After a “cold” spell, we’re finally back to normal temperatures for Yuma. We have to admit, days in the 50s just aren’t why we come to Arizona in the winter! When the rest of the country is in the deep freeze, though, we can hardly complain. Well, we can but we probably shouldn’t.
We had a good time in Quartzsite this year in what our Eagle friends dubbed the Eaglet. It will take a bit of adjusting and adapting, but I think we can fit in comfortably for our spring travels.
Our rally was a bit short on Eagle buses but not short on friends. Not all of them drive Eagles, but all of them enjoy conversation and most like shopping, which is a good skill with all the vendors in Tyson Wells, not to mention the Big Tent, which opened Saturday.
Several buses came from a distance, but the white bus with blue stripes below has the distinction of having a Swiss owner. Rico has been touring the US and coming to our rally for a long time. At first, he came in a much different rig,

This week, LeRoy will be working on the awning over our patio extension. I hope there will be pictures next time.
By the way, does anyone have recipes for using grapefruit? We seem to have an abundance from friends and I can only take so many by themselves.
