WE ADD TO OUR VEHICLE FLEET

Aileen in her new toy

Well, it has been another dry spell as far as this blog goes.  Life just cruises along day after day.  We had a good trip back from Quartzsite to Florence back on January 27th.  We took the longer way via Gila Bend so Aileen didn’t have to try and follow me through the busy freeways of Phoenix.  We left at 9:15 and were back in Caliente about 2:30.
Then we were busy for several days.  Lots of laundry to do and the inside of the motor home was covered in dust.  We have friends staying in the park model for a couple of months now so we have less room to spread out.  I managed to get a spot in the storage yard to park my utility trailer so that helps a bit.  We’ve been up to Mesa and area several times in the past few days so are getting tired of that. 
We were invited to a Super Bowl party last Sunday.  Not being a sports fan, I sat in the kitchen playing Sets with a couple of the ladies.  I managed to win one of the three games.  That’s the first win in quite a while.   For being score keeper, you’d think I’d win a few more!  Another afternoon, we were invited to a party to welcome a new couple who just bought on Palo Verde Lane a few doors up from our park model.

Yesterday we were up to Apache Junction to pay for the RZR 570 that we’d bought on Saturday.  The manager delivered it last night and was here in time to join the ATV club at a hamburger/hot dog party in the Florence Gardens clubhouse.  There were 90 of us there.  Free food really brings the people out.  We took the RZR for a ride out behind the park and were rather disappointed in the amount of dust that came in on us.  I think it will be a fun machine to take us out to some interesting places while we are in area.

Looks like somebody is having fun
