Bill and I were up and at ‘em by 7:30 after I’d stirred many times since 6 am. I have lots of things that run through my head and it is a nice quiet time to examine them without interruptions. We find we feel better walking AFTER one morning drink and a bathroom break so we took care of those first. Otherwise, the 2 or 3-mile morning walk leaves us over-anxious to get home to have it.
|And we're ready for the sun to make its appearance|
|And the sky to the west was basking|
|And there it is!|
So, another nice trek almost to the front of La Posa South and back where I fried up bacon and eggs around 9:30.

|In La Posa South, there are two dump stations|
One is for full size rv's with a holding tank and you get a pressurized water hose for flushing
And this one is for Blue Boys only
|A Blue Boy (for you non-rv'ers) is a portable closed in wagon with wheels|
that we can empty our holding tanks into
You put it in or hooked to the back of your vehicle and tow it to this station
|Lots of busy-ness going on already this morning|
|I like walking through the Kitchen Gadget tents|
|They have a gadget for everything|
Even for grilling your jalapenos!

We passed today
|A beautiful day is upon us|
We debated about what to do, go home and come back earlier tomorrow or stick it out and grab a bite to eat for lunch. The former idea worked out and we came home for lunch and to enjoy the rest of the afternoon. We’re hoping to go in for laundry in the morning so Bill can drop me and wander then. Of course, that jello plan may jiggle too between now and then!
|Beautiful rocks at every turn|
|Thinking of Monica and Rose and George with this shot|
After eating, there was nothing pressing to do except sit outside and open our books. Bill is reading one of the new ones Deb and Riley left, David Baldacci’s ‘Total Control’. Other than saying it was in smaller print, he seems to be enjoying it. Good thing he has good glasses now! So, we sat on the ‘patio’ and wiled away the hours, flipping pages.

Waiting her turn
Eventually, around 2:15 Bill went inside with Clemson. By the way, Clemson hardly had any interest in his tent today. Just a couple or three pop-ins. It was like he had ants in his pants or something.

Once they went in, I put my feet up on his stool and continued reading until 3 pm. When I came inside to see if Bill was going out for Happy Hour, he was ‘napped’ and ready to go. He’d fed the little bum, at precisely 3 because that alarm clock went off in his tiny body.
|And we were happy at Happy Hour again today|
We’d peeked out our window at our ‘new’ neighbours on the other side of us. Tom and Deb had relocated and joined our little group when they returned from town this morning. So, we grabbed our chairs, a little table and our drinks and headed over to join them. It was a tea day for me. Prime spots in midafternoon, sitting in the sun, great friends, what else is there?
We had a lovely time, much of it quizzing Deb about the adoption process of their 2 beautiful children. It was all very interesting and it is easy to see and hear how happy they are with their life. Thanks Deb and Tom for sharing that with us. Then we talked about farming, milking cows, being afraid of cows and we all discussed our children and parents and on and on. No one in particular dominated the conversation and that is the way it should be.
We came home around 5 and Bill lit the Weber while I took little 4 legs for a walk down to the corner and back. Actually, we ran more than we walked but it was good exercise. Our friend, Monica, from CanAm in London has challenged me on Fitbit to a Weekend Warrior event. It is a fun challenge that encourages your friends to push themselves and take more steps for, in this case, a 2-day weekend.
So, I’m putting the push on when I can and listening to my Fitbit more often as it tells me to ‘take me for a walk’, etc. We’ll see how we all do. We'll all be 'winners' because of it.
Supper was simple because all we wanted was a loaded burger. It was loaded indeed and messy, just the way I love them. We skipped the bacon but had the regular, mustard, mayo, ketchup, onion, lettuce, tomato and Vlasic dill pickle on a melted cheese burger. Delicious and just enough……..for now.
We both sat after dishes and downloaded the pictures that we took today. I pecked away at my keyboard to finish my post. You guessed it, I wanted to get back to my book. Something I wanted to mention today because I neglected to do so yesterday. I thought of it, but it made me sad for some reason and you can’t type through tears easily.

Yesterday, Bruce, my older brother who passed in 2011, would have been 65. I’m sure there would have been some fun and easy teasing from little sis to big bro about him being so much older than I. The funny part is that I was just 20 months behind him. Happy Birthday, Bruce, I’m sure you know I’m thinking of you.

(oh, and my doll Suzie)
This has been another great day here in Quartzsite. We can’t wait to see what tomorrow brings.
|Good night to a very nice day|
Thank you for stopping by. If you wish to comment, I’d love to read what you have to say.
