Another Sad Story ~ Don't Drink and Drive

How many hearts were broken this past week due to a negligent drinker. Sadly this victim was hit by a drunk driver who crossed to the wrong side of the road and hit a teenager who was bicycling with two friends. The driver left the scene.

To the friends and family of Russell, our prayers are with you.

A Visit to Gilbert & Liberty Market

I took a little drive the other morning to our neighbor to the west - Gilbert Arizona.

I'd been hearing about Liberty Market and stopped in for some breakfast and coffee.

I was impressed with Liberty Market. It had a modern coffee bar feel in a relaxed atmosphere.

My breakfast was good but the coffee was better.

There was a nice crowd at about 10 am on a weekday.
No, that's not me in Paris riding a scooter through the busy streets. It's one of the bathroom stalls at Liberty Market. What a crack up. Each stall has a different theme and when you shut the door music turns on.
I love themed bathrooms. Barrio Cafe in Phoenix has some pretty cute ones.
A Graffiti stall.
A disco themed stall?

The back wall of the Vespa bathroom.
Someone has a good sense of humor. And hey, as a bonus the bathrooms were clean! What a concept.
All in all my visit to Gilbert was good and made all the better by visiting Liberty Market. We sure could use a place like this in Queen Creek / San Tan Valley. Hint, Hint.

Too Hot to Post

Yikes, this heat has made me so lazy. I haven't posted in a while. I blame it on the 100+ weather we have been having. I'm begging for more monsoon rain.

Went to Sushi Creek today for lunch. Nice and cool in there. Excellent food. Tried their special today the Roadrunner roll. Not bad. Still love the Bigfoot.
If you haven't been there, try it - you'll like it. They even have an I hate sushi menu.
