Day 12 JEST
We spent time with JC and Laverne at the pool, having a drink, reading our books, you know , vacation kind of stuff. The evening at the Dixie Stampede was interesting. We ate a southern style meal of a whole roasted chicken (per person), corn on the cob, half of a baked potato, cheese biscuits and an apple turnover for dessert. While you are trying to eat all this food, you are treated to an entertaining western show consisting of trick horse riders, audience participation contests, wagon races and several North/South competitions. It was fun and we all enjoyed it, plus we took doggy bags home. Food isn't incredibly expensive here, neither is the gas (paid $1.85). $150,000 will get you a 2 BR 2 BA on the side/edge of a mountain. Spent the rest of the evening sitting by the pool and having drinks. Nice way to end the day.
