Enjoying Phoenix

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,
Greg

When anyone, even Uncle Ted, suggests you go to eat at Hooters, your natural response should be, "You know, I don't really like Hooters, is there an Appleby's/Chili's/another place?"

I believe the only time I ever was at Hooters was with Greg. We used the coupon on the back of the T-birds ticket stub. And I recall it was his idea to go. Hmmmm...

Sun! Shhhhh! Well, I've learned the only posts that get comments are ones that mention "fun" or "hooters" : )
