I’ll probably have to write a parody to “Secret Agent Man” entitled “Travel Agent Woman”.  Tomorrow I’ll get on the computer and with my mother on the phone I’ll book a round trip ticket for her to join  me with my daughter and her granddaughter Rachel visiting over the winter holiday.  And with Leila also staying a couple of days it’ll be the 4 girls again.

With the loss of travel agents and the advent of internet ticket booking by anyone with computer access, the convenience of letting another person do it for us is mostly lost.

I don’t know about you, but since I’m not the analytical type, doing the technical research on the best ticket itinerary and price is not my favorite thing to do.  In fact, I really don’t like doing it, but I have no choice today.  Certainly, I appreciate that my team cruise is already figured out, so I just have to deal with Jan the agent that arranges those cruises.  And if I really want, she can do Leila and my plane tickets, as, well.

When I used to travel with my now ex-husband we used to deal, gladly, with Kay and she became a friend.  Oh, the good old days!  But she couldn’t stay in business and it’s a good thing she had a regular job at Robinson’s department store, now Macy’s.

Well, I’m putting off the agony of doing the flight research, so I’ll get a good night’s sleep and tackle it tomorrow afternoon, when there should be the best bargains.  Good thing I listen to Michael Dixon’s “Around the World in Sixty Minutes” travel show on Sundays – when not preempted by the AZ Cardinals football game or a Suns game, or a Diamondbacks game.  Guys, give me a break!  You have your own travel agents.  Let me have mine!
