I worked on pulling a couple of panels away from the wall so the plumbers could get access to the pipes that run to the showers. I was successful without doing any damage that can't be covered up with some filler and paint.
I have come up with a solution for someone to keep Frisco when I go back to San Francisco next month to help out with the Charlotte and the twins. Pat and Roger have agreed to stay at my house while I am gone - I think this will be a win-win for all of us - they can have more room to spread out (instead of their motorhome) and Frisco will be comfortable at his own home and with folks that he knows too. Thanks friends! It looks like I will be gone from November 4 - December 13.
ELS (the company that owns our community) offers a bus to various events if there are more than 5 people signed up to go to the event. Last night I went with 8 other folks from here to see the ASU Symphony Orchestra at the Gammage Auditorium in Tempe. The theater is beautiful and we had perfect seats. The show was delightful, as it was conducted by Timothy Russell who has been the Professor of Music at ASU for 21 years. They played pieces from Brahms and Tchaikovsky. What a great evening!
