Cowgirl?

Cowgirl

You meet all kinds in Texas.

This guy was one of the nicest. Calm, friendly, and his ancestors have been rambling around the state for generations. Though I understand he is not exactly a guy in the strictest sense of the word, but a longhorn steer. Isn’t he pretty?

I fell in love with Central Texas last April when we visited the area around Brenham, Washington-on-the-Brazos and, afterward, Austin. April is particularly beautiful for the spectacular wildflowers. I had had no idea this area was turning into a copy of California wine country: vineyards, expensive, yummy little eateries, shops and all! And we hard some of the best music at Luckenbach while eating barbecue and drinking beer at a picnic table.

I had mainly come here for research on my novel, Here We Stand, but why not have a little fun at the same time? On this two-month trip to Texas and Louisiana, between Texas barbecue, Cajun fried and New Orleans seafood, I probably gained about eight pounds. Oh well. It’ll come off this summer. I hope.

She sees food as fun, you say? You betcha.

What’s your favorite fattening fun?
