Friday is Country Store at Mesa Spirit

Since we were in the business of going to country stores, we decided to go back over to Mesa Spirit today and see what was up this year at their swap meet.  It takes about a half an hour to get back over there, and we were quite late when we arrived.

It was almost noon, and all the folks were in line to get the day's soup.   It appeared to be a beef vegetable.  They do  hot dogs and chili dogs every week, but the soup changes from week to week.

We stayed in the park for two years, but that has been two years ago, and even though we recognized several of the folks that were our neighbors and in the clubs that we attended, we were surprised to find that not a single soul recognized us.  I directly spoke to one of the fellows that were our neighbors, and there was not a single sense of recognition.  Sad......

From the swap meet, we went out exploring a different part of town over South of Chandler where we have never spent any time.  It is a Robson development from many years ago, called Sun Lakes.  We didn't get too far on this endeavor as most of the area is gated with guards.  The actual Sun Lake area seemed kind of old.  But we were free to drive thru this development.

This afternoon we had 79 degrees reported by the airport South of our park here.  But as we were driving about, the car was reporting in the low 80s.  Actually ran the air conditioner for a while and it felt good.

Tonight we again grilled outside doing chicken breast on the BBQ.  Marinated in oil and wine with honey and Italian seasoning.  Steamed about a ton of fresh veggies to go along too.  Man were eating like kings.

  1. Sounds like a good day, to bad about the fella who didn't remember you,probably alheimer's, I have never met you but I think I would know you if I saw you.Let see, Navy Viet Nam Vet, Big Guy, yep must be Rod. Be safe out there. Sam & Donna...

  2. Mesa Spirit is where our friend Paul is staying for a month. He likes the big spots for his medium duty truck and big Teton. But he's never mentioned the swap meet. He's definitely not a shopper.

  3. Maybe it's a good sign that you remembered your neighbours while he couldn't remember you. It sure is better than the other way around. What's your name again??
