We were very social last week--meals out with friends three times.
Tuesday we met friends from Colorado, Larry and Betty, for lunch at Kneaders Bakery.
We have known them for nearly 50 years. They have visited Arizona during the winter months for a short time over the past few years. This year, they rented a park model at Val Vista Resort for a month. We had to postpone our lunch once because we were both sick, but we finally made it just two days before they were set to leave the Phoenix area.
Saturday morning we joined Bob and Marcia for breakfast at their resort, Gold Canyon, which is right next to ours. The twice-monthly breakfasts support the Gold Canyon softball team. We joined them there once last year, too. They are also friends from Colorado, but only since the late 1990s.
In between those two visits, we had lunch in Scottsdale with Bob from church. Sorry, no photos. We had a great meal at the Capital Grill.
Spring and flowering cactus plants are beginning to show up here. I have taken a couple of pictures. There will be more in the coming weeks, I'm sure.
