Trivia With A Twist and Penny Got a Hair Cut

Yuma, Arizona            High 75 Low 52

Tom, our activity go to man, put on another Trivia show for the Park. He puts on different things for the teams to do which include different trivia questions, but also has them act out different things. Then this time he had the three teams carry empty pop cans from one place to another on a spaghetti noodle but the two people had to hold the noodle in their mouth and not touch the can. With all the broken noodles, it made for a good time for the audience. The winners soon learned to keep the can near one of them and the noodle didn't break so fast.

Penny got a much needed hair cut. We waited because it has been so cool and we knew she would freeze in the mornings. And sure enough, she now shivers when ever she goes out in the morning. This time the groomer put two small bows on here head, and unlike when they have put in one large one that she couldn't get out soon enough, this time she has left the bows alone. We think she looks cute with the little bows.

We got some sunset pictures last night. Arizona seems to have some spectacular sunsets.

We are still enjoying our time here and are still staying almost too busy.

Thanks for visiting.

The Gun Fight

Yuma, Arizona         High 74 Low 50

Yesterday we got invited to a gun fight. No, not a real gun fight. There are a group of people that perform at the Old Yuma Prison every Saturday and put on various skits about the old West.

One couple from our Park along with one of the security guards from here are part of the group. Every year they put on skits in our Park to help raise money for future trips they take as a group to put on their show in various parts of the surrounding area. They seemed to do pretty well at this one. 

Lilly has the big camera. She is one of our friends from the Park.

Mike, the owner of the lot, is the one on the far right with suspenders.

After the skits we all had a pot luck dinner. It was very good with lots of food for everyone.

A large group of spectators.

The first skit ended up with everyone dead with the exception of the lady owner of the bar. The second, through a misunderstand, ended with all the men dead while the ladies went shopping.

While a little silly, it was a fun afternoon which ended up with all the people getting well fed.

Thanks for visiting.

Sunrise and Concert

Yuma, Arizona           High 76 Low 54
Today is a little cooler with some wind. I'm afraid we have turned into Arizonans because we are both feeling the cold because of the wind.

Yesterday we had a really nice sunrise and Cindy got some pictures for a few seconds and then it was gone as the sun came up.

Last night we went to a concert here in our Park with Gene Watson, a country singer, here in person. It was a well attended concert and I was told it was the largest attended this season. There were lots of Country Music fans from our Park and from other places in Yuma.

I recognized a lot of his songs but there were several that I don't think I've heard before. We both enjoyed the concert. most of his band had been with him for many years with the exception of his piano player that he said was new with this performance. They all did a good job entertaining the crowd.

His final song was one that he told us hit number one in 1981 and it was one of the ones we recognized.

From Wikipedia I found out that he is 75 years old and he told us he had been performing for 54 years. He is from Texas but he told us that he got his real start in Canada.

We are both still staying busy and enjoying our time here in Yuma.

Thanks for visiting.
