Let's have a quick review of last week (Easter Week):

Went with Mom to American Heartline where 500+ chocolate chip cookies were baked and packed to be sent off to soldiers.  We were there from 2:30 - 4:30p and this is an impressive group of volunteers... completely organized and fairly simple... amazing!!! I had the opportunity to work with these caring folks twice.

6 dozen eggs
endless flour and chocolate chips

The Scoopers!!!!

87 lbs of cookies!!!

Sans a couple "taste" cookies... quality control!!!

All packed in bags of 8 cookies, with stickers on the bags and tied with red, white, and blue ribbons....SWEET!!!  Literally!!!

Delivered to a troop that is likely much happier!!!!

Oh.... and the kids of the Continental Elementary School (they use their cafeteria) write letters and cards from the heart to add to the boxes... each box is sent to one soldier and has 43 (or so lbs.) of cookies to share amongst their friends.

So that was our Monday.


I can not remember Tuesday except that we, of course, headed to Wisdom's Cafe for our weekly dose of AMAZING margarita's...two for one Tuesdays!!!!

In Tumacacori, AZ

Just look for the Big Chicken!!!
