Sunday -February 17, 2008

Today was another beautiful, sunny day. Yesterday we took Dave over the movie Apocalyps Now as he has never seen it and this morning we got an e-mail from him that there were no discs in the box – oops another senior’s moment as John had put the discs in thinner plastic cases for storage and forgot when he took it over to Dave.

John wanted to go to Circuit City so we went down there and I took a tour through Bed Bath & Beyond while he was in CC then we went over to Janet & Dave’s with the movie. Dave wasn’t there so we chatted with Janet for a couple of minutes, Janet had entered Hey Yu in the Dog Show so I wanted to hear how she had done, apparently not well as she wouldn’t wear the little goggles Janet had bought for her – good for Hey Yu.

Coming home from Janet & Dave’s at night we can see lights off to the southwest so today we decided to take a drive and see what we have been looking at so we just started heading in that direction to see where we ended up. At one point we came to an intersection where you could only turn north and we found this tree with the pretty flowers and memorial stone sitting in the middle of nowhere. There was also a nice view of the mountains from there. We ended up in Somerton so that is where the lights are at night that we have been seeing, then from there we took a lot of back roads to come home – everywhere we went it was field, after field of veggies or freshly picked fields waiting to be replanted – this is where most of the winter veggies come from so you can just imagine how many thousands and thousands of acres there are planted with either veggies or orchards of orange, lemon & grapefruit trees.

When we got back I went for a walk and John went for a bike ride and this hot air balloon was just floating over the park – they are so pretty.

Beautiful Balloon

Tonight we watched 3:10 From Yuma that John had downloaded from I-Tunes, it was good but lots of violence. It is $3.99 to download a movie and you have 30 days to watch it but once you start to play it you have 24 hours before it self destructs from your computer. We don’t watch a lot of movies so if we want to this is an easy way to rent one.

And so ends another great gift of a day and we look forward to the mystery of tomorrow
