more non-climbers to switch directions
@BethStill Well super! That makes my evening! I’d love to hear more about what you all are considering & will do with videoconferencing :-)
