Lucky Day For Us

We got up earlier than usual today in order to attend the 9:00am coffee and donuts extravaganza at the recreation center.  They provide donuts and rolls and if you want to get an Apple Fritter you had better be there early.  We used to get there about 10 minutes early and get one but now you have to be there earlier. It won't be long before it will be the 8:00am coffee and donut gathering.

We didn't win the 50/50 drawing once again but did win a free motor home wash at Freedom Rv and also a fleece throw.  The motor home wash will come in handy as it costs around $200 for a wash and wax job here.  Nice prize to say the least.

Gerry stayed around and worked on her quilt while I went back to the motor home and did some chores.  Once Gerry was finished with the quilting group, we hit the road for lunch.  Hotrods restaurant is very close to the park and since it was such a nice day, we decided to have lunch there on their patio.  It was a little strange getting seated and it took a while.  The host went back to check the patio and then came back and said people were smoking there.  No problem, we could sit far from them.  Then he went to clean the table and said to wait at the entrance.  We followed him rather than wait for him to make the long return trip.  It was almost like he didn't want us to eat there.

Finally, we were seated and by that time most of the smokers had left the area.  A few minutes later the remaining patrons left the area and we had the whole patio to ourselves.  I had the "large" Taco salad and it was quite large to say the least.  Gerry had a chicken wrap and could only finish half of it.  We took our time and enjoyed eating outside on the patio.  After lunch we returned to the motor home and hung out.  We did have a short "happy hour" outside of the motor home, enjoyed the warm weather a while longer and finally went inside when the sun went down and it cooled off quickly.

We had a great day out here and hope you all had a great day, also.  


  1. That free motor home wash would come in real handy right now. We still are carrying about 3" of Quartzsite dirt with us.

  2. We gave up on our 50/50 after four years. It's amazing how the same folks seem to always win. They are definitely luckier than we are. Glad you enjoyed the warm weather while you could. It's pouring rain here in AJ tonight.
