On the road again

I'm sitting in a bookstore in Kentucky, getting ready for a conference call on my way home from VB. I've had a heckuva time getting online. Maybe I've picked up a computer virus (my Zone Alarm and Avast! are both yelling at me to re-up). Either that, or the local Wi-Fi is reaaalllly slow and wonky. Who knows?

In the Good News department, I got pulled over by a policewoman just south of here on the Double-A. She checked my license and politely informed me that I was going 63 in a 55 mph zone. And that was that. God's looking out for me, for sure.

Still, it'll be good to get home some time tomorrow.
