(Jan) It’s time to say good-bye to the Foothills and our favorite gal, Chuck’s mom Joanne. Chuck’s parents came to Yuma in the 80’s and bought property in the Foothills in the early 90’s. We’ve sure enjoyed spending time with Joanne during the winter months. This week we shared lasagna & pizza dinners, lots of short visits when we stopped by on our bicycles and also, a card game or two.
We’ve had a good time with friends this week, too. We’ve enjoyed Happy hours & visits with Larry and Mary Ann, our lot neighbors on 53rd Street, Sunday lunch at Parrish’s with Carl & Joey Christiansen and dinner and Pegs & Jokers with Jim & Diane Fisher Baker. We were honored to be Jim & Diane’s first dinner guest’s in their new house on Bonnie Street. On Wednesday, Jan joined a group of Boomers at the Main Street Theatre to see ‘Lincoln Lawyer’. Wednesdays are seniors day with $4.00 admission and free popcorn. A great deal and the movie was really a good one.
The weather has been perfect for our last week in the Foothills; lows in the 50’s, highs in the upper 70’s. Biking 12-20 miles has been great! Whether we’re stopping at garage sales or seeing the sights in the neighborhoods it’s been lots of fun and really good exercise for us. Chuck has stopped and taken lots of pictures so I’ll post an album of some of the sights around the area soon.
Today we are in the SKP Park in Casa Grande on our way to Lost Dutchman State Park east of Apache Junction. Steve & Pam Ritchie are hosting a Spring Boomerang there with lots of hiking, geocaching and, of course, eating!
