We decided to go to the Wine & Hors d'oeuvres party at the recreation center last night. The RV park provided the wine and everyone brought a hors d'oeuvre to share. Potluck sounds to un- French, but that basically is what it was.
After everyone was liquored up on the free wine we had to sing Christmas songs to get out of there. They had a karoke that displayed the songs on a large screen, sort of like following the bouncing ball and singing at the same time. I did everyone a favor and didn't sing since I can't carry a tune in a basket. Everyone had a good time and were still there when we left after 8pm. Nothing like free wine to get everyone get out of their RVs.
It has turned windy and cold out here in Tucson with temps in the high 20s at night and last night there was a strong wind blowing. The slide toppers were popping all night long and the motorhome was a rocking at times. The wind is expected to be back to a manageable speed this afternoon. I sure hope so.
Gerry has plans to bake some cookies today and I am looking forward to some warm cookies and milk. She guards the cookies like they are gold and tries to keep me from snitching a couple. You have to have quick hands around her when she has a wooden stirring spoon around. I'm not sure how much longer I can do this since I've slowed down somewhat. Probably because of all the calories that I have taken on with all those cookies.
There is a food bank in nearby Vail and some of the people in the park volunteer to help out there. Yesterday they unloaded a truck load of vegetables and brought some of them to the park to be distributed to the senior citizens here. Gerry picked up a number of peppers and it looks like stuffed peppers is on the menu for Saturday night. I really like them on cold nights and hope she makes enough of them so we have leftovers. Ron & Dee C will be joining us for the stuffed peppers and possibly a few adult beverages during the evening.
Remember, let me know if you are out there to read this.
I thought is was a proper time to include some photos from Tikal in Guatemala with the ruins of the Mayan Temples there. We visited there in 1987 when we were in Antigua for Spanish language training.
