La Posa South, Quartzsite, AZ
We were up on Monday, Nov. 29th later than normal. That was the late night last night, as after we got home from the campfire, we watched a movie until 11. So, at 7:30 we dragged ourselves up out of bed. Me, dragging more than Bill. 😊 I’m not ashamed to say that I need my 8 ½ to 9 hours to be able to ‘bounce’ out of bed in the morning. Well, bounce was a bit of an exaggeration. LOL
I had a blog to finish so I did that while letting the sun come up and charge up the batteries a bit. Gibbs and I went out after he’d eaten his breakfast and we saw Gayle coming back from her 50-minute walk. Good for her! She told me yesterday that she hadn’t quite got into the routine yet so I’m happy she has started. Us Snelgrove girls do like to walk!

Inside, I had my tea and we each had a shower. Before we hook up in the morning, Bill likes to fill the truck up so we took a jaunt into town. I’d seen an easier harness for dogs and one that wouldn’t be as hot on Gibbs so we stopped there to pick one up for his size. Getting it adjusted perfectly for a good fit is always a challenge with a squirmy pup but we’ll get it right after a few tries.
We found Jim’s RC planes shop on a back street that I can’t name and Bill went in to get a prop for the plane that did a nose dive. While he was inside, I heard a familiar noise and got all excited. I know what that is!! I was out of the truck with my phone camera all ready to go when I saw them. At least 25 Gamble quails were scampering all around the gardens, chattering to each other. ♥ My first sighting of them is always the best but I never tire of seeing them.
This is your sneak preview. ♥
Back home, it was noon hour so I made bacon and eggs for lunch. Our supper would be simple so this was good to have in our tummies. 😊

After dishes, Bill snoozed and I wandered over to Gayle’s patio and she and I had another game of Cribbage. John was watching the football game inside and Gibbs was inside with Bill. It was fun and now after a taste of it, I’ll miss having her to play games with. ☹
I had texted Lorne about maybe hitching a ride in his bright yellow Jeep, just for fun. I figured this could be my only chance to do that and he had kind of offered. After I hinted. 😊 Around 2:30, he pulled up and I hopped in.
It was a hoot and I wasn’t even worried about where we were going because I knew he did. Hah! That was when he told me that he had no clue either, twisting and turning this way and that, over this wash, these rocks, bushes. It was only when the Jeep stalled that my mind went into freak-out mode for a few seconds. How far back is it??
Lots of cholla cacti out there but many
are trying to recoup from the winter
I was setting up the selfie on my phone
I'd say we found the King of the..........mountain? 😂
My pictures we slightly washed out but here we are

Fun times, thank you Lorne for that experience. Back home, Bill drove Gibbs and I over to Lorne and Sue’s site just so Sue could say goodbye………….to Gibbs. 💕 (well, us too). Then, we relaxed together here at the Suite. Gibbs and I sat outside in the half shade and just watched the world go by on a quiet afternoon. Bill sat inside and read his book and the melancholy hit me that we were not only leaving Quartzsite for a bit but also our family and friends.
We’d not be seeing Gayle and John again this winter unless their plans jiggled. We’ll be back in January but they’ll be gone. For supper, we had toasted blt’s without the bacon tonight. Instead, we added cheese with, of course, my olives on the side. They were quite yummy! Tonight, is our best tv night but we’ve been invited to watch Nomadland at Judy and Gary’s site with Gayle and John. Bill has the pvr set up to record what is most important so we won’t miss anything. 😊
He did dishes and I worked on my blog. It still may not get done tonight. We’ll see. The movie was A-W-E-S-O-M-E!! It wasn’t probably as close to reality as the book was but it was entertaining, and other than 2 of the main characters, everyone played themselves. I like that. If you boondock at all, especially here in the Quartzsite area, I recommend taking the time to rent it. Gary and Judy have a great set up over there with a private patio setting and with their propane fire pit and tv, it was cozy and warm.
|Easy, tasty supper|
We were home before 9 and I planned on staying up until 10, if I could. It was a busy but wonderful day! Our last one here for a while but we are looking forward to going to a nice new rv park tomorrow and meeting up with our friends from Illinois. ♥
Thank you for stopping around. Your comments are always a joy to read.
