Well, I'm back from Austin. Spread a few of the tip cards around, but when it came down to it, I couldn't bring myself to stiff the workin' stiffs & just 'added' them to the normal tips I gave. Confined myself to the hotel & spent virtually nada, though. So THERE, Austin.
On a lighter note, getting ready to take my grandchildren to San Diego for the usual summer tourist stuff & heard a rumor today that vandals have taken to targeting vehicles with AZ plates over there. Bashing lights, knifing tires, spray painting, that sort of thing. SD & LA areas.
Nice (and brilliant) way to treat guests, no? I'd be interested to hear confirmation (or otherwise) of those rumors before heading over there. Certainly not seeing any news reports.
