Art walk

Three years ago I was inspired by an online article on the Chihuly art glass installation at the Botanical Gardens in Phoenix.

I was finally lucky enough to visit during a business trip last week.

It was even more amazing in person!

Rudy. Rudy.

I got upgraded to first class on my red-eye flight home last night from Phoenix, so I took my cushy window seat and starting prepping for a long sleep.

Then the man next to me started talking.

He was chatty and pleasant, so I figured we could pass the time until the plane was in the air. We talked about my job, and then his in private security. When I asked for what company, he pointed across the aisle to…

Rudy Giuliani

"The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon" Debut Episode

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I decided I could probably spare the guy a little more talk time.

Eventually Giuliani took a bathroom break.  When he returned to our aisle, my new friend introduced us.  Rudy was friendly and personable; we chatted for a few minutes before he took his seat and slept the rest of flight.

Man, I love first class.
