A Night in Orlando

 A Night in Orlando

Todd Swank's Diary Entry for June 12, 2022

For the first time since the pandemic, I had an official work trip to visit one of my new clients at Oracle.  I flew to Orlando, Florida for an evening of trying to make new relationships.

My client was having a Happy Hour at the Disney Swan Hotel.  I went there and tried to introduce myself to a bunch of people I'd never met before.  It's always a little awkward at first, but I was pretty pleased with the number and quality of conversations I was able to have with people.  Well worth the trip.

Miss Sheri also was having fun in my absence.  Her friend Robin was in town from Hawaii and they were all set to go out on an adventure of their own.

They drove to Northern Minnesota to do some sightseeing as well as visit some of Robin's relatives.

They also stopped to visit Split Rock Lighthouse while they were up there.  I can't believe in all my years in Minnesota I haven't had the chance to see this yet.  Maybe next time I'll get to join them.

On Thursday night, our friends Doc & Portia Vogt invited us to have dinner with them at their new house out in the country.  We had a marvelous time with great food, wonderful conversation, and Doc even let me fly one of his drones around a bunch of fields.  I gotta get me one of those.

Luke and Avery have been doing quite a bit of golfing this summer so they both decided to go out and splurge on some new clubs.  Now they really crush me, but it doesn't disappoint me as much because now I can just blame it on my old clubs.

We took turns taking out the boat on Saturday.  Blue was quite excited they let him join them for their turn.

I saw this egret this week.   That's about it.
