The Bright Side

Cross fingers and nothing definite, but we juuuuuust might have enough flier points for a single free plane fare to Sydney.  If the stars align properly and there’s a conference there that Tom can attend, that’s two free fares.  Be still my heart.

We also just booked a sweet bed and breakfast in the Haight neighborhood of San Francisco for our trip and we’re camping in Sonoma.  Going on Mark Twain’s advice on summer in San Francisco, I’m keeping my favorite fleece jacket handy.  In a serendipitous twist, our team leader for the Avon Walk works for his family’s Sonoma-based winery and has generously offered to show us around.  That, right there, is worth the plane fare fiasco.
