We woke up early March 10th ready for another beautiful Arizona day.

Well, maybe not here, its like 35 degrees, lightning and did I say darn near freezing. We thought that Thousand Trails would be opening the pool today, and we would be resting our areas on the pool deck while thinking about everyone at waddling around in the rain. It is our guess, that when our friends and family back in duck country read this article they will gleefully shout “Yes Virginia there is a God!” and he is a just one too.

Ever hear “When the cats away, the mice will play”? Well, this cat just caught himself a mouse!

Don’t you just love those stacked dryers, which one do you put your money into? Why can’t I use the one with the paper taped over the card reader? I wanted that one!

It sure is fun to sit around and watch Mom work all day.

1.5 hours later we are back home with clean laundry. (Note learned the hard way: The laundry facilities at Verde Valley Thousand Trails resort take cards that you pay for up front, and apply money to. The cards are not reliable, we just lost  $7.00 the card says error, and there is no proof we put the money on the card. We are out the $7.00 and another $2.00 to buy another card. We had $50 on the card so it is a good thing we

We decide to go to Metro Center Mall, Athena needed a purse, and shoes. I never did figure out what Sarah wanted. When we go there Athena and Sarah went to the shoe store. Sarah accidentally jettisoned her phone there. Holly and I looked to see what was in all the stores. We found empty stores with cars and motorcycles in them.

They used the left over retail space a built a car museum out of the first floor of the mall. I was put off by the fact that the cars are late model sedan that we rode around as kids, and I owned as a teen. It is just wrong to find my car in a museum!

Metro Center Mall, is about 40 vacant. The mall is across the street from the Castles and Coaster Amusement park. There should be a huge food court here, but everything except a couple  of small vendors are boarded shut. Yet there are hundreds of teens wondering the mall on Saturday nights. We wondered what happened to this mall. It is huge; but soooo gone.

After some research we figured it out!

When they arrested the Musician at the music store, I think everyone got scared and left. 

The security staff arrest people because they are creepy! Everyone is creepy in one way or another so now the mall is empty.

Watch as they start arresting the creepy ones at the mall.

Or watch the movie now

Since we could not find food in the mall, we gave up on visiting the Castles and Coasters park. While shooting this coaster, Sarah noticed her phone was missing.  This theme park  referred to by some reviewers as Six Flags in the Bronx. I do have to admit, the crowed with their free use of language and liberal dress, did not impress us as being the cream of the crop. (Only in milk is what floats to the top a good thing.) We learned that if we set a phone down and walk away from it in any of our gated campgrounds, it would we gone before it hit. We lost three of three phones this way. Holly and Athena were nice to Sarah and went back in the mall and to the store she lost it in. The clerk handed to them with a big smile and told them a person had found it on the floor and turned it in.  We were again reminded, You can not, judge a book by its cover!

Well, we were still very hungry and having the phone back in hand, it was time to search for food.  We decided not to follow this guy, he can’t spell automobile, and by the looks of his truck he can’t drive either.  Who ever heard of Tamaulipas anyway! Where does one find a good buffet around here? Buffets are the only thing that will work when you’re so hungry you wont get on a roller coaster.
