This was my best friend during my Mexico days (well, next to SWMBO) - Walter Nixon.
Native of Harlingen, Texas - long time resident of New York City.
Proudly wearing his Garrison Keillor-approved Powdermilk Biscuits t-shirt, Walter was attending the annual chili festival.
And no, I don't think it was Pepsi he was drinking from those cups.
For those longtime readers of this blog you may remember that Walter was the father of reknowned Broadway, television and movie actress Cynthia Nixon.
He was very proud of her.
