Wishing Everyone a Merry Christmas

Yuma, Arizona      High 68 Low 56

Although the temperature isn't too bad, the wind blew most of the day and to us (Yes, I know we are boobs) it felt cold. I'm sure glad I'm not where it really is cold. It started raining at about 7:00 tonight and is supposed to rain until sometime in the morning. It rained a little one day last week and one of the locals told me it was a 2 inch storm, two inches between drops. It was just enough to get all the cars dirty. The rain now looks to be a little more.

We had Santa in the park and then had a pet parade. Most of the dogs were dressed up to be in Christmas costumes. Penny, on the other hand, doesn't like to be dressed up and so I carried her in her bag. The only time I put her down, she walked about 25 feet and then put on the brakes and acted afraid of the carts and so I put her back in her bag and just walked the rest of the way in the parade.

This is before Penny's hair cut.

She feels safe and secure in her bag.

This picture was taken by Nephi on our way home. It has snowed a lot since then.
Yesterday Penny went to the groomers and got a hair cut. Now she doesn't have to look through hair to see. Everyone that saw her told me she looks smaller than before and lots cuter. I have to add that she's not very spoiled (yes she is a lot spoiled) but when she looks up at me those big eyes, I just can't resist.
After her hair cut.
Cindy has been busy making another quilt. She also spent today making Christmas cookies. We have a Christmas pot luck in the Park and she says she will probably spend Saturday getting ready for it.

I finally got all through with the dentist until March and I'm glad I don't have to go back for a while.

We got our bikes going, but I had to replace one of my tubes. When I inspected the tire, I found a large thorn in it. Hopefully there aren't any others.

The time here seems to be flying by. Probably because there is so much to do in this Park. Lately I have been able to play Shuffle board 4 mornings a week.

I take Penny to Yappy Hour most days and she has a good time running and playing with the other small dogs.

Here's wishing everyone a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. I hope everyone get's what they want for Christmas.

Thanks for visiting.
