In the waiting area at Toronto Pearson airport. Yesterday was a good day–Tom and I put together two decent games and came in tenth overall in the regional pairs game.
I saw Cole Powell last night as I was getting dinner. His team was in the round of 32 in the mini-Spingold, and up by 25 or so at the half. Then I saw Lauren Friedman, and her team survived into wednesday in the same event.
Tom and Barbara are headed to Niagara Falls today on their loop of America tour. Mike and Linda are playing in the national fast pairs. I’m going to Chicago then SFO then most likely BART to Pleasant Hill. Travel and nationals are great, but getting to sleep in my own bed tonight has considerable value, too.
