Super Bowl Sunday

Indio, California: Our day started early, wanting to exercise before the temperatures (another 88 degree day) grew too warm and before we became lethargic from too much Super Bowl unhealthy binge eating. And drinking. 

Kris and I walked around the block, which covers my coveted 10,000 steps/4 miles. Steve went for a long run and David (STILL rehabbing from his knee surgeries) walked for an hour. Fitbits appeased, we showered and headed over to Old Town La Quinta to stroll (more steps!) around the Farmers Market.

Solano's.

Green chile and cheese tamale with eggs and black beans

Very good food and very good service. We had a table on the patio in the shade with a great opportunity to people-watch the produce shoppers.

After a bit of a "Sunday Drive" to show-off the picturesque desert to our guests, it was time to return to the Motorcoach Country Club for a bit of rest.

I served my silver-medal-winning Caramelized Onion Dip, nachos, a crudité tray, and Buffalo Chicken Meatballs.

TRIVIA: With the Philadelphia win this evening, did Kenjon Barner become the first/only Duck track team member to win a Super Bowl ring? I wondered and posed the question to my Duck pals. They quickly responded: No. He is not. Mel Renfro (long jump and high hurdles) won Super Bowl rings with the Dallas Cowboys in 1972 and1978. Walter Thurmond III (hurdler) earned a ring with the Seattle Seahawks in 2014. Maybe there are more Duck tracksters with massive rings?

Until my next update, I remain, your happy correspondent.

*did not play; injured; still gets a ring.
