The last day of another month. The year is ¼ gone! Good thing I remembered as it is time to back up the laptop again.
Another warm day yesterday here in southern
It’s not even getting very cool at night now. Also had lots of black clouds in
the afternoon. Very black ones again today over the mountains just east of us.
20% chance of rain tonight. We even heard some far away rumbles of thunder. Arizona

It’s weird when I’m here at the table working or playing on the laptop I tend to look up to glance at Bill. For years I’ve looked up to the right and there he was in his chair. Now he’s not there! Oh that’s right his chair is now on the left.
Yesterday we met our friends for lunch in
Green Valley and it was kind of like being back in
– except for one major action. We went to a restaurant where we’ve eaten several
times. I ordered Fish and Chips, which comes with coleslaw. “Oh, we don’t have
any coleslaw. Would you like something else?” No – that’s okay. Bill ordered a Reuben sandwich. Our friend ordered a hamburger. A hamburger! “Oh, we don’t
have any buns. Would you like it on bread? We have sourdough, wheat, white or
rye.” He took it on sourdough – which was as hard as a rock when delivered.
Wife of friend ordered Buffalo Wings. 30 minutes later waitress brought three
meals. She looks at wife and says, “I dropped your wings so it will take a
minute for them to make another order.” Eventually we got all the food. The
difference between here and Mexico Mexico
they would have gone to the grocery store and bought buns and cabbage and then
fixed the meal. Except for the hard bread/bun the food was good. And the
company was wonderful. They are now in Mexico on their way home. New
In the same area is a True Value Hardware store that carries the type of hat that Bill likes. So we went in there and he picked up another new hat. His were getting kind of used. On his way to his distinctive car with his distinctive hat on his head and new one in his hand.
Then on to Safeway for groceries. Today we've stayed home - we'll be leaving here Thursday morning.
