Tuesday morning we picked up my sister and headed out to the bread store. That’s where we were headed when we got our WARNING.
A couple of years ago we found the Alpine Valley bread outlet store at Country Club and Southern in Mesa. They have the best sunflower loaf I’ve ever eaten. And the best thing, it’s only $.50 a loaf.

Our buddy Paul is going to Australia and New Zealand for a couple of months and is leaving his rig and truck (MDT) in Mesa. The truck needs to be run occasionally so Jim had to learn how to start it. After the lesson, the three of us headed to Dianna’s for a fantastic ham dinner.
After dinner we decided to check out Rustler’s Rooste. Supposed to have good country music and we though we could do a little dancing. Wrong.
This guy greeted us as we walked up to the door.
The band and dance floor are down on the first level where you have to order food to sit down there. The bar area is on the second level, far away from the music. Very strange set up. The band sounded pretty good when we walked up to the railing.
They do have a slide from the second floor down to the dance floor and yes my dear hubby had to try it out. (notice all the children)
We sat in the bar and had one drink and then left. We also checked out the menu and it’s pretty pricey. Not sure we’ll be back.

Not sure why there’s a nutcracker here but a good photo op.
When we got home we checked the weather. Oh no!! On Thursday they are showing wind gusts up to 50 mph in Quartzsite with lots of blowing dust. We do not move in that kind of weather so our trip to Q is being put off until Friday. Guess that means we get to relax on Thursday because everything is done.
Also, the temperatures are going down, down, down. Lows in the 20’s during the next five or so days while we’re in Q. Now isn’t that fun. But we’ll be with great friends and that will make up for it.
