Rain, rain, we went away

Welcome to Texas sign and the Jones circus wagon

Welcome to Texas

The rain, rain, rain, did I mention RAIN, chased us out of Biloxi, Mississippi, a day early. Herman and I have had an interesting 436 miles on the road, featuring a night in the Walmart parking lot in (I am not kidding) Sulphur, Louisiana; the most interesting welcome center I have ever seen, smack in the middle of a Texas swamp; and a beautiful, sunny day along I-10 in western Louisiana. We’re settled in Houston–along with, to our  surprise, the National Rifle Association–for a couple of days. So much material for the next book!
