Heading out again

Debra and I leave tomorrow for Baton Rouge, LA, where we (she, mostly) will be attending the annual convention of the African Violet Society of America.  Debra is the president of the local chapter (First Austin African Violet Society).  Although African Violets aren't on my top list of interesting things, I figure it's only fair for me to come along.  I've dragged her to enough computer-related functions over the past 12 years.  Truthfully, it'll be good to get away together.  We're going a few days early so that we can visit some of her family and also take a day trip to New Orleans.  I'm sure I can find something interesting to see in Baton Rouge while she's doing convention stuff.  If nothing else, I'll take the opportunity to relax with a book or three.

I'm taking along a laptop that I borrowed from the office, and the hotel reportedly has high speed Internet access.  But don't be terribly surprised if I disappear for the next 10 days.
