Friends taking care of Friends

I am on vacation this week.  Opending time at 6,000 ft with good 4G connections.

A last minute trip from some NC data center friends making a trip Seattle left me at a loss for my inability to host the visitors.  Within minutes of texting my NC friend I am not in town I reached out to two other friends and see if they could join our visitors to Seattle.  For the next 10 minutes dozens of texts fly to coordinate schedules and locations.  My NC friends land in SEA the next day and within an hour everyone is together drinking beers enjoying a seafood dinner.

One of the simple pleasures in life is to host friends when they visit.  What even feels better is friends who will take your place to host out of town of visitors.
