Chandler, Arizona ... Hacienda Solano Resort ... Day 10 ... can you believe this? Guess I'm having too much fun ... nah, just catching up with chores .... you know, get the oil changed on the truck, two weeks of laundry, visiting with friends, get the hair cut and etc.

Before I forget it, the pictures of our (Marilyn and me) visit with Doris Walenta in Tucson are now posted in the last day, April 7th, in case you are following along with this saga.

Continuing on ... when I arrived here in Chandler (Phoenix metro area) I found Bill Gangel in a nursing home recuperating from breaking a vertebra. Bill's wife is Charlene (Char) and we have been friends since 6th grade. How'z that for longevity? They live in Sun Lakes nearby. Another old school chum is JoAnn Tierney, who also winters here in Sun Lakes. The three of us are part of a group of nine who belong to the Round Robin, a newsy letter that we have been circulating UNBROKEN since 1948!

Here's Char, Jo and me relaxing before going to dinner hosted by the Tierneys.

And the Tierneys ... JoAnn and Bernie.

And their lovely home in Sun Lakes. They live in Denver in the summer months. That's Char and Jo out front.

Last Sunday I found the Life Force Chapter of ASD (American Society of Dowsers) and caught a shot of Mary Marie Satterlee and Clay Smith.

Being an 18-year member of ASD, founder of the Digital Dowers (a cyber chapter) and former Trustee, it is so enjoyable to attend the meetings of other chapters and meet up with long time friends. Clay has a new i-River MP-3 recorder that I immediately spotted and it looks like my next toy, hehe. Clay followed me home to oogle my satellite and other toys ... a kindred spirit.

The featured speaker for the day was Serge Martel, a modern American Indian Shaman who is shown here with his L-rods testing energy and auras.

And, of course, they end their day with a potluck that filled the spirit and the belly.

Today Char reports that Bill is doing so well that he might come home on Monday. I will capture his picture before leaving the area so all of you interested in Bill's progress can see for yourself.

My project for today was to hook up a new DVD player to my cupboard full of electronics ... and, oh, dear ... not my forte`. Somehow I managed to do IT! All because the DVD of "What the Bleep Do We Know" arrived in my mail from home ... and I can hardly wait to see it again, and again, and again.

I am soooo excited about that movie that I am intending to sign up for the Scottsdale (Phoenix) Prophet's Conference entitled "What the Bleep" in October. Found an RV park near the resort where the conference will take place and intend to run up there tomorrow to take a look. I am believing my good fortune!

Thought for today:

"You have to strive every minute to get rid of the life
that you have planned in order to have the life that's
waiting to be yours. Move, move, move...."
