Wanted to answer a couple of comment questions about Aunt Happy.
Happy is a nickname but I was in my 20’s before I found out her name is actually Norma. Her parents started calling her Happy when she was a child because she was always happy. Still is. Not much gets her down and she won’t let it stay around very long.
She doesn’t drive anymore. She decided about 7 years ago that it was time. She only drove to the store and over to Leisure World where she used to live – about three blocks, but she realized even that was too much. She gave her car to a younger friend who will now pick her up and take her someplace if she doesn’t have us to help her out.
Jim’s appointment with the Oncologist went well. Needs to go back in two months and have a cat scan. He’s also having problems with his leg and we are going to have a bunch of tests done on that. One thing after another.
On our way home after the doctor’s appointment, we stopped at the Superstition Ranch Market, my favorite store in this area. They’re prices are incredibly low, i.e. red bell peppers 4/$1.00.
I wish I had taken a picture of everything that we got for $17. Apples, pears, strawberries, grapes, lettuce, cucumbers, green onions, red and green peppers, squash and I don’t remember what else.
Our most expensive item was a watermelon for $2.40. This is the best watermelon we have had this summer.
I think the following pictures will give you an idea of why we like this place.
We had a salad last night with a stir fry. Tonight is a wonderful fruit salad. Love it.
