Crack it Like it’s Hot

Posted by on March 11, 2019

Last week was quiet week personally but we were quite busy with PTB stuff…we’re almost mid-way to this months sales goal…and we’re not even half way through the month!  Woohoo!  Now lets just hope we keep up that momentum.

Almost there

Michael continued working on his basement project (he’s got three now…so this will be an on-going project for a while.  He’s still work on the front basement and has the new wall framed in, his air compressed secured in place, a switch in place so he can turn the compressor on and off and of course all the wiring bundled nicely.  He’s hoping to have this completed before we leave her on Friday…I’m not so hopeful.  :-/

The movie this week was ‘The Kid’.  We went thinking it was a movie about Billy the Kid.  It was, to a degree but was more so about a ‘kid’ named Rio, who witnesses an encounter between Billy and his arch rival Pat Garrett.  I have no idea if the movie is based on true events or not…but I enjoyed it a lot.

Eric about to hit a homer!

We also went to another Brewers game in Phoenix on Wednesday and they did not disappoint.  The played the Diamondbacks and ended up pulling off a win of 5/4!  It was a fun game to watch with Eric Thames knocking one WAY out of the field.  We have just one more game to go to (this Thursday) and I bought a new shirt just for the occasion!

SO thrilled to be wearing a bib…but I needed it! LOL

On the way home we stopped at Joe’s Crab Shack for some seafood since it was Ash Wednesday.  Michael ordered fish and chips but I went ‘all in’ and ordered one of their steam pots…oh my…never had one before…but I will again!

Delicious! MY DIL, Amanda, is gonna go to a Joe’s with me at some point…she just is finding that out as she read this!

It came with snow crab lets, Dungeness crab legs, shrimp, sausage (saved for later), red potatoes and corn on the cob.  Oh yeah….and of course the pre-requisite BIB!  So, so very good.  I will definitely be reordering the next time we’re at a Joe’s…which isn’t very often.  (twice in 34 years of marriage!)

Sunday morning we went up to the clubhouse for brunch again (have to sign up and pay in advance) and were surprised with an even big assortment of foods to choose from:  fried eggs, pancakes, potatoes, biscuits, gravy, scrambled eggs, sausage, ham, etc.

We sat with a couple who had their 6-year-old grand-daughter with them and a father/daughter (80/60?) duo.  One couple was from Wyoming…the other from Minnesota and we all agreed that the cold here in Arizona is a different kind of cold as it seems to penetrate deeper down.  Yeah…I know my northern friends and family will scoff at that idea…but it’s true…honest!  LOL

We’ve actually had some beautiful weather lately…lows in the 40s and 50s which makes for great sleeping conditions and highs in the mid 70s…gorgeous.  Soon we’ll be leaving Arizona (around 3/26 or so) and be making a trek east and north to visit the warehouse, Mike’s mom and of course our babies!  So we’re going to enjoy the warmth while we can…cuz I don’t think it’s gonna be so nice once we start traveling.  🙁



We want to hear from you...whatcha got to say??
