On Sunday, March 15th, Bill & I went to San Carlos to an Apache Pow Wow. Beautiful Costumes & very interesting. We stayed about 2 hrs. & after that the music all sounds the same - you know, the Indian drums. It was so much fun watching the little ones dance & then the costumes of the older ones.
Thursday afternoon we went to a place called San Tan Flats. Went to a Saloon/Grill & the Flat Iron Steaks were absolutely delicious!!!! You can eat inside where they serve you, or outside, where you can come in & order & then take it back outside. Then they have fire barrels (on their sides) all around & wood available to make your own fires & roast marshmallows. They have a guy who sings entertainment at 6pm on Wed., Thurs. & Sun. & then 2 different bands come in on Fri. & Sat. We had tried to go there a couple weeks ago on a Sat. night & they told us we would have a 2 hr. wait!!!! They don't take reservations either. On the weekends the entertainment doesn't start until 9, so we decided to go during the week so we can get back home earlier. Bill & I danced a couple dances & Fred danced with Phyllis a few times. The wind was blowing so hard though that we had quite a lot of dust across the roads on the way home. Just like a snow storm only dust. The trailer was really rocking in the wind when we got home. The bikes & chairs had blown over, my candles off the steps blew off during the night & broke one. Phyllis's chairs were blown all over the patio. If this was what it was like in just a wind storm, I don't think I want to go through a tornado! Just pray we can get across tornado alley on the way home in May!

Pictures from the Norwegian Krub party:
On Wed. evening, the 18th, we went to Jim & Ruby's for a Krub supper. Now if you are Norwegian, you'll know what that is. If not, well. It really was pretty good. Jim's family was here visiting from Minnesota & they always eat this when they get together. Ruby said just try it, try not to gag (like she did the first time) & then say you like it. It really wasn't that bad. It is shredded potatoes mixed with flour & then rolled into balls & boiled in cheese cloth. Then it is removed from the cheese cloth after cooking & served with bacon & bacon grease over the potatoes. Sound high in calories & cholesterol??? You bet, but what the heck. You have to try something different now & then. We had a fun time.

We've also attended 2 block parties for our street, along with the New York State party. Since we stay in NY State when we return to Hidden Valley & we no longer have a "house" in PA, they invite us to party with them. This time we just had snacks & finger food. Of course, you can really eat a lot of that too! Since we want to travel to the New England states in late summer/early fall, we got addresses from some of the friends from NY to maybe stop & see them. Two of them are up along the St. Lawrence Seaway. One was the gal that was so sick with the pancreatic problems, so would like to stop & see them.
Well, I guess that about sums up the last 3 weeks. So since I've written a book..........Until Next Time.......................The Traveling Cardinal's
