My family recently went to Golf N’ Stuff and I interviewed Taylor Nelson, the Director of Sales for Golf N’ Stuff. She has been working at Golf N’ Stuff since 2016 when she first worked as a cashier.

Since COVID began, Nelson helps schedule outside birthday parties. We talked about the history of Golf N’ Stuff and COVID safety guidelines. There are three locations for Golf N’ Stuff: One in Tucson and two locations in Ventura and Norwalk in California. In fact, the original Karate Kid movie used the Golf N’ Stuff arcade as a movie set in Norwalk.

 Jeff Kinney’s new book, “Rowley Jefferson’s Awesome Friendly Spooky Stories,” was released March 16. This is the third book in the Awesome Friendly series, and it is spectacular! You’ll like it if you enjoy somewhat spooky and funny stories.

There are lots of fun short stories told from Rowley’s point of view. In my opinion, Rowley’s point of view is fun and exciting, like it is being told by one of your friends. The Wimpy Kid books are told from Greg’s point of view, and he seems to try to act older and more mature than Rowley.

 Recently I was fortunate enough to do a Zoom interview with Jeff Kinney, author of Diary of a Wimpy Kid and Diary of an Awesome Friendly Kid series. Kinney will be in Tucson for a drive-through book event at Mostly Books on March 26.

Kinney said that he is looking forward to being in Arizona. “Some of my happiest memories as a father have been going through Sedona...and other parts of Arizona with my kids,” He says. He is looking forward to visiting again with his family.

 “The Croods 2: A New Age” was even better than the first Croods movie! It was full of adventure and humor as well as a lesson about building relationships.

 The movie builds upon the first movie, so you might want to watch “The Croods” before watching The Croods 2. I love the saying that one of the main characters, Grug says. He always tells his family that, “The pack stays together” as they travel and look for a place where the Crood family can be safe.

 There are many ways to celebrate New Year’s Day. My family and I celebrate New Year’s with new shoes. We buy new shoes to symbolize putting ourselves on a new path to success.

This year our shoes have a travel theme. We chose a travel theme because we stayed at home almost a year due to the COVID-19 lockdown. The shoes we chose were covered with a colorful map of the world.
