I got in to the office one Thursday morning and discovered I was being
sent to Austin on Sunday morning for a week! Despite the short notice,
the trip went fairly well and I got the next weekend to wander around
and see the sights. The only real bad part was the horrid hire car that
pretended it had greased tyres as soon as there was the slightest spot
of rain. Which was a bit of a problem as the Saturday couldn't decide
whether to be sunny or a torrential down pour! Sunday was glorious
sunshine all day though :-).
The office was the highest building for miles so was the favourite
resting spot for the local bird life. Including hawks and vultures!
