Still the same

Don’t know about anyone else, but it’s still the same ol’ same ol’ around here. While in a normal year we would be on our way home by now, we’re still sitting in Yuma. Kansas is under a stricter stay-at-home order than we are here, so we don’t see much use going there where we couldn’t see the people we’d have gone there to see! Our current plans are to leave here about the 1st of May, since Arizona’s restrictions are tentatively set to stop then. That doesn’t mean that they will, just that Gov. Ducey has put them in place until then. Along the way, we might run into a problem finding RV parks open to overnight visitors. Of course, we could dry camp and run the generator to keep the residential-type refrigerator cold in the RV, but we’re spoiled. We like our 50 amp plug in. At least here, we have a house with reliable air conditioning and a quiet neighborhood with paved streets for a morning walk. People out here freak out about winds above 20, which is just a gentle breeze back home! Our Pace Arrow is in the shop for some last minute fixes mechanically before we’re ready to go and today, the “service engine soon” light came on in the Escape, so I guess there’s no hurry to get on the road.

I do have one very bright spot in our lives that I can share with you, though. Easter was very good to our little great-granddaughter Rae. The resulting picture is priceless!

Our miracle baby is growing up! She will be two in just a few days now. It hardly seems possible that it’s been that long. Marc and Jordan said I could share her with you in the blog, so you can get the same good feeling I have when I see that sweet face.

We are trying to abide by the rules, still going for a long walk every day, not going to the store until we have a long list, not even going after takeout food unless I’m just REALLY tired of cooking, but we have one guilty pleasure. There’s a place in a nearby strip mall called the Tiki Hut that sells frozen yogurt and they have Dole Whip, which I learned to love in Hawaii. Once or twice a week, we hop in the car after dinner and go to Tiki Hut. Sadly, we don’t get to fill our own cups anymore, just order at the door and let the owners bring it to us. Then we get in the car and bring it home or go for a ride around the area and wave at people outside. We sure hope we get to hug our friends before we and/or they head off to avoid Yuma’s summer temperatures!

About 2010liberty

Retirement agrees with us! After traveling in our 40' Silver Eagle bus conversion, whose name was Liberty, since 2010, it was time for a change. Now we spend the winter in Yuma, AZ and travel during the spring, summer and fall setting the Pace!

    Always glad to read your blog. Your great granddaughter is beautiful. I always smile when I see that your face during our Northridge services. I hope you get to return before it gets hot in Yuma, but enjoy warmer days as it still gets chilly here. Having said that it was a beautiful 72 degrees today. I am a night owl and us up doing a few chores Saturday evening about 11:30 pm when I was surprised by a FaceTime call from you. I could here you and LeRoy talking, but you could not hear me. I realized it was one of those calls I accidentally make sometimes too. It was nice to see your face pop up on my screen. Looking forward to seeing you sometime in the near future.
