I drove 125 miles to have lunch with my Brother!!!

Here is my brother Jim and his wife Jean!!! Jim and his friend Randy drove Jim and Jean's R.V. from Chicago, Illinois to Arizona!!! So me driving 125 miles to have lunch is nothing!!!! They are here in Arizona for Jim's daughter Melissa's wedding, it was Saturday in Gray Mountain, Arizona. I did not go to the wedding for reasons I just can't explain here. Some day I may explain, but not today. It was fun hanging out with them for several hours. Actually Jean flew in last Friday night and I picked her up at the airport and she stayed the night with us, we got up at 5:30 a.m. on Saturday so I could drive her to the west side to get a ride to Flagstaff with my Aunt and Uncle(thanks Aunt Jan and Uncle Vic for going to the wedding and for understanding why I did not go) So I decided to drive up to Camp Verde and meet them at the Cliff Castle Casino for lunch and to hang out for the day!!!
YEAH!!! I Love Johnny Rockets!!! Remember I use to work at the one in Arrowhead Mall, I loved singing and dancing to entertain our guests!!!The ketchup bottle was our micro-phone!!!
Jim trying his luck on the slots!!!
Jim and his black Harley and his friend Randy and his bike. Trailering their bikes behind the R.V. so they could ride all over Arizona.
Of course we had to show Randy Montezuma Castle, Jim took him to see the Grand Canyon, Sedona, Jerome, Woods Canyon lake up on the rim, Payson, and from Camp Verde they were riding to Winslow, Arizona, isn't that a song????From the Eagles song, "Take it easy" standing on a corner in Winslow, Arizona, such a fine sight to see!!!!

It was so fun hanging out with them. I will see them in August in Chicago!!!!
Can you believe Beaver Creek actually had water in it?????It really was green and pretty there today!!!And the tempurature was 81 degrees!!!!!!

Yeah, so glad you were able to see them. Sorry we didnt come along! Being in the car that long all in one day is a little too much for us!:)

It is always so nice to see family! Sounds like you've had a good month as you have gotten to see a lot of the ones you love. So happy for you, and so glad you can spent time with them!

What fun to see your brother! I've been to the Grand Canyon, but being from FLAT Florida, it scared me something fierce! Were those buildings on the wall in the grand canyon???? Imagine getting up one morning and stepping outside. Oh, boy!
