    All expenses paid? You won't even need to pay me a speaking fee.

    That's up to you. As for me, I will be going all expenses paid and the bill will be picked up by the taxpayer.

    Wow, right on the beach!!! Awesome!! I mean, when you go to a beach resort, how much time do you spend in your room?

    I could be very comfortable in there. The A/V is just to my taste.

    I was able to book a plane for us at an extremely cheap price!!
    It might be a bit slow though since one turbine tends to stop working at times. But we have time, right?

    I flew with them, Fly By Night Airlines, once, but never again. Midway they ran out of gas and we had to get out and push.

    I don't know why the luggage was vibrating, but I blame Evo and Greg.

    That's the way I roll. When my SS check comes in, I immediately pivot to the wild side and book some extravagant accommodations and extras. No sense in letting that largess go to waste, when we could employ hundred of boot-licking lackeys.

    I can't attend, but Duke would love to go. Feeding him would cost more than his plane ticket, so be very careful with invites.

    This year's conference has been canceled along with all future conferences. I have sold the timeshare. I am retired and my wife will be retiring at the end of this month. Instead of going to Aruba, she is going to put together a plan to visit several western states including SD (Mt. Rushmore) and WY (Yellowstone). Sorry for the inconvenience. There's always Bora Bora.

    What are you talking about? I just finished my powerpoint presentation for the "Inactivity" symposium. It took me 3 days of intense existential focus. Now you're canceling?
