Very Long Day, Part 2 - Sun., June 16

After freshening up at home, we headed to downtown San Antonio to pick up Randall from the bus station. He came down to visit his dad and have a second job interview.

With Randall safely ensconced in the car, we headed out to Random, a new event venue being developed near Boerne City Lake. Randall met with the owner and owner's girlfriend to discuss restoration work and building projects. While he was doing that, Bob and I drove over to Boerne's Berges Fest to see what that was all about.

Here are our impressions...

Bob - a vendor from Germany
Third day of festival + hot sun = naptime.
Tractor races.
Weiner dog races - one of the entrants.
Real tattoos or henna?
Boerne Berges Fest Court.
Jockeying for a  spot to watch wiener dog racing.
This young man was really into his playing!
He was dancing and getting into the music.
Wiener dog racing.
Boerne downtown.

Bob bought me a hot pink, wide-brimmed hat.
When we finished at Berges Fest, we headed back to Random to pick up Randall and go have a Father's Day dinner at Pappacito's. Randall and I ordered quail in a chipotle sauce and Bob had chicken enchiladas. Excellent meal.

The bar at Pappacito's had the Spurs-Heat finals game. Randall kept running over to check on the score. As soon as we finished eating, we raced back to Rigamarole so they could finish watching the game. With a minute left to play and the Spurs up by 13, they decided it would be a good time for Bob to drive Randall back to Austin.

Bowie totally relaxed.
What a position!
The end.
That's it for today.


  1. What's with men not knowing what to put on their feet? If you're wearing shorts, especially "Leder Hosen", I somehow don't think black socks and "Crocs" are the answer. What happened to the rest of the costume? Where's that guy's wife? But wait, he probably doesn't have one.
    Some days I'm just not proud of my fellow gents. Not proud. *sigh*

    Looks like you had a fine day. How did the interview go?

    1. The gentleman in the picture you referred to is Bob - he is in his 80's and is from Germany - he is a vendor and after a long day or two or three - he can wear whatever he wants on his feet for comfort - and his lovely wife, Paula, doesn't mind a bit - they are a great couple of folks that pass no judgment on anyone, especially for what they have on their feet ... Prost!

  2. What a pretty little town Boerne is. . .and the PeachTree Cafe has yummy eats. . .
