Milaka is driving down to pick up her sister. As soon as her last class is over for the holiday break, they are heading for Arizona. Laka wasn’t able to come down for her sister’s graduation to see her pop, so this is a pilgrimage for her.
Speaking of daughters, my eldest just got her first credit card. Her credit score was awfully good for a recovering alcoholic/homeless woman. She was very excited. So were we. Speaking of credit cards, the Geezer was invited to get an AmEx card. Lots of travel points on it, and we don’t have a card with points. Instead of getting the American Express card, he talked to someone at another card’s corporate who matched AmEx.
We’re another pair of drunks with fancy cards. We never thought of points before this, but Saturday we are making arrangements to go through the Panama Canal. We can use those new points to fly to Miami in some degree of comfort. The ship will stop in San Diego on the way up to Alaska. That’s just what we want.
Little things really matter when you work as hard as G does.
