We had a really enjoyable visit this past weekend from my oldest brother, Dennis and his wife Denise, in town for the Basic Training graduation of their son-in-law. It was nice to see everyone and it gave us a reason to eat some barbecue (catered by Grady's) and take them out to see some of the local sights.
On Sunday, we took Dennis and Denise to see some of the old standbys. Bussey's flea market was a hit with them, even though the wind picked up and the temperature dropped. Lots of good stuff to dig through, and best of all, it put us in reasonable proximity to New Braunfels which meant the obligatory trip to Buc-cees and a mandatory visit to Clear Springs Restaurant off Hiway 46.
Later, we took a quick tour of The Alamo, The Menger Hotel and of course a quick circuit along the river walk. San Antonio (and the surrounding area) is truly a destination that requires more than a few days, and I think this little taste was enough to make them contemplate return visits fairly soon.
Congratulations to A1C Jonathon Rosa who was selected as a BMT Honor Graduate and moves on to tech school training at Ft Sam today.
