Wednesday, Mar. 15th here in Ridgeview RV Resort and the clouds have moved in. Still calling for 93F and we are still not complaining. Bill and I were up just after 6:30 this morning to read posts and have our first coffee.

Enough about tea. Now coffee. Okay, we treat ourselves daily by using our Keurig, I’ve mentioned this before. However, when we shopped at Costco in El Centro, Ca, Bill accidentally picked up the box of Starbuck cups instead of the Kirkland brand. Blech! Not big fans of Tim Hortons’ coffee, because it is so strong, we are even less fans of Starbucks….now. As Bill says, no matter how you doctor it up, it still is not a good cup of coffee, in our opinion.

With this in mind, I picked up a pack of hamburg buns, the large ones with sesame seeds on the crust. They were heavenly fresh and great for Bill’s lunch time sandwich. I had already bought a pack of 2 loaves of ‘non-fresh’ bread (my words, not theirs) at Costco and with no room in the freezer, they have kept well in our fridge for at least 3 weeks. What does that tell you? The remainder was made into the bread pudding I mentioned earlier in the week. It is all made up ready to pop it in the convection oven early tomorrow morning.

I was also warned in November that I should savour my last bit of Caesar mix, aka Clamato, because I would not be happy with the choices here. Okay, so I ran out a while ago and put off buying anymore, until last week. It is still brand name, Clamato, but they don’t offer any of the ‘spicy’, ‘extra spicy’ or ‘the works’, just the ‘original’.

Each day for the past couple I’ve heard muted cooing from inside our Suite and each time I’ve come out and watched 2 pigeons scramble from way back inside our hitch. Bill has tried to discourage them a couple of times but today he put an end to their home building. That’ll fix them!
Then we stopped at AutoZone so Bill could pick up some cleaner for the truck that he was looking for and he was very happy to find that DEF fluid was on sale. Bonus! We popped in to say hi to Kevin at the Tattoo shop where Bill got his tattoo in November but he hadn’t shown up yet. I got some pictures of his co-worker’s Harley. Love the skeletal hands holding the mirrors.
Home again by 2:30 and I soon took off for the pool. Countdown, remember? I only have a few days left to fully enjoy this heat and these amenities in the park. The water is getting warmer every day and I enjoyed both the pool and the sun.
I noticed that Lori and Roland, Judy and Oscar and Shatzi were out when I rwalked back at 4:15 but I just waved hello. Bill had suggested we go to Chili’s, one of my favourite places to eat down here, for supper. Another thing I want to get the most of while here, Mexican fare.
Bill ordered the Ultimate Bacon Burger and fries and I had the Smothered Beef Burrito with a side of black beans. It was delicious and we toasted with a marguerita to the great winter we’ve been having. My burrito was huge and half of it came home with me. Yum, I get to savour it twice.
When we got back we took Clemson over briefly to say hi to the Dryden gang. Plus I wanted to check out Lori’s hair and congratulate her on her new wheels. Say what?? I hope it isn’t a secret because she is tickled pink……..er, black.

I was anxious to see if my pictures show an improvement, but they didn't, almost worse so I'm going to have to clean them again. I had tried using my protective lens cover and now wonder if that is what made it worse. The pictures you see today have been 'spot fixed' because they were so bad.
Thank you for reading today, I would love to hear from you.
