Da Boyz Again

 Yuma, Arizona        High 70 Low 45

It warmed up today and no wind, which made for a very pleasant day.

We went to Da Boyz again. We were also in the Marilyn room again. Cindy and I tried something different this time. Cindy had a blue cheese salad, which was enough for both of  us with enough left over for her to have salad for two more days. I had the garlic herb chicken which also had enough noodle for a couple of days. It was the first salad I've seen with a whole head of lettuce.

We had a group of 18 people. One of the couples has returned to Canada. Some of the rest of us plan on leaving in the next two weeks to go back to the Frozen North. Salt Lake and through Utah has snow predicted about every other day until Easter.

I have lots of quilts to do when I get back. some for customers nd lots for Cindy.

Thanks for visiting.

Italian Wedding

 Yuma, Arizona         High 69 Low 50

After some really nice days, today turned cool with lots of wind predicted. It is still better than freezing temperatures and snow like Utah has been having.

We attended what was called an Italian Wedding Without the Bride or Groom. It was a pitch in of about 5 couples at a table for the whole Park. We weren't going to go, but invited to go at the last day.

There were lots of costumes and everyone had fun. One of the ladies at our table went, what she called dessert hopping, after we had finished eating.

Cindy found these table cloths at an estate sale and brought them for this event. We thought the olives looked Italian.

Dressed up like a Priest and Nunn.

Thanks for visiting.

Volunteer Appreciation Dinner

 Yuma, Arizona        High 74 Low 49

The weather here has been delightful, warm, not too hot, and very little wind. This is unlike back in Utah, rain and snow at least every other day, if not daily and highs in the thirties.

The other night we has a volunteer appreciation dinner for all the people in the Park that volunteered in any way. This years dinner was way better than in the past. We had Snow-crab legs, Prime steak bits, lots of salads, and great deserts.

Afterward, there was a singer to entertain us that did a great job.

Unfortunately, I was too busy enjoying the food and entertainment to take many pictures.

Thanks for visiting.

Show And Tell

 Yuma, Arizona        High 73 Low 49

The weather this week has been really nice with the only exception of wind one night.

We got together with some of the Park residents for a Show and Tell. There are many talented people. Of course, there were more quilts than anything. There was a wood worker that made wooden stars using all hand tools. One made pictures using pieces of yarn. 

There was a 3D printer that made things using plastic spools that look like thick wire. It used a computer that moves the twin heads, melting the plastic into different shapes.

One person had a pair of goggles that you put on. He could then have it look like you were anywhere in the world, even on a roller coaster (which I didn't try).

Another had what looked like a race track that you could move like you were driving a race car.

There were pottery people, card makers, doily makers and lots of quilts. 

I got lots of pictures.

We didn't have much notice but we had a good turn-out of both participants and visitors, so we probably will do it again next year.

Thanks for visiting.
