I love Austin

Sorry guys. I have been meaning to post, but the batteries are dead in my camera and posts without pictures are boring. But I had to share this tidbit.

I had an "I'm not in LA anymore" moment this morning. I went through the Tuscany coffee drive through (in the Tuscany Shell station on the 360). I ordered a large sugar-free non-fat latte and a blueberry bran muffin. I got to the window to discover that my wallet was not in my bag. It must have slipped out somewhere yesterday. I apologized to the man at the window. Do you know what happened next? He gave me the coffee and muffin anyway! He told me he'd ring it up as cash, and to bring the $6.44 by sometime today. That would NEVER happen in LA. People actually trust strangers to do the right thing here. I love Austin.

By the way. I found my wallet. I left it in my gym bag yesterday. I will pay back the nice man on my way home from work today.

I too love Austin - I'm so glad I live here! And I love your blog - I just stumbled upon it via Sew Retro. I'll be back!
