Scavenger Sketches and Oklahoma City Baseball Photos

I managed a few sketches for Scavenger Hunt 178. They are in the small sketchbook with a Micron 03 pen. Freehand of course.

Numbers, 3, 4 and 5 - Gene's body parts, heh.

Number 6, place you've been. Oklahoma City at the Bourbon Street Cafe. Dungeons across the canal was not open, thankfully. It was so loud last year that it drowned out the jazz from our spot.

Number 7, outdoor chair. The Bourbon Street Cafe from the other side of the canal.

It was another sad day for the Longhorns. They lost to Texas Tech. I guess having Brandon Loy out with an injury just has the whole team out of kilter or off kilter?? Maybe it is let down after all the winning and the fact that they don't need to win this tournament to continue on the road to the College World Series. The other teams need the wins desperately and they are always anxious to win over Texas. It makes their whole year to beat the Longhorns. Guess that is the way it goes. Read Joanna's Longhorn Baseball Page for the run down.

Our day was great! Lou (Bag Blog) and Toby came up yesterday to go to the games with us and took us to dinner! Their son and family came, too. The granddaughters are so precious .... and full of spunk. We enjoyed the afternoon and visiting. We met via our blogs and I swear Lou and I are related. We do many things alike and like the same things. We can't talk fast enough to get in all our stories. They were rooting for Tech but that is OK, too. I rooted for them some when we lived in Lubbock, right? We watched part of the second game between Missouri and the Texas Aggies. (The Aggies won and will play in the championship on Sunday) Maybe we will see Lou and Toby again this summer in Angel Fire. I forgot to get a photo of us, but you can check this one from last year when we met.

Here are some photos from the day.

Some ducks on the canal.

The canal and boat.

The Bourbon Street Cafe.

The front of the stadium and a taxi. :)

Warming up the Longhorn catchers.

The cheap seats, pay for parking only! Both Texas and Oklahoma fans!

Preparation of the field which has real grass and dirt.

All over. Texas plays the Texas Aggies tomorrow before going back to Austin. The Regionals will be there next weekend. Opponents announced after all the conference play offs this weekend. Hook-em Horns!!

Love the cafe sketch... those little bistro chairs are just so inviting!

Teresa, they are! We will go there tomorrow after the game at 12:30 p.m. Who knows when we will be back! :)

I had a great time, although my allergies started giving me fits. It is hard not to cheer for TT or
A&M - just a family thang. I do hope we see you in the mountains this summer.

Hi, Bag Blog, it was fun. You have a neat family and cheering for TT or A&M is OK by me. See you in the summer!
