"Onward Thru The Fog": Oat Willie's, Austin, TX

Oat Willie’s is a headshop at West 29th Street and Guadalupe that was founded by Norman “Doug” Brown in 1968. The name “Oat Willie” is from an Austin-based comic character. The famous Oat Willie’s motto (on numerous bumper stickers since the 1970s) is: “Onward Thru the Fog.”
Obviously my friend JD, "the walking counterculture encyclopedia" would know of (and insist on visiting) Oat Willie's.

In my defense, I agreed to meet him without first asking what he was going to wear.

This is the first of 2 "T-Shirts Of The Week" I acquired in Austin, and yet another addition to my ridiculous wardrobe.

Man, I need to start throwing some sh*t out...
