Back in the South
Posted by: McQ on Sunday, March 26, 2006

St. Louis is a nice town and I enjoyed myself but it sure is nice to be back in the warm and sunny south. As if to ensure I understood the difference, St. Louis managed to spit frozen percipitation at me all week.

My brother is doing great. Operation appears to be a complete success (the pain he had in his shoulder and arm 24/7 for 2 1/2 years is gone). We got the opportunity to vist which we don't get that often. Thanks to all who wished him well.

Another high note of the trip: while travelling back through Nashville, enroute to Atlanta, I had the opportunity to meet and talk with Billy Hollis. Billy has contributed to The New Libertarian and is a frequent commenter here. When I called him I asked if he had a 1/2 hour to spare. 2 hours later I finally had to break away and continue the journey home. Bright, articulate and thoroughly enjoyable to talk with, Billy is one of those guys who you feel you've known for years when you meet him (OK, Billy you know where to send the check). Unfortunately I drank so much coffee while sitting with him I was wired for sound. Next time Billy, decaf. And next time you're in Atlanta, call me.

As I sit here typing this, I'm looking out the window at the cherry trees in the yards around my house that are in full bloom. Beautiful. And there's my neighbor working in his yard in short sleeves. Perfect.

Yes it is sweet to be back home.

That must have been some high-octane coffee, because I got bit buzzed on it too.

Check’s in the mail, by the way...

Glad your brother is doing better Bruce.

I was on Jekyll Island for the weekend and it was freaking cold. Glad Atlanta was warm.
