The Bat at the Grove

So the little Honda from East Tennessee has a new nickname:
The Black Bat.
Fitting for a little black car that now resides near the home of the world's largest urban bat colony, no?
Here she is just hanging out at Shady Grove.
I had a Hippie Sandwich and a cup of Airstream Chili.
Jamye had a Turkey Sandwich and a cup of Green Chile Chicken Soup.
I assume that the Bat had a few bugs.


So laden with pecans is our little tree next to the driveway that not one but two branches took a tumble last week.
These are exciting times here in Austin.

She was a good car. We'll miss her.

Did we mention...

that our friends, Chelle and Christian, were in town from California for a long weekend in June.

We ate, drank and were merry. Here are C&C making merry with us at the Hula Hut on Lake Austin.

For those of you who may not be aware of some of the current hair stylings for telecommunication experts who occasionally moonlight as drummers in Los Angeles, Christian is sporting a what is commonly referred to as a fauxhawk. The fauxhawk, while generally rare in Texas and Tennessee, can be spotted from time to time in Austin.
