Independence Day

Happy 4th of July!!!
No 4th of July would be appropriate without a picnic but when the outside temperature is 108 degrees, that picnic is held indoors.  The ballroom was a nice cool area for us today with brats, polish sausage, and LOTS of delicious side dishes and desserts.  I keep saying it over and over again, but these potluck type dinners are awesome!  We had a pretty good crowd so I took photos of a number of tables hoping you’ll find some familiar faces.
The palm tree I bragged about a few days ago is now looking pretty shaggy.  Flower blossoms have fallen making our driveway and the streets  look like a white snowstorm.  Bottom branches are dying and hanging down as the trees grow taller.  I’ll post another update when the yearly pruning starts.

Don and I went to eat at Olive Garden last night and had to laugh as we approached the restaurant.  With the sun shining directly at the entrance, you’ll notice dinner napkins wrapped around the door handles since they get too hot to touch!  Welcome to Arizona!
