To Phoenix and back in the same day
Well, we did our Phoenix trip. We left at about 8:45 am. We had to scrap frost off the truck window. I froze my fingers. We took our jackets with us because we didn't know about the temps down there. The traffic wasn't bad going down until we passed Carefree Highway.
We stopped at my sister, maxine's, for a hour or so. They have a little dog that tackled DR when he went in. He barked at him and said, "Don't you come in here." My sister told him to be quiet. DR sat down on the sofa and the little dog hopped up into his lap and licked his chin. Pretty soon it came over and hopped up into my chair and wiggled until I moved over and it had a little snooze. Then, it was down and back over to DR and than down to chase a cat. That is one hyper little dog. It only has one eye. When my brother-in-law needed surgery my sister bribed him into it with the promise of a little dog if he did well. So, they put his name on a list at the humane society for a little dog. Because he is handicapped and in a wheelchair his name went on a special list. The humane society called and said they had a little dog that the dog catcher had picked up after a dog fight. It had taken on a bigger dog for a piece of garbage from a dumpster and came out on the losing end. They had to wait until it came through the surgery and recovered before they could go get it. They call him Charlie.
They also have several cats that she rescued and has spayed at the humane society. One is the largest cat I've seen. They call it Bubba. We left and went over to the Desert Sky Mall where we were to meet our friends for lunch. That mall has gone down hill. We didn't spend much time there. We got to the Red Lobster early but so did our friends. We had a good lunch and sat on their patio for a couple of hours. We left about Three and took the 101 freeway over to Bell Road and stopped at Arrowhead Mall to go to Trader Joes. We quickly spent a few dollars. I bought a lavender plant with lots of buds and two purplish pink hyacinths. Plus fish, cheese, nuts, dried fruit and salads for dinner or supper as we call it. We headed home on the 101 freeway onto the Interstate 17 headed north. Bumper to bumper for an hour. We got home about 5:30. DR loaded the truck in case he wants to go to the flea market tomorrow. He started a fire but it hasn't warmed up too much here yet.
I've started a new quilting project and need to go to WalMart maybe after work tomorrow and get some embroidery thread and another piece of plain material. Not white, maybe a pale green or tan. I'll have to look before I decide. The backing is a green with zoo animals on it. Oh, well! I'd better go and open the salads for dinner/supper. It was nice and warm in Phoenix but only 40F when we got home. Glad to be here. I hate coming back up that mountain. Dooley

I'm so glad you had a good day.So glad you made it home safe. I bet that little dog is a cutie.I'm sure he is spoiled.When you finish the quilt be sure to take lots of pictures so we can see.
I'm glad you made your trip down and back. It sounds like you had a good day. The trip down doesn't seem bad for me but I don't like the drive up there. I don't know how many more trips I will be making, esp. by myself. Wannabe
Sounds like a great day, Dooley.
Charlie is a very lucky, if hyper, little dog to have been adopted by your sister and brother in law Dooley.
Glad y'all had a safe trip Dooley. We have a very large rescue cat named Bubba also. We raised him on a bottle from the age of 2 weeks. The feral mom deserted the litter of 3.
Sounds like you had a nice enjoyable trip and visit with your sister and your friends. Nice to get away but always good to get back home. I'd like to go to a Trader Joe's sometime if I ever get to an area that has one. I've heard a lot about them, but we don't have any around here.
