Gawks at art. Drinks an IPA or two. Tempranillo also works. Spins vinyl in his headphones. Longtime Longhorn. Just capable enough around the house to be dangerous.

Books of all types. Schnauzer on my lap. Farmers markets make my day. Looking for a good picture. Stir-fry, omelets, homegrown tomatoes. Make it an ale or sauvignon blanc.
