Quartzsite IV

There have been some beautiful sunrises and sunsets at Boomerville. Here is one of my fav sunrises


The sunsets start out pretty, progress to beautiful and end up spectacular.

The Moores did a “knock about” knocking on doors and visiting for a few minutes before proceeding to the next rig…kind of a good idea I think I’ll “borrow” and do ourselves.  Here is Chuck and Jan who were introducing Mark and Patsy to other folks.

Wednesday was the last day of Boomerville.  We have met several of our friends while in Boomerville, but hadn’t connected with Kenny and Angela as they were working the Big Tent during this time.  So we made arrangements to have breakfast with them yesterday at Sweet Darlene’s in town. 


The food was pretty good with inexpensive prices.

Kenny’s breakfast with biscuits and gravy, with eggs and bacon for $5.95
And here’s my Western Breakfast with hash browns and toast for $4.95



The other day when we went to get milk this was one of the vehicles in the parking lot….a pirate themed truck




And here’s Poncho sneaking out of the covers to see if I was leaving him alone again or not…



Wednesday we joined the Moores and Shealys over at mile marker 99 off Hwy 95 for a more informal gathering to watch the Super Bowl….at an outside TV of someone’s motorhome….should be fun. 

Last night we had happy hour….of course…at our new site with Jim, Pat, Linda, Chuck, Judy, Jan and Dean


We will stay here till Monday and then move on over to North Ranch Escapee RV Club’s park between Congress and Wickenburg and wait till the condo closes.

Remember, you are loved.

Quartzsite III

Saturday night when we returned from a presentation of funny signs at “Pace Theater” (sit outside a rig and project a slide show on the side of their rig), look what we found at home…..this is Poncho’s way of telling us “you’ve left me alone for too long”.


Sunday morning we finally made a connection with Carolyn and Roy and had a great two hour visit.  It’s been since the spring of 2011 since we saw them and it sure was good to catch up on our individual lives.  We first met them when we all worked at in Coffeyville, Kansas.  They also gate guard in the Whitsett, Texas, area as we have, so we have a lot in common and much to talk about.  Carolyn HATES to have her photo taken, so I felt honored that she allowed me this shot.


Afterwards we went for a visit to the Big Tent since it was the last day.  Sure was a different view from opening day…measured difference in attendance today.

Entrance wide open
Inside Big Tent easy walk
Side vendors pretty empty

One place that always has a line, including this time, the ice cream stand.


While walking around inside, look at the gathering we found….Molly and Bob Pinner at the Escapees RV Club booth talking with our buddy, Marty. We are all Class of 2007, “graduating” from life of work to retirement in 2007.


When we got home Jim barbecued some mighty tasty chicken thighs…thank you, Jim.


We had a full day with lots of activities…the way we like it.

Remember, you are loved.
