Riled up at the Ryle's

Joe at Jo's

Out and about with sister P in Austin for the last couple of days. The best way to get my companions to sit for a while so that I can sketch is feed them and/or ply them with beverages. We spent some time in downtown and in the SoCo area prowling around and spending a surprisingly small amount of $$. Coffee at Jo's revived us for more.

My Drummer Boy

S played percussion in the Christmas Eve service at church - The Little Drummer Boy. He has played with them the last 3 years and is eager to play and seems to enjoy the hours of practice the week before. I know D and I enjoy him, and the music. I went early to pick him up from practice to get in a sketch of all the drummers on stage.

Bleu Cheese Burger @ Dutch's

It is a good thing we do not live in Ft. Worth. During our Thanksgiving visit to sister P in that part of Texas we went to Dutch's near the college there. We went based on a review in TX Monthly magazine. Guess I was hungry when I saw the photo in the mag, 'cause I just had to try their Bleu Cheese Burger.
The buns tasted homemade and the melty cheese, bacon and burger were awesome. Definitely belongs on the "Things I Shouldn't Eat" list, but yum!
