We continued to wait at Tucson Lazy Days. I finally sent a message to a Tiffin Rep at Lazy Days Tampa to ask what needed to be done to break the log jam. That was the answer, within 30 minutes we had the authorizations needed. However parts for some of the fixes were not readily available. We said ENOUGH!!! do what you can and ship the parts to Tampa! We are headed that way to visit Carol’s brother and we can get in a couple of days early and if the parts are there and if they actually communicate and set up the schedule, we should be in and out in a day and on to Fort Desoto. Like I really believe it is going to happen, yeah sure!
While waiting, we got together with Marjorie and Larry Aleamoni. She and I went to #1 School and then Monroe High together some years ago. We became reacquainted at the reunion in 2010 and decided to see if we could get the four of us together for a day. We met at Good Egg for lunch along with their son Aran and then went on to have a lovely day together and finished with dinner at Shlomo and Vito, how’s that for a mix? It was fine Deli. As we walked around their house Carol spotted a faded, discolored family reunion picture and offered to scan it and prepare a reconstruction of what it might have looked like 40 years ago. She used to do a lot of that work so it was fun for her to do a nice restoration.
We shopped. This is a rarity for us, I seldom shop, I buy. Carol seldom shops because very few stores carry clothes that will fit her. Who wears a Petite 0? She found stores that carry clothes that fit! She shopped and she bought. Thank you Margie for the guidance.
We decided that we would stay through Wednesday night and leave regardless of the need for more work. the campground was filling with attendees at a rally we might have joined had we known we were going to be there. But by the time it became clear there was no room and the rally would overlap the beginning of Pesach. Carol found out that the National Touring Company for Wicked would open on Wednesday night. We got tickets, way back but good seats nonetheless. It has been a long time since we have attended a big Broadway Musical. It was a lot of fun. The performances were wonderful and the set and staging were positively mind blowing. I know, where have we been? this show has been around and this is the fourth National Touring Company. We loved it! We also had a very nice dinner at Casa Vicente, we both had a selection of Tapas and the timing was perfect for the show.
Wednesday Afternoon before the show we came back to see where the coach would be setup for the night. There was no longer any room in the campground, not even in the overflow areas. Katrina promised us that we would be given a spot behind a service bay with water and electric and although not ideal it would work fine for us. We are not permitted to drive our coach in the service area so we waited for a driver. The driver was Kat and she is the manager of the parking in the service area. When she learned that we were just staying for the night and wanted to leave on our own schedule in the morning, she put our coach in the line up with the for sale coaches with water and electric. She said, “if security asks any questions just tell them Kat put us there.” There were no questions and we returned from Wicked to our cozy home in line with many coaches that were going to be open to the public for sale the next day. We determined to be gone before they opened the sales floor.
We were, and we are now happily settled into Saguaro SKP Coop in Benson, just 45 minutes east of Lazy Days and happy to be clear of the mobs. The coyotes are sounding in the distance so it must be time to save and post for the night. Next post I will try to remember to tell where we are going and when, as if we know.
