I’ll be traveling both Wednesdays this week and next so no show. I’ll be back that first week in August bright eyed and bushy tailed. Have a good week and weekend everyone be safe. Oh and I almost forgot, for those of you coming in or planning on Golfing at the Chicago Elevator Association outing get your RSVP’s in today! It’s going to be a fun day.
Nice short show today. I believe there are quite a few media people on vacation which I’m good with. I keep saying the day there’s no shock or bad news regarding vertical transportation equipment is the day I look forward because it means we’re all doing our jobs and people are acting like idiots. Next week I should be up with my family in the Northwoods of Wisconsin enjoying a short vacation with them. I’m not sure what day I’m planning on leaving yet so there may or may not be a show. If news content is down and I leave on Wednesday I’ll most likely pass on it. We’ll see. Remember, summer is cruising along at speed of 600 mph and at an altitude of 30,000 feet so enjoy it before it’s gone.

It’s hard to believe that it’s already July and it’s been about four weeks since my last show. Today is the catch up program where I clear out all my news that’s in my cache and empty it out like the dirty garbage it is. Well maybe not dirty garbage but perhaps old news. I’ll also provide a brief update on the Chicago Cruise as well as the Elevator U Conference. Next week we’ll be back on track and I’m looking forward to week after week of programming for you.

Sorry for not posting today. Last week I attended the Elevator U Conference in Lincoln NE and had a great time. Upon my return I brought back inside my body a version of the plague which hit me like a Mac Truck on Friday. I continued to spiral into deeper sickness and when you combine that covering for people on vacation this week I’ve ended up spreading myself a bit thin. I haven’t even been able to go for a bike ride. Sad, I know very sad. My goal is to make a speedy recovery this three day weekend and be back in the saddle next Wednesday. Thanks for thinking about me and remember to wash your hands.
Have a wonderful 4th of July extended weekend. Be safe.
