I am now down here in Baton Rouge on business. I’m getting a check and everything. Before I got married I rarely traveled for pleasure. I was traveling enough for business and family, I saw no need spend my own money to go somewhere. My wife loves travel. I have adjusted my thinking. I have figured out the difference between personal and business travel. For personal travel you get to go where you (or your wife) want to go but there is no per diem check and no one meets you at the airport.
I had some time off yesterday and one of my coworkers suggested that there might be some antiques dealers nearby. So, wanting to try something new, I ventured out to see what I could see. I found one complex that had an assortment of shops with many interesting things to see. And I saw.
