On Thursday, Jan. 16th we were both pretty well rested when we woke up. We should have been too! It was 9 when Bill went to bed last night and 9:30 for me. We just couldn’t keep our eyes open and weren’t keen on any television programs that were on. Not too sure why we were so tired other than Bill missing his snooze and it is normal for me to go at that time.
|As we walked, I snapped pictures of the clouds that|
I was hoping not to see all day
|The picture on the left is the additional drive up dump station|
which is new this winter
|This saguaro is very old but with a buddy waving as we walked by|
|There are few of these old buses coming into La Posa South|
I'm sure there will be more
We crossed the street to K & B Tools and the vendor directly across from them. Both Bill and I thought of George as we got our free stick-on 2020 calendar.
|These little calendars come in handy|
He was the first one to tell us about them so we try to get a couple each year for the fridge and for the truck. Lastly, we ended up in the Food tent where I like to spend a lot of time poking. Some of the canned goods are outdated but if you look, and check the dates, you’ll luck out at cheap prices.
|A few more pictures from our walk this morning|
and bottom corner is the big tent, up and ready for the onslaught
I found about 8 cans of things for our pantry and eventually we made our way back to the truck. I had a phone call from Gayle to catch up and discuss some things regarding Mom and made tentative plans to get together before they leave Plomosa Road and head to Mexico. They are in the area until the 23rd of January so if no where else, we’ll see them at Silly Al’s for a pizza meal. It was nice to chat with her.
|We stopped briefly at RV Lifestyles but Bob didn't get any|
satisfaction here for his inverter
Back home, we were hungry so I made our bacon and eggs and a coffee each. It was 12 noon when we were ready to eat. The Suite felt cool when we stepped inside, warmer outside than in. It was 61F indoors and 57F outdoors so with the sun fighting to push its way through the clouds, we opened the outside door.
|Bill took a couple of pictures today at our Happy Hour|

After dishes, Bill went out to putter with more of his solar lights and I took my book out to do some chair hopping (as our blogger friend, Bob, says). I’m good at it so why not do it? The sun was so hot that even the winds from the southwest felt nice. I read for a while and when Bill finished with the lights, he also sat in the sun with his book. He eventually dozed, right there in the chair and I stretched out and did the same. It was wonderful! Our friends around us were also enjoying the afternoon outdoors.
|Through a dirty window, the sun sets|
At 2:50, Ken arrived at his doorstep with a beer in his hand. Nothing else needed to be said so after the laughter subsided, we all moved our chairs out to the middle and proceeded with today’s Happy Hour. The party didn’t break up until 5:30 and the sun was beginning to drop. The temperature sure began dropping too with the winds gusting to 16 mph. It doesn’t sound like much but it is considerable enough to send a chill over our heated bodies. Suppertime!
|Bill had the plain and I had the peppered|
They were tasty and we'll buy them again
|Right off the grill, it was still quite pink inside|
but letting it rest for a couple of minutes
|It was very tasty and juicy|
(Not red juicy, just tender juicy)
Good night y'all!
Thank you for your visit!
