Hangin' in Austin, TX

Instead of working in Chi Town last week I carried my work along with me to Austin, TX. It was an important week for my younger daughter Kaleema. She was the key note speaker for the NAACP's Annual Banquet and she hosted a house warming in her tiny and cute house where friends and friends of friends gathered with her!

In the process I met two great sisters that invited me out to lunch the next day at Oasis, a great restaurant with an incredible view. The day was very overcast and so I will definitely have to return to really appreciate the view.

I am grateful to Rose and Ruby, two sisters that I met at the party, who came and picked me up for lunch the next day. Here are the pictures I took at Oasis:

This is the first of a number of sculptures that were all in the garden at the Oasis.

Another great sculpture!
