|We took some of our visitors ( Cal, Rena and Margaret) to the Grand Canyon on Friday. The weather was awesome, as was the view. Long day though. We left Phoenix around 0630 and got back at suppertime. The trip was definitely worthwhile. Jeanne and I will likely revisit before we head north. Last week we all went to the horse races at Paradise Turf, which is only about ten minutes away. Once again, the weather was excellent, high 80's. We all tried our luck but all ended up in the red for the day. We have been able to golf a number of times in the last week. There are some nice courses in Phoenix, but many are quite pricey. We all went to Luke AFB for a round last week and enjoyed it very much. Going back again this Wednesday. Baseball game on Tuesday, Hockey on Thursday. No life like it!!
