We now have suround sound in our house and on our patio. If I could only figure out how to use it, I could be watching a movie, t.v. or listening to music in suround sound.
We’re pleased to inform you that you’ve been accepted to The University of Texas at Austin. We recommend that you contact your graduate adviser as soon as possible. It’s a pleasure to welcome you as a graduate student.
We love to go to the horse track. That is one of the things we miss about the Dallas area. We found out that there is a small horse track in Manor, so we had to go. It doesn’t have all the bells and whistles that Lone Star Park does, but the horses run around in circles just the same. It’s almost like being at a minor league game. My husband won about $250 on an exacta, so he didn’t seem to mind!
Austin is finally turning into Dallas. They’ve now opened a shopping center that just REEKS of Dallas over on Mopac and Duval called The Domain. It’s a nice outdoor mall with a Neimans and Macy’s. You can buy high end purses, clothes and much much more. We ate at the restaurant Kona Grill that was good but very “corporate”. I’m excited about a new place to shop and eat, but a little saddened over what this place represents. So much for keeping Austin wierd!
I need the following pieces of furniture in order to have things the way I want them: coffee table, kitchen table and sofa table. I went to a couple of stores today and didn’t find anything. Where are the good discount furniture places? I want nice furniture for a good deal.
Johnny Cash seems to be the central theme of the Mean-Eyed Cat on 5th and Mopac. He’s on all the walls and on the Juke Box. When I was a little, Johnny Cash was my favorite singer. I loved “A Boy Named Sue” because it was such a silly song. (It was written by Shel Silverstein, so that kind of explains it for me now!)
The Mean-Eyed Cat is one of my favorite places to go because it has a nice patio that’s not so loud that you can’t talk. However, their picnic tables are pretty uncomfortable and I felt like I was hunching all night. I liked that they have Mexican blankets all over the place that you can sit on or wrap yourself up in if you are cold.
I saw a sign out front that said someone was moving, but I’m not sure if it was them or another business nearby..
It’s been a long time since I went to a girl’s softball game. Probably the last time I went to one, I was playing. Hmmm…That’s been about 30 years or so… Anyway, I think they must’ve changed the rules or something. We used to have to pitch to the other team and they pitched to us. At this game, our coach pitched to our team and the the other coach pitched to his team. When did that happen? Why did that happen? When do the girls start pitching for themselves? It was a lot of fun and I’m glad I went.
