My father, Liston Posey was born in
. When he was 8 - 12 years old, he climbed to the top of the bell tower and stood on the two criss-crossed pieces of iron,at the very top, and laughed. Been there more than a few times myself, and it scared me into a cold sweat to hear that story. I looked at the steps that went all the way up the bell tower one time and knew that my daddy was nuts when he did it.
I lived in
for nine years. Austin is very cool, except that it's so darned hot in the summer. Check out Barton Springs pool in Zilker park, an enormous spring-fed pool, always seventy degrees, perfect for a scorching day. A music reviewer for the Austin paper once wrote "Who's playing this weekend? Ho, hum, the usual embarassment of riches." No kidding. You can find live music any night of the week. Halloween in Austin is a sight to behold, thousands of people partying downtown.
In 1961, I attended
Westminister Bible Institute; I will never forget the goodness of the people, the homemade hamburgers down the road, and the wind that never stopped blowing.
Be prepared to have your deodorant handy! Walking around
in the summer is like being in a steamroom. I've never perspired so much in my entire life!
I grew up in
. I think it's funny that there is a hostel there. This is a small Texas town witha population of 307. There is a post office, a park, and there used to be a store. Also Trinity Institute is where Westminster College used to be and is supposedly haunted. That's about it, but it's a great place to just hang out.
hosts South by Southwest ("SXSW"), one of the largest music festivals world. The music passes are very expensive, but there are enough free music shows going on every day to keep you busy, so it's worth coming even if you don't get a music pass. Just don't expect to be able to book a hostel or hotel unless you book your room maybe about a year in advance.
