             The wind went away and today was very warm. This is wonderful! Nice early morning walkabout and caught a not to bad sunrise.
      I was on a mission to head to the Yuma foothills to pick a a propane hose for our Weber Q From Al's rv. The old one is 15 years old and very stiff needs to be replaced, I priced an 8 foot one in Quartzsite at $40.00 but got a 12 foot one here for $29.00 at Al's Rv. Hey works for me and is much nicer.
      When I got home Gerry had a dead battery on their truck. He had left his GPS turned on for 2 days and killed the battery, We tried to boost the truck and no go.
       Tried to charge it with my battery charger and would not take a charge, no voltage. disconnected the battery and the truck started with a boost and ran with no battery. Yup needs a new battery.
checking and testing
       He removed the battery and we headed into town. But just down the road there is a gas station and they just happened to have exactly what he needed. An Interstate battery and it was good. Decent price and saved us driving to Yuma there and back about 20 miles and an hour searching.
       Back here quickly installed it and the truck fired right up. But looked like the original battery 8 years old, was due anyway.
        I replaced our old propane hose that was very stiff this one is much better to store now.
old propane hose was in need of replacement
          This afternoon 2 more couples arrived from Ontario Canada. feels like old home week here. Our friends John and Barb for Buckhorn Ontario and Mike and Dee we met 4 years ago and have stopped their full time lifestyle to become snow birds. We are all in the same area now how cool is that. 6 couples all here at the same park at the same time 2.500 miles from home!
          Now while it was still warm and everyone had their space during the day we gathered shortly after 3 pm for our social hour, Catch up meet new people and again flap our gums, always a fun hour. Sharing stories and getting to know each other. As it cooled down around 4:30 was time to head to our homes. Enjoy our meals and relax for the evening.
we all here at Gerry and Meilinda's today

            Supper tonight we enjoyed a 1/2 of a huge spaghetti squash with marinara sauce, and left over turkey, sautéed with mushrooms, onion, celery carrots and garlic. and a tasty side salad. Sure was tasty and of course more leftovers.
tasty? yup !
         What a great day we had, got things done, not too busy, warm and sunny, no wind, a fun social time and a tasty homemade supper. Sure beats the cold and snow back home.
         Thanks for stopping by and hope you had a great day too.
