05 Slow Start, Lost Bike

Our pal Joel got us to the Ramada Inn, Burbank and deserted us there. It was pretty dismal, adjacent to Freeway 5 in an industrial neighborhood. Don’t even think about going out after dark! The next AM we took the included tram to Bob Hope Airport. We were ready but American Airlines delayed, 2 hours. Suring that time we learned that one bike was in Dallas, UPS had lost the other. YIKES!

An interesting flight, no bumps. We were seated next to Mathew and son Lavonne. They own 4 ReMax Offices and were headed to an REO (Real Estate Owned, Bank Owned) meeting in Dallas.  Kismet, they were staying at our Hotel Lawrence. Didn’t know but had we, we could have shared a taxi, darn.

The hotel is small and boutique, the kind we like. They have an a great restaurant, “The Founder’s Grill”, we loved our waiter, Thomas. He couldn’t help us get in on the free cocktrails and food the REALTORS were enjoying but he was great fun. Sebron, the manager of Hotel Lawrence was way helpful! We kept the bikes in a conference room.   

The lost bike sohowed up on Monday, 3 days late but it did show up!!!
