Wickenburg, AZ

Jeane and I took off for Wickenburg about 10am leaving Mike and Steve to do more painting. Our first stop was the local Starbucks--both Mike and Steve feel the same about "foofoo coffee"--it is a total waste of money. Jeane and I both feel the same--it is a life necessity at times. About ten years ago a friend and I opened a small store in Big Timber, MT which sold among other things such as women's clothing and great books, wonderful coffee and I became addicted to mochas and lattes. Jeane bought my half of the store about 8 years ago and just recently retired leaving our original partner to go her way with two new partners. I don't have a latte every day or even every week but when I have the chance, I sure enjoy one!

Then it was on to Wickenburg, a small, busy western town about 60 miles from Phoenix. Our first stop was the museum where I thought the annual Cowgirl Up art exhibit was going on--wrong--we were three weeks early. Michael and I so enjoyed that exhibit last year, all female artist of spectacular work. We browsed in the art gallery and then browsed in the museum gift store. Lunch at Anita's, a great Mexican restaurant, then more shop browsing before we turned the truck back toward Scottsdale.

Michael enjoyed another day of learning about painting and did a couple loads of laundry for me at Steve and Jeane's, too.

The equestrian facility where we are camped is getting busy--there is a large horse event this weekend of hunter/jumper horses and riders.

Another busy day being retired!
