Met more Rv'ers from Ontario, great weather and awesome pizza made by John !

Where are we today ?
       Just more great weather and loving it. Cold nights (great for sleeping) and warm sunny days.
       Had a question about the cinnamon bacon we had for breakfast yesterday and yes thats what we had, very tasty and different.  We bought this at Swiss Sausage and meats in Herman MO a while back along with some great sausage.
         First thing this morning, 8 am (after coffees and walkabouts) I headed into town to pick up a few supplies then back home.
         We had our package arrive at the resort. A new camera I had ordered on line last thursday. To replace my Panasonic Lumix TS20. Only 18 months old and love the camera, but the display was not working much anymore, really hard to take pics and change settings on my camera., Paid $179.00 for it in Aug. 2012, love the camera. Perfect point and shoot with all the features that work amazing. Found this new one on E Bay at a camera store in LA only $89.00 (brand new, demo model) and free shipping. Arrived this morning gotta love the great service and price too. Now I have a spare camera, extra battery and hope it lasts as long as the last one. It has taken over 14,000 pics so does not owe us much.

         So another walkabout taking more test pictures and seems to work just wonderful, exactly what I want.
           Now we can enjoy some nice sunny afternoon weather reading our books, works for us.
           But then we are invited to join in "Happy hour" to see what everybody has been doing today.
          While chatting John had agreed to make a couple homemade pizzas for us. So he set to work making the dough and preparing the toppings.
John hard at work
         While he was doing this two more couples from Ontario joined our Happy hour. One couple from Creemore Ontario and the other couple manage Sangri-La family Campground in St Catherines Ontario.
         Such a small world, all these people from Ontario Canada all the way here in southern California, 3,000 miles away from home. We chatted and chatted getting to know each other and promising to meet again soon ( maybe tomorrow).
Then is getting cool and John yells out "Pizza is done"
       Inside we head to have a nice feast of John's excellent homemade pizza.
so yummy 
good friends, good food and awesome weather
Thanks John love your pizza
Christmas cake for desert hit the spot
        Thats it, enough fun for one day, lets call it a night.
        Thanks for dropping on by, sorry, no pizza leftovers today, was way too good.

  4. Great deal on the new camera. eBay is a good shopping source. I had to replace me old one just this past October but I never got as good a deal as you did. Sure nice to have the extra battery.

    Good looking pizza and a lovely interior RV, looks huge.

  12. I wonder what is the last name of the people from Creemore who visited with you? I have cousins living there and I understand that they travel to Arizona area in the winter.
