Father’s guided tour

SATX-84

After lunch, Steven drove us around San Antonio.  Since Father Sheehan has a sweet tooth and I wanted some ice cream, we finally found a Dairy Queen before returning to the Oblate Madonna Residence on Blanco Road.

The afternoon had turned frigid, and Steven was the only one with a warm jacket; but that didn’t keep Father from asking, “Would you like a tour of the place?”

“Like, oh, my gosh!  Do you even need to ask?!” I squealed.  “Yes!  Please!

And off we went.
