This is yesterdays post!!!
Had a great sleep very quiet neighbourhood…..had tea with Erika and by 9.30am I was on the road….it was a wonderful first experience for me at Couch surfing and thanks Erika you were the perfect hostess!!!!
My plan was to meet Eric on Thursday in Scottsdale but I did receive an e mail last night from Esther and Steve friends that I met last summer when I was visiting with Sara in northern BC…..and the e mail said they were in this beautiful regional park about 15 miles away from where I was going to meet Eric and they invited me for a visit if I had the time……so this morning I drove about 100 miles
I then found a Discount Tire store and had the tires on Ramona checked for wear and the service man was great he gave me an estimate of 6 new tires installed and gave me a printout of the estimate to take with me to Oregon where I shall get the tires replaced next week…after that I decided to stop and say a quick hello to another friend Terri, who is Linda and Guy`s daughter she lives in Tucson so I found her office and had a short but great visit.
I drove to the park where Esther and Steve were located…
but they were not home so I registered and pulled into the lot across from them..
You can see their place is a bit more palatial than Ramona…..about 30 minutes later they arrived home and we had a lovely hour getting caught up.
You know they are good friends when shortly after getting a dinner invitation I was out back hanging up their laundry and helping Steve with the Blue Boy!!!!!
For those of you that think a Blue Boy is cute and fun little guy let me put you straight!!!!! It is the term used for a container that hauls away certain things….I shall leave it at that….things I have to do to get a supper!!!!!
Esther prepared a lovely meal and then it was time for a real treat….Steve and I took it easy..check out my white feet!!
and watched the opening round of the Stanley Cup play offs which Vancouver beat Chicago 2 - 0
It was sure nice to see old friends again and thanks so much for a great evening…tomorrow off into the city to meet Eric and spend the day with him……stay tuned!!!
Now Thursday morning and Esther
had a lovely surprise for me this morning she had made a fresh malt loaf…how kind….I shall look forward to that with my evening tea…..it was great connecting with Esther and Steve again now off to meet Eric……
