Today was sunny until a bit ago and now it has clouded over, they are calling for rain this afternoon and then the forecast is for 15 days of warmth and sunshine – I sure do like that!

Wednesday night we had a great dinner with Janet & Dave at Texas Roadhouse and the ribs were really good – even better, we had enough left over for Thursday nights’ dinner. Next time we will split a large order of ribs between us as this time I had half a rack and John had a whole one – way too much. Fortunately the restaurant wasn’t really busy so we were able to sit and visit for quite a while after we finished eating. On the way home we stopped at Wal Mart for a bit just to walk around and help wear off dinner and it did feel good just to move around for a bit.

Thursday morning we had to wait for Time Warner to come out and look at our internet connection, the fellow arrived about 10:30 and obviously found something wrong as it works great now. He saw we have Macs so was asking us a lot of questions about them as he and his wife are in the process of having to buy a new laptop, we told him we wouldn’t have anything other than a Mac.

It was about noon when I headed out to do laundry, I find that is usually a good time to go and it turned out to be a really good time this week as there were only a couple of other people there when I got there and when I left there was only one other person in there, don’t know what happened but it was great not having to dodge around a lot of people. John dropped me off and then went to the market to wander around for a while and got back just as I was folding the clothes – great timing. The rest of the day was pretty quiet – reading and watching the Olympics on TV.

Yesterday morning was aquafit again so I got some of my exercise for the day. In the afternoon I went for a walk and stopped to chat with Ben & Diane for a bit, Diane had mentioned the baked potato dinner tonight (Saturday) to John but I wanted to stop and tell her we had been out too much this week already so would pass on it this time.

We went over to Steve & Brenda’s about 4 as we were going to an all you could eat fish fry with them. They had let the guard at the gate know we were coming so we got in with no problem, the only trouble was that we had no idea where their spot was so had a tour of the park before finding them! For a very expensive, elite park we were not impressed with the lot sizes, in fact some of the houses that are being built in there have their patio just about into the side of the house next door – not my idea of nice!!

It turns out dinner was at the Desert Hills golf course (we had no idea where we were going when they asked us to join them) where we have played before and we remember seeing the ad for All You Can Eat Fish & Chips on Friday nights, it was $10 each and very good (but still not as good as the Erie Belle). They had a drink special of iced tea and vodka that I tried and it was really good - and cheaper than John’s beer! All in all it was a good dinner and a nice time with Steve & Brenda. We drove to dinner so when we got back to their place we stopped at the office and they showed us around the pool, clubhouse, etc., very nice but not my cup of tea.

This morning was yard sale day here in the park so John went out and rode his bike around but he didn’t find anything to spend his money on. He was gone a long time so I figured he must have stopped to chat somewhere and he had, with a fellow from Gravenhurst. I can’t get too excited about yard sales as I figure I have enough junk of my own without buying someone else’s, so unless there is something in particular I am looking for I stay away from them. We are going to head out shortly to make a quick trip to Fry’s and Wal Mart in the hopes that later in the afternoon they won’t be too busy – probably dreaming in Technicolor about that!

And so ends a few more great gifts of days and we look forward to more wonderful days here in Yuma.

I came across this video of how Airstreams are made, and wondered if you had seen it?
I have had several Airstreams, and with the right hitch, I don't know why anyone would want a 5er, with all those steps! Nothing tows like an Airstream.
My 1961 Bambi is still in great shape!
