Biscuit wants to know?

But daddy, where are we going to today?  Can I go along?  I can!!! Yea!!!!

So with that we were off to the Phoenix Quilt,Craft & Sewing Festival !

This is over in the downtown area of Phoenix.  It is held every year at the Arizona State Fair grounds.  It is in the main exhibition hall, and Loyce really likes to go to it.  But she is out of luck to have me tag along inside the building.  I just mostly sit in the car and read, and Biscuit was lucky enough to get to stay with me.

But we didn’t just sit around, we decided to go to a Sam’s Club up on Indian School Road back over toward Scottsdale.  At first I couldn’t find it, and then after using the GPS to look it up as a point of interest, I found out why we couldn’t find it!

The building was completely empty, and had a for rent sign on the wall.  This building was built specifically as a Sam’s Club, and is quite recognizable even empty, so I can’t help but wonder what will become of it.

Well then, now where are we going to find that Sam’s Club?  So I began using the GPS in earnest.  There was one up North in Glendale, so perhaps we have time to go up there.  This time I followed the green line on the screen, since I had never been off the interstate in that neighborhood.
After about 30 minutes, we were up there, and low and behold,  What Gives Here?  Another completely vacant building that used to be a viable Sam’s Club.  This time I was becoming a tad perturbed. 

By that time we needed to get back to the center of town, as Loyce was finishing up at the fairgrounds.  Best show she’s been too all winter! As she didn’t come right out when we reached the appointed time.  We didn’t have any appointments to be late for, so it didn’t matter.

It took us almost an hour to get back out here to East Mesa, and that was on the Freeway.  By then we were beginning to see the evening drive traffic, and we were glad to be back home.

Once back here, I went over to Wal Mart looking for a prescription that had been called in much earlier in the morning.  After waiting in line to go to the window, they had never heard of it.  Calling the Dr’s office, the lady said we called it in!  No you didn’t, yes we did!  See where that was going!

I rode back over on the Motorscooter after about an hour had passed, to allow them time to get it filled
again, for the first time!  Are we having fun yet?

  1. So you never did find any open Sam's Clubs? Strange that all the ones around there are closed up. At least you got an afternoon of exploring out of it!! :)

  2. That's why we went back to Walgreen's, either they didn't have it ready when they said they would or nobody had called the doctor, and guess what nobody cared, or if they did have it ready a good sign was that you had to wait in line while the one girl waited on 10 people. Now with the disounts Walgreens has it's juct as cheap for generics if you get a 3 month supply.Be safe out there, Sam & Donna.

  3. God bless Biscuit! He is so cute.

  4. With a face like that, how could you ever not take Biscuit with you. Getting prescriptions while on the road sure seems to be a major hassle with so many folks.

    Strange about the Sam's stores. I've never been in one yet so maybe next time I see one I'll have to check it out.

  5. Nope never did find an open Sam's Club! But Loyce says they are around, and I just don't know about them.
