No rest for the weary

There's nothing like a three-day holiday that turns into a no-day holiday. K. had to finish up on continuing-professional-education credits. Austin is full of returning students, football fans, and no telling who else. There's no room for the locals. Usually, Austin's at its most peaceful on one of those weekends when all return whence they came, but a football game changes everything. There were no distant church bells to be heard across the water and there was a lot of noise and fuss everywhere.
