No drama today ... just lots of travel. Left hotel at 7:30am to walk in dark to train station, passed by all commuters on bicycles. Arrived airport without hassle, checked in without hassle, went to club to wait until boarding was called. Opted not to spend my last euros on overpriced magazines so now have lots of change. Security is at boarding gate, but I did not have to wait in line at all. Boarding began 10 minutes or less after I went through security. No issues on flight to Chicago. Long lines in Chicago, but I had two and a half hours. Still had time to check email in club. Might have slept for 10 minutes on flight to SFO.
Paul met me on arrival (yeah!) and we went to dinner. Then home and hot tub -- lovely full moonlight. Gruden was so tired from Matt-walkies he could barely make it down the stairs to greet me with whimpering.
