Mar 3, 2018 - Saturday, Phoenix AZ

I have been lax on the updated because on Tuesday I needed to take Candy to the local hospital. She developed a numbness on the left side of her mouth and her speech was slurred. We got to the ER and they rushed her in because they thought that she was having a stroke. Thank God she wasn’t but they wanted to run test to find out what was causing this issue, which was a good idea. She was moved from ER to the ICU unit so the tests could be performed and they could watch her closely. They done a MRI of her brain and found a small bleed in the...

Mar 1, 2018 - I'm back!

Hey everyone, I thought that I had better make a short entry to let everyone know that we are alive and well in Phoenix, Arizona. It's just that not much has happened since we arrived. Of course we have spent time with our family which has been fun for us but not very exciting for all of you. We had a nice visit from Rick's sister. She flew in from Seattle just before Christmas which was a wonderful treat. But that's about it. Originally Karen's knee surgery was scheduled for January 15 but was rescheduled for February 5th. So as of today...

Feb 26, 2018 - Monday, Phoenix

We decided that today would be our trail ride day. We contacted Diamond Back Adventures which are the people we talked with in Tombstone. They knew about my condition and said there would be not issue with me getting on and off the mule. We met Penny and Tieh, the wranglers, out at one of the parks at the trail head, as it is called out here. It was a beautiful day with the sun shining and temperature around 70 degrees. The breeze was chilly but other than that it was prefect. We planned on a 2 hour ride but Tieh contacted us and said we...

Feb 23, 2018 - Friday, Phoenix AZ

Our first day in the Phoenix area. We needed to take one of the window shades over to a dealer for the shades because it appears the spring broke because it will not retract. Thought since we were out we would take our phones to the local Apple store to get new batteries. Wouldn’t you know it but they don’t have the battery, it will take 2 to 4 weeks to get them in so we will wait till we get home. The Apple store was located in a huge mall and was it busy. We were surprised how many malls are in the area and they all are busy. With over 4...

Feb 22, 2018 - Thursday, Phoenix AZ

We took our time leaving because we only had 85 miles to drive to the next campground in Phoenix. We drove thru Phoenix. Just to remind me why I dislike big cities, too much traffic. We made it to Phoenix Metro RV Park which is a little north of downtown. When we got here I remembered that we had been here before. We were at this same park February 20th to February 23rd 2015 before we attended the Good Sam Rally at Phoenix Speedway. It is a nice park with 310 sites and a lot of people here for the winter. Time to set around and make plans...

Jan 31, 2018 - Phoenix

We made side trip to Phoenix for the day. I went to a guitar store and picked up a ukulele as an early birthday present. It is fun to practice in the truck when Mike is a captive audience when we drive somewhere. I am sure he loves that! OK, maybe not so much. We also went to a birding spot that I have heard about for a long time but never stopped at. Gilbert Water Ranch. It is a park that has several ponds in it, and trails that go all around them. You could walk up to six miles. I did not do that much but did wander around for an hour or...

Oct 9, 2017 - Hon-Dah to Phoenix

Hi everyone, just wanted to get this blog post up and let you know that we are in Phoenix now. We arrived on October 2 at Phoenix Metro RV Park. We were here last year. Since it is convenient to the kids and the Physical Therapy location we decided it would work for another year! Since we arrived we have had dinner the first night with Jeff and Nina, had Michele here for dinner one night, lunch with family from Alaska on Saturday and a barbeque at Michele’s yesterday (Sunday). It’s so nice to be back with family. I will be having the left...

Aug 31, 2017 - On to Phoenix

Had breakfast in the train dining car about 8am - the usual AMTRAK "continental" breakfast. Picturesque landscape for several hours as the train traveled alongside Lake Erie. Finally arrived in Chicago at 1.30pm (due at 9.45am) which was too late to connect with my flight to Phoenix, so was able to make calls to South West Airlines and Arizona Shuttles to arrange later bookings. Walked to the Chicago Metro station, caught the train to the airport. Flew out of Chicago at4.20pm and arrived in Phoenix at 6.30pm. Had dinner in the terminal...
