we are headed to the Mesa Market Place Swap Meet! Hopefully before it gets too hot. This is just one of the many buildings at this market. I cropped this picture at the bottom because there was a man sitting on a bench with his mouth hanging open, and it just wasn’t attractive, even though I don’t know who he was.
You name it, I’m pretty sure you can find it at the Mesa Swap Meet.
Chef Doak is an “almost famous” comedy cook. After walking and shopping all morning, we enjoyed sitting and watching him in his air conditioned area. We got really excited when he said he was from Oklahoma and then he asked us where and when we said, “Norman,” well, this Stillwater native was on a roll, but I dished it right back to him. We had a lot of fun with him and he did, too.
We found a GREAT deal on new luggage for our trip to Emily’s wedding next week in Seattle. When we realized, “we have no luggage!” … the Mesa Market Place was a blessing. When you pull your “suitcase” behind your truck everywhere you go, you just don’t need luggage, but when it’s necessary to fly, luggage is a requirement for being gone a week.
By 1:30 PM, we had perspired enough and headed back to the Q with a few other items we needed. It would take a whole week to cover the Mesa Swap Meet, so we will be going back as it is less than two miles from our park! That could be dangerous, but it’s great walking exercise!
For our evening meal, Don took me to a Mexican restaurant, Los Gringos Locos, in Apache Junction and it was really good. I had the Ensalada de Julio: ample greens, grilled veggies, grilled chicken salsa for dressing mixed with just a taste of guacamole ranch. Really tasty. Sorry, no picture.
