Normal. Well, first of all, holiday travel was enormous. The amount of people flying in the United States huge. Did I see that even summer bookings that Some of the air travel and the bookings that the airlines air seeing are in excess of the summer of 2019 pre pandemic. Wow. That's the case. That certainly is indicative. Welcome to Schmidt. Here we are. It's a Tuesday. Course It feels like a Monday. But of course yesterday Memorial Day and I hope you took the time to think about Memorial Day and what Memorial Day's all about. And not just shoving your face with With grilled food steaks and burgers and Chicken and hot dogs, etcetera. Hopefully you took time to realize that Memorial Day is to memorialize those that fought for our country. Died for our country. Hope you took just a moment to figure that out and just didn't try to run out and get a good deal on a washer and dryer with some Memorial Day sale, which, as you know, that drives me nuts, a memorial Day sale. I always thought that that was kind of sick, twisted and more, but anyway, quickly. Loaded show here on Tuesday.
