Heart to Heart 540 Surprise! Surprise!

Surprise! Surprise!

That was uttered by the actor Jim Nabors while he played Gomer Pyle on TV back in the sixties.  I am in Surprise Arizona tonight. I am playing in a regional tennis tournament with eight other team members from Sedona.  We will play several matches and the winner goes to the national championships at a later date.

Life is full of surprises.  Lou Ann and I went down to Phoenix today and she later left to fly to Houston for her sister Marilyn’s seventieth birthday celebration.  We went shopping at Macy’s and then had only thirty minutes to eat lunch.  We hustled into the Cheesecake Factory.  We told the hostess we only had a half hour and that we were vegan.

She seated us and our server, Courtney arrived and announced that she is a vegetarian and could help us find something plant based on the menu. I was totally surprised when she said that they now had the Impossible Burger! It is totally vegan and tastes like the best beef burger ever!

I saw Lou Ann off at the airport and then headed west to Costco. On the way, I saw the gas prices were about fifteen cents higher than ours up in Sedona.  When I got to Costco I was surprised to discover that their gas was only $2.44 per gallon!  Which is twenty-five cents less than at home!

A little later, I arrived at the Airbnb home at which I was staying.  I met the host who is a kind and caring man named Kevin. I was not surprised! Life is full of surprises. I encourage everyone to keep venturing out and allowing the Universe to keep on surprising us!  From my surprised heart to yours, Thomas
