Our friend Colleen send me a message that they were going to be setting up their Recycled Spoon booth at Frontier Town in Cave Creek this weekend and wanted to know if we wanted to meet for dinner one of the nights. We really like the drive from Eagle View to Cave Creek -- they call it the Arizona Desert Scenic Highway -- so we were glad to drive over to join them this afternoon.

Besides, I thought it would give Granddaughter Havela a chance to do some shopping and maybe find something for a birthday gift for her. It was cloudy and the closer we got to Cave Creek, the darker the clouds got. We even had some drops of rain on the windshield. It was a small fair with maybe only a dozen or so vendors. Some of them were buttoning up when we arrived due to the rain drops, but the storm blew on by and the sun came out -- and so did the vendors.

Dennis and Colleen said they had done well before we arrived (which meant they had sold enough to be in the black, having earned enough to pay the booth fee and their motel). Then Forry found a bracelet he really liked (what's with him and bracelets lately?)

 and Havela found a sterling ring that had her name on it.

Havela and I walked around the booths and she was able to find a couple of items for her Sister Kyra's birthday present. There wasn't a whole lot of booths, but I did manage to find a pair of earrings that called out to me.

Friday night in Cave Creek is wild. We went to a steak place called Harold's Cave Creek Corral for dinner. The parking lot, although huge, was pretty full. There was a fellow on horseback who was directing cars and getting them parked. Luckily for us, Colleen and Dennis had gotten there first and had a table for us. Forry had his usual hamburger and I had a 1/2 rack of spare ribs, but Havela had a 22 ounce bone-in rib steak and ate every bit of it! My granddaughter is most definitely a carnivore, but I don't know where she puts it in that tiny body of hers!
