As long as there's a kid in a room somewhere, with a beat-up guitar and some funny looking hair

You can't swing a dead bat in Austin without hitting someone carrying a guitar.

I like making the cowl for this guy. Unlike in New York, I remembered to give him a cape.

This particular wee toaty explorer is singing for his supper under the famous Congress Street Bridge.

I thought it seemed appropriate.

[A quick note on the title: I can't get this John Hiatt song out of my head. And it's only there because there's the line "Down in Austin, Texas; And up a New York way." Help.]

This is another in the continuing series of wee toaty explorers, a project to keep me busy while I'm on the road. A nice summary is here. The whole set is available if you click on Wee Toaty Explorers.
