People watching in Gonzales, LA

Sitting on a bench outside the Tanger outlet mall watching the locals pass the time before they head to the LSU game this evening. (The line on the game is LSU by 43-45 points, with an over/under of 50.5. With those odds, I'd take Texas.)

Anyway, interesting things rolling and wandering around this particular parking lot: I saw a 4door SRT-10 Ram. Pretty cool. Lots of $300 cars with $4000 worth of wheels and tires. And of course, several rolling stereos vibrating their license plates like they were ghetto-rattle snakes.

Reason we're here, beyond the time waste factor is, we netted out about $520 ahead after a couple hours playing blackjack and PaiGow Poker at the Argosy casino this morning. So, the girls are getting some new church clothes with a little of the winnings. Plus the weather is great. 75 degrees and bright sun. Very nice.

Update: Game final was LSU 56, NTS 3. Covered the spread and the over. That is why I play poker.

You guys are too much! So glad that you're family again! It's so nice to have people around that you care about so deeply! I'm almost envious of the weather! (not quite!)
