Blogging for bloggings sake

All bloggers, especially of the RVing type, will tell you how hard it is to blog when you are sitting still for long periods of time.  We have decided to stay here in Casa Grande at least until the new year.  So if there isn't an announcement of a new blog, don't give up, check from time to time.  

It's hard to blog because although we are doing things, they wouldn't be interesting to my readers.  So I will give you a bit of a synopsis of the past week and a few pictures.

Doug continues to ride his bike in the desert.  Hard to believe he got a flat time from a cactus thorn.  I ride my exercise bike but not much chance of that happening.

Riding his bike on the overpass over Interstate 8
We went to the Arizona Coyotes game in Glendale (Phoenix) the other night.  We have been twice in the past.  Things have changed.  The parking is no longer free.  $15.00 to park and it's quite a ways from the door.  Food is outrageously priced.  Not that we had one, but beer is $11.00.  We shared a plate of so so nachos and a pop for a whopping $18.00.  A bag of Twizzlers was $5.50.

Waiting for the game in the nose-bleed seats

And the game, crap!  We have seen more exciting practices when son Graeme was 10 years old.  No hitting, not much passing.  At the end of the 2nd period, each team had scored one "accidental" goal.
We left.  Found out the score the following morning.  Winnipeg 4 - Arizona 1.  Oh well, we won't be doing that again.

The warm up

For those of you who don't know, Phoenix is only about an hour and a half from Casa Grande but you travel Interstate 10 to get there.  Horribly busy and dangerous.  Even at 10:00 pm there was heavy traffic.  Lots of trucks too.

Every other day we have errands to do in town.  Groceries, haircuts, computer repair (I grabbed my laptop by the screen ouch).  

A few pictures from in and around.

Good morning - Rovers' Roost
So bye for now.

The main idea behind a Blog is for your personal record of What, When and Where things happen. It may include who you did it with as well. Opening your life up for the world to see shows you are not always having fun but not scared to show it.
It is easier to write about new and exciting things in our lives but look at it this way, in today's day and age isn't everyday life an Adventure.
Be Safe and Enjoy!

It's about time.

At least from those seats you get a good overview of the action.

We have never watch a hockey game. I don't like all the pushing and shoving. Sounds like some of the soccer games are girls played in. 1-1 and then there was the overtime.

I understand what you mean about blogging. If you bother writing a blog, you want it at least interesting to others not boring. We've discovered your seats aren't as good if you actually go to games than the view in front of your own TV. So, you've extended your stay? Not sure what we'll do or where we'll be. You know how that goes too.
