Today, on my last day in the city, I took another yoga class and also rented one of the city bikes.
The bikes are provided by the city of Austin. $8 for fist 1/2 hour and $4 an hour after. I downloaded a promo code and got 1/2 off. It made for a very pleasant way to explorethe city.
I rode down 6th street and had a bite at Sandra Bullock’s restaurant called, Walton’s. Delightful!
This cowboy was taking a break from being a bad ass in snake skin boots. He was sitting there as I snapped this photo. He turned around and caught me in the act. He said,
” You takin my picture darlin?”
I said, “yea, I am. I like your boots, is that o.k.?”
He replied, ” you know whaaat, if you want to get a real good picture, point that camera in the mirror and get a picture of that smile! My momma said you can tell if someone’s got a good heart from their smile.”
“Awwe thank you”-I say
“God Bless you” – he says.
I went on my way. This is just normal stranger to stranger banter..
