Trip Log

May 30, 2022

Sunday was a relaxing day with a nice picnic-type luncheon. A good way to spend the Memorial Day weekend. But, since Alesa is relentless at keeping us busy, we did play some pickleball. Today, we went to 'First Watch' for breakfast.

May 28, 2022

Friday was our last day of golf here in Arizona and we had a great round with Jeff and John. Elyse and Annika will be here next week and then we will be heading home. Tim, the dog, has been ailing since he was startled by a loud noise and leapt from Alesa's lap the other day.

Yesterday we all went to the "Hole-in-the-Rock" for a short hike. It is a site in Papago park and collocated with the zoo located between ASU and the Sky Harbor airport and north of the Salt River. We hiked up to and through the hole and then to a little lake in front of the zoo.

May 24, 2022

Sat with our coffee this morning in Jeff's backyard watching the wildlife in the preserve. It's the water reclamation site behind Jeff's house which is also a park. We watched jackrabbits and lots of birds to include quail, hummingbirds, ducks and roadrunners.

May 23, 2022

We commented that our room was a little warm at night so yesterday Jeff noticed that the refrigerant line to the condenser for the A/C unit for the first floor had frozen up. This is usually caused by the refrigerant being low.

Alesa, Jeff, Bailey and I golfed on Saturday at Trilogy. It was windy, the course wasn't in the best condition and we didn't golf that well but we still had a lot of fun. It was a tiring round and we had gotten up early that morning to see the Joneses off.

May 20, 2022

My nephew (and Jeff's cousin) Ron Jones and his wife Vicki have been vacationing in Utah and Arizona for the past week. They left the Grand Canyon this morning and arrived here before 1 this afternoon.

May 19, 2022

Jeff had 5 tons of landscape stones delivered and dumped on his driveway on Tuesday morning. So, we spent the day loading the wheelbarrow, dumping stones and spreading stones. It was a good workout and we cleared most of the pile in time for dinner.

May 16, 2022

Got a call Sunday morning that Bridget's car was broken into and things stolen. Jeff and Danielle went to her apartment to help her through the trauma. We were planning on a long bike ride with Jeff down the Queen Creek Wash so we went on our own.

May 14, 2022

On top of our normal activities, Alesa got her hair cut by her favorite hairdresser on Tuesday and then accompanied Danielle to her first dog training class for Fendi. Wednesday, Alesa and I biked to Fry's grocery store for a few things.
