Writing Prompts

RV Show and Lunch in Tucson

It’s a beautiful Saturday morning here at Picacho Peak and it’s time to attempt Linda G Hill’s SoCS prompt for today: Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “mat/met/mitt/mot/mutt.” Choose one or use them all, any way you’d like in your post. Have fun! 

So I had an idea of what today was going to be like but Dave wanted to know if I’d like to go to the RV show in Tucson at the Pima County Fairgrounds. That’s the same place they are doing the Escapees Escapade this year…on the very day we leave! Grrr. I still have not met any fellow Escapees members yet!

So we got our showers, ate a quick breakfast, fed the mutts, and walked out the door. An hour later we were walking into the RV show, which was small, btw, and looked at a variety of new and used RVs of all kinds. We decided that we definitely will not be stepping down from a Class A, this is the only way to travel in our opinion. However, we cannot afford the price tags on new models, so our focus will be on another used model, but an upgrade from ours. But that’s still a dream right now.

The bar area at La Parilla Suiza.

After the show, my tummy was rumbling, so we went into Tucson in search of a bite and I wanted a margarita. We found a place called La Parrilla Suiza Ina which claimed to serve authentic Mexican food. I had to tell the bartender how to make a sangria swirl, but other than that, it was a tasty lunch with a decent atmosphere. I had flautas with charro beans and rice. Most of the time, I never touch the beans and rice, but theirs was muy delicioso! I ate until I was full then took my time savoring my margarita. I told the camarero I was a cerdo and needed more servilletas but he waved off the mot and brought them to me. I made such a mess, he should have brought me a mat to set my plate on. It was hot, but not enough to need an oven mitt to handle it. Dave had enchiladas and tea. He does not drink and drive unless we are five minutes from home, which is never the case anymore.

What a great start to the birthday weekend without it even being about my birthday. I need to fit some more walks in, because I left my watch on the nightstand on the charger and didn’t get my steps recorded. Pshaw! I also heard from Josh and Chris, just one more son to go. He will probably hit me up tomorrow. He’s like me, he does birthday things on peoples actual birthday, lol! Josh has a new job and has been at it for a couple of weeks. Chris is finally doing fun things away from work to relieve the stress from his difficult job. So good news all around!

Saturdays are free days here, so I’m off to be wild and free outside the house for a bit! Have a great weekend everyone!
