Two Jumbos with Mustard and Onions

Karen and I had hoped to go to Arizona for spring training this year, enjoy some sun, see a few baseball games, and get the autographs of some of our favourite Oakland A's. Our plan was foiled, however, by a bad transmission that chewed up our credit and ate away a little too much of our bank account. We thought that we were left with only the hope of seeing some pre-season baseball next year.

Imagine how excited we were to discover that we had one last chance to see some pre-season baseball without travelling too far or (further) breaking the bank. Once we heard that the Oakland A's were going to play their AAA affiliate, the Sacramento River Cats, right here in Sacramento at Raley Field, we couldn't pass up the chance. We bought tickets behind home-plate.

We got to our first baseball game of the season last Thursday, a little later than we wanted to. We are happy to report, though, that the inaugural hot-dogs have now been eaten.

Go A's!

Thank you Preston. It was wonderful to have you and Karen at home.

I have Deng's pictures and your dad's. What is the best way to send them?
