Take Me Out to the Ball Game - Thurs., April 30, 2015

As soon as work was over this afternoon I changed clothes and we headed out to Nelson W. Wolff Municipal Stadium to watch the San Antonio Missions AA minor league team take on the Frisco Rough Riders. Clear blue skies and mild temperatures made for a pleasant baseball-watching experience.

During the early part of the game, Air Force transports practiced touch-and-go landings at Lackland Air Force Base. We had a front-row seat (well, not literally).

Have you ever had ribbon fries? You get to watch them take a huge whole potato and thinly spiral slice it. Then it is deep fried. What you end up with are ultra-fresh, warm-from-the-fryer chips. You then sprinkle on toppings of your choice. I picked a couple of spicy powder toppings. Ribbon fries are scrumptious.

The Missions were winning handily when we left. Bob loves going to baseball games, says it really relaxes him. I enjoy going too, especially if it's a lovely evening.

That's it for tonight.
