AZ Opry

Apache Junction, AZ  High 71  Low 48


On Wednesday we joined Jeri, Terry, Doris (Terry’s Mom), Dianna, and Bobbie at the AZ Opry. (Most of my pictures turned out really lousy.) This place holds 500 people and they have feeding every one down to a science. They can get all the food served in 35 minutes. They offer a beef dinner on even number days and a chicken dinner on odd days. Food is pretty good but the show was really good.

They performed some Christmas music as well as their regular show. A lot of talent on that stage.

A little guitar pickin’.


Elvis is in the building.


On the road again.


How many of you remember the song – The Lion Sleeps Tonight? The lead singer of the Tokens is the lead performer at the Opry and can play all of the instruments you can see on that stage.


We had a great time and would like to go again.

We went to visit Aunt Happy today but she’s not feeling very good. She had a nose bleed that wouldn’t quit and ended up in the hospital for a couple of days. She has a pace maker and is on Plavix so they have taken her off the Plavix and hope that will control the nose bleeds. We will be taking her to her doctor on Wednesday morning. Everything is serious when you’re 99.


  1. We sure enjoyed the AZ Opry too and especially the people we were with!

    Everything IS serious at 99 and 89 and 79 and 69 and even 59.

  2. The Opry looks like it was fun.

    I hope everything goes OK with Aunt Happy. Each day is a bonus at that age but she has lived them all so well so deserves as many as she can get.

  3. Geez, how did I miss your last two posts? I haven't seen yours since Thanksgiving, but I'm so glad Jim is doing well. Being able to walk with no pain must be such a pleasure for him. Thank goodness it's over and he's on the mend. Now you two can concentrate on having fun!!! :)

  4. poor aunt Happy. I hope she gets the bleeding under control.

    The opry sounds so fun.

  6. Best wishes for Aunt Happy. That's a dicey situation.
    The pics are the best to be expected. It's not an easy subject to try and capture.

  7. Thanks for your well wishes ,We hope Jim is getting along fine, and also the doggies.Hate yo hear about Aunt Happy's troubles, that is scary as you get older. Be safe out there. Sam & Donna.....

  8. When you've lived to be 99 do you really need to be on Plavix??? Hope she feels better soon!

  9. What a fun time. Paul would love to see Willy Nelson.

    So sorry about Aunt Happy. I am sure she wasn't too happy with that nose bleed. At 99, you can never be too careful.

  10. We've heard about the Arizona Opry and would like to go there some day, but it's along way from Benson. Heck, durn near everything is a long way from Benson! Take care of Aunt Happy. She's pretty special.

  11. You certainly are brave to be seen in public with Jeri and Terry. They can get you in trouble...

  12. Looks like a fun time. Sorry to hear about aunt Happy..

  13. The Arizona Opry includes food? Jeri didn't tell us that, we may have reconsidered.

    Hugs and best wishes to Aunt Happy.
