Austin Girl

i'm a mommy, a supportive wife (mostly), a loving daughter, a lazy but well-meaning friend, a texan, a reformed party girl, a slacker, a seeker, a chameleon, a reluctant L.Alien, trying to find the meaning of life in los angeles.

homeward bound

howdy pardners!

we hit the trails at sunrise. our annual trek to texas for the holidays. have so much to do before the morning. this year i will make a list of things i want to do in austin. somehow we always have so many things we want to do, and then the vacation goes by in a blur.

#1 on my list this year, go to 37th Street to see the most awesome lights and display of neighborhood unity in the universe. this little hippy neighborhood pulls out all the stops, from junk vehicles filled to the brim with lights, to a guy who has so many lights, he has a path of lights leading to his electric meter which is surrounded, of course, with lights where you can see the needle spinning out of control. this is truly a spectacle to behold. neighbors come out and serve hot chocolate and cider as people stroll down the street.

#2- the ZILKER PARK TREE. also a thing to behold, and a tradition from the time i was born. didn't make it the last two years, but the kid will get a kick out of spinning under it. it stands 155 feet tall, and is composed of 39 streamers made up of 3,309 lights!

#3- SHADY GROVE for the hipie sandwich and a margarita.

#4- Out to hear a band. My childhood friend Paul LeMond's band will be playing at THREADGILL's on January 3rd.

this is it for now. probably will think of more later.

My dearest girl, I’m so sorry that I can’t be with you and the little schmoop on this Valentine’s Day, but I am thinking of you every minute of each day. The thoughts of the two of you is what keeps me warm on these cloudy Winter days here in cold and rainy Hamburg.

Love, Husb
