Pickle Time

In the ongoing report on our adventures, here is my new Pickleball gear … Karen took me to get new court sneakers, and gave me a racket and a ball. I’m set. She also showed me a bit about the game … will just need to continue strengthening the knee.

We took our car back to the airport to avoid super early drop-off tomorrow morning. Just happened to get back to home territory in time for a quick stop at my favorite.

Obviously, Weight Watchers is on vacation this week !!!


We enjoyed Friday in Arizona. Tom treated Karen and I to a walk around the Mesa Mart … we saw lots of crafts, t-shirts, and artwork.

After a quick and tasty dinner of hotdogs and hamburgers, we set off for an evening adventure. This time, Tom and Karen were treating us to a cultural experience. We were on our way to ASU for the musical “Beautiful.” This is the story of Carole King’s early music career – both the story and the music were great. We thoroughly enjoyed the evening.

A beautiful sunset
Tom had already purchased our tickets online

We had fun balcony seats where we could see everything, and Lou had an aisle. Everyone enjoyed the show, especially the lady in front of us who rocked the whole night long.

Wild Horses – for Real!!!

It was another perfect day. Karen and I went out after breakfast, and it wasn’t long before we found … Wild Horses!

We parked and took a hike along the Salt River. No more horses, but we saw some feathered friends. (Click images for larger version)

PF Chang, Please

Tonight was another treat – Chinese food. We had a pleasant evening, with lots of food.

And … that was dinner. (Apologies for all the food photos – we were having fun testing out the various iPhone modes).

In-N-Out – Another Culinary Win

Lunch today was a treat and is worthy of its own post. No tacos, but we went to In-N-Out Burger. This is a favorite, but they are only located out west.

That is one burger for me, one for Karen (not two for me!)
Another view of the burgers cause they are just that good…
And the classic spotlight image – Gimme that Burger!!!

We will be back with more adventures later. As you can see, we are being entertained, and wined & dined..
