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.
