We arrived safely in Tuscaloosa, AL yesterday and the ladies have commenced the frivolities.  We went to a large family supper last night, got back to the room about 9-ish, fell into bed and slept the sleep of the righteous.  Got up this morning and after a third cup of coffee, we're off to the cemetery to put flowers on graves, thence to visit family the rest of the day.

This weekend is the weekend that the University of Alabama opens the dorms.  The place is full of parents making sure that children are successfully lauched.  It's an exciting time for them.  Traffic is, of course, tight.  Some of you who live in large cities might find that my definition of traffic is different than yours.  If I see more than about 10 cars waiting at a stop light, I consider that traffic is almost gridlocked.  Other folks might disagree, but I'm a small-town fellow.
