So, after I got lost trying to find her place in Sun City, Catherine and I headed straight for Arrowhead Mall in Glendale. We weren't more than ten steps inside Dillards when we found our first purchases - shoes...comfortable sandals for me and dressy heels for Cath. I had the salesgirl pack up my old ones and I put my new ones on and wore them for the rest of the day.

Then, still in Dillards, we tried on dresses, shirts and pants and we each came away with several new items of clothig. The salespeople there were very accommodating and didn't seem to mind taking pictures of the crazy Canadians.
The not-so-fun part, of course, was having to pay for our purchases.
It wasn't all fun and chocolate though. As we drove away from the Mall we noticed that the van was making an awful noise. We finally (half a block away) realized that we had a flat rear tire. So I turned in at the nearest turn-off which was a Honda dealership on Bell Rd., just 20 minutes before they were closing. We were taken right in and the service man replaced the broken valve, told us there was no charge for it, and wished us a pleasant day. We were totally impressed with the service we got, and our van wasn't even a Honda.
I brought Cath back to my place where we showed Lloyd our purchases, told him our tale of the flat tire, and enjoyed a cool drink on the back deck.
And Catherine took a picture of me and Lloyd before we drove her back to her place.
It was a fun and tiring day. Maybe we'll get together when we're back home in Alberta.
