January 2 - 8, 2017, AZ

Sunday, January 8.  Hmmm, guess it was another busy week.  Monday's weather was very nice, of course, the day that we all packed up and headed home.  It was a nice weekend of camping in spite of the weather and it felt good to get away for a few days and to hang out with my friends.

My brother-in-law, Hobe Peterson, passed away on Wednesday morning in Florida.  He was the husband of Mike's sister, Patty and had suffered from diabetes since he was a child and had been going downhill the last few years.  They were happy together in Ocala and I know he will be missed.

I cleaned 2 condos this week and on Thursday, the guy across the street backed into my car and put a good ding in the front driver's side corner.  I had been warned that he had hit my client's car in that spot, and sure enough, he did it again.  The damage is about $800 worth and he will either give me the money or file a claim with his insurance company.

I managed to get moving in time to go to Saturday morning coffee at the clubhouse and then stayed to take down the Christmas and New Years decorations.  I really should go more often, just get into the routine of hanging around, reading the news while drinking coffee at home.

 I got a text from Sharla early in the week to let me know that I had a ticket to the Hale Theater to see "I'm Not Dead", a Mark Twain comedy about a poor starving artist, who might sell paintings and get famous if he's dead.  So, he fakes his death and becomes his sister.  Arlene and I met up with Sharla and Tom and Betty and James for dinner at Barrio Queen before the show.  It was another good production there at the Hale.

Gorgeous sunset on Saturday.

This morning, while I was grocery shopping, Chris called to say that she had an extra ticket to see "Guys and Dolls" at the Tempe Center for the Arts and of course, I accepted the invitation.  I had never been to that theater before and it is modern and contemporary, sitting on the edge of Tempe Towne Lake.  The show was very entertaining, great seats, and good company.
