I'm about 95% sure I know just where this is! And it's going to get warmer too. I'm not as brave as you are Sonia.

and I'm 100% sure I know it... Who will be beat me! I throw down the scooter tag gauntlet! But, I won't go unless it's over 45 degrees...

Oh, and look, they have a big green egg on the porch!

I didn't get the house today, but I did go get the Caddie today. It wasn't too bad. The scooter measured 51-67F, depending upon if I was moving or not. I only went out for an hour. I had to go get the Austin Scooter Club tag too. I still need to get a neck gator, because my neck and chin are getting cold.

Man, that looks really familiar, but I have no idea where it is. I probably won't get a chance until this weekend anyway. Work is getting busy again

It's one of those places that probably most people in Austin have driven by but maybe not completely noticed... The business is apropos for the mural.

I cannot for the life of me, think where I took this pic.
I had saved it to post it as a Tag later,
but puddn' beat me to it!
I even went today to where I thought
I had taken it, but it wasn't there.
I was on Lamar. North of 5th st, but no sight of it.
mmmhhhhh.....
Hahaha, can you remind me?
and if it's not Lamar, then Guadalupe it must be.
Coz I came to it by chance, and I hardly go that way.
It's been a handful of full moons since I took it

The previous tag was the north wall of the Flower Bucket on Lamar. Cool that you already had it!

I remember that place. It used to be orange/terracotta though. I haven't been by there in a while. Good tag.

The mural is also the current tag on Austin Scooter club. Feel free to get a twofer, just post a different new tag than the house.

I have not been playing long, but I am getting confused with the 4 games I am trying to play. I don't have time to go get it. Maybe someone else will. Now that it has been outed.

I also feel a selfish loyalty to this game since I did the first tag and maintain the scooter tag map...

Hint for TAG
The home was designed by the first African American to enroll in and graduate from the University of Texas School of Architecture.

Awesome. I was just reading about it. If I weren't bad at drawing and already an electrical engineer, I would be an architect. Kinda like George on Seinfeld:)

Too bad I am busy, and the weather is turning. Otherwise, I would go get it. Maybe this weekend will be okay. After someone tags it, can you post the link to the inside pics? All I could find was an outside pic.

I'll look for the inside pics, but they were on the real estate for sale listing and may not be available any more... Art Vandelay, heh heh...

It's a really cool house. This is a bit different angle. Unfortunately, the weather turned really cool on me too I also got chased by a rabid dog Actually, he wasn't foaming at the mouth, so I am probably exaggerating

Brown
Saw a brown GT or GTS in the garage of Whole Foods today. Did they make brown? I didn't think so...but? We were like coffee and cream next to each other.

Brown and Bronze are listed as new colors for the 2010 GTS on the UK Vespa site. I think they are in the pdf brochure. I would have to see it in person, because I am usually not a brown fan.
