In this photo, what is that hanging around his neck called (no--not George, or Ralph, or Sid)
and where can I purchase one? Thanks

It's called a Neck Safe, I beleive. The brand name is Pacsafe. I purchased one when someone on AU put up the info a couple of years ago & I purchased one. It is very convenient & well worth the money. I use it for tickets, diner reservation cards, pens, note pad etc.
RF


I got one at AAA. I've also seen them in stores that sell luggage.

That's too funny. LOL. I guess it was lunch or dinner time in some time zone well east of the LSL. :giggle:

It was dinner on the LSL on 10-2, and I believe you can see the back of Trogdor's head in the back right side of the photo. I was at the table sitting next to Shanghai across from Alan and Grace.

PS I think that Grace was not eating salad because there was no blue cheese dressing (Chris D take note)

Yup, that's Trogdor in the dark blue shirt with his back to the camera.
Alan,

The internet was out when I hit the lounge on the way to Seattle, but working on the return. AC was fine both times.

Every bit as good as GG-1's snapshots, and without lugging all that hardware around. Maybe Misty should be running the photo forum!

Below is a photo taken on the Talgo going from Seattle to Portland.
Some of us enjoyed the scenery and some chatted, but as you can
see from the photo, our Stephen was engaged in another activity!!!

Nice pictures, Misty. I think the "Amtrak Event" might have been that the Amtrak 40th Anniversary train was in Milwaukee the 15th and 16th.
