Good morning to all and a beatuful day. We've now been to Tucson, Tombstone, Phoenix and now Quartzsite. Oh what a wonderful time we are having exploring so many different places and the weather has been great. We spent one day in Tombstone, looking over the old town. In Tucson, we were in Old Town , which is really neat and just explored. We also found the quilt shops, where I buy at least a fat quarter. I've met so many nice people. We spent 8 days in Phoenix, going to3 Seattle Mariner's ball games. Met many from WA there. What a great place to spend an afternoon. While there, we put over 200 miles on our Suziki Samurai (PJ) for puddle jumper. We looked in so many places, Old Town Scottsdale at the galleries, walked the streets, spent time in all the surrounding communities. and had lunch with friends who now live there. We found so many quilts shops and bought more fat quarters. I packed a lunch and we went out to Morristown to look at the gold claims that are in the Gold Prospecting book. Ken is a member of GGPA. We didn't find the claims, but I drove on some cow paths, down a wash in 4-wheel drive and through the rattlesnake country. Heard that they are just coming out. Well,I really watched where I walked. If any of you are going to the Salt Lake City Quilt show in May, many will be there. Phoenix is a very easy place to learn your way around. We had one day of rain and the temperture dropped from the 80's to the 60's and then the rest of our days there were in the low to mid 70's. We stopped in Wickemberg yesterday and explored the town. There was a wonderful BBQ smell coming from one of the restaurants, so of course we had to stop there for lunch. It was The Hog Trough and they smoke all their meat with Pecan and Mesquite wood from 4-18 hours. The beans and coleslaw were good, but the ribs and pulled pork were the best we've ever eaten. The smoke flavor went clear through the meat. Today, is another learning day for finding things. Then on Mon., away we go to more shops or whatever. Will post more later.
