I just got back last night from a two day trip to Arizona. I had to meet a potential client down in the valley and since my whole family lives there it was a good excuse to go spend some time with my brothers.
I flew out on Monday and having bought the ticket just a few hours before the flight the airline (US Airways) offered me a first class upgrade for just $100. That’s like asking me if I would like a 1 hour massage after enjoying a free round of 18 holes of golf on a private beautiful course in the Caribbean. I am 6’6” tall and definitely enjoy the leg room.
As a side note, if you have never flown first class I highly recommend that you don’t do it. I say this because once you’ve done it one time you will never want to fly coach again and unless you can find a smoking deal like the one I found for $100 more, it can get very expensive. I am truly grateful that I am in a situation where I can afford to do things like that.
So I met with the potential SEO client for an hour and spent the rest of the two days hanging out with my bros. I played some golf in the morning and after the meeting we rented a tractor and tore down an old chicken coupe and leveled out some dirt at my parents property.
What is it about driving a tractor and moving dirt that is so appealing? I don’t think there is a man out there that doesn’t think that is fun. That is why I love the tv show Little People Big World. I am so envious of that 30 acre farm they live on where they get to drive tractors and Rangers all the time. Check it out, it’s the best show on TV.
