It doesn't matter what your relationship status is at the moment, everyone can celebrate love.
Today is also our best pal Bob's birthday !!
The guys had a plan to go touring today, while the ladies wanted to hit an indoor flea market.
The prison was in operation from 1876 until 1909.
It is a very interesting part of history and we learned a lot of facts.
There were a total of 3069 prisoners housed here over the years.
Part of that number were 29 female prisoners.
There were six people to a cell, with a small bucket for a latrine.
Not a place I would like to stay for sure !!
After our tour, we headed to the La Fonda Restaurant, which was Bob's choice as he is the Birthday boy.
The gals arrived shortly after us, and brightened up our table considerably.
We all get along so well together, that soon we were toasting and laughing at the days events.
This restaurant receives great reviews, and you can now add our six votes.
After lunch, we met at Bob and Janet's for happy hour.
We all enjoyed cold beverages, and Bob was very generous in sharing some chocolate covered strawberries he received as a gift.
We all had great fun watching Teresa "move in" to her new purse she bought today.
She is a great sport, and took all the kidding in stride. In fact, she dished out a few jabs herself.
Now for the emotional part.
Ed and Marilyn are heading back to Phoenix in the morning, and hinted to the fact that they might not be coming to Zion and Bryce next month.
This means we might not see them again until next winter.
They have become very close to us, and we hated to let them go, but we assured ourselves we will meet up again.
Yep, it is a reality of this lifestyle, that you will meet wonderful people, then have to move on down the road.
But, as witness to the tears in Teresa's eyes, knowing that reality doesn't make it any easier at the time.
