End of the Week

Here we are on Friday again. Dave left on Wednesday, after a whirlwind 10 days of touring, hikes, good eats, morning walks, and afternoon swims. Actually, not counting travel days, we really had just 9 days together, with 2 of them ending in performances of the play and parties afterward.

Here's a list of some of the things that we did: Sonora Desert Museum, drove and hiked in Saguaro East, hiked Ventana Canyon, hiked Blackett's Ridge, drove to the top of Mt. Lemmon, watched a sunset over the Pantano Wash, rooted for the Colorado Rockies at a Spring Training baseball game, went on a photo shoot to the San Xavier Mission, visited Poisoned Pen Bookstore in Phoenix, went to Cabela's in Phoenix, visited the Hall of Flame firefighting museum in Phoenix, went shopping and eating in Tubac and Tumacacori, toured the Titan Missile Museum, and drank wine and sang along with "I just don't look good naked anymore" at the Michigan Party.

Nearly everyone who met Dave loved him, and the ones who didn't, didn't understand him. ;) Seriously, we had a really fine time, and everyone liked Dave.

Now that my deck is finished, I'm ready to stain it. John and I drove over to Home Depot and picked out stain. They didn't have it in stock, though, so I have to return there tomorrow morning to get it. I'll stain it this weekend.

Today I went for a swim. The day was warm, but breezy enough to make it feel just perfect. Several of my friends were over there, and it was fun, as always.

We had a good meeting of our Foto Fun club yesterday. A gentleman from the community came to critique our club members' photos and we all enjoyed this. Here are my photos that he critiqued. I have improved them, based upon his comments:
