Thursday: After Alex asked me about going to the Winnipeg Folk Festival this summer, I checked out the line-up. Sunday night features Eliza Gilkyson and Mary Gauthier. Also on the bill are Iron & Wine, David Bromberg, Jimmy Lefave, Ellis Paul, and Ruthie Foster. I spent most of the morning downloading a bunch of music by those artists.
Alex and Sue went for a walk to Walgreens, where they picked up two movies for tonight.
After lunch we hopped into the van and headed out to Tortilla Flats. We went past the Flats, a couple of miles on the washboardy gravel road, and went for a short walk on a mountain trail. Stopped for ice cream in Tortilla Flats on the way back. The motorcycle accident we saw on the way in was cleaned up by the time we were heading back to Apache Junction.
Tim and I went for a 4:00pm golf game and Alex was going to have a nap. We played nine holes and then decided to go for a few extra holes before it got too dark. We golfed #10, 11, 14, 15, and 18. It was completely dark by the time we got back into our van. We got home at around 7pm. The girls were waiting impatiently, wanting to start watching movies.
We had appetizers and then barbecued pork tenderloin with twice-baked potatoes. Best of all, we had chocolate pudding with whipped-cream for dessert after watching the “Muppet Movie”. I think only Tim managed to stay awake during the second movie, “Tower Heist”. After the movie the girls and Tim headed off to bed. I read news on the computer and then went to bed too. I updated my journal in bed, just before 1:00am.
