The hotel manager did not have another suite, nor did he have two rooms with a connecting door. So. We are now in two smaller rooms, side-by-side, across the hall. I had the manager move the bed in one of the rooms into the other room, as my two children are much too young to be in a room alone, and we set up shop in the other room. The manager told me that my suite would be dry within a day or two, and the carpet replaced, and we could move back shortly. I told him, "We're not moving again." He explained that although he's letting me have both these rooms for the price of one, he would be unable to continue this arrangment past a week, perhaps 10-days. I continued to look at him without answering until he suggested that he would contact his manager and see about an extension. Awfully wide of him, don't you think?
My wife bought our son a large-scale aircraft carrrier, replete with a squadron of aircraft. A couple of things bothered me about this particular toy. First of all, it was marked "68" which would be CVN-68, the USS Nimitz. Having been aboard the Nimitz, at least they put a resonable facsimile of the conning tower on this ship. Now, I understand that this is only a toy, and I also understand its made in China, however, the complement of aircraft onboard included a Swedish Viggin, a Soviet Fulcrum, a French Mirage 2000, an experimental US steath aricraft (F-19 nomenclature), a C-5 Galaxy (to date, nothing that large has ever landed, nor managed to to successfully flung from a carrier), a British Tornado, and a US FB-111. Oh, and a Chinook. At least I can tell him why some aircraft have variable-geomety wings, and why the Chinook has folding blades. I'll give the Chinese that for at least suppling the naval varient! Enough of that.
Still working on that spreadsheet. New requirements. ...and the hits just keep on playing!
