Tuesday / Monday
OK Les (Leslee, one of our daughters), I know I’ve been a little lax on writing the journal, and I promise I’ll do better.
We met with Mark and Susan (Louise’s brother and sister-n-law) at their winter home here in Yuma last night (Wednesday). They bought this beautiful “garden home” in the Foothills area of Yuma about 2 years ago. Both Louise and I could easily see ourselves living here for the winters. They have a large covered patio in the back, an unbelievable garage, two bedrooms, two full baths, living room, dining, and a great kitchen, so when you are in the area, call them for they will always have room for you to stay (don’t tell them I sent you…). During the rest of the days that we’ve been here we have been to the mall at least 3 times. The first time we found a great fan that we have been using in the motor home to push the air around during the hottest part of the days. I also found a wireless speaker system that I can use outside under the canopy. I’ve been turning the radio up to hear the music out there, so this will help a lot. On Thursday we found a place to help us with our taxes. Fortunately we were able to walk away with our shirts still on our backs. Easter Sunday we joined a large group here at the campground and had a very nice brunch and then settled back and enjoyed a little pool time. The weather has really been good. The day temp is running anywhere from 85 to 95 and the nights are getting down to the mid 50’s. We also had our windshield fixed on Sunday. Just before getting across the border last week, we were struck by a small rock and it gave us a nice little “spider” just above the bottom of the passenger windshield. This morning (Monday) we were entertained by “Air Force 1” coming into Yuma. It seems that President Bush was coming to town to see just how the new border fencing, and all the other changes at the border, are working out. We on the other hand, were going across the border once again. We were off to Algodones for a dental appointment and a re-supply of tequila.
