The divas refusing to walk without umbrellas...

My Mom, visiting from Philippines (she is US Citizen who loves the islands too much and married recently to the Filipino Prince Charming in 2006) , decided to drive from San Jose, California to Arizona, a 12-hour drive which she has done several times during the past. Our only request was that she and her friend, Tita Josie, don't pick up some guy like Brad Pitt along the way and jump off a cliff, as in the movie, "Thelma and Louise".

Visiting the Westgate Center of Glendale, AZ

They have known each other for almost 40 years!!!

SHOPPING

At this very moment, as I am writing this, my Mom and her partner in crime (super shopping extreme) are at the mall (where else?)...in this picture, they are shopping for native Indian jewelry at the Cameron Trading Post at the intersection of 89A and 64 near the South Rim's eastern entrance.

The Grand Canyon

This picture was taken on November 2, 2008 - 2 days before the USA presidential elections...there were not so many people at the Grand Canyon - could it be an effect of the current recession?

The Grand Canyon never ceases to amaze!

The gorge in this picture leads straight down to portions of the mighty Colorado River...

The Divas looking at their pictures in laptop!

Good friends are treasures, and I am glad these ladies have been supportive of each other through all these years and still enjoy life after six decades! They also look very young, indeed!
