Home, Safe

We rolled in about 10:00 last night, home safe after a week.

It was a great shoot, under trying conditions.  The organizers did a great ob, the host venue was very accommodating, but the Covid restrictions and current practices made it tough for everyone.  We're a gregarious bunch, and it's impassible to maintain social distancing in a tight venue.

The original, planned venue might have been easier to maintain distance, but the CDC wanted to set up shop in Amarillo and kicked us out at the last minute and the event organizers had to scramble for a venue that might accommodate us.  The Big Texan took us in, and did everything they could do to make us comfortable.  We were grateful for their space and made it work.

Texas is a bit ahead of Louisiana in the Covid recovery, and is making it work.  They are still in Phase 2, but the restaurants are open.  Every other table has a Covid marker on it, and is not being used, but the restaurant is open.  It was very nice to sit inside at a restaurant table, order a meal and enjoy it with friends.

We wore the "new" off the new Honda Odyssey.  This trip was a great shake-down cruise and I learned a lot about it.  There are still a few things that I haven't figured out but the technology i this vehicle is amazing.  More on that later.  After coffee and unpacking the van, I have to go get the dawg, who has been at a borders this week.
