The World Series

World Series Game 1

My home team, the San Francisco Giants, won the World Series tonight, sweeping the Detroit Tigers in four games. It was a sweet victory, indeed. This was a team in every sense of the word.

Sue and I were lucky enough to go to games two and six of the NCLS, as well as game one of the World Series here in San Francisco. I took this photo with my iPhone from our seats in the View Box deck during the singing of the National Anthem just before the start of game one.

Art’s Treasure Trove

Art's Treasure Trove, Albuquerque, New MexicoArt’s Treasure Trove on Route 66 in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Across the parking lot from Art’s is Garcia’s, a Mexican food restaurant with a great neon sign that was featured on Breaking Bad. Anyway, I ate lunch at Garcia’s and had a friendly chat with the waitress, who recommended the brisket taco plate, which was very good. When I was done I decided to walk over to Art’s to see what it was. What it was was a bit of a disappointment. It’s nothing more than a garage sale these days. I bet in it’s heyday it was pretty cool, though.

As I was walking back to my car and decided to use the restroom in Garcia’s. When I was done, I headed out the door when the waitress stopped me asked if I had paid for lunch, apologizing for even insinuating that I might do such a thing. I thought for a moment, and realized she was right. Not only that, I planned to have huevos rancheros there the next morning. They would have though, “here comes that deadbeat!” She said she couldn’t believe I had walked out; I just didn’t look the type. I couldn’t believe it, either. :-) I paid up and stopped by the next morning, as planned.

So that’s my story and I’m sticking to it.
