Sunshine, warm day and fun here....

Where are we today ?
        Hey we had lotsa sunshine this morning and think it will be another awesome day! Coffees and computing waiting for the sunrise, then a few walkabouts the resort gonna be a great day I can tell.
        First on the agenda was to take Suzie to the Chiropractor in town she would like an adjustment. Got an appointment for 8:45 am. She feeling better and now we can carry on. 
        Grabbed our 18 already read books, that have to exchange. Two spots in town, first place picked  up a few books.  The next place took all the rest and gave us more credits got even more books. 
        We ended up with 18 more really good books (that we like) up paying $47.00 ( about $3.00 a book) in total will keep us going for a while. No we don't want a kindle (or whatever) we do love our paperbacks and exploring new places to exchange books, thats something we really enjoy. Suzie has an 8 page access data base of books we have read and books that we enjoy.
a few more books to our library
        I spent some time with sending a few emails out to various places to try and find new door hinges for our coach. with the help from Betty at Cates and Hill Rv just down the road. So helpful Betty is.
         Then helped John replace the electric burner for the hot water tank in their coach. Before we know it time for Happy Hour. But overcast and gonna rain .
old burner is toast
        Inside their house for a bit and compare our days. Suzie got her doggie fix (bonus). Then the rain stopped we had a nice rainbow.
Hank, Piper and Suzie= Doggie fix
nice rainbow
         Now stopped raining and we can fire up our Weber Q, perfect! Grill a couple Bacon and Cheddar Potato Bratwurst we picked up in Missouri, taters in foil with onions, steamed broccoli and fresh french bread.
quick and easy
sure hit the spot and so tasty!
       That was our wonderful sunny Arizona day=75f. ( have I said we love Arizona?). Hope you had a good one too.
         Thanks for stopping in for a peak, come on back we having fun here.

  1. That sure beats the weather you were having just a few days ago. We find a lot of book exchanges right in the places we stay. I have the Nook but still like to hold a book in my hand too. There's just something about a regular book.

  3. LOVE reading too! But have succumbed to kindle on my iPad. Still would rather hold a book in my hands but no room at the inn and now I don't have any books to exchange. All a sad state of affairs. Lovely looking bratwurst…...

    1. Too bad you don't have room, a real book is so nice.

  4. We had a gorgeous day also. Thank goodness. I have a Nook but don't use it very often. I also have the Kindle app on my phone which I use it when I'm sitting in the doctor's office waiting for Jim. Otherwise I want a book. There's a laundromat here in AJ where they sell books 3 for a buck. They have a lot of the same authors that you have. And we read about the same types of books. We also have a huge book exchange here in the park. Love it.

  5. Even though I don't read that much any longer … my ol eyes and my attention span of a gnat keeps me from focusing … BUT I do love … when I traveled … going to a town's library and exchanging or buying their book sale books… great fun
    I love bookstores … especially the Mom and Pop ones… I have no desire to get a Kindle either. I can download on my iPhone or Mac but that's one old fashioned concept I still embrace.
    aw… Hank, Piper and Suzie… glad she got her bones popped… LOVE the rainbow!

    75 Degrees??? oh, puhleeese

  6. Great selection of books. I have read many of them and love most of those authors. I agree, nothing is better than a book in the hand....unless you have a glass of wine in the other hand :)

    1. We trade a lot of books in various parks, picked up quite a few for $1.00 each, but are fussy readers, some times we need to pay a little more, but really cheap entertainment.

  9. Read, read, read. That's my idea of a great retirement - with RV travel, new friends, lots of free time.

  10. That was quite the haul of books. Those will keep you busy for a good while. Those RV book exchanges are good too!. And we do find the odd book store open to exchanges. Hard to beat that! I have an ebook reader but much prefer to hold the real thing when reading.

    1. We went to the two book stores in Benson that do exchanges, pretty good deals we got. The one store takes some and the other will take all the rest and give us good credits.
