Blogging on the road. One of those rare alignment of the planets types of things where my wife and I both have need for business travel and the kids are out of school.

When I was growing up, my father worked for Montgomery Wards. Started out in the drapery department, ended up as a district manager. For over a century, Wards was #2 in its market. Now it is gone. K-mart may follow. My father landed on his feet.
Nothing like going back home to trigger some good reminiscing.
