1/26–1/30/14 A Luncheon, A Play, A Street Fair

(Arizona City, AZ)

We have been very busy! 

Bob is always finding something around here to do and playing golf.

I enjoyed time with friends from the park for our January Ladies Luncheon.  Thirty eight ladies from our park gathered for a fine meal, interesting conversation and a ton of laughs.

We went back to Chris’ Diner because its close to the park and quite of the few ladies are committed to Helping Hands which is an activity in our park and it was taking place that afternoon.  Long time readers will recognize this as the group that sews chemo caps for women who are going through chemotherapy treatment.  That is just one of the many wonderful things they do.



I have some friends that do really, really strange things.  That’s all I’m going to say, you figure it out.

Bob and I and half of Quail Run went to the Casa Grande Street Fair.  We had the perfect day for it, sunny and warm.

A staple at this street fair is the car show.  Here’s a few that really liked. 

Everybody loves a 57 Chevy.

This is one of my all time favorite cars,,,a 64 Chevy Impala and this one was very nicely restored.

You could never NOT find your truck in the parking lot if it was one of these!

We made our way into the main part of the fair and one of the first booths we stopped at was selling BBQ mats. 

We listened to the fellow talk about these pieces of black material and were intrigued.  Bob loved the idea of not having to  clean the grill and I loved the idea of shrimp not falling through the grill grates ever again.
So of course we bought a pair.  They have a 5 year warranty, clean up with a wet paper towel, the food they were cooking looked good, so we went for it  Twenty bucks for two of them.  We’re looking forward to using them.

Four friends and I went out to lunch and then to a play called 39 Steps.  It was billed as Hitchcock meets Hilarity.  Eh, not so much,,,,but lunch was good!
