The Date

Dave and Bev treated Phil and I to a night away, our first in nine years...and they kept Addy that time, too. We might need to get out more. We rode to Tucson in style. Riding in a convertible was a first for me. I have yet to make driving a convertible a first. Phil hogged the controls.





I decided I look pretty good in a convertible. Although, my hair was sticking to my lips quite a bit. Hairy lips don't look good on me.



Our first stop was an old mission. It wasn't amazing, but provided some good photo ops.

















Possibly a bit random, but I was interested in all the bilingual signs.



Something that was supposed to be a speciality in the area. It tasted remarkably similar to an elephant ear.


The hotel was really cool; very different from anywhere else I've stayed. I loved the little oasis of flowers in the middle, surrounded by cacti.





The next morning we decided to take a hike at a nearby National Park. The hike was more of a walk, since the paths were all paved. Round trip, we went 7.5 miles and we were both in hurtin' status when we were done. We REALLY need to get out more.

I thought it was bad thatwe have only had two nights away in the last 3 1/2 years, but now I feel bad. Good for you guys!

You're right, hairy lips are rather unatractive on women. But you look good, nonetheless. ;)
