    Yeah, I’m sure @cbuck would agree that Mr. Overton had the three necessities of life nailed - cigars, whiskey, and ice cream every day.    B)

    I did see this the other day but I was at work and didn't have time to find my favorite pic of him. RIP Sir.


    While searching for this I saw that he's still sitting on his front porch on google maps. Search 2011 Hamilton Ave. Austin TX. Awesome.
