There’s No Such Thing As A Free Lunch
But a free dinner can be had for the asking. To backtrack; we did little yesterday but hang around the campsite, only making a quick trip in to MacDonald’s to post the blog entry for the 13th and to check e-mail. We left at about 9:30 this morning and headed for Phoenix, with stops at Camping World, Best Buy and Costco, before finding a multiplex theatre showing “August: Osage County”. Although it is a tough movie to watch because of the emotional intensity, it features two performances for the ages by Meryl Streep and Julia Roberts. Highly recommended. We then made our way to the Holiday Inn in Glendale, where we will be until Friday.
Oh yes, the free dinner. There is a sister hotel next door which offers free laundry, so we decided to take advantage. Turns out there was a free dinner buffet (more of a Happy Hour buffet really), but free is free, so we boldly helped ourselves. Not sure what is on the agenda for tomorrow, but will likely involve a visit to the huge outlet mall across the road and some pool time. The temperature here is in the mid-70’s Fahrenheit (22/23 Celsius?), and it will be a change having the temperature not dip below freezing, as it did last night at Camp Verde.
