Hola, Senor Cellular!

One of our favorite things about our new house is our new mascot.  Our old mascot--by our old apartment--was the Spec's bunny, a well-known Houston icon.


Now, instead of the Spec's bunny, we live just down the street from Senor Cellular.

Perhaps the only thing better than living down the street from a mustachioed anthropomorphic cell phone is that every time we drive past Eddy yells, "Hola, Senor Cellular!"

Thanks to Dana, Queen of the Yuppies, we are training for the Bike Around the Bay. It's another 150 mile ride, but this time around the Galveston bay. Eddy has been pestering me to do some cross-training, so we finally bought this beauty.

That's right. It's a circa 1970s Montgomery Ward Hawthorne. Oh, and by the way... it's gold. It also has this.

We're not too many weeks away from the ride now, so this gem will come in handy.

For the First Time Since I Can't Remember When

It was a little cooler outside. I might even say it was pleasant. We parked ourselves on the front porch first thing in the morning to enjoy the breeze and the downright livable temperature.

We even opened the windows for essentially the first time since we have owned this house. As a result, the neighbor dogs--Kit and Tess--discovered our cats--Rupert and Ada.

Commence taunting and barking.
