Wow. It's been a long time. 2 years again, already? Mr. Forte lets me stay at his house and invited me to his Christmas party in New York and since I am not going to Denver for the rest of the year as I was planning and I still need a few miles to retain my current status tier with Lufthansa for '05/'06, there wasn't much to think about. I am thrilled to go back. In the two years I lived in Manhattan ('95 and '96), New York has become my "second home" and it is always fantastic to go back. I love The City. Dec 17-21.
