At Jim Schwobel's

Jim pointing


Shirley and I were invited to join our Texas friends Arsene, Michael, Ed, and Jim at Jim's home terrain in downtown Austin, Texas, for triples on Tuesday afternoon.  Jim has a great place very near town and the university.  As a matter of fact, he rented the home years ago when he was a student at the University of Texas.  When the opportunity later presented itself, he decided to buy the house for his primary residence.  It turned out to be a great investment, as it's probably worth six to eight times what Jim had to pay.

It's at the very end of a quiet, shady residential street, and is probably a wonderful place to play in the summer when everyone is looking for shade as a relief from the oppressive Texas heat.

Many thanks to Jim for inviting us.  We look forward to playing there again whenever the opportunity arises.  (Thanks also to Arsene Dupin for providing the above photos-- Shirley forgot her camera!) (And to Ed Priest for additional pics below.)
