New grand daughter! and moving down the road about a mile.

Where are we today ?
     We have a major anouncement to make! My number one son(and only son) and Jane just had their first born! Congratulations go out to them and this now makes a number 6 Grand for us! The family is growing , like wow!
      The message below is copied from their facebook posting that we really wanted to share with you and everyone out there.
      And our second granddaughter what a wonderful feeling it is to welcome more members into our family ! Such a sweetie she is too.
It is with great love and joy that Ken and I announce the safe arrival of our precious daughter:
NEKO ORLEAN STOCKWELL-YATES
Born November 9th at 7:22 am weighing 7lb 6oz.
She is an absolute angel and Neko and mom are doing well.
We would like to thank everyone who has been a part of showering us and Neko in what seems like endless gifts and love.
We are extremely grateful for the love and support given during this wonderful time in our lives.
Xo Ken, Jane and Neko

      Now secondary to this is what we did today. Morning walkabouts here in the desert I really do love it. Oh so peaceful and quiet and the desert scenery just amazing.
this mornings sunrise
moved the car to melt the frost off the windows
         About 9:30 was warm enough for shorts, so we pulled in the slide, raised our jacks and down the road less than a mile. But before we did the mile down the road, wanted to get an oil change on our coach. Have been going to this Super Lube here in Benson once or twice a year since 2006 and they do a wonderful job. Its done right and they know me too, makes you feel at home.
          Not long here, no appointments then head to the SKP Park for our $50.00 deal for one week.
the Amtrak train in town
this the pace
       We were escorted to a HUGE site full hookups , 30 and 50 amp on every site cable tv and free wifi at the clubhouse right across from us. This is a huge park, not really our style but it's a good price seeing as we want  be in the area for a while longer. Waiting for my hearing aide repair to be delivered next week.
a very large site
clubhouse right in front of us too
        So quiet, here really a nice place, spent the afternoon enjoying our e-readers in the shade. The Arizona sun is so intense, you need the shade even at this time of year.
       Then time for supper about 4 pm preheat our Weber Q 100 whip up a salad and cook up 1/2 of the smallest chicken I could find. 5.5 lbs. Freeze the other half. Only $8.00 US but still a good deal and we do love our chicken.
about 45 minutes and done to perfection
chicken and salad sure was wonderful
         Even with half a chicken we have leftovers and enough bones to make a small pot of chicken soup as well. Carcass boiled up and will make some soup for lunch tomorrow.
        Now we had a wonderful day, amazing weather, got stuff done, coach serviced and new scenery. Sure do love the lifestyle that's for sure.
         Thanks for stopping in and if you're around drop by and say Hi.

  7. Congratulations on your new granddaughter. I don't think we'll ever catch up to 6 grandkids like you guys, but who knows. It took me a few minutes to figure out how your ended up with 6 grandkids when you only have one son and this is his first born. But, that might have had something to do with the fact that I hadn't had my morning cup of coffee yet. Daughters, right? DUH

      The frost is only overnight the days usually get up to the mid 70's and that is just wonderful.
