This week's episode is a bit different. I recently returned from a 3 week trip from our home in Ajijic Mexico to Austin where I was a keynote speaker at a financial conference. I spoke to an audience that might have been as many as 700 people. There were 900 people registered for the conference.
My wife and I then flew to Maryland so we could visit our son and daughter-in-law who we had not seen in 2 and a half years due to the pandemic. They had purchased their first home in Annapolis Maryland last year.
We flew Southwest Airlines to BWI on a direct flight both ways right after the mask mandates for airports had been lifted. Both flights were full. If I do not need to get on an airplane ever again, I would be fine with that.
We then returned to Austin to complete our mission. I had a periodontist visit to have my teeth cleaned. I have been going to the same periodontist for 25 years and I still come back a couple times of a year for a checkup and cleaning. I had a fascinating discussion with the hygienist that I want to share.
We then drove to east Texas so my wife could visit with her mother. Her father passed away a couple of months ago and as you can imagine her mother is still grieving.
We then headed back to the Texas/Mexico border on our drive home.
I had so many interesting conversations along the way that I wanted to share my observations in this podcast episode.
