On the road again: Austin, day 5

I am home.

In fact, I will be home for 3.5 weeks, which is quite some treat.

Today's travel went about as well as one can reasonably expect.  Check-out from the hotel was an unreasonably long and hassle-filled process, but this trip the hotel's staff seemed to have lost a great deal of knowledge, so I was prepared for this development.  The trip to the airport was uneventful, and check-in and security were painless processes.  That truly is about as good as it gets.

I love lunching in the Austin airport, because standing side-by-side are two wonderful places:  a Salt Lick bbq, and an Amy's.  When your lunch includes brisket and a small cup of delicious ice cream, your day is bound to be good.

I got an upgrade on the second flight, and I was able to work for all of it.  As I said, as good as it can get.

I am so very pleased to be home.

What's that you say?  You want some more Petula Clark?

Happy to oblige.

I have a vinyl album of hers tucked away somewhere. Thanks for the good memories.
