Saturday, Karen, Connor and I drove to Austin to visit Dave and walk around  the UT campus. We had a lunch at Mamma Mam's and went walking and shopping.  Photos are clickable to embiggen :)

Group of protesters in front of the Scientology Center. They tried to hand me pamphlets and told me Scientology was a cult. I said, "No thanks," and informed them they were preaching to the choir.

I enjoyed the murals around Austin. Here are a few of them.




We went to Quackenbush to have a coffee and treat and let Karen visit memory lane. Con bought a lovely iced valentine cookie to give to this girl he digs. The drive home was hard. we were both tired. I was less tired, so I drove. I slept beautifully. I am glad we did a log of walking (even though I had girlie issues and my back was killing me) and the weather was great for it. Con liked the campus and it did have the effect we wanted: to make Connor more excited about College.

Apparently the BBC reckons most people will have only read 6 of the 100 books here.
Instructions:
1) Look at the list and put an 'x' after those you have read.
2) Add a '+' to the ones you LOVE.
3) Star (*) those you plan on reading.
4) Tally your total at the bottom.

57 is not as many as it should be, but not nearly 6. Suck it BBC
