Friday, November 17. Here it is, another Friday and I haven't written a thing in my journal. It has been a busy week.
Monday - I cleaned for Karen and was wiped out when I got back home, so took a nice nap. Tom and I went to Zur Kate German restaurant for a nice dinner. The special was roast pork and it was so tender and flavorful - served with German potato salad and red cabbage. We will definitely go back there. There are actually 2 German restaurants in the same little strip mall at Main and Higley and we walked into the Bavarian Inn first, just to check it out because of some negative reviews that I had read. The reviews were right - mostly of a bad odor - and we walked in and right back out again. The right choice was made, our dinner and experience was very nice.
Tuesday - I cleaned for Jim and Shirley and spent the rest of the day around home. Arlene had to go to the hospital on Monday night due to some intestinal problems, so she and Sharla gave us their tickets to see "Kiss and Tell" at the Hale Theater.
From the Hale website: "Hugh Herbert’s 1940’s riotous romp entangles a family feud, a secret marriage, and a madcap dose of mistaken identity! Two teenage girls, Corliss Archer and Mildred Pringle, cause their respective parents much concern when they start to become interested in boys. The parent’s bickering about which girl is the worse influence causes more problems than it solves after both girls sell kisses for charity at the USO bazaar. It’s a “fresh, funny, and completely beguiling comedy about a small town Junior Miss."
Connie joined us for the great comedy production. It was lively and full of laughs. They do such a nice job on their shows.
Wednesday - no work this morning, so I slept in - until 9:00 when my phone was ringing. It was Rita with an update on Rick's condition, but actually there was no update because he refused to go for his scheduled PET scan that would show where the cancer is in his body. He was stubborn and obnoxious when Randy got there to pick him and he refused to go. Later that day, he ended up calling 911 and Randy spent 3 hours with him at the hospital and again, he got irritated and took a cab home. This is not going to have a good outcome, I just have a bad feeling about it.
We met up with some friends at the pool in the afternoon for a happy hour. Another good time of sipping and yakking.
Thursday - we took off at 9:00 with a list of RV parks to explore at Casa Grande, about 50 miles to the south of here. Of the eleven parks that we stopped at, there were 3 that we both liked and would consider for a long-term winter stay in the future. There are a few others in the Apache Junction area that we learned about and would like to see.
As we were heading back to Mesa, we got an email from our HCC President notifying us that the board meeting scheduled for 5:00 this afternoon has been pushed back to 4:00. We were both a bit irritated by this, so I tested back that I wasn't sure if we would be back in town on time. We did make it on time and even stopped at Waldo's BBQ for some take out pulled pork and brisket for dinner.
Today - we both had appointments this morning at 10:30, so we headed our separate ways. Tom picked up his trailer that was in the shop for new brakes and I was off to get a haircut. After my appointment, I went to Turnstyle and found some good bargains and then to Trader Joe's for a few things.
Tonight, we picked Pat and Roger up and went to The Dog Run in AJ for fish fry - and a very good one it was.
