Sunday was a busy day, beginning with church at the invitation of Steve and Mary at the Casa Grande campus of the Sun Valley Church. It was a contemporary service, the music was live, and the sermon was streamed—very high tech. I really like the way the service was handled, and the message was quite appropriate. Back at Palm Creek, we had a late breakfast, and then walked to the golf course for none holes with the Hot Springs Village group.

I particularly liked the cake and ice cream served to celebrate Jolene’s birthday and the Baggett’s anniversary (they have been married on the plus side of 50 years.
