A mother always loves to hear that she was right. Cruise over to Eris' blog and look at the upper right corner where there is a list of "Things the Numismatist was right about". (Oh, I love this list!) The above photo is regarding #5. Unfortunately, the photo doesn't show the entire dress. It got better the higher it went! I believe this dress (and it was rented -on purpose!) caused the only tears on her wedding day. The rest of us were in "Sunday Best". We have all laughed ever since then.
Athena and gang are in Las Vegas having the times of their lives enjoying the Nascar races and flying high above the Stratosphere. Eris is tending Cholla (who is pooping all over) and also having a rough week at school. I hope this post brings a smile to her face. Things will work out, they always do. Just ask Mr. Eris.

I miss you guys!

This morning we headed for the border. Along the way we stopped in Why to take a look at our houses. The little house pictured below was actually in fairly good shape, much better than when the aging hippies who bought it from us lived there. It was fun to see how all of our landscaping had grown. Even the block border that I put around the house was still there. I won't post a photo of the big house because it is a mess. The carport in front is filled with junk. Very sad.
I have been surprised at my emotions on this trip. We spent quite a few years working on these two houses and enjoying this area. Those years were a lot of work and involved long hours of travel but we really loved it. I miss it. Do I want to do it again? Probably not.
The little jaunt to Sonoita took only about five hours, and that included an absolutely awful lunch at what used to be our favorite restaurant. When Mike won't finish what he ordered you KNOW it is bad. Also, it was cold and rainy. Since discovering Hawaii the charm of Mexico has dwindled.
Tomorrow I will be spending the day with Lolo and that should be fun. This little town has a wonderful quilt shop and a couple of thrift stores. Also, the big weekend entertainment here is garage sales and Lolo claims to know where all of the good ones are.
We are planning on heading north Sunday morning around 4 am. which will put us home in the late afternoon or evening. My rear end hurts just thinking about it. I miss you all.
Post script: Okay, a day at the zoo with my own grandkids will be happening in the next few months. Thanks for the guilt trip, Eris.

Not sure what tomorrow will bring, although I am positive it will be loads of fun and laughs with Les and Pohai. After all, we are in a town where no one knows us. Just think of all the trouble we can get into and no one will ever find out! What happens in Mesa stays in Mesa!Just to make you all a little envious, this is what our dashboard looked like today.
