Saturday I took a field trip with the Austin chapter of the American Sewing Guild. We went to beautiful Llano, a couple of hours west of Austin. We had a lovely day meandering through the shops. We ate a wonderful catered lunch at the home of Lisa Dalrymple where mayor Mike Reagor joined us. Afterwards, we toured the courthouse, which has been restored, and the jail, which looks almost exactly as it did when it was built in 1895. It was in use until 1982.

Llano calls itself the Deer Capitol of the World. While I was there I picked up a loaf of sliced wheat bread from Inman’s Kitchen. They are famous for their barbecue, but I like their bread most of all. Why, it’s just the best thing since sliced bread. Oh wait, it is sliced bread!
