Escapees Friends

Casa Grande, Arizona

I had a message yesterday from Julie and Don Klein asking if we were at the Escapees park in town.  No we aren't, but I had a full plate yesterday and today was even fuller. Just no time to go out and visit them. 

In the morning Carlena and Harry came over.  I tried to set up a blog template for Carlena.  I know it was simple, because I did mine.  No worries, I e-mailed Sharon Del Rosario and she said she'd help during the Escapade.  Aren't friends wonderful?   

We ended up just gabbing about the great adventure to Alaska.  When they leave Casa Grande on Friday, they are on their way.  They'll head west directly after the Escapade and we'll meet up with them before we cross into Canada.  

On the other hand, we have to return to Casa Grande for the annual doctor visits before we can head out.  

After they left, we drove over to Leslie and WC Ernst's new home.  Our visit was way over due.  As many of you know, Leslie has been battling cancer.  She's a fighter and has such a positive attitude.  Our intention was to take her some flowers and a pie since it was Pi day and just visit was a short time.  Yes, Fry's made it.  

When we walked in the door, Jodie Scales was there.  A short time later, in walked Julie and Don Klein.  
I could have sworn I took a picture of Leslie as she was the star of the party.  I have to say they have a lovely home with a parking place for their motorhome.

This morning I had an appointment to get my eyes checked again.  Good news, I don't have to go back until October.  

Our timing worked out that we could attend the last luncheon of the winter season for the Escapees Chapter 45 in Apache Junction.  

I received a text from Rick and Kathy Rousseau saying they were coming to Casa Grande.  Well darn, not again, we'll miss them.  Good thing they'll be at the Escapade.  

We plan to pull out early for the Escapade in the morning. Bill and I want to arrive before the heat gets too bad.  

It promises to be a very busy ten days.  

Here's some photos from today's luncheon.  Click on them to make them larger.

Mickie D's was a packed house and we were all treated to pumpkin pie.

  1. Glad everything is going well and looking forward to seeing you again this weekend.
    Be Safe and Enjoy!

    It's about time.

  2. No one can ever say that you let any grass grown under your feet. Enjoy your next ten days. Should be some good times ahead.

    1. We are really looking forward to it. We have a very good parking site #16.
