          Delayed 45 minutes because of the rain.

          Drew's in first class.

          I booked my flight at www.cheapoair.com.

            Passenger next to me is complaining about the lack of leg room.

            He'd stop complaining about American Airlines if ever he flew Spirit Airlines.

                    My guess is PHX then to Costa Rica........so you can decide the answer. He will say Biz but knowing Las Ticas will all be waiting for him at the airport it might be pleasure. Then again it probably still is "business"
                    The mind is a terrible thing to waste unless we are talking about the MORONS who post at Covers where the collective Sports Gambling IQ for the ENTIRE site is.................4!!! and even that might be too high

                      Simply a layover on my way to Costa Rica, just like Winky predicted.

                      The heat in Las Vegas was unbearable last week.

                      And I'm not a complainer.

                      Eager to get back to cool sunshine after spending a week in the sauna.

                        Just looked it up: Drew Gooden earned $68 million in his NBA career.

                        Quite an accomplishment for a kid who grew up in the impoverished neighborhoods near Oakland.

                          That's classic! Was just thinking the same thing as I was reading the title thread and VD once again solid as always on the same wavelength.

                                I've never been to Costa Rica, but I know its close to the equator. I looked up the weather forecast there. It's basically the same every day: high of 80, humidity around 75% with a 90% chance of thunderstorms. So, not as hot as LV, but much more humid. Pick your poison.

                                  San Jose, CR’s elevation of almost 4.000 feet above sea level spares it from a much more torrid tropical climate.

                                    CR is known as eternal spring.

                                      Years ago, he popped into a nightclub I was at. It was sort of early (pre-10PM), he cracked me up because he looked like a big, goofy kid, sucking some highball cocktail through a straw.

                                        I'm in the far NW part of the Valley. Work fairly close to the ASU campus though. My commute is a hike.

                                          Eternal spring, perfect.

                                          And the sun rises and sets at practically the same time every day.
