Saturday 1-18 Bake Sale and Dancing

Having fun

We didn't have a get together this morning because J-Five was having a garage and bake sale. Instead we went to Kripsy Kreme and bought a few doughnuts. Larry had read that Krispy Kreme was now making mini donuts with the calorie count of 90. When we got to Krispy Kreme the sign was on so we got a free donut. We looked at the mini donuts and found that they were $1.00 a piece and the regular size donut was $1.19. We passed on the mini donuts and bought two maple glazed donuts and two of the regular donuts. On top of that we received a free donut. Today was our first Krispy Kreme donut since we arrived in the Valley.

While we're in the Valley we normally go to the two major flea markets, Mercadome and Don Wes. Today after breakfast we went to Don Wes. We walked around and walked through vendors for about an hour. We stopped by the vendor that sells Western shirts and looked at the shirts. We were looking for two shirts that matched and had short sleeves. We didn't find what we wanted. We had a very nice time walking around Don Wes. 

When we got back at the Minnie I went to the club house, where the J-Five had its bake sale, They had two six foot long tables full of goodies. I bought a mini banana bread and a plate full of peanut butter Rice Krispy treats. Instead of lunch we snacked on these items.

Then I worked my Solitaire Event: World Tour (30 games). I did 19 games before we went to our afternoon dance.

On Saturday afternoons Randy Dougherty has two dances, C2 and C1. For C1 We had 18 couples which was four and a half squares. Randy put us in weird positions, the C2 dancers that stayed for the C1 dance were also having problems. We had a super afternoon dancing to Randy and with friends.

By the time we got home it was time for dinner. After dinner I walked around for 45 minutes to get in some of my steps. 

When I got finished Larry was waiting for me. He asked if I wanted to go to Joe Saltel's Saturday Ice Cream Social Plus Dance. The dance started at 7:00 with rounds and 7:30 to 9:30 was the actual dance with one round in between tips. Joe had 39 couples. He was one couple shy of having 10 squares. They had 10 couples doing rounds. After the second tip Klondike Bars and Fudgesicles were served. Ron Woolcock did the cuing for the round dancers. Joe did an outstanding job of calling and making the dance fun. Betty did a great job of taking in the money and serving the ice cream. We had a fun time dancing plus to Joe.

When I got home I finished up the World Tour Solitaire game and did my daily challenge. We had an outstanding day.
