Veteran's Day is this Friday!! A day to pay tribute to our Veterans past and present. Many of the restaurants in the area honor the Veterans by offering a free appetizer, dessert, or even a free meal.

All week Outback Steakhouse was offering Free Blooming Onions to Veterans. On Tuesday afternoon we sinned again by having the Blooming Onion but instead of ordering dinners, we decided to have the Seared Ahi Tuna appetizer. It was divine!! Thank you Outback for that treat!

On Veteran's Day, 11/11/11, Ken decided to go to TGI Friday's again this year to enjoy the buy-one-get-one-free dinner -- a repeat of Veterans Day 2010. Again we chose the Iron Steak, prepared to perfection!! Thank you TGIF for this honor!

Here I am saluting my Veteran!!


We are back at TT Wilderness Lakes for a couple of weeks. On the Pickleball courts we ran into some new friends we had met in the spring at TT Verde Valley -- members of the 10-Pack, or 8-Pack, or 6-Pack, depending on how many of the group are present at that particular stop! They have been playing a lot during the summer and it shows in their game!

Some other good friends were at Wilderness Lakes, too, as well as a couple of new players. We have so much fun playing every morning.

We got together for "Drinks and Nibbles" one afternoon. It was fun sitting around learning all the scuttlebutt about our fellow players!! HA HA.

Here's the group: Front row: Paul, Clyde, Sue, Jeannie, Pam, Bob.
Second Row: Faye and Ken; Sue's husband Jack; Clyde's husband Jeff; Jeannie's husband Don.
