Off topic for the aviation minded.

Sometimes, you just want people to show they care some. Let me tell a story. The wife and I took a couple of days off about 10 days ago and spent two nights in Brown County. Unplugged. The visit was nice and we had a good time and we came home relaxed and decompressed. However, all did not go well with the accomodations.

I chose a place that was a to be a little romantic. The Abbey Inn in Brown County. Wow! The property is beautiful. The grounds around the Inn are stunning and peaceful. We had a peaceful cup of tea watching the sunset the first night we were there. However, all in all – it was just ok.

I had a few minor problems. Without boring people with the mundane details, I thought some kind of concession with an invite back for the next time would have been nice. Here’s the thing. Complaining ain’t easy there. Office is open from 10am to 6pm. No phones in the rooms (that is by design, and was appealing when I picked the place). There’s a phone in the hallway if you need to call staff when the office isn’t open.  But, here’s the thing – when we go site seeing and go to do things to relax, we almost always are gone from our accomodations during said office hours.

I sent an email to the staff last weekend. I haven’t been important enough to warrant a reply. So – now there is this post.

"Don't go around saying the world owes you a living. The world owes you nothing. It was here first." Mark Twain

Quote 2

From Marine Corps Chaplain Father Dennis O'Brien: "It is the soldier, not the poet who has given us freedom of speech. It is the soldier, not the reporter who has given us freedom of the press. It is the soldier, not the campus organizer who has given us the freedom to demonstrate. And it is the soldier who salutes the flag, who serves beneath the flag, and whose coffin is draped by the flag, who gives the protester the right to burn the flag." found on:
