I took the day off, and Monte and I made a trip to South Austin. You may be familiar with the “Greetings from Austin” mural. It was first painted in 1998. It only took me 15 years, but I finally got down there in August to see it myself. When I did, i saw how deteriorated the mural had become. Here is a link to the photo I took back in August. Since then the building owners raised money to restore the wall behind the mural and repaint it. They started the renovation about a month ago and just finished it. Below is a photo of the brand-spanking-new version that I took today.
