When I got to Mesa, AZ, I finally got to see my sister, Barbara, after a long absence. She and Ron invited Phil and I over for dinner. We brought some ribs that we found super-cheap at Basha's.
Only no one had a basting brush - oh well, a paint brush worked fine.
Tuesday, I moved on to Yuma, where the WINs were gathering behind the VFW. Yuma has a nice flea market where I went yesterday. I thought these strollers were a riot - only in Snowbird country would they sell these fancy strollers for DOGS!
Also yesterday, Barbara, Ron and I went just across the border to Mexico to get some drugs. Whoops, I mean medicine. But what a day we picked!
Turns out it was the 100th anniversary of the start of the Mexican Revolution. This year also marks the 200th anniversary of their independence from Spain. There was a huge parade in the tiny town of Algodones. There was a queen and her court -
And a lot of kids dressed as Mexican Revolutionists with their toy guns and bandoliers.
The girls had equal opportunity to participate.
Some cute little boys even had facial hair!
Now some totally unrelated things - my friend Joey has some shelves and drawers on her dinette that I thought were really clever. Large dinettes are usually a waste of space, but she has made maximum use of hers.
And lastly, I've been working very hard on this Barbie dress for my granddaughter. (Don't look, Mara!) It was more work than I thought it would be, so I hope she likes it. If you'd like the pattern, it's here.
