Coffee and Competition – Corona Caf√© Austin Texas

My three friends and I were headed to a quilter’s studio to check out her hand dyed fabric (stay tuned) Anne needed REAL coffee.¬† Tucked away on Corona Drive in a mini strip of businesses was Corona Caf√©

These two men were going to play disc golf but the rain kept them inside on Saturday morning.

“We felt like doing something competitive.”¬† So here they are in Corona Caf√© playing Scrabble.

The barista made us excellent coffee.

Naiman was so nice.  I asked him about his name.  His father got it off the back of a car but it is a Mongolian warrior. He told us we could look it up.    Naiman

Matt Carries Freshly Baked Croissants

He was headed to Enrico’s Biscotti Company.¬† I was headed to Ohio.

Wait, may I take your photo?  I wanted to get out the real camera, not the phone.

I was parked just in front of his truck

He was so nice.¬† His name’s Matt.¬† He baked these down on 31st Street and was bringing them to Enrico’s Biscotti. If you saw the movie The Bread My Sweet/ A Wedding for Bella, you’ve been inside bakery.

And this is the part you are never going to believe.

I watched that very movie (renamed A Wedding for Bella) not twelve hours before I ran into Matt taking the croissants to the same bakery in the film. If you click on the title above you can read Roger Ebert’s review.¬† All filmed in Pittsburgh, right in the Strip District.

School Breakfast at my Desk

A two hour delay again this morning.

For the¬†first time in three years, I got breakfast from the cafeteria the other day. The “bagel” doughy and sweet but I was hungry.

You can see a pair of #35 knitting needles peeking out on the left.  Coffee provided by my neighbor the librarian.School Breakfast

Me on Big Screen TV, Sort of

When I parked the car to go to coffee this morning, I saw this huge TV on the sidewalk, waiting for the trash.

(Another title could be Trash Selfie?)

Me on Big Screen TVYes it was really windy.

The inviting scene as I parked the car.

Old School Coffee at My Sister’s in NYC

When I woke up in Mary’s apartment this morning, after an 11 hour sleep, this was the welcoming sight. She was heating milk and making coffee. Last night we took 3 subways to the Metropolitan Museum of Art and saw the tree lighting with the Neopolitan Baroque Creche (stay tuned) Today it’s art and photography excursions but getting fortified first. ¬†A bit grainy on the iPhone shots.
