The Weekend in San Antonio

cindygerb and I are back from San Antonio. It went better than I thought it would. We were in air conditioning most of the time. Almost all the time we were there, we spent most of our time with Cindy's Mom in the hospital. We thought she was doing better but she had a relapse yesterday, on her birthday. But it looks like she'll make it.
The time that we weren't with Cindy's mom, we were packing books and such to be shipped up here. Greyhound wants $1/lb. to ship books. That seems a bit pricey. Amtrak will do it for $.48/lb. but they are only open for cargo shipments from 12:30 am to 8:30 am. Considering that we had a 5pm flight out, getting the books there was problematic. Thankfully, Cindy has a good friend that took them to the train station for us.
We did have decent food while we were down there. I had grits and Cindy has Bill Miller's Barbecue. We both of course had mexican food.

Something very amusing happened on our way through the security checkpoint at SeaTac. I had taken off my hat and my pouch to put it through the x-ray machine. There was a sign that said "Anything that you are wearing that has metal on it must run through the x-ray machine." Cindy quipped that she should remove her clothes since they had metal zippers. When we got to the front of the line, I asked the female security person whether I should remove all my clothes since they all had zippers. She said "Sure!" I was surprised. People in mundane society aren't supposed to flirt with me; it's unheard of. Possibly the hair helped.
