Volleyball Team Pool Party

Today was a little cool at the pool, but it didn't stop us from playing volleyball. After the game, which is from 2-4, we had a snack/dinner party from 4-6pm.
About 30 people showed up, and the food was awesome! Thanks guys! We had a great evening, again!

Pottery Class

Well, today I decided to do something different. So, I went to a pottery class. I made a bowl, kinda like a candy dish. We will see how it turned out tomorrow. I had to go through orientation first, but now I can go in there and make all sorts of things. Be prepared, you may get homemade gifts for Christmas, hahaha!

I am even going to learn how to use the Demi Moore used in GHOST!.

Kitty Kitty

Hank and I came home from a walk and found Spanky on the Captains' chair watching TV.
He and Buddy love the Pet channel. We leave it on occasionally so they can watch the animals. Spanky even tried to touch the other cats .

Lillie and I went down to the library at the main building tonight to get a few books and we dropped by the Billiard Room on the way out. I think I got hustled.

Thanksgiving Dinner

Thanksgiving just wasn't the same without my girls and family. The table was decorated very nicely with 8 of us per table. All of the people at our table were fulltimers enjoying their winter here in Arizona, just like us. We ate turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, yams, biscuits, gravy, corn and pumpkin pie for dessert. It was strange not cooking, but even nicer not cleaning up!

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone...we miss you all!

Getting ready for the Holidays!

When Hank went home last week he retrieved our little Christmas Tree and sent it UPS to us here in Arizona. It arrived yesterday and the kids and I put up the tree today! Spanky sits in the window of the RV and now knocks the ornaments off the tree. Momma Ann gave us some more little bittie ornaments to put on the tree. OHHH also she gave me a space ball which was in my goodie bag....looks who is playing with that???

Monday Night Bingo

As you know, Bingo is a really big thing here at the park on Monday Nights. Over 100 people show up for this, and two of the pots are really big, one is $100 and the other over $200. Well, last night my husband, Hank-got a bingo and won $27. He is really getting good at these games. As you know, earlier in our travels, Hank won a set of plates,glasses and bowls in Alabama!

Today, Hank and I are going to learn Mah Jong. That should be interesting, huh?

Deal or No Deal

Tonight was Deal or No Deal! Husbands in the background, Bud on the right and Mike in the middle took part in holding briefs (instead of brief cases).

The mens' beautiful wives, Donna on the left and Pam on the right, were on the stage tonight helping Howie play Deal or No Deal. It was a fun night of pizza and dancing.

Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum

When Hank and I were driving along the road to Tucsan, a wolf came out of the desert and walk right up to the car. Isn't it amazing how an animal can live in that heat?

This gorgeous owl came flying down to get some food off this tree right in front of me. Isn't it beautiful. It can't move its eyes, but it does move his head around to watch me.

Hank and I had a wonderful drive down to Tucson to visit the Desert Museum.During our visit there, we saw beautiful birds like owls, ravens, roadrunners,hummingbirds and parrots. They also had local animals like black bears, wolves, mountain lions, deer, goats, snakes and pairie dogs.

Last night sunset!

Last night I was sitting outside and thought I would capture the beautiful sunset!
Hank will be home today and I am very excited. It has been a long 4 days without him.
I hope I remember what he looks like and don't miss picking him up.

Happy Thanksgiving

I will have a really Happy Thanksgiving Now..Ansley made me the little Turkey that I put on my little flower arrangement that is going on my table. Thank you so much for remembering Grammie! It is so pretty! You did such a great job Ansley.

Domino's night

Last night Hank and I decided to play domino's, guess who won? Hank! I just knew it! I told you guys he beats me all the time, well, he beat up on other people last night. We had a good time except near the end around 10pm, Hank started feeling sick.
By the time we rode our bikes home, he had a fever, chills and muscle aches. I hope it is not the flu! He seems better this morning, but isn't up yet. That is not like Hank!
I will keep you informed.

Bingo Night

Bingo Night is a really big thing around here! I think everyone in the park attends this event. We had to purchase "dabbers." Basically, this is a big round magic marker. It was really high class with a huge board lit up with the numbers. We had to go early to mark out boards with different patterns. Anyway, we didn't win anything but it was fun. Tomorrow night, it is cocktail hour with prune juice on the menu.
Off we go later.

Hank decided to give it go at people this takes alot of talent. His first partner was Donna, believe it or not, their two daughters live in Ooltewah, Tn. Wow! Amazing huh? He really enjoyed it and will play again tomorrow.
I went bike riding around the park which is 3 1/2 miles total. We are having a great time. Later

Casa Grande...continues

The golf course is only a par three...but is very nicely kept. We have a calendar to keep our days straight, since we don't know what day or time it is!

You will have a hard time picking me out, because Hank had the camera on another woman he thought was me, . Yea right!

This is the entrance of Casa Grande. Hank and I really feel we are coming home when we enter that gate. Everyone is so friendly! As you drive into the entrance, the flowers and golf course are gorgeous green. It is like an Oasis in the desert.
