Busy 4 days!

The cousins are trying to catch up with the jet lag of a 17 hour difference in time. We took it easy the next day.  We spent a day visiting with mom and doing a lot of talking and exchanging information about family.  All the missing information was now coming together with a lot of holes filled in.  It has been an amazing journey of exchanges.  We did have an extra guest who always travels with Wendy.  His name is Mr. Bentley the bear.  He has his own USA Immigration badge awarded to him on a previous trip.  We had a nice lunch with mom to end our visit.

In between shopping we had a full day at the Tucson Desert Museum.  It is a wonderful view of what goes on here in our desert.  From plant life and desert dwellers it was a fun and educational day that was so worth while.  Last night we ended the full day of shopping, laughing to our bellies ached. We had cocktails and Appetizers at the Ritz Carlton out on the Ignite patio.  A beautiful view of the canyon while listening to the Story Teller talking about the spirit of the Indian. When the story was told the flutist off in the distance played the Indian flute for 1/2 hour.  It was very spiritual and really showed the soul of Arizona.DSCF2667DSCF2679At lunch with Cherry, Wendy, mom, myself and Mr. Bentley the bear.IMG_1791IMG_8881DSCF2717Showing the cousins how Indians use to sew.  The Agave plant was used for sewing. Moccasins and dresses were made by using the tip of the Agave plant as a needle. Breaking it off at the end and then peeling it down to the base.  The length of the peel becomes the thread.  Very interesting.  This Agave had died and so I didn’t mind demonstrating its purpose.  It is also used to make Tequila.DSCF2749IMG_8907IMG_8905IMG_8888DSCF2783A trip to the local Ritz Carlton for Apps and cocktails.  A story by the story teller and the flutist up in the canyon.  A nice evening.IMG_1793Story tellerIf you look up in the rocks you can spot the Flutist he is in Red.IMG_1800

    • Thanks Len, I am working on a video of Lance, Cherry and Wendy singing. I got a bit behind with the blog as it has been so busy doing things. By the time we get back it is hard to sit and do the blog. But I am working on getting caught up. Thanks for following us.

  4. Love reading about your adventures. And how wonderful to be able to fill in family information that could have become lost. Ok – so who, what is Mr. Bear? I want to see a picture please.

    • Mr. Bentley is in the photo at the lunch table with the four of us. I will get a better photo of him for the next blog. I am about to post a couple of videos that are hilarious. Thanks Susan for following. Hugs Pam
