ZZ TOP in Tucson

For my 50th birthday, Kenton and girlfriend Tina took me to the ZZ TOP concert at the local Indian Casino here in Tucson. Friends Jeff & Traci Skinner joined us. What can I say? I'm 4 days from 50 and I can guarantee you that Billy Gibbons and Dusty Hill are OLDER than I am since I recall listening to their music when I was in high school...haha Actually, they did a great job and the concert was one of the few revival tours that I enjoyed :) THANKS kids for the ticket!!! I also admired the 3 PREVO buses that they travel in. I figured each one has his own private coach. What a way to travel!

CDA Patio Almost Done

Barb has been a busy girl while I was away. I think her hidden talent is as a landscape designer. She found the idea for the water can fountain in a magazine and has created a marvelous water feature for the back patio! The iron gate is also underway and should be installed in a few days.

Final Days in Twin Falls

Spent the past 3 weeks here in Twin Falls with my parents (Kevin's). Dad is undergoing an oral chemo treatment for his colon cancer but is doing remarkably well. Even good enough to do a quick flyover of the parade in Buhl. The flows at Shoshone Falls were running above average for this time of the year so it was nice to go down to the canyon and see them.
Heading to Tucson until Aug 4th then back to CDA. Barb has the back patio all done and I'm anxious to see it. Still working on the wrought iron gate...seems the fabricator is "busy", so Barb is headed down to his shop with her coveralls on to help him finish it. Wish Kenton was up here and it would be done by now.
