A beautiful Austin skyline.  The downtown buildings all lit, the atmosphere delightful.  Thus was fourth of July.  Went to see the fireworks, first time.  It was amazing, and beautiful.  They say about 100,000 people were there that day/night.  I can believe it.  The place was packed, I was one of the 100,000.  Yes!  This is the place I live, and the beauty that I see.

Day 233:

Today I am…  OK!  Today I almost had a new client, but missed it by a couple of points, but that is OK, because I can get do overs until I can get it.  This client is one of their top if in fact their top clients, just one of the harder ones, just because of its size and so many different aspects of it.  I am not a fan of it, but once I get it, I will treat it just like my other clients.  I am sure that if not tomorrow, the following week I will get more cracks at it, lol.  They are starting to get everyone trained on it one way or the other.  It is what it is…

The weather has been cloudy the past couple of days, looks like it is threatening to rain, but shall see.  It sure is hot though.  I will take this over the dreadful cold any day.  Bah, tomorrow, workers will be putting new wood around the doors, of our apartments, that means that I will not be able to have my air on, and they will have doors open until they are done.  But if it is going to make the apartments look nice, then I say hey what’s a few hours without air.

So I just picked up the Austin Chronicle today, in it is a piece about another hotel going up downtown, it will be where the Wholly Cow burger shop is, and there is another business there as well.  I have to say, that there are way to many hotels, going up, it is changing the way the beautiful Austin Skyline looks, before you know it, this place called downtown, is going to be so crowded, that you won’t be able to see anything except big skyscraper towers and buildings, and that is sad.  I love the skyline, but it is changing every day.  You will only be left with the memories, and photos before all the buildings.

Well my friends, and loyal reader’s I am about done for the day, about to hit me up some Netflix, before bedtime, hope you enjoy the start of your weekend.

Today I am…  OK!

When it’s gone, its’ gone…

I am talking about the beautiful Austin skyline.  There are more and more high rises going up, more hotels and so forth.  It will not be long before the beauty is lost.  When will it be enough?

Jaw Marriott in the heart of downtown, just another high rise hotel.  I love the beauty of the skyline, but soon this downtown will look so cramped, you will not be able to see anything but huge, tall, obstructions.  Oh! When will enough be enough…  you know the saying just may be truth in this situation…  “Bigger ain’t always better”.
