Good evening from Houston.

And the good news is I head home for Louisiana tomorrow!

Then my lady and I will head to Atlanta on Friday from LFT via a quick Delta Connection flight for the Mark Knopfler concert this Saturday evening and shall also have the opportunity to visit with her family and our friends.
