I Couldn't Wait Until Christmas

Casa Grande
Home Base

Yesterday Sandie and Jim Dixon came in with a beautifully wrapped gift.  With everyone arriving about the same time, Bill set it under the Christmas tree. 
Bill said, "let's wait until Christmas to open it".  I started watching TV and waited for Bill to say it's time for bed.  When he went in the bedroom, I grabbed the present and opened it up.  
What better present for someone who is into cowboy Christmas!  Bill is a Luchesse boot fan and he said these lights were done as well as the handmade boots he has.  He examined all detail on the boots.

I was going to  take a photo of the chocolates that John and Karen Knoll brought us, but I'm ashamed.  They have heard the story of how much I love the dark chocolate covered blueberries from Costco.  I've had to ask Bill to lock them in the safe and hand me one serving a night.  Well I didn't have him lock them up and I must confess I overdosed on them.  I'm too ashamed for anyone to see how many I ate in one evening.  

We did have very good news today.  Bill had his follow-up appointment with his heart doctor today regarding the tests he had in November.  He said everything looked good.  Bill had a quadruple by-pass in 2005 and he said 7 to 10 years is usually when things change.  He said as long as he didn't develop diabetes and he kept exercising, he should have no problems.  

Now if I can just get my strength back from my little health problem everything will be perfect.  

I finally got in touch with someone at the casino.  I knew they were having the Leonardo Da Vinci exhibit but I couldn't get anyone who knew the actual dates.  The exhibit starts on January 11th and I wanted this to be one of the options during the Escapees Chapter 21 Rally.  I tentatively planned on January 12th since we don't have the pavilion that day.  The best part is they will give us a $5 discount per person on the tickets as a group.  I hope everyone enjoys it as much as we did.  We saw it in Butte, Montana and I'm sure we paid a lot more to see it.  

I never realized how much trouble it would be to find beach party stuff for the rally this time of the year.  I thought since this is Arizona there would be pool stuff available.  Oh well, that is what's going to make it fun.  

Turtle Safely.......



  1. Glad you like them. The best thing is the good news about Bill. The bad part of that is the exercising thing. So not fun.

  2. Glad to hear the news about Bill's health! Those boot lights are really unusual - never saw anything like them. And yes, it's hard to find beach stuff! But the rally will be wonderful anyway, with all your prep and planning.
