teepee time

The rain hung around Austin all weekend. It was one of those lovely, gray-filled weekends. We are finally out of the "burn ban," and water is actually pooling in the grass rather than evaporating immediately.

We decided to go out for dinner Friday, but skipped the comedy club. Instead we hung out at our favorite pizza restaurant and listened to music. I had exactly two quarters, which we put towards a few songs from the jukebox. Ryno chose a Granddaddy song while I picked a song from Tom Petty. Fortunately there was a family with little kids who also wanted to play music from the jukebox. Since the kids didn't know any of the albums the parents were dictating all the music choices, which brought up some Dolly Parton and Patsy Cline. I was pretty thrilled. Saturday we had Ryno's office party, which was a lot of fun. The evening though rainy was very warn, so we were able to be outside and check out the teepee. Yes a real teepee. Ryno decided we need one too. I agree it would be a pretty amazing way to sleep outside.
