December 5 - 11, 2016, AZ

Sunday, December 11.  I guess I'm forgetting to write in my journal lately.  It's been a busy week but not a lot to write about.  

Pat and I had dinner at Waldo's BBQ on Thursday, then went to Castillo Nuevo to meet up with 
Chris and Norm and their friends to plan our New Years campout at McDowell Mountain Regional Park.  We will occupy 6 campsites and tonight we planned our New 
Years Eve dinner of appetizers, Grilled lobster tails, side dishes and dessert and who is bringing what.  We will have pizza the first night and one communal breakfast but all other meals are whatever you want to have.  It's going to be a fun experience, one that I have never done before, so I'm looking forward to it.

Arlene called me on Friday morning to see if I would like her ticket to the Hale 
Theater's production of A Christmas Carol and it took about 2 seconds to say yes.  She has been hit hard with some type of flu bug and couldn't go.  Around 2:00, her daughter, Sharla called to see if I knew anyone who would like her ticket - she was taking Arlene to urgent care and wouldn't be using her ticket.  So, Patty, joined me and we joined up with Marilyn and Karin, James and Betty, and enjoyed a wonderful production of this old classic Christmas tale.

Saturday was my community's bake sale, payment of annual dues, and election of area representatives. I had the ballots ready to go and we stuck around until about 11:00 after all votes had been cast.

After that, Connie, Jan, Cookie and I all went to an estate sale and a consignment shop, then stopped for a burrito before heading back home.  I was ready to spend some time at home and to pay some attention to my little dog who has been left home alone quite a bit lately.
