Back from Arizona

I had a lovely time in Arizona with my daughter, Alex.  We spent 2 nights in Tucson and 2 at her home.  Unfortunately, I did not get to visit SAS fabrics as I only read the suggestion from Mary after I was in Sierra Vista. And it was closed on Labor Day when I was back in Tucson to fly home.  But looking at the website, I know I want to go there on my next visit!     SAS Fabrics

We did visit the University of Arizona Art Museum.  There were wonderful things to see.  I was taking photos for my art history class (which I just dropped today, but will take again in future) for a project we were supposed to do towards the end of the semester.

This is one of my favorites.  I curse my photography skills. The chrysanthemums on the casket are exquisite.  Also the mourners all seem so sad in different ways, the fourth one can't help but look at the coffin.  Apparently a musician has passed away. Alex and I both found it touching.

We went to the movies and saw  " The Hundred Foot Journey".  Very good, but warning: you may be  hungry when you leave the theatre.

You might want to go to Gringos Restaurant and have this.  I didn't have this after the movie, but I did my best with it the night before.

Do you see the little stack on top? Olive, pickled pepper and pickle.  There is bacon, black bean spread, lettuce, tomato, onions, and 1/2 pound of range beef inside.  I think I might have left something out.  I recommend they make a smaller version as it was yummy, but HUGE.

We actually did go out to eat after the movie.  We went to Grimaldi's Pizzeria.  It's near the university.  They are a chain from NYC, but alas, are not in California as yet.  I failed to take any photos there. But this one looks tasty.

This photo is from the Grimaldi's Coney Island website.  I'm getting    hungry again.

We also did a bit of shopping, watched Joe VS the Volcano while having homemade curry, played Yahzee and talked a bunch. 

Sad to leave, but we'll meet in Salt Lake City in October with the rest of my family. It will be the first time in 3 1/2 years we'll all be together.

My homeward flight. What do I see?

Lake Tahoe. Almost home.

Enjoy being home today if  and when you get there.
