Jan 03 – 06 – We received an E-Mail on Sunday evening from our long-time friends Wayne and Nancy, letting us know they were stopping by TT Palm Springs for a few days to see us!!! What A Surprise!! Wayne and Nancy have a place in Happy Trails in Arizona so we never expected to see them here!!

Wayne and Nancy were among the first people we ever played Pickleball with. When we met them in TT Rancho Oso in April 2002 we had just learned about this great game. We heard the sound of Pickleball being played down on the courts and went down and introduced ourselves. Little did we know we had just met a couple of real Pickleball enthusiasts who just took us under their wing and became friends for life. Thank you so much Wayne and Nancy!! We consider that a very lucky day when we met you!!

This time, when we got together with them, there was some reminiscing and Pickleball of course!

Later in the week we went to the Cinemark Dollar Movie (turned out to be $2 except on Monday and Tuesday) to see Unstoppable. What a riveting movie!! We were all exhausted when it ended and felt like we ourselves had stopped the train!!

Then we took them to one of our favorite places to eat – Mariscos Mr. Cora’s Mexican Seafood House in Cathedral City. Everything is Mexican – everything is seafood. We had their lunch special of three fish/shrimp tacos and beverage for only $5.99. It was so good!!
On the drive home we passed the Elephant Bar and decided to go there for Happy Hour on Thursday night before they left early Friday morning.

It this a good Omen?? We followed this hot air balloon as it lifted off from behind these buildings.
At the Elephant Bar.

On the way, Nancy mentioned that Barb had told her to be sure to get the Senior Card – 20% off!! Here Nancy and I show off our Senior Cards. Problem: they don’t apply to Happy Hour!!

We all ordered something different from the Happy Hour menu and shared our selection. Everything was fabulous!!

Nachos. Not on the menu but available on request.

Fried Calamari.

The highlight of the evening - Quick Seared Tuna with Soy and Wasabi.

Here we are having a farewell drink with Wayne and Nancy!

Thank you so much Wayne and Nancy for stopping. It was so much fun being with you again!!
