Geezer IX - Geezer Day 6

Our last day in the geezer house – John and Greg will be leaving after lunch for the drive to Phoenix and their flight home, and Jack, Steph, Val and I will be leaving tomorrow morning.  This morning we awoke to beautiful blue skies, which was perfect as this morning was group photo time.  After everyone ate breakfast we put on our geezer t-shirts and Viking helmets and took pictures at several different spots around the outside of the house.  It’s a little tedious, but a lot of fun as we preserve our memories of this year’s geezer gathering.

Before our group photos, I took a few pictures of our house for the week.

The rear of the house.
We had a very nice back yard.
In honor of Val and my Voyage of the Viking cruise last summer, we all wore our Viking helmets.

The puzzle masters pose with their creation before it has to go back in the box.  It was a great puzzle that fit right in with the Flagstaff theme.

To soon it was time for lunch and we lingered for quite a while until it was time for Greg and John to leave.  It’s always a sad time when the first geezers leave and this year was no exception.  We said our goodbyes and watched them drive off.  It’s amazing how quiet the house seemed after they left.

After lunch we sat around the table for one last talk before it was time for John and Greg to leave.
With their Viking helmet in place, John and Greg leave for their drive to Phoenix and their flight home.
Jack and I decided to take a walk out to the railroad tracks again, but this time we went straight overland from the back of the house.  It was a nice walk through the forest and we arrived at the tracks just as a train passed by.  We decided to take the easy way back and took the road that passed by the front of the house.  This hike was less than two miles and much easier than our hike earlier this week.

Val and I have another week before we get home so we have been doing laundry today (mostly Val).  When that was finished we faced the inevitable – it was time to pack.  By the time we finished packing it was time for dinner so all the leftovers were set out and we grazed our way through as much as we could.  I didn’t think I was very hungry, but it was all so good I couldn’t help myself and ate more than I should including the last piece of “wacky cake”.

After getting the dinner things put away we sat around and talked for a while, but it was finally time for bed and we reluctantly called it a night.  Jack and Steph are going to follow old Route 66 home so they want to get an early start.  Val and I are going on to Las Vegas which isn’t too far so we will have a more leisurely morning.
