Good Friends

Yuma, Arizona        High 78 Low 54

The wind finally quit for a while. It also finally got warmer. It sure feels good.

We had invited Jim and Sandi Dixon to stay in our driveway here in Yuma while they were here. I got a call from Sandi a few days ago and she said she would have to decline our offer. It seems that the new dog they got wants to bark way too much and she was afraid our neighbors would complain. So they went out to the BLM parking by Pilot Knob. They have dental work to take care of in Algodones.

So we decided to go to dinner with them. Sandi let me pick and I had heard good things about Chicken On The Run, so we went there. The restaurant has always looked busy in spite of looking like a Mom and Pop place. When we got there, the parking lot was almost full and we were told we had about a 10 minute wait for a table. The ten minute wait turned into maybe 3 minutes. So we were seated almost immediately. Sandi and  I had fried chicken, Cindy had a pork chop, and Jim had cat fish. Everyone said the food was very good and the prices were very reasonable.

We hope to see them again while they are in the area.

Cindy and I have been staying busy here in this Park. Cindy's quilt group has got a lot bigger and I have been going with her to take her machine in and to help her cut material.

One day when I took Penny to the small dog park, there were 22 dogs, which is a lot more than usual.

The Park is a lot fuller than it has been. I've been told a lot of people came from Quartzsite.

We are going to have visitors, but I will wait until they get her to say any more about it.

Thanks for visiting.


  1. We've told everybody how good that chicken was. Thanks for suggesting it. Good to see you guys and we'll see you again before we head out.

  2. Thanks for the heads up on Chicken on the Run as we'll be heading towards Yuma next week. Maybe we'll get a chance to say Hello.
    The Exchange Rate is slowly starting to change bring the dollars a bit closer in value. This year would probably be a favourable time to get your touring in.
    Be Safe and Enjoy!

    It's about time.
