Apache Junction, AZ / 56L 82H Blue Skies and Sunny
The weather here continues to be awesome here in the east valley 25 miles from Phoenix. I certainly know now why thousands of snowbirds flock here in such large concentrations. Of course the area has become home to many retirees who have opted to relocate here permanently, making this one of the fastest growing areas in the US. The only noticeable difference I have noticed from our previous two years in Florida is that the temps are cooler at night. It thought high winds would be a problem in regards to having the awning out, but that has been less of an issue than in FL. It goes without saying that Judy and I have been warmly welcomed here.
Judy and I have stayed busy this week with the park routine. We volunteered to call the “cards” for the Sunday “Card Bingo”. Judy called and I picked up each table’s ante and delivered the winnings to each game winner.
I have been encourage to play in some of the numerous shuffleboard tournaments in the area. The level of competition is higher than the local park play. The game technique is much different than Florida due to the surface of the boards. I’ll see how this works out in a week or so.
That is it for now. Thanks for stopping by
