Just before going to San Antonio for work, I got to spend some time in Austin, Texas, with my co-worker Kristine! It was great to hang out with her. Among the excursions we made was a visit to the Texas State Capitol building. We went inside and walked around, including inside the legislative chamber. Among the many portraits of Texas governors are those of Ann Richards and George W. Bush. On the grounds of the capitol was a marble sculpture of the 10 Commandments — with bird droppings on it.
Kristine also took me to my first Texas Longhorns game! That was fun. After the game we saw Bevo — the team’s mascot.
