for sure it was the best! caused quite a bit of consternation amongst my friends. we had quite a delay when the airline scooped some donkey's luggage from cargo. apparently, he didn't take the flight and stayed in london an extra night...hmpf.

Congratulations! I would have 77K by April 30, except the employer insisted on going One World on the last trip. So I'll just be gold until probably about mid-June.
