Change Of Heart

Roger and I went on a little date last night. We started at the Texas History Museum for a free concert by Ray Wylie Hubbard. It was a lot of fun. Ray Wylie Hubbard is a Texas legend, very entertaining and hilarious. I had to use the digital zoom on my tiny camera to get a close up of Ray while he performed so my pictures aren't great. We'll definitely be going back in two weeks for the Austin Knights Brass Band. I'd love to go next Friday for El Tule but I don't think I could drag Roger out there again. Then we headed over to the new 2nd Street District downtown to find a spot for dinner. We decided on Taverna. It was great. We highly recommend this restaurant. Our waiter Scott was great, the food was delicious and our wine paired with every course perfectly. The best part of the night was the end with their homemade tiramisu and Roger loved their espresso.

So I don't know if it's all this snake talk lately or the wine from dinner, but I had a creepy dream last night about snakes and frogs. And as more snakes and frogs appeared in the dream, they were bigger and fatter and creepier, if that's a word. It woke me up before 4:00 a.m. and I couldn't go back to sleep for a while. All I could think about was creepy snakes and gross frogs. I like both animals but this dream creeped me out. I kept thinking of creepier scenarios like does having one snake in your yard invite more snakes. I walk around a lot bare footed and the thought of stepping on snakes freaked me out. So I decided at 4:oo a.m. that snake on our back patio had to go.

You should stick the snake in the neighbor's backyard. Hopefully it'll keep the other little critters from escaping into your backyard. Sneaky will probably live to be fat and happy.
