I left OC on Tuesday. This is me very happy to be heading to the Baltimore show! It was a very beautiful day and I always enjoy flying over the sunny Southern California coastline. This first picture is of the popular Fashion Island in Newport Beach This is a neat picture showing Newport Harbor. The gorgeous SoCal coast: Newport Beach, Corona del Mar, Laguna Beach, Dana Point, San Clemente, etc. I changed planes in warm sunny Phoenix Shortly after I settled in my window seat on the plane, a guy sat down in the aisle seat next to mine. The flight attendants (who were based in Baltimore) began fawning over this guy, then I heard a couple male passengers calling him coach, asking for his autograph, etc. Obviously he was someone famous, but I had no idea who he was. So once we were underway, I turned to him and said, "You must be someone pretty special, but I apologize, I have no idea who you are." He chuckled and said he was John Harbaugh, the head coach of the Baltimore Ravens. I said "aw, at least I know who the Ravens are!" Coach Harbaugh was extremely nice, kind, and patient, especially with all the fans that kept coming by his seat, shaking his hand, asking for his autograph, etc. During the flight, he mentioned that his brother, Jim, is also a coach in Michigan and at one time was the head coach of the 49ers. He then told me the story about a few years ago when his team played his brother Jim's team in the Super Bowl (the Ravens won). I actually remembered watching that game and hearing the story of brother coach vs. brother coach. I asked him how his parents handled it, and he said it was really tough on them, but he said they handled it really well. He said his mom said it best, that at the end of the day, it was still about family and feelings for one another. 5 hours later, we landed in Baltimore At the baggage claim area, several people recognized Coach Harbaugh and asked for photo selfies, and he graciously complied with every request. I finally thought it would be nice to have a photo with this handsome famous coach. When I asked him, he laughed and said "Of course especially since we were seat mates." I arrived at my hotel pretty late. This time I stayed at the Days Inn, but I'm not sure I will stay there again. Although it was a lot less expensive than the other host hotels, they ran out of kind and queen bed rooms, so I was stuck with a full sized bed. They also "accidentally" ran my card for double the amount they were supposed and couldn't correct it until I checked out. I may give them one more try since they are right across the street from the convention center, but we'll see. Anyway, once I was checked in, it was a long day so I went right to sleep. The next day, I headed over to the convention center to view the auctions, including the Pogue coins. Wow, I felt honored just to be holding some of those amazing pieces of copper!
