My Birthday Girl

Yuma, Arizona        High 89 Low 64

It is still a little warm but the weather for the few days before yesterday was a nice lower 80 during the day and the low 60's at night. We didn't even turn on the Air Conditioning for 3 days.

Cindy had a birthday and we (I) invited some of of our Yuma friends over for cake and ice cream. I tried to make it a surprise for her, but she saw me whispering to one of our friends and figured out what was going on. Then I put the cake and ice cream in the outside fridge and she went looking for something and I was busted.

Not everyone I invited could make it but we still had probably 20 people. We talked about the summer and got all caught up on our lives. I think everyone liked getting together with their winter friends. Cindy told me later that she was glad I had the birthday party for her.

We have also started the Palms Bike Brigade three times per week. For this early in the year, we have had a good turn-out. We ride for about 30 minutes each night and ride about 4 miles. I like to think it helps keep some of us old people younger, but I'm not sure. This year I'm able to keep up a lot better than when I first started riding the bike with them.

Penny has been to the small dog park a few times and one day there were 7 small dogs there. She had fun running around with a one year old that was a little bigger then her.

Cindy has finish sewing quite a few quilts. I will be way behind on my quilting when we get home.

Yesterday we found an estate sale that had material in it. We tried to be the first there and made it to see the material before any one else. Yes I know, we don't really need any more material, but when you can get about 20 yards of material for $15.00, it is kind of hard to turn down, and besides whoever has the most material wins.

We are enjoying our time here.

Thanks for visiting.

One More Day In Paradise

Yuma, Arizona           High 82 Low 61

Last evening we started to hear thunder and while there was quite a lot of lightning to the east, we didn't get any rain.

I tried to get some pictures of the lightning but all I was able to get were some pictures with the clouds lit up but not actual lightning.

You can't really tell but all the light on the bottom of the clouds was caused by lightning.

We have had some interesting clouds yesterday and today.

Sunny today with a few clouds.

The weather right now is almost as nice as we could ask for.

On a more serious side, last week I went to Algodones to get a tooth I lost a filling from repaired. First I went to the dentist to see what could be done and she had to send me to a specialist to have a root canal. While I was there she found two cavities in my front teeth which she filled. I was there in her chair for an hour. Then I went to the specialist. Cindy had gone with me and wanted to go for a walk while he worked on my tooth. When she asked how long I would be the receptionist told her about an hour.

Two hours later I finally got to leave, after sitting in a dentists chair for three hours. The specialist told me I could go back to the dentist the same day to get fitted for the cap and I told the original dentist that I would pass on the fitting the same day but would come back another day. three hours was long enough.

Two days later I went back and got the fitting which took almost another hour. I was glad I didn't stay the first day.

Only one more trip and I will have a new cap.

Things in this park are still kind of quiet since the don't really get going until Halloween but life is good.

Thanks for visiting.

Perfect Weather

Yuma, Arizona         High 84 Low 62

After all the rain last week, the weather today couldn't have been better. We went for a couple of walks, one of which we took Penny to the small dog park. At first she was the only dog there, but another small dog showed up after a little while.

We didn't know the dog, but the two of them seemed to get along alright. After some sniffing they seemed to just ignore each other. It was still a little warm for them while we were there.

There are a lot more people showing up almost every day. The activities in the Park don't start until after Halloween and then a person can stay as busy as they want to.

The weather back in Utah has been rainy for the past week and looks like it will keep up for the next week.

We got some picture of the mountains by Salt Lake City and there is snow. I'm glad we are here and not back there even though we probably came to Yuma two weeks early.

It looks plenty cold up there. These pictures are looking at the Wasatch Mountains east of Salt Lake Valley.

Thanks for visiting.
