Park Place RV Park
Tuesday, Dec. 5th Bill and Gibbs went out at 6:20 for their first walk.
I slipped out of bed and hopped into the shower. We had a full day planned. That
was the only walk Gibbs got with me before Bill and I left him in charge at 8 o’clock.
I left a note (from Gibbs to his sitters) on the island with treats, his leash,
spot cleaner and doggie bags and gave him his ‘look after the house’ treat. 😉
to Yuma for some shopping, Christmas, grocery and otherwise. It was a beautiful
day. I’m not sure what time Carol-Ann and Kobus collected him but I received this
picture at 10:30 with the message ‘Gibbs all settled in’. ♥ We can’t say how much of a relief it is to know he is back home and in
great hands. We were able to go about our day without a worry. He’s our child
though so his name came up a couple of times in conversation because we missed
We stopped at Target, Ross, Hobby Lobby, Harbor Freight and the .99¢ Store before going to Black Bear Diner for lunch. It was 12 noon and they were very slow bringing us our meal. We did have milkshakes to tide us over and kind of fill us while we waited. 😊 The waiter was good and apologetic so he received a nice tip all the same. When we left there, we went back to Fry’s for our groceries.
Familiar sights in Yuma
Lin's, the Chinese Buffet we frequented in our first
few years down here. George introduced us to this restaurant.

were a few good bargains and being there on Tuesday, Seniors’ Day, was an
unexpected bonus as it got us 10% everything as well. We left Yuma around 2:30
and drove into our site at 3:40. Good timing! We unloaded bags and then went to
gather our little boy. Needless to say, he was quite excited to see us and it
was reported that they all had a great day together. ♥ We can’t thank them enough.
A little story about Gibbs' day. Carol-Ann took him for 3 walks. The first one, she wasn't thinking and came up towards the front of the park. When Gibbs got close to our site, he stopped and wouldn't move. She brought him to the door and inside so he could see that we weren't here. He walked a bit more and then laid down, not budging. Carol-Ann is a small lady and Gibbs is 25 pounds. You can guess what happened next. She carried him all the way back to their site. The next walks were in the opposite direction!
|My lunch was huge, filling and delicious!
I brought half of the milkshake home, what you
see is not what you get. They bring the metal cup
that it was blended in and it is 3/4 full still. ♥
I have packaged
meat to separate into meal sizes but everything else found a home in the
cupboards or fridge. We agreed that we won’t be needing supper tonight, my Bear
Benedict with hash browns and fruit was filling! Bill had a large burger with
fries. We may be snacking later, we’ll see.
been a good day and we’re quite tuckered. For those who don’t know the area,
Yuma is 90 minutes from where we are but well worth the trip to and fro. We are
ready for Christmas. 😊
for stopping by!
