There were two movies playing in stadium 10 – last day playing at the theater. Projector broke and both movies cancelled. So I saw Taken 3. Boring. I am really enjoying Tucson. Surrounded by mountains. Gorgeous. Reserved tomorrow night at Desert Trails RV park. Adult park with lots of activities. I am seriously considering reserving and staying there for one month. If I stay for one month it comes to $19 a day.
Watched online a 1995 Larry King 10th Anniversary Special with Barbra Streisand. Great interview. It just shows me though, why I choose not to waste my time and energy watching the news. Absolutely everything is the same twenty years later. Just enjoy your life and don’t waste so much time on the negativity. It will be there when you get back. Lol
It’s going on midnight. I found another duplex in Barstow on Zillow tonight. I emailed my property management/realtors inquiring about it. Both units are currently rented. We’ll see how this goes. Feels right.
Sure got a lot accomplished today. I totally love small towns. Had my propane filled first. Turned off both my refrigerator and main valve – and everything seems to be working. Yea! Went to Ace Hardware. The guy there drilled a hole for my propane cover – charged me 50 cents labor. That definitely puts a smile on your face. Filled up my gas at $2.19 a gallon. Loving that so much. Went to the post office and picked up my General Delivery packages. Somehow Amazon mailed them all UPS and Federal Express and I had to pay $48 shipping! I’ll contact Amazon tomorrow. Had a nice big bowl of won ton soup at the China Dragon. Went to Bed Bath and Beyond and bought a pillow topper. Redid all of my bedding. Went to Oro Valley Planet Fitness for a nice, long Hydromassage and Massage Chair.
My favorite part of today is tonight. I went online and purchased a ticket for Buyer and Cellar at the Phoenix Theater for Sunday April 19, at 2:00pm. It is a one-man show, 95 minutes, about a fictional out-of-work actor working in Barbra Streisand’s Basement Shopping Mall – which is real.
Being Barbra’s biggest fan – I am so thrilled to be going. This play is also in Florida, New Jersey, Michigan, etc. I would love to go see all the different actors. I think it would be fascinating to compare.
This morning I signed up with the Black Card Membership at Planet Fitness. They have 900 locations that I can use. After my tour and I took a shower, used the Massage Chair; Hydromassage table; The Total Body Enhancement Red Light Therapy Booth. I noticed there is a lot of large equipment there too. I wonder what that is for. Tee hee. Then on to an afternoon movie – St. Vincent with Bill Murray. Seems like the days pass so quickly.
Dark clouds, wind and rain. I do not like this.
Today I went to the movies and saw Black or White with Kevin Costner. This morning I cut the reflectix to fit all of the windows for insulation. But I have no where to store it, so will have to let them go. I have been having a serious issue with low energy. Sure hope it’s just the weather. Except for Australia, I wonder where else it is summer right now. I should find out for next year. Though, I think I will spend next winter in Florida.
Today would have been Dad’s 90th birthday. I always thought we would have a Big Celebration.
Went to Cinemark here in Tucson and saw Selma and the 1963 Charade with Cary Grant and Audrey Hepburn. Never had seen it before. Both were really good movies. Trying reflectix to see if it can help regulate the temperature in my van.
Windy. Windy. Windy. All day long. I am staying inside. Want to stay healthy.
Left Mexico about 4:30pm last night. Edgar escorted me to the highway. Got back to Arizona just as it got dark. Spent the night in the Visitor Center parking lot. I was the only car there. Pretty isolated. About 4:00am I got up and drove to Tucson. Went to the laundromat and washed rugs, clothes and sheets. Found the main post office and then went grocery shopping at Fry’s. Went shopping at Lowe’s and then drove to the casino and found where the WINs are. Then straight to the movies and saw Birdman with Michael Keaton and Emma Stone. Nice cozy evening in my van listening to a Special on Sirius Radio with a Live Performance with 60’s British groups like the Hollies and Chad and Jeremy.
Back in Arizona. Not really enjoying Mexico this trip. Our group was planning golfing, deep sea fishing, and many activities I just was not interested in. Also, all night long we are surrounded by extremely loud music and there is no escaping it. So that was a quick trip. Think I may head to Tucson and catch up with the WINs there.
Not sure I will be able to update my blog while I am in Mexico. We are leaving in the morning. They say we will have free wifi in the office. So, maybe I can take my iPad in their. I really would like to because even though I don’t say much on my blog, I like to try and keep a small record of some of the things I do each day. Today I actually used my stove – Twice! Boiled hot dogs. Thinking of getting a 2 quart Dutch oven to make soups, stew, beans, rice etc. I am a little nervous about going to Mexico. One guy who just came back, had Montezuma’s Revenge for two weeks. Another guy said if you wanted to come back early, he wouldn’t come back alone. There are 22 of us, in 22 RVs caravanning tomorrow. This will be a memorable experience.
Getting pretty excited about traveling to Mexico. Jesus came this afternoon and signed each of us up with Mexico insurance for driving in Mexico. Also, another meeting discussing more details. This evening we had a fun “burn your own” pot luck dinner with the WINs. Always one of my favorite activities. Each day here is just gorgeous. Makes you happy whatever you are doing.
