MIKEY ON THE MOUNTAIN

AS I PREDICTED IN MY LAST BLOG, IT WAS A FUN FILLED THREE DAYS WITH MIKEY. SUNDAY NIGHT WE STAYED AT THE APACHE GOLD CASINO IN GLOBE, AZ. WE ALL FOUR LOST OUR ASSES. FOUR? YOU ASK? YUP, WE WERE HAPPY TO MEET MIKEY’S TRAVELING PARTNER, CHERYN.

LUNCH AT THE DRIFT INN, IN GLOBE, WHICH OPENED IN 1905, AND NOT MUCH HAS CHANGED SINCE. WE HEADED RIGHT OUT TO CHARLIE CLARKS ORCHARD WHERE THE LADIES ENJOYED THE ART FAIR, AND MIKEY AND I FOUND THE BAR AND LIVE MUSIC OUTSIDE.

TUESDAY WAS THE FOURTH OF JULY AND WE STARTED THE DAY WITH STICKY BUNS, OUT ON THE DECK WITH OUR MORNING COFFEE.

THE DAY ENDED THE SAME WAY, WITH A “GO-TO-TOWN” MEAL OUT OF THE DUTCH OVEN ON THE DECK. IN BETWEEN WE CHILLED OUT AT THE INDIAN CASINO WHERE WE TRIED TO RECOVER FROM OUR VISIT TO APACHE GOLD ON SUNDAY. MIKEY RECOVERED, REX MADE $25, AND CHERYN AND MARY DON’T WANT TO SEE THE INSIDE OF AN INDIAN CASINO FOR THE REST OF THE TRIP.

WEDNESDAY WAS A ROADTRIP TO THE METEOR CRATER AND WINSLOW, ARIZONA.

THE THEME OF THE DAY WAS “TAKE IT EASY”.

Well, I'm a standing on a corner
in Winslow, Arizona
and such a fine sight to see
It's a girl, my Lord, in a flatbed
Ford slowin' down to take a look at me
Come on, baby, don't say maybe
I gotta know if your sweet love is
gonna save me
We may lose and we may win though
we will never be here again
so open up, I'm climbin' in,
so take it easy

THE THREE DAYS WENT WAY TOO FAST AND WE RETURNED TO THE VALLEY OF THE SUN, AT 113 DEGREES, TO DROP THEM OFF AT THE AIRPORT.
