A little bit about Kathy:
“It all began when I was 10 and collected pen pals from around the world!  In 1982, I took my first trip to europe and never stopped traveling.  I spent a year in Amsterdam (1990-1991) where I received a Master of Law in European Community and International Business Law.  I actually hoped to stay abroad and work, but the recession got in the way.  I traveled whenever I could.  From 1989 forward, I went to Mykonos at least once a year – totally 20 times. I went to Mainland china in 1999 to accompany my sister who adopted her daughter at that time.

I also love running – and a number of years ago realized that I could combine that with my love of travel.  I’ve run marathons in four countries (US, Panama, France and Spain), and have run marathons in 49 States (the 50th state – New Hampshire – I’ll complete in October).”

Kathy also had written a song for an entry, which went a little something like this:
(sung to the tune of the Letter, by the Box Tops)
Gimme a first class ticket for an aeroplane,
Ain’t got time to take economy.
Lonely days are gone, I’m a-goin’ home,
…’Cause my point guy just a-won me a frequent flyer’s dream prize

I don’t care how much money I gotta spend,
Got to get back to the Star Alliance Mega Do 3,
Lonely days are gone, I’m a-goin’ home,
‘Cause my point guy just a-won me a frequent flyer’s dream prize.

Well, next to the point guy, I’m gonna be the best seatmate
The kind you couldn’t forget about no mo’.
Listen mister Kelly can’t you see I got to get back
To my Star Alliance Mega Do 3 once a-mo’–anyway…

Gimme a first class ticket for an aeroplane,
Ain’t got time to take economy.
Lonely days are gone, I’m a-goin’ home,
‘Cause my point guy just a-won me a frequent flyer’s dream prize.

If for some reason Kathy can’t make it, the alternate is:
Nick Handy: I’d be a great seatmate because I’m Good Enough, I’m Smart Enough, and Doggone It, People Like Me!

Nick also won a $50 gift certificate to US Airways – his airline of choice.
