We decided to attend church Saturday in Green Valley, AZ and went to the 4pm mass. Green Valley is a large retirement town south of Tucson with many people who came to Tucson for the winter and decided to stay there.
After church we went over to Manuel's Mexican restaurant and there were about 20-25 people waiting outside to be seated for dinner. I don't mind waiting a few minutes, but Manuel's is a smallish restaurant and we thought it would be a long wait so we went elsewhere.
We wound up at Argenziano's in Corona de Tucson and managed to get a table very fast. Our waitress was very efficient and we didn't have to wait long for our meals of chicken Parmesan and lasagna. As usual the dinners were very good and quite large. Now we have enough leftovers for a dinner later this week.
On the way back we were driving down I-19 when we noticed something peculiar in the sky. It looked like a red box and it wasn't moving. I thought it might be a tall sign but when an airplane flew under it I knew it wasn't a sign. We were quite perplexed and couldn't figure out what it was. Maybe an UFO??? Naw, it couldn't be that.
When we got back to the motor home and turned on the tv the mystery was solved. There was a 10 acre fire on the top of Mt. Lemmon and the flames were hundreds of feet high. WOW. The firefighters couldn't get up there and had to wait until morning to get a handle on the fire. We had high winds and that contributed to the blaze. It looks like the fire is under control and I'm sure the people in Summerhaven on the top of the mountain are happy about that.
We were at least 40 miles from the fire on the interstate and it was visible. Quite a sight to see and thankful that the fire was in an area with no houses.
Guess we will have to wait a while longer to see an UFO. That was our day, how was yours?
