Join us as we travel North America in our Holiday Rambler Vacationer,
since August 2006
      Well it was a lovely clear night and lots of frost on our car again this morning, here's a sample for you.
      Now that is enough for this year, two of our neighbours had their water lines freeze, but not us we were fine (I think we still have some Mexico Heat on board from last winter). The sun came up and was bright and warmed things up considerably. After coffees and computing I went to Ramona for a few food items on our list. I bought some Real Milk, it's nice that they clarify that, I don't like imitation milk, does it come from imitation cows ???
Real Milk !
      I am glad we are not going too far today as the traffic was very heavy everywhere. Rv's with trailers full of ATV's and dune buggies and toyhauler trailers were everywhere. Back home a walkabout the resort by the clubhouse and checking out a few more of the tree stumps that someone had carved, very nice.

     I opened our awning to let it dry out after the rains on Wednesday and we were able to sit in the sun for a couple of hours and enjoy our books. It's not quite as warm as we would like it but very acceptable considering our location in the California Mountains. As the sun disappeared behind the trees and mountains we retired inside to read a bit more and whip up a nice supper of a hot pork sandwich with mashed potatoes, gravy and peas, a tasty favourite of ours.

     Now for New Years Eve they had planned a simple get together at the clubhouse (from 7:00 to 9:30 pm, because midnight is way to late for us old folks), bring a snack to share and your beverage, socialize, listen to some music and welcome in the New Year at 9:00 p.m. (midnight new York Time) with the countdown on TV, dropping the ball at Times square.
lots of snacks
      Well all went real well with the food, introducing ourselves to the crowd, chatting and getting to know new people. Some music, then somebody realized that they forgot to hook up a satellite dish to the clubhouse TV (they have local cable) so that we could celebrate midnight with New York. Well no problem we took the opportunity at this point to go back home just before 9 pm  to turn on our TV and celebrate  midnight with the crowds at Nathan Philips square in downtown Toronto. This was actually very special to us, because neither one of us can remember the last time that we have done this. We were usually at a dance or party some where late and have missed this celebration, So we got to go to the party, socialize, enjoy the festivities, and celebrations, do the countdown to midnight and get to bed at a decent time, an AWESOME finish to another AWESOME year!

Happy New Year !!
