Today was another nice sunny day, still a bit windy but not as bad as yesterday. John wanted to buy a wand to clean out the hot water tank so we went out to get that and a few groceries. He found the wand at the Mom & Pop store, they used to be in the Arizona market but when the rent increased this year they decided to rent a spot in the open lot next door to the market. Anyways their prices are good and they had what John wanted.

Next was Wal Mart to pick up a few groceries and John also got a pair of pants and a few t-shirts so my short shopping list cost almost $100 – lol! John doesn’t buy a lot of clothes so I never complain when he decides to buy some, now he needs to find a couple of shirts. From there we stopped at Love’s truck spot and he picked up a thingamjiggy for the radio antenna (can you tell I don’t have a clue about how these things are mounted?).

Our friends Mike & Margie called us tonight and they are enjoying their Florida holiday and the weather has been good. Mike has to be back to work on the 26th so they still have a couple of weeks left so hopefully the good weather will continue.

While at Wal Mart John bough the old James Bond movie From Russia With Love so we decided to watch it – oh, oh, when he went to put the DVD in the player there was the DVD the Long, Long Trailer which Steve & Brenda had lent us, we had given them back an empty case! Will have to return it tomorrow with apologies.

We have always enjoyed the English comedy Keeping Up Appearances (it was one of my mothers favourites also) and it is on the PBS channel at 8 p.m. Saturdays so we try to catch that if we can as it is always good for a few laughs. We have even seen a couple that we hadn’t seen before.

And so ends another great gift of a day in the sunny south and we look forward to another good day tomorrow.
