|Bill, signing up for K of C at the Friday Fish Fry|
March 7 was also the start of the Friday Fish Fry tradition in observance of Lent. The Knights of Columbus hosts this annually and for $7 you can have fish fry, potato salad, cole slaw, and hush puppies at the local parish hall. Bill and I plan to complete all seven Fridays with them. He also finally signed up to be a member of the KofC chapter and will be inducted on April 28. A great find on the wall of the corridor leading to the dinner while we were in line is a latticed woodwork of the lines of Our Father.

|tennis socials at Fat Willys|
We also had the last Tennis Socials of the season on March 8 at the bar and grille inside Viewpoint, Fat Willys. Almost two hundred avid tennis players gathered for a dance with a live band. Besides having lots to eat, we danced to many rock and rolls. Finally, we started our tradition of Date Nights on the second Sunday of the month after the 4 PM Mass, March 9. Next one is April 13! This time around we went to Cheesecake Factory where I just loved my lettuce wrap and Chocolate Tower Cake!

|The Phoenix Lights on March 13, 1997|
Lastly, Bill and I were intrigued by the phenomenon that happened on March 13, 1997 so we went to see the showing of the documentary film, The Phoenix Lights, at Harkins Theatre in Scottsdale on March 16. The lights were the largest UFO sighting: a mile wide of 5 to 7 orbs in a V formation gliding very low without sound, lasting for many hours, traveling from Nevada through Arizona, and then Mexico, seen by thousands of individuals corroborating each other, and celebrated annually on March 13 in Phoenix. The author of the book of the same title and writer and producer of the documentary together with people who worked with her formed a panel at the end of the showing, answering questions from the audience, half of was composed of people who were witnesses to the event. It was very interesting for us who have adopted Phoenix as our home city!
