This is our team photo for our men’s team in the East Bay Men’s League. One thing is certain, playing soccer in the summer, in Livermore, is hot. It’s also tough since a lot of people take trips in the summer. We had a difficult time with player availability. When we did have all of our players, we had a really good team.

Well, I went back to Texas and spent a week with my parents and friends. It was good to see everyone. Here are a few photos.

This is my friend John’s wife Dyanne and their daughter Laura on Brad’s deck.

So my friend Brad probably has one of the best decks for hanging out, drinking, and cooking out. It does help that Brad is one of the best grill cooks I’ve known. Here is John and Brad.
