I spent most all day Saturday with a bunch of nice folks at the San Antonio (Texas) Genealogical and Historical Society. I had the honor of making several presentations at the Society's annual fall seminar.
I threw my back out Thursday morning and couldn't even stand up straight for a while. At the Saturday seminar, I delivered most of my presentations while seated in a comfortable office chair that my hosts graciously provided. That may not be proper etiquette for a speaker, but I really wasn't prepared to stand on my feet all day with a back that wouldn't cooperate.
The folks at the San Antonio Genealogical and Historical Society were great hosts. They accommodated my need to sit most of the day. Not only were they kind to me, but they also laughed at all my jokes in exactly the right places. I was impressed.
I spent almost a year in San Antonio many years ago, back when I was a young man in the military. This weekend was my first return to the city since those days. I am delighted to report that San Antonio's residents are as kind and polite as ever. Some things don't change.
Details about next year's San Antonio Genealogical and Historical Society fall seminar probably will appear at http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~txsaghs2 within a few months.
