It's a new year!

My how time flies during the holiday season.  As usual we enjoyed it and the various dinners, happy hours and of course the New Year's Eve bash at the clubhouse.  Why is it that for years we slept through the festivities but now that we're retired we have to stay up past our bedtime?  We did have fun, but it's really funny when everyone at your table starts yawning around 2100!

Friends of ours, Teresa and Trent arrived January 1st for a two day stay.  They've been in the Valley for a month and we did see them a couple times prior to this.   Unfortunately we didn't get to spend a lot of time with them.  Jim has a cold and I caught it.  We really didn't want to spread it around.  Anne and Scotty stepped in and entertained them.

We pulled an Ed!  Trent said he'd never been to a hibachi restaurant.  So we decided to take them to our favorite, Hayashi.Well who knew the place closed down at 1500 on weekdays??!!  So on to plan two, Kobe just opened and we took them there.  They both enjoyed the show but I have to say the entertainment and food were not as good as Hayashi.
