Congratulations to friends Josh and Wendy on their marriage today. I wish I could have been there, but vacation was calling. Tomorrow will be the last day with my aunt, Shirley, and cousin, John, whom we don’t see enough. Hopefully it won’t be so many years before next time.

From the sound of things, we missed quite the balloon festival, but I did enjoy an excellent steak here at the resort along with another Kilt Lifter and a Dogfish Head 90 Minute IPA. If you find yourself needing a quiet getaway, check out Cave Creek if it’s not too warm.
