Today is technically the last day of my vacation (as I take weekends off anyway.) Really had a nice time – the first week of vacation, we went on a cruise. Pics here.
The second week was just bumming around at home. I find this hard at times, because invariably, a client will e-mail or call. I did my best to “stay” on vacation, but I did slip once or twice 🙂
Last night, I kind of ended the vacation in style – went to an Ashton cigar event at Uptown Cigar in Kingston. Met a bunch of nice people (all cigar buffs), had two nice smokes, bought a bunch of others, won some in a raffle, and had a great few hours talking, smoking, and having a drink (or three). To top it off, Rudy Giuiliani popped in and hung out w/ us for about 15 minutes. I’ll try to get a pic from one of my facebook friends who were there (I tried to take a pic w/ my cellphone, but it didn’t come out.) I did get to meet him, shake his hand, and briefly talk Yankee baseball. Mayor is a nice guy, for sure, and a cigar aficionado as well.
Great vacation – will do it again (minus the cruise) for the holidays (I always take off from Dec 21 until the new year as well…. heck, at some point in my life, I really hope to shut down for the entire fall / holidays: Sept 21 until Jan 2 would be a nice vacation!!)
