Port Aransas

We spent the weekend with friends in Port Aransas. Its a few hours around the gulf and is totally charming in a tacky-beach-town-that-hasn't-changed-since-the-80s sort of way.

You may remember me complaining about all the problems we've had with animals living under (and possibly in?) our home last winter - along with our ensuing efforts to get rid of them. This winter the experience was repeated, and after removing two dead possums from under our porch (so glad I'm not the man in this relationship), we decided it was time.

So we had lattice installed around the whole house. Definitely not the most exciting way I've ever spent my money, but no cats, racoons or possums will be living under our home anymore!

More than one person I've told about this has said, "yeah, but squirrels, mice and rats can still fit through those holes."

To which I say, "la la la la la - I can't hear you - la la la la la."

TJ's idea of dessert

also in austin

Our neighbor had his car in a classic car show in austin the same weekend.

The people watching was as fun as the cars.

Everyone was dressed like 50's pin up girls and greasers. Well, not everyone...

we're not in college anymore

We went to Austin this weekend to see Camera Obscura. We didn't find out till we got there that they wouldn't be performing until 11:30 pm. TJ took the news much better than I did.

any excuse to hide eggs

When I told people at work we were going to have an easter egg hunt for TJ's brother and sister, they said 'oh, cute! how old are they?' --- "17 and 19" ---- "oh..."

When I told Heather and Michael to bring their baskets for an easter egg hunt they thought I was joking.

I think its totally normal.
