As for finding The Resort, Kit and Jack were spending the weekend in Texas and decided to visit Arizona. They’d planned to stay at nearby Usery Mountain Park but discovered it was full. Driving around Mesa, they spotted a sign that Jack couldn’t resist:
COME ON IN
HAVE A SLICE OF CHERRY PIE WITH ICE CREAM!
He turned in. They felt welcome and decided they’d stay at The Resort while they looked for somewhere else to be their regular spot. Like so many others since, they decided there was no place better.
Although she lost Jack a dozen years back, Kit has continued to spend most of the year at The Resort and continues to keep very busy. You might see her at billiards, or golf, the casino or the chorale, or you might spot her riding around the park on her orange bike. Plus, she’s the Director of the Kitchen Band that performs at Resort breakfasts and has appearances around the Easy Valley.
She summed up her life at The Resort by saying, “My life is full!” And then she offered her philosophy: “I get up with a smile and a happy face and hope to keep it all day long.”
