Why is it I felt the need to inform my TWITTER followers, my Facebook friends, and my Houston MetBlogs coauthors that I am going to be out of town? Why do I feel a responsibility to keep them all “in the loop?” In the past, I would have simply blogged about it here – quite possibly not even until I was either in the middle of, or back from, the trip.

Well, if you aren’t in one of the lists I’ve already notified, I am going to Lake Charles, Louisiana for the weekend. I will be sure to take pictures.
