Saturday Morning Coffee 8/15/09

Good morning and happy Saturday to everyone. I hope you have had a good week this week and are having a good weekend so far. It has been a good week here at the Lee's for the most part. Linds had a birthday yesterday so we went to the movies last night to see the Time Traveler's Wife. It was pretty good for a chic flick if you have a decent imagination. I say decent because I generally do not like movies that are too "out there" with things going on in the movie. For example I will not watch Star Wars but really enjoyed the movie K-PAX. Both are about things out of this world but K-PAX seemed more believable in my twisted brain. Switching gears, I got the tickets I purchased on EBay for the first Auburn game this year yesterday! I am more excited than I thought I would be. I haven't been to a game in Auburn in three years now. If you would have told me that ten years ago I would have told you that you were crazy. I still love them and watching them just as much but the hassle of going up there and fighting the crowd to sit in the blazing heat has really lost its excitement for me the older I get. Give me my recliner, the fridge, the bathroom, and Auburn on the TV and I am as happy as they come. The main reason I even looked for tickets to this is because I met a good friend at our training to become travel agents last November in Ft. Lauderdale who's son is the place kicker for LA Tech. We actually sat next to each other in a class of about 30 and along with about 5-6 other men in the class bonded and became friends for the week, still keeping in contact fairly regularly. His family are really excited because this will be his son's first college game, he is right out of high school. I think they are bringing about 20 people to the game from Texas and Florida. I can't even imagine how it would feel as the kid, or his family to get to experience college football for the first time as a player in Jordan-Hare...umm it just give me chills. Any way his name is Matt Nelson, if you are there or watching, you can tell who ever you are with when they say his name on ESPN that you kind of sort of know his dad through your travel agent :). Am I the only one who does stuff like that...becoming a fan of a team or player because I kind of sort of know someone that knows someone???
Oh yea this is a travel blog. This will be short and sweet. I have a book your own feature on my web site now. It has a link on the left side called "book your own trip". It is operated by Travel Impressions(American Express Travel)with whom I book 95% of all my land packages through anyway. Now, if you are just kind of wondering what it would cost to go somewhere or do something and are not ready to call me you can use this feature to get some ideas of what it may cost you. If you are really comfortable booking your self you can do it here as well but I still recommend giving me a call to let me look it over because I do it every day and may spot something in the booking that could be a potential problem and fix it for you. The good news for me is I get credit either way you choose to go, but I much prefer personal interaction with my customers. Here is the link directly to the page if you would like to play around with it and see what you come up with.

Thank you,


  1. Jeremy...Thanks for the shout out about Matt! That was awesome. It is going to be very nerve racking for sure. I look forward to catching up at the game and meeting Lindsey. Continued success! Friends for life!


  2. Sorry John, but you won't be meeting me this time. But you can meet Jeremy's college roommates! I am a big Alabama fan and our game is at 7 that night against VA Tech and I don't want to miss it. But I do wish your son the best of luck! It's quite awesome he is getting to play and that all his family is going to be there to see him.
