Even Granny  gave us some words of advise on old age, not as golden as we are led to believe.

Having a good time with the Temples, we have driven around, spent time at the new place and last night we went to the Arizona Opry. It was a dinner show, had a very good roast beef dinner and the show was so good , singing, humour and hundreds of different instruments, this is a family show here in Mesa for over 30 years, a very talented bunch of people. There are many different shows and we will for sure be returning time and time again, come visit and we will take you. To day we are off to Tortilla flats and to enjoy the scenic route drive around  the superstition mountains.

Jan 31 - Feb 3

On Monday we drove down into Mexico to visit friends and check out the progress on the new daycare building. Wayne and Claire run a daycare for the children  just out of Ensenada, this is a very poor area and free christian care for the children is one wonderful way to help. They pick the kids up, wash them and their clothes fed them breakfast and lunch and teach them and provide a safe place to play, they have babies and kids up to school age, many of these little ones would be left home alone while their Moms went to work in the fields and work camps. One example is a three year old was left in the home caring for his brother only a few months old, many moms do this! they are torn between leaving their babies alone while they work or staying home with them and watching their babies starve. Thank God for people like the Wagner's and all who support them. The area were the new daycare centre will be in  up in the centre of the little villages where most of the children come from it will be much larger and then so many will not be turned away, the Mexican government is also trying to get the Wagner's to take in orphans, it is very exciting to watch the progress. The drive down was beautiful the scenery along the coastline is amazing and Norm took me out to the la bofadora  but most of the shops were closed and the tide was out so even the blow hole was not working LOL he will have to take me back next month when we return for our board meeting.
