Merry Christmas

Yuma, Arizona       High 70 Low 43

The day started out a little chilly but turned out to be a really nice day.

We seem to stay busy all the time. For instance last week we had the lit up bike ride around the Park led by golf Carts decorated for Christmas. I didn't hear a count on the bikes, but we probably had more than usual. The golf carts went slow enough that we had no problem keeping up. Cindy rode along for the whole distance even without her bike being lit up. The golf carts went first, then the bikes that had been in the parade, then anyone else that wanted to ride.

Her I am  getting Penny ready to ride as Max, the Grinch's dog, one last time.

Of coarse there is still Shuffle board every other day. One day a week we trade off either going to other Parks or they come here. Last Tuesday we went to another Park. We play a total of 9 games, 5 games then 4. Our players only won one game of the nine but every one of was having trouble with their courts. Their players seemed to know how to play they better than us.

We gave each other Christmas presents, Cindy got a bigger TV with a built in DVD player and I got some new clothes.

Here is our Christmas tree.

Yesterday and today we each called our kids and I got to talk to my little shadow, who is now 8 years old. He told me he misses Penny.

This afternoon we had Christmas dinner for everyone in the Park. The Park supplies the turkey and gravy, the same as Thanksgiving, and 20 people per table supply everything else for dinner. We always have way more to eat that everyone can eat and there are always left overs.

Our friends, Rob and Sharon from the Park.
Cindy like to decorate our table and she and another lady went up early to decorate. The table probably looked better than any of the others.

Some of our small dog park people had just got to the Park last Wednesday night and didn't know about Christmas dinner and so I talked to the activity director and asked him if there was room for them. He told me sure and so I went to their motor home and invited them. They still didn't know if they we going to make it but I was glad to see that they decided to come to the dinner.

Here's wishing you and yours a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
