We Had a Good Christmas and Some Thoughts

Yuma, Arizona             High 61 Low 36(brrr)

Our Company made it for Christmas and we had a good meal thanks to Cindy and Linda. We are still having left overs. There were presents for everyone, even Penny. She got some nice presents from some of her doggie friends (and their parents).

Scot and Daniel made it from Phoenix.

The weather here turned cold and yesterday there were winds all day. I saw on TV that there were over 50 MPH gusts. Today was nicer, but it is still cold with a little wind.

From reading Al’s blog, while I don’t try to write every day, I write for a lot of the same reasons. The blog started out to be so our kids could follow along and see where we were or had been, but I soon learned that very few, if any of them follow along. Now the reason I write is so I can go back and look at where we have been and see some of the sights again. It is always nice to see where we were on a certain day. I’m sorry, but my memory is not as good as it once was.

As for buying the home in Yuma……..We have been coming to Arizona for the last 4 winters spending a lot of time in Yuma and Mesa. Of the two places, there are a lot less people in Yuma and the traffic isn’t nearly as bad. When we stayed for our “free” week at this RV resort, we both liked it enough that we wanted to make it our permanent stop in the winter. Yes, I guess timing is everything. So far we haven’t found anything at this Park that we don’t like, although we have been too busy to meet very many of the people, with company and a few things I wanted to change. I could tell that Cindy was tired of moving to a different Park every week and even the month we stayed at Welton wasn’t really long enough. With that in mind, we reserved a space in Mesa for two months, then the "free" week came along.

I hope everyone had as good a Christmas as we did and hope the New Year brings you much happiness.

Thanks for visiting.
