If you don't like the weather in Louisiana, just stick around. This morning dawned overcast and muggy, at about 72F. Around 10:00 the wind changed out of the south, to the west, and the the rain started. Now, at near dusk, it's 50, and headed toward the 40s. I'm glad I had a jacket in the truck.
Planning for Louisiana State continues apace. The ladies want to do a banquet, which is an option at this sort of gathering. I'm a rookie at planning this sort of thing, and I was doing it the hard way, trying to figure it out myself. However, a co-worker acquaintance heard me bemoaning my fate and gave me some cogent advise. "Go see Southern Creations." So I did.
I got the literature and talked to a manager, and then talked to some other folks who have used them for catering. The personal reviews are very promising, so I guess that decision is made. I'll hand the literature (menu choices) to Belle, because she's better at that sort of thing than I am.
I'll be back at work before long, the protracted day of the school-house cop. Lots of pre-holiday events going on, and there's soccer. There is always soccer. And basketball.
On the political side, I see that Conyers resigned today. The Dems want him out before Alabama votes next week. I haven't checked the line in Vegas as to whether or not Franken will be pushed out. I figure that it's an even-money bet, because it's hard for the Dems to bitch about Moore, when Franken is still serving, and groping everyone in sight.
UPDATE** In the paragraph above, I originally said that Cornyn had resigned. A commenter caught the error and it has been corrected. Representative John Conyers of Michigan has resigned. I regret the error.
