It's Getting Warmer

It's 92 in Austin right now. This day last year - 86. I'm not looking forward to the coming summer.

#4SqDay Austin @MolotovAustin

Foursquare Day was this past Saturday and we attended the local event at Molotov on 6th Street. It was our first time at Molotov and we really enjoyed it. Nice open bar and decent prices on both drinks and beer. Dixi even won a shirt! Here's some pictures.

Anniversary Postcard - Chicago, Illinois

Dixi and I received another postcard today. This one is from Christopher in Chicago. Chris is the proprietor of two blogs. The first is Notes From Underground, which you will find over there on the right in our "Stuff We Read". He also writes movie reviews on Netflix Stream. Both are well worth checking out.


From 10th Anniversary

A breathtaking view of the Chicago River.

Thank you Christopher!

Because, Apparently, I'm Still 13

I know....I know....
But there's still a part of me that laughs a bit on the inside.

Anniversary Postcard - Sequim, Washington

Dixi and I received our first 10th Anniversary postcard today from Shannon at Sequim Daily Photo. She even place a little felt heart on the card!


From 10th Anniversary


Snow capped Olympic Mountains, sunshine and lavender fields await your visit as Sequim celebrates the beauty and usefulness of this sweet-smelling herb annually during its peak bloom season in July during the Celebrate Lavender Festival, held since 1996.

From 10th Anniversary


Thank you Shannon!

Modern Mopar Car Club Show

We got to go to another car show today. This one was hosted by the Capital City Modern Mopar Club here in Austin.

Here's a couple of pictures of some of the vehicles. As always, I've added all the pictures I took today to the Car Show page. Enjoy!

The Male-Female Color Chart

Dixi has a real eye for color. She can name 32 different shades of just about any color, including black. She's tried to teach me from time to time but I've resisted even trying. Although I think I did say "fuchsia" once and she almost shed a tear. I guess she's still trying to train me after all these years.

She wasn't amused when I sent her this. Not because it outlines the difference between men and women, but because the woman is wearing cowboy boots with a skirt. Dixi doesn't like that look evidently.

Anniversary Planning Update

So our 10th wedding anniversary is coming up the end of this month and I'm trying to come up with some ideas to make it as memorable as possible for Dixi. This being the case, I'm taking her to Gruene on the 30th to see Roger Clyne & The Peacemakers at Gruene Hall. We've been huge fans since way back when they were know as the Refreshments.

I'd also like to take a moment to thank Christopher from Notes From Underground for helping to get the word out about what I'm trying to do with the postcards idea.

I don't mind spending a bit of cash on Dixi, and I do that on a regular basis. But I also prefer to do things that will be more memorable as well. So if you have any ideas, please let me know!

10th Annual Lonestar Rod & Kustom Roundup

This weekend Dixi and I went to the 10th Annual Lonestar Roundup at the Travis County Expo Center. We spent at least 5 hours wandering around admiring the 100's of cars and trucks on display.


From Lonestar Roundup


We got to see Jesse James pulling into the show and hanging out with his folks from the Austin Speed Shop.

This had to be one of the wildest ideas I've seen for a Nash Metropolitan in a long time.

I think this was my personal favorite from the show today. Just beautiful.

Living Quarters, Part 2

I recently wrote about a couple in Manhattan who spent $150,000 on their "microstudio" apartment.

Well today I came across one even smaller! How about 90 square feet for just over $700 a month? I guess that's cheap by New York City standards.
