Pt. 5 Uncle Ted (My Father's brother) and Eve are putting me up in their guest room, which is very comfortable. Got up early-ish on Monday, and went for a little jog with Ted and Eve's dog Roxy. There was perfect jogging weather in the morning, 70 and sunny! Their home is in a retirement community, and they have a series of man-made lakes with jogging trails. Roxy and I came back, cleaned up, then Ted, Eve and I went to their clubhouse for breakfast. Then, Ted showed me around town, told me about his local business, then we went to a Native American museum in Tempe. We went to Hooters for lunch in downtown Phoenix (it was his idea :) We came back to the house, lounged, and had a nice bar-b-que dinner. Ted made a fire in the back yard after dinner, and the 3 of us relaxed, chatted and enjoyed the fire.
Same routine this morning: Got up, went jogging, cleaned up, headed out for a tour and business with Ted. When we got back, Ted took me and Roxy out on his 4x4 quad in the nearby desert. It was a blast! We'll be heading out soon for dinner. I'll be packing up and hitting the road for Dallas tomorrow morning.
That's all for now. Until the next post,
