Seems like we’ve been here for days! Yesterday Lori had her massage, and I had a hydro facial. Today Lori is having a facial and I have a manicure. Who would have thought? This is the top spa in the valley, so lots of locals come here too. Later in the day, after a couple hours at the pool in the sun, we went to the mall to get Lori some tank tops. The Neiman Marcus down here has way better stuff than ours in Denver. Debbie, our salesperson who we know from previous trips, is pulling some stuff going on sale from downstairs that we’ll go see this afternoon for Lori.
Brian, my partner, was sick. Didn’t want to chance getting anything, so we skipped getting together. My friend Steve, who moved here when the gun laws in Colorado changed and he was forced to close his store, and Angie, are coming up later today and we’ll all go to dinner.
We also dropped by Mom’s favorite jewelry store to drop of one of her old tennis bracelets to be rebuilt, as they wear out and it broke between a couple of the links. We’re having them rebuild the entire bracelet as it has sentimental value to Lori. Larry who is the jeweler, still raves about how great Mom and Dad were. He really loved her. Of course, they probably spent a million dollars there over the years, so there’s that too. But that’s not why he liked her so much, it was because of who she was. A kind, caring, genuine person.
Not sure where we’ll go to dinner. The boys are fine, and Ty is doing a great job taking care of Harley and the house. We’re going to the gym this morning before the spa. so time to get going.
Oh, we were getting coffee yesterday and it turned out, the GM of the hotel was in line in front of us. We thought he was just an employee and asked where the lawn and orange groves were, mentioning we were married here 24 years ago. Later in the day, when we returned to our room, there was champagne and designer chocolates and a nice card, welcoming us back and thanking us, nice. Have to say, every employee here is so nice and polite. They’re all so polite, you can’t help but notice. I told him that which was good for him to hear. Makes a big difference. Makes you want to stay here again.
That’s it, have a great Saturday and God Bless.
