The only reason Bob and I knew about this restaurant was because they catered our RV park employee Christmas party. We remembered how good the food was and suggested it for lunch. The place doesn't look like much...it's a storefront in a strip mall in a run-down section of town. We didn't care.
Teri and Jerry were waiting for us at a table when we arrived. They were thrilled with our choice of restaurant. The waitress had already been by the table and offered to bring samples of some of their food. They said, "Yes, definitely." Soon we had little paper bowls with green beans, baked beans, sweet potato casserole, and baked potato casserole with itty bitty plastic spoons to sample the food. They also brought samples of smoked brisket, pork and sausage.
When we decided on our food, we ordered at the counter. Bob had a smoked turkey leg with potato salad and baked beans, I had smoked turkey breast with sweet potato casserole and coleslaw. Again, we shared our sides with each other.
Teri, Jerry, Bob and I shared an enthusiastic two-hour conversation about travel, civil war history, full-timing, Hawaii, life in the Pacific Northwest, museums, birds, photography, botanic gardens, and hiking trails. Our conversation wound down naturally and it was time to say our good-byes. We're hoping to see them again, if not in San Antonio, then somewhere down the road.
A huge thank you to Teri for the photos. I left my camera at the 5th wheel.

Tomorrow and Tuesday I'm on call as a convention back-up worker at the Convention Center.
All for now. Travel Bug out.
