One of my personal mottos or mantras is “people are more important than things”. So our rig is a little dusty and the laundry piled up a bit, but we’ve been having a great time with friends and making memories for a lifetime. Going out to lunch with friends or meeting folks for happy hour is more important than polishing the cabinets or writing a blog post. So be it.
We met Angela and Kenny at Waldo’s BBQ for lunch one day.
It’s a quirky place with “interesting” décor.
This pretty piece is anchored to the ceiling.
Wow, it certainly lived up the Yelp rating. The other three had the brisket or pulled pork sandwiches, but I got the super sampler platter with ribs, brisket, pulled beef and pulled pork (yes, I took most of it home).
Here at Mesa Regal they have a monthly manager’s happy hour where the beer flows for 25 cents a glass. Boy does that bring out the troops.
We also revisited the Hall of Flame Fire Museum in Phoenix. We originally went there, I think, in December 2007. I’ve just spent the last hour going through past blog posts trying to find out when we went there originally and I can’t find anything. I know we went there but can’t find out when….another good reason to write down your activities in an actual calendar so you can go back and check out things….I do that now.
This is a wonderful fire museum. One of the top in the country…another great one is Oklahoma Firefighters Museum in Oklahoma City.
Jim found the badge from Alamosa Fire Department on one of the many panels.
We’ve enjoyed several happy hours with neighbors. Finally having a social life and meeting folks just when we are about to leave….dang!!!
I’ll finish up with our activities tomorrow. But till then, remember you are loved.
