Omens and Tusker

Hello from the Raddisson in Dallas.  I’m up here to teach a Wilderness First Aid class this weekend.  Despite this hotel art,

I think it’s going to be a great weekend.  (Minus any hilly running.)  I think this because a man boarding the plane in San Antonio was wearing a Tusker Beer T-shirt.  (From our Wickipedian friends: “The brand was first marketed in 1923, shortly after the founder of Kenya Breweries Ltd, George Hurst, was killed by an elephant during a hunting accident. It was in this year that the elephant logo, that is synonymous with Tusker Lager, was incorporated.)  I drank a Tusker or two when I went to Kenya to teach.  Anyway, I’m taking the t-shirt as a good omen.  Hope your Friday was full of good omens too and lots of free tiny shampoos.

    Fingers crossed for the tiny shampoos…
