Our family spent a nice day along the Riverwalk in San Antonio yesterday. One thing we didn’t expect to see when we returned to street level?

Oh, I wish I were an Oscar Mayer wiener . . . .

iPhone Photos Friday, Skeeters Style

Last year I wrote several blog posts about watching our community’s then-new minor league baseball team, the Sugar Land Skeeters. I’ll never forget seeing history being made when seven-time Cy Young Award-winner Roger Clemens pitched to his son Koby. All in all, it was a terrific experience.

The Mister and I have been back enjoying Skeeters’ games this sophomore season. It’s been great rooting for a team that wins many more games than they lose (unlike our poor, pitiful Houston Astros). They even made the playoffs as the Atlantic League Freedom Division’s first-half champions!

Know what’s even better than all of that?

Ahhhhh!

Ahhhhh!

We’re sitting in the comfy seats! We’ve moved from last year’s right-field seats to the more-exclusive (and pricier) Diamond Deck. That’s where our motley crew of six (which includes our pal Eric, who spearheaded the season-ticket idea) sits around a table above the field boxes behind home plate. We’re always in the shade, and the chairs are cushy.

Are mosquitos green?

Even Swatson, who is one of the team’s mascots, comes over to visit with us (or squeak at us, which is the noise he makes). It’s a delightful way to watch a baseball game.

Well, except for one minor detail.

It’s obvious who sponsors our area.

Pretty creepy

Distinctive Life Funeral Homes sponsors the Diamond Deck. Maybe it’s just me, but that’s not the fun, family-oriented, youthful kind of sign I want near me. Especially since I turn 60 in a couple weeks and the Mister 63 in late September.

Should we be reminded of our mortality at a baseball game? Absolutely not!

Looks like an uncomfortable way to eat a nut.

I saw this squirrel hanging on this tree by just his back feet during my walk this morning.

Poser!

Poser!

Looks like he enjoys stretching out his meal (when he’s not staring down iPhone 5 photographers)!

Guess who expertly drew the smiley face in the fogged-up glass door?

Wondering who expertly drew the smiley face on the fogged-up glass door? Guilty!

Happy Friday! Guess where I’m eating lunch today!!

This unusual sign appeared new the entrance to our community.

This unusual sign appeared near the entrance to our master-planned community.

Thanks for the warning, but we didn’t see any.

Sidebar: I know I should be outraged that bored kids decided to tamper with the “REDUCED SPEED AHEAD” sign, but I have to admit that it makes me laugh every time I go past it.
