On Wednesday we headed up to Mesa to visit with my Aunt Happy. This time I did call ahead of time to make sure she was home. We had a wonderful visit. When she and my Uncle Don moved down here from Montana, they moved into Leisure World (an exclusive retirement development).
She told us at that time the entire complex was surrounded by desert and farmland. She can remember watching them pick sweet potatoes and the big frame that was used to load them into the truck. She also talked about trying to convince the men on the hospital board that they needed to build their hospital across the road from Leisure World. They thought she was crazy to want to build it out in the middle of nowhere. That hospital is now at the corner of Power and Broadway in Mesa, right in the middle of the city. She was one of the original owners of the hospital.
Not only does she remember her more distant past, but she remembers her yesterday and her morning. (Which is more than I can say for myself some days.)
Wednesday night we headed out to Superstition Skies to listen to Brant and Kerry (B & K) perform. I wrote about them when we discovered them last spring.
Met up with Jeri and Terry and Diana and Phil along with their friends, Bobbie and Bo. These guys are so good and we had a great time.
Thursday was give Scooter a bath day. Thank goodness, Jeri figured out that B & K were performing Thursday night at Filly’s. So guess where the four of us went Thursday night. One of the waitresses was having a birthday so we all got to share her birthday cake. I think she was too busy to even get a sample.
Saw this jacket on a gal at Filly’s and thought about the Good Luck Duck.
Friday was spent running errands and Jim worked on building a cabinet over the microwave. Saturday the girl’s got their nails trimmed and anal glands cleaned out. Now, how exciting is that!
That’s my roundup for now.
Got my dancin' shoes all ready.ReplyDelete
