Up early on Thursday to get a start on the first full day of the Americal Division Veterans Association. We were very much looking forward to seeing all of our friends.
I decided that I was going to wear my new sneakers…you might remember them…$4.00!!
Pretty comfortable for the first time wearing them and quite festive against the carpeting in our room.
We headed down to breakfast and found some of our friends getting ready to order.
This is our friend Rich whose research found Ralph and got him involved in the organization.
Breakfast was pretty amazing. It’s called a Pueblo Breakfast Bowl.
Eggs, tomatoes, onions, green chiles, cheese and hash browns. It was huge and filling. Very tasty though.
After breakfast, Ralph and I headed outside to get a look at the mountains!
Mountains with Tourists!
My sneakers are actually in this photo, you just can’t see them.
The crazy lobby carpet trying to upstage my sneakers. Not happening!!
Mid-afternoon, we found ourselves a little tired so we came back to the room for a rest.
One of the best parts of being involved with this organization is the lady friends I’ve made.
Lynne from St. Louis, Me and Darlene from Ft. Smith, Arkansas.
Dinner was in the hotel’s restaurant, Thibodeaux’s. First a tasty salad.
Lettuce, tomatoes, sliced almonds and dried cranberries with balsamic vinaigrette.
My main course was a delicious dish of linguine, tomatoes, spinach, Portobello mushrooms and shallots in a wine and olive oil sauce.
It was so good! I would order it again and I may do that since we’ll be eating there again while we’re here.
It’s pretty late now, it’s been a long day, my sneakers and I are ready to get a good night’s rest. Looking forward to another full day!
