I am certain that is it. Probably stole the ruby from the eye of the idol, and kidnapped the nubile daughter of the high priest. Now I am being punished for it. Traveling a lot, you can get "bumped" on an oversold flight. Sometimes, you volunteer for a bump- travel plans are such that I can get there 4 hours later, etc. Sitting in my computer bag are a couple of vouchers for free round trip tickets anywhere in the US. My plans had been- January, when the weather is a touch yucky, snag a week in Key West, do the Jimmy Buffet thing, toes in da water, pina colada in hand, sun on my back. Notice I said "plans had been"? Got email today. Have some mines I have to go visit in January. One I fly into Missoula MT and drive over into Idaho. The other I fly into Juneau AK, and take the boat. Both in Jan. DAMN! I ought to quit whining. It could be the North Slope of AK or Great Slave Lake uranium mines in Canada in early Feb.
