My Oregon Tradition - Jung's and Baseball

There are some things that always seem perfect in that they never fail to satisfy. Yesterday I finished my latest Dean Koontz book called Velocity and it was compelling and fast paced as all of his books have been for me. Now please understand the books Koontz writes are often based on a pretty grisly premise and not for the faint of heart or those who take their books literally and that's a caution. The other thing that always is satisfying (for me) is eating at Jung's Mongolian Grill in Eugene off of West 11th next to the Target.

The Mongolian grill features a huge circular grill where you go after picking your ingredients and sauces. The grill master then cooks for up to 8 people by constantly turning, spatulating and otherwise mixing your food on the very hot grill.

He usually puts the meats selections on the bottom and the veggies in the middle with the noodles on top.

When all the ingredients are ready he slides them onto a plate for you and you chow down to a great meal you picked out to make a unique mixture.

Well I was lucky enough to go to Jungs's because Isaac had a slow pitch softball game tonight. The evening sky was great and fall is in the air now.

There were three fields so we searched for the one Isaac was playing on tonight.

We found it and got there just in time to see Isaac playing first base, my old position. Here he is standing behind the knuckles of the batter

Again there is Isaac at the first base position. (remember you can click on the picture for a larger view)

I just love the Oregon sky in the fall - simply great.

Finally the game was over and I took one more picture.
