wine a bit
      Oh I did forget to mention that on friday night a group of carolers from the resort, were walking about knocking on doors and singing some very nice Christmas Carols. It was so nice.

      Saturday morning and warm but not much sunshine. It's supposed to be heavy rain all day, but even by bedtime we did not see a drop of rain. After morning coffees, and a walkabout, Suzie and I walked to the large upper clubhouse for the swap meet and craft sale and checked out the vendors from the resort. Then back home for an early lunch and off to the College of the Desert Street Fair (C.O.D.) in Palm Desert about a 30 minute drive thru towns to get there. We drove from Desert Hot Springs to Palm Springs, Cathedral City then Palm Desert where the street fair is. And just love some of the street names like Bob Hope, Frank Sinatra, Gene Autry, Dinah Shore are just a few that we noticed. Along with a few of the more than 125 golf courses in the area.

      Its really quite interesting that in such a short drive we are in the desert, then a city, then desert then another city in a valley between some mountains in California. At the C.O.D. Street fair we arrived just before noon and enjoyed the walkabout checking out the vendors. Jewelry, furniture, clothes, produce, food vendors and entertainment. We found most of the stuff was a bit overpriced except the produce, this is California after all. But we had free parking, free admission even a free shuttle to the parking lots if you wanted. So the walkabout was fun and we did buy a bit of produce and sample some fresh local dates, yummy! One thing we did notice was the local people wearing jeans, winter boots and vests, you can pick out the winter visitors we are wearing shorts and a T- shirts, its only 70f (22c) winter here! And of course we couldn't leave without some fresh popped kettle corn.

      By the time we returned home it was close to 4:00 pm so we could relax a bit with a book then I  made a skillet dinner, with hamburg, macaroni, vegetables, spices and cheese, (my version of a hamburger helper) with a tossed salad and a fresh crusty roll.

      Then after supper we walked to the upper clubhouse for the 7:00 pm dance. The entertainment was very good with a singer on an electric organ/piano playing everything from Christmas carols, to waltz's polkas, rock and roll and country tunes for two hours. Seniors here, the dances are over at 9:00pm, most people are 10 to 20 years older than us as well too, but very lively. Another great day in a warmer climate then back home, life is good.
