Well, as you know we have spent the entire summer (since mid-April) in and out of TT Verde Valley. We have been tied up with medical appointments and RV repairs of various kinds. Our friends, Roger and Linda, were here long term as well while they waited for repairs to their motor home. The four of us played Pickleball almost every morning, went out to dinner a few times, took the drive to Schnebly Hill to watch the sunset, etc. They helped make our summer here at Verde Valley a lot more fun!!

Another couple of friends from England, Mary and her husband Ken, arrived about a week ago and have joined our Pickleball foursome! It's been a lot of fun!! Mary and Ken will be here a while longer. We are really glad about that!!

Roger and Linda's motor home is now repaired and they left this morning, heading for Las Vegas and points West!! We will surely miss them!! Last night (Thursday) we all decided to go out to Murphy's Grill for a farewell dinner for them! Here's our group around the table. Mary, Ken, Roger, Ken, Faye, and Linda.

We all agreed the food was great. You may wonder what I have in front of me. Tonight's Appetizer Special was $1 Sliders, so I ordered four for dinner. Never had a Slider before. They were delicious however I only ate two!! Center front is Linda's plate of Fish Tacos and sweet potato fries. My Ken and Mary each had the Reuben Sandwich. Roger got the Fettucini Alfredo. But we all decided the best buy of the night was the other Ken's Top Sirloin with all the trimmings!!

Anyway. We wish Happy Travels to Roger and Linda! See you down the road!!

This morning, as Roger and Linda hit the road, Ken and Mary joined Ken and me for four vigorous games of Pickleball!!

In the mornings, after Pickleball, Ken, Mary and I go to the pool for water aerobics. The pool is really refreshing after such strenuous games!! Another couple, Mike and Donna, have been joining us for water aerobics each morning, too.
