You mean Region III? Region XIII is in Austin, but perhaps you had to saunter through on occasion. You may know it has expanded. They now have conference rooms and more offices on the former Victoria HS campus.

Ron Paul has gone a bit overboard lately. Interestingly, he was my congressman in Houston before I moved to Victoria.

The town lost its only major bookstore, leaving us with a store for used books. On the plus side, UH-Victoria keeps growing and growing.

I did mean Region III, sorry. I taught at Rice CISD. We went to Victoria for in-service.

Rice Con, eh? Well, that's a little out of the way for in-service. Me, I would go out my way to avoid in-service.

I enjoy ANY opportunity to travel at my employer's expense, rare as they are. We always had a lot of fun on those road trips. I would get irritated by the thought police at ESC, though. They were downright savage toward the men. That would always tick me off.

Oh, sure. I took any opportunity to attend something out of town. Who would pass up an opportunity to eat fabulously at company expense AND get out of the classroom?

The people at ESC - well, anybody with the temerity to tell teachers how to do their job - are a breed apart. I looked for opportunities to get even, though. Once I wrote a movie review of an in-service presentation. Anything to kill time and have fun at their expense.

The matrons at Region III lost my respect when they started a two-day inservice by spending several minutes giving meticulous directions to several ladies' rooms throughout the building, then saying "Guys, we don't know where the men's rooms are, so you're on your own." Gee, talk about your warm welcome. :nooo:
