Bright sunshiney morning greeted me at 0900 when the phone rang to see if I was staying over another night. Fer chrissakes! Check out is 1100. Call me at 1059 to ask this question. I grit my teeth, politely say no and ask them not to call me again, and tell the maids not to knock on my door. I want peace and quiet with my green and yellow room with the rusty fridge!
To add to the color palette I would like to point out that the exterior of the m'otel ...
Today was a relatively uneventful day; we are heading back toward New Orleans and picking up a couple of NPS sites en route. Our first stop was Big Thicket National Preserve. This is the general area where, a few years ago, a Cornell University team declared that they had discovered a living Ivory Billed Woodpecker. (If you don't know that story--it's a great one.

Before leaving the sheriff told everyone that he would see them on Sunday at church (which everyone says to everyone in the south). Tomorrow we have a short ...
... no hot water! Surprise of the day, we only had to pay $7/night...for the life of us, we can't figure out how the office came up with that figure. Sherry, the good person that she is, tried explaining the math, but they insisted. $14. Ok. Thanks. We like Louisiana math but I don't think I should try using it at work! ;-) Early night tonight. Long road trip tomorrow, will be gone by daybreak. Next stop, Roswell, New Mexico! Will be on the lookout for aliens!!! Thanks for ...
