Alexander Calzadilla is a Cuban male originally from Philadelphia, who has happily called Miami his home since moving here at the age of 15. He attended Southwest Sr. High School and Florida International University, ultimately receiving his Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration. While in college, he began working as a paralegal for the Law Offices of Jeffrey E. Reichenbacher, a position he kept for seven years after graduation. He subsequently worked at Morgan, Lewis & Bockius Associates before landing at Costa Nursery. After distinguishing himself with many accomplishments, he was promoted to the position of Director of Specialty Products, which included the orchid, bonsai and lucky bamboo departments.

The city of Seatle and LAX ...

Seattle and LAX...

So i have gone from wanting to kill my partner to being ok with the fact that I didn't make my flight because of her sandwich which I was carrying in my bag in Seattle and was stopped by Security and had my bags searched.. I told her to go ahead and tell the people at the gate I was on route and instead she grabbed her boarding pass and said goodbye as I was told the plane was full.. 

Can you believe it.. Her sandwich in my bag and she gets on the plane and I dont.. meanwhile she is the only one that knows anything about this trip.. reservation number, schedule. I am clueless and stuck in Seattle waving goodbye as the plane departs.. at Alaska Airlines.. I have to admit the people there were friendly and took care of me pretty well giving me an upgrade to First Class and putting me on the very next flight at 11:20 of course to late to make my 2:10 connecting flight in LAX to Atlanta to then connect to Fort Lauderdale.. Well as I pondered how o best kill my partner while making her feel lots of pain I decided to do what had to be done.. Forget about what happened and make the best of a bad situation.. other words make it a good situation..

Now back on Delta from Alaska airlines (although they were just as nice.. ) I told them what had happened with a little tired look on my face and again Delta personal who are marvelous and I believe the best in the Industry gave me a direct flight into Miami, First Class upgrade, and free Delta Sky Lounge since my flight would not be until 10:30 western time at night getting into Miami at 6:30 AM Sunday morning... 

In the end I do believe I ended up with much better conditions and arrangements so I am ok with the situation and hopefully next time I see Jessica I wont feel the urge to Kill her.. Just kidding she is a wonderful person overall and doesn't deserve to be killed..... besides then I would be alone in day to day operation at Avant-Garde as my other Partner Edward Saunders rarely peeks his head in the office.. 

Well i hae some pictures to share with all of you from my last day in Seattle and then of course the oes from LAX's Delta Skyway's Lounge.... 

Seattle on my last day there....
Beautiful City Center.. Space Needle.. AHHHHH

The City, which is home to Microsoft, Amazon, Starbucks, Nordstrom, among many other companies is great, lively, and has an amazing downtown area that is definitely one of the nicest I have seen in a long time... 

I really enjoyed my stay in Seattle and my Partner's friends are an amazing group of people that are really ideal friends and people who truly care and are very real at heart.. I will miss Seattle but somehow I think my path will bring me back sooner then later perhaps for a longer period of time.. Dont ask me how i know that i just do... 

Los Angeles:  

The mountains from inside the pane on the way to LAX and of course the ultra modern and comfortable Delta Sky miles Lounge at LAX...

Well I will give all of you an update shortly once I know I am home or at least that my final destination is close at hand...
