An endurance test. There’s no other way to describe it. From 8:18 am to 8:00 pm, with lunch and dinner session. No rest for the virtuous, nor for me.
Today is the first sunny morning and the grass and leaves are a lush green. I dodged trucks going across the street so I could check out Denny’s for breakfast. I had the All-American Slam breakfast. Yum.
Fighter jets are screaming over the hotel silencing CNN Headline News.
It’s 8:02 St. Louis time. I have 16 minutes to get my coffee and my butt down to the convention hall.
