Biz Travel


It's time for travel again. Doesn't happen that often. This time Little Rock for two days/one night. We have an electric utility organization with working committees to address issues of common interest. So I meet with fellow engineers for a couple days to talk about computer modeling and data submittals. May not be interesting to the masses, but it is to me. The meeting was in a nice hotel down by the Arkansas River in a revitalized section of downtown. Glad I wasn't paying for it. The hotel had a neat duck theme going that needed to be journaled about. I missed the marching in of the ducks, but I got to see the 5 p.m. marching out. Can't help but smile. One Mallard drake and four hens. Not perfectly trained, either, if there could ever be such a thing. But the eventually went where they needed to.

I like how you integrate the words and pictures in your journal entries.

Back East would be down the road a bit to Memphis Tennessee.. where the original Peabody is, and they to do the duck walk... it is indeed a sight to see. I didn't stay there but did do dinner back in the early 1970's at the Peabody in Memphis and got to see the duck walk then. Great page.
