Just got in from visiting Preacherman out in Louisiana.
You know, I don't really associate Texas with pine trees -- nor Louisiana either -- but I-20 east of the Metroplex and I-49 south of Shreveport sure cured me of that misconception.
Beautiful, beautiful scenery.
Xavier and AD showed up -- and the story-telling got started.
Mildly interrupted by a fantastic seafood meal, followed by a digestif of South African spirits -- and then the tale-spinning, opining and debating really took off.
Ladies and gentlemen, if you ever have the chance to sit down and chew the fat with Peter, AD and Xavier, I suggest that you jump at the chance -- a more polite, knowledgeable, funny, courteous and all-around decent set of gentlemen would be difficult to find.
A good time, in good company -- I should do this more often.
