Welcome to 2020! I’d like to say all the issues with pictures have been resolved, but that’s not the case. We’re still here, though, and there are still people who want to hear about what’s up with us, so here I am, pictures or no pictures!
We went to church on Christmas eve and on Christmas morning, after opening our stockings, we got ready for company. Three couples we know who don’t have family close by came over for LeRoy’s chili and my potato soup for lunch. Everyone brought something and we had an enjoyable day. None of our guests knew each other, so imagine our surprise when we found out that one of each couple had Native American heritage. And even more surprising, two of the women discovered that they are second cousins! They grew up not far apart but had never met or even heard of each other. Small world indeed.
We spent New Year’s eve with Wilbur and Laura Bradbury, several of their neighbors and an Eagle bus couple who happened to be in town. We had a fun evening and even though we were home by 9:30, midnight came anyway and we woke up in 2020. We expect exciting things this year!
We’ve had a very decent side-by-side refrigerator ever since we moved into the park model a year ago. I just really wanted a bottom freezer style, and I found one on a buy/sell/trade site one day last week very reasonable priced. While we were checking out the new location of LeRoy’s favorite store, Harbor Freight, I got a call back and we went to see the refrigerator and decided to buy it. At our age, rounding up enough able-bodied guys to move two refrigerators around, one in and one out of our house, is interesting! By the end of the day, though, the new one was in place and operating and by the next day, the old one had gone to the home of someone who didn’t have a working fridge, so everyone was happy.
One of the guys who helped with the move was Marcel, the gentleman from Alberta, Canada who is renting the other side of our lot. With his RV and large enclosed trailer, our park model, RV and dune buggy, we’re pretty much full!
In just over a week, the Silver Eagles will be having their annual rally in Quartzsite and we will be going there for a few days. Even though we no longer qualify to be voting members since we sold Liberty, LeRoy is still president until the election results are official. We’ll be glad to relinquish the large coffee pot and the tub of supplies to the new president!
We have purchased tickets for a February trip to Hawaii to visit Robert and Shelly and we’re very excited about that. We haven’t seen them in a couple of years and we’ve never been to Hawaii. Shelly has been making a list of things for us to do while we’re there. They’ve already checked out all the sights to see and the food to eat, so we shouldn’t be bored or hungry! We aren’t quite counting the days yet, but close.
Happy 2020, everyone! Have a wonderful month, year and decade!
