Besides I was able to have a short vacation with my sister Cherry and her husband Rick (although we were both in agony over the procedures done). She was quoted $30,000 for implants in San Diego, California. I told her to check out Sani Dental who gave her five days free stay at the Hacienda. In the final analysis, although they do a lot of implants, they recommended dentures for her instead. Cherry spent only $2,500 which would have cost much much more for comparable services back in San Diego.

And I also had fun looking for some silver jewelry I needed for my daughter April’s Guthrie Castle wedding in Scotland. I could not decide between 2 sets so I bought both! Anyway, each cost only $20! For very affordable prices, we also had great combos of chili relleno, beef taco, chicken enchilada and jumbo margaritas at Paraiso, nachos and pozoles at La Tetilla, and chillaquilles at the Hacienca café. Too bad we had to leave right away to keep Bill’s scheduled colonoscopy the next day.
The other thing is that our European trip has finally been booked! We leave on May 17, arriving the following day in Oslo, Norway. Then on May 22 we go to Copenhagen, Denmark followed by Helsinki, Finland on May 24, and Stockholm Sweden on May 28. On June 1 we leave Stockholm on a 2-week cruise on the MV Explorer whose ports of call are Copenhagen, three cities in Iceland, an island off Scotland, Belfast in Ireland and then we disembark in Southampton in southern England on June 15.

After this, Bill goes home to Phoenix to resume his CASA responsibilities while I linger at my daughter April’s home in Newcastle, England. Hopefully, I will be able to visit Amsterdam, Glasgow, Dublin, Liverpool and northern England from there! Our European sojourn begins in less than 3 months and it will be 2-months for Bill and 3 months for me! We are so excited!
