Friday in Phoenix

We had a great day today. We are waiting to hear from a friend of ours about picking him up for dinner. Unfortunately we have to eat at Ruth's Chris Steakhouse. I hate it when people make me go there. :) Could be the best steak in the world.

Since I missed a post yesterday, and I don't know if I am going to have time to post tomorrow, I am writing again. I'm trying to make the pictures bigger when using BlogPress. Hope it works.

This is from the door of our hotel room looking down to the lobby. It is almost the exact same layout as the hotel we stayed at while in Sydney Australia.

This morning we went to the mall. First stop was Nordstroms. Beth bought shoes and I didn't. It was very sad. I did buy mascara. Need to keep Nordstroms in business.

Then off to Barrett-Jackson. If you aren't sure what I am talking about, check out the Speed Channel. It is on tonight, tomorrow afternoon and evening and Sunday afternoon.

When you walk in the door it is car exhibits and lots of stuff to buy. Even airplanes. Beth and I thought we should tell our parents that this is what we bought at the show.

The stage. You can't believe how big it is. The seats on the floor are reserved for people buying cars so we were far away. We could see everything but I forgot my camera and had to take pictures on my phone. No zoom.

This car is coming off the block. I think it sold for around $150,000.

Then we walked around the outer tents to see some of the cars already sold and others going on the block.

Did I mention that this is a huge event? There were thousands, many thousands of people there.

There were great story boards for some of the cars on sale.

We just returned home from dinner. Great as always. It's bed time. There hasn't been much sleep the last few nights and tomorrow is a busy day. Lots of yarn to look at.

What really neat old cars! But, I think buying the plane is a good idea. So useful. ;)

So, are you going to go see Rick, Corey, The Old Man and Chumlee of Pawn Stars fame?
