Many of our friends here in Arizona have already headed for home. Everyone is hosting Happy Hours. The Canadians are trying to empty their liquor cabinets and the people in park models are cleaning out their freezers and fridges. Lucky for us we have a few more weeks before we go home as we have a few bottles to empty before we cross the border.
We have also enjoyed farewell dinners with many of our friends. We are always eager to try a new restaurant and during the past couple weeks we have gone to Mexican, Italian and Thai restaurants. The meals have been delicious and the evenings full of laughter. We are so fortunate to have made so many wonderful new friends and we look forward to seeing them next year!!
One of the "must do" things on my list this year was to go to the Organ Stop Pizza. We finally went for supper one evening before David and Ellen left. I am not sure what the rest of the group was expecting but I was very surprised when we arrived. The Wurlitzer theatre organ is the focal point of the two story restaurant. Seating consists of long tables and benches and you must order your pizza and beverages at separate counters. The organ has nearly 6000 pipes and is the largest Wurlitzer theatre organ in the world. We enjoyed listening to the wide variety of songs including "Hockey night in Canada" and we joined the rest of the Canadian visitors by standing for playing of O Canada.
