Wed. Feb 29th, Once every 4 years.

Thanks for joining us on our journey of North America
 in our Holiday Rambler, since August 2006

Where are we today ?

        We had a few calls worried that we were close to the Branson tornadoes. We are in Benson Arizona NOT Branson Missouri where the tornado damage happened the other day.    

        Another cool night, but with sunshine and a light breeze the temperature got to 85f today, love it! Not much on the agenda. Coffee, computing and walkabouts, chat with a couple people just enjoying the great weather here.

wonderful blue skies
        Then I went for a short drive about town for and stopped at Safeway for a few groceries. Just love shopping here they really make you feel welcome. Staff asks if you can find everything, cashiers welcome you with "good morning" after checking out they almost always say Thank you Mr. Yates you saved $..... today and would you like a carryout. Thank you not yet I can still manage. Here I think, boy do I look that old ? But they asked other much younger people the same, great customer service.

        We enjoyed a relaxing afternoon reading in the shade  until it was time to hop in the car for the short 5 mile drive to visit with friends Rick and Suzie at St. David Resort this is the third time this winter we have  run into them. So a nice visit catching up again and enjoy a nice happy hour. Then time to fire up our Weber for a couple smoked pork chops, boiled potatoes and a pepper squash for a nice tasty supper.
        Now read a bit more, a tv show, and call it another great day, just enjoying the awesome lifestyle that we are so lucky to have.

  1. Now you can just sit back and relax for a few days.

  2. i have noticed in USA grocery stores if you ask where something is, they will take you right to it. In Canada when you ask where the pickles are you are lucky to get an, "Isle five". That is, if you can even find someone to ask.

  3. Croft:

    I think you hit the nail on the head!

  4. Glad to hear you had a great weather day.
    It is still very windy here in Desert Hot Springs, so we have been stuck inside today.
    Oh, well, it is supposed to get better soon.
    Take care ... TnT

  5. TnT:

    We have never been stuck inside, we usually enjoy those days for a change and they are rare. Read, relax ,compute , play a game, chat and plan more adventures.
    Hope your weather gets better for you.


We love it when you take the time to drop us a line.
