Last Wednesday I ended up getting a emergency root canal, since then, for some reason, I keep getting migraines.
I haven't had a migraine in years, lots of years. I've had 3 since last week. It has been horrible and almost ruined my 4th of July.
I feel like my head is on a hair trigger and I don't like it.
We headed up to the foothills to hang out with Rob's friend Marty and all his family.
The Amplo family compound is perfect for parties. They have a view of the city from the driveway, an acre of land that butts up against the Catalina Mt's, a pool, BBQ grill and sidewalk chalk.
Yes, chalk. I'll get to it later
The 4th in Tucson was a bit muted this year. Most fireworks were banned and several venues cancelled their firework celebrations. To top it off we got one heck of a storm here on the east side
that knocked down trees and ripped off roofs.
The only fireworks allowed in the city were smoke bombs and sparklers.
It was an old fashioned fourth and the kids loved it.
We showed up shortly before the storm hit and we brought along some macaroni salad and Rob's near famous ribs.
I love Rob's ribs, I was really hoping to have a couple left over to bring home but there was nothing left, but we had some great grilled corn and for dessert Marty's brother made some awesome chocolate dipped cream puffs.
We had great conversation and a great time.
