  2. I was talking today to a friend who was part of the jet set in the 60’s, and well into the 80’s. He remembers well using both travelers cheques and the classic green card. Remembers many occasions where a place would take the cheque, but not the card......aka no imprinter available. Also the Amex brand, was almost as recognizable as Pan Am and Coca-Cola. Even in the middle of nowhere, in some remote third world hole, an Amex travelers cheque was as good as gold. Now anyone with a moderate pulse can get in with Amex.
  3. Even if one finds a place that still technically accepts them, good luck expecting the person on the other side of the counter to know what they are, and how to handle them. I think there might be a few odd ball Amex travel offices left, but not many. Like others have said. ATM's, proliferation of credit cards, and the internet in general have changed the business dynamic. I remember in the 90's when OTA's like Priceline, etc. came into being. Many travel agencies went hungry and went under.

  6. Not a stay. But a day trip to Raleigh and back via Amtrak tomorrow. $68 RT for Mrs. Vig and I. Normally that would run $108, but there was a sale not long ago. Paid with Amtrak MC.
  7. The pain has gone away. However, all jokes aside, mentally, I feel like I'm in a fog at times now.
  8. 3 20lb bags of cat litter. Thanks to Walmart+ Some sap had to lug those bags up to the doorstep of my 2nd floor domicile.
