Business-Class Buckley

Hello! Today I’m off to the annual convention of the Association of Quill Straighteners. Just a moment for a goodbye kiss from my lovely wife, Betsy — mwah! — and it’s away to the airport!

As a frequent business traveler, I demand on-time performance and a generous rewards program. That’s why I rely on Air Hand™.

Air Hand’s WheePerks™ Double Bonus Miles program rewards me with extra miles whenever I yell “whee!” while flying. I’m not sure why that’s so important to them, but apparently it is. Now, if you’ll excuse me, they’re calling my flight…

  1. Thank you CO for being a wonderful port in the storm of this wild, wonderful, but occasionally sad and crazy world. I haven’t told my youngest about today; he’s 10, and whether he learns right now about it or later, it won’t make a difference.

    For now, we will make candles for his teachers, drink hot chocolate, listen to Christmas music, and check out CO before we go to bed. I will hug both of my kids a little tighter and longer tonight and hopefully the little one will fall asleep while we read in bed tonight. I don’t think it’ll be hard to get dad to let him stay just for tonight and not carry him to his own bed.

    Blessings to all of you fellow CO’ers and your loved ones! Love from Mamabear and her family.

  2. Mary (the first) says:

    Everything Mamabear said although I don’t have children. Even so, I feel much sorrow and pain at today’s events. Thanks to C.O. for some relief and a smile or “squee” to relieve some pain.

  3. I second Mamabear and Mary (the first)–no kids, just anipals, but I still want to hug all the little kids in my life.

  4. hugs to mamabear and progeny.

  5. I have no kids either and live in Canada not the U.S but they keep talking about it on TV and I can’t stop crying every time they do.

  6. Hug your kids, your families, your friends, your critters. And remember we’re all in this together.

  7. and this is part of why we love YOU Gigi 🙂

  8. Who would’ve thought that a lil ball of toothpicks could be so adorablez?

  9. More hugs and some hot cocoa.

  10. I work with kids, and I’m wondering what I will say if they mention it.

  12. Happy Holidays to mamabear, papabear, babybear & all C.O.-ers !
