Join us as we travel North America in our Holiday Rambler Vacationer,

      Happy Friday! 

      Yes the weekend is here yippee. The working people get time off to come to Quartzsite and watch the retired people work. Yes work at shopping, work at relaxing, work at socializing and quite a few even work at selling you some stuff, some good stuff, some junk stuff but lotsa stuff.

      Well chatting with some neighbours, Al was showing me a small battery operated motion sensor light that a lot of these people have. Kinda cool, we have wanted one but they were different and much more expensive. He says go to K & B tools right close here only $10.00. So over there I go and I'm looking threw the rows of stuff and this nice retire lady cashier says, they were right over there but this old fellow came in and bought all 5 of them this morning and wanted more, Hmmm... figures. Well back to home dirt got the car and drove to Tyson Wells, wander about the stuff there and found 4 vendors, sorry sold out. Ok more places, so I check Rice Ranch none there, then down main st. to the Main Event and three large metal buildings with good deals in them start checking them all out and looking thru rows of stuff finally I found one lonely light AND its only $5.00, somebody must have missed this one. This one even has a hook on it we can hang in the bathroom or outside our door at night if we go out. Took me 3 hours of walking and chatting but, I had a mission and got some exercise in the meantime.

      Ok home in time for lunch then we can sit outside for a bit and enjoy the warm sunshine and view of the mountains in the distance, a few more RV's have left so a nicer view again.
Nice view
      About 1:30 p.m. I took a quick drive to the dump station and noticed only 4  in line. So back home I said to Suzie, small line up, lets pack up and go. So in record time (team work, less then 10 mintutes) we were packed up and back at the dump station 3 miles way before 2:00 p.m. only 4 ahead of us, sure beats the 33 that were in line yesterday. We can sit here and read our books, but in short order we had dumped our sewage, moved on to the next station and filled with fresh water and were back at home dirt all completely set up again and sitting in the sun by 3:00 p.m.

relaxing again
      Now with all this excitement today we can again sit in the shade with our books and a well deserved Beer 30. Now eventually the sun begins to set so we fire up the barbie for some juicy bbq'd pork chops, a rice pilaf and garlic bread with cheese.
yummy
       Now we had nothing to do today but were busy, tomorrow is saturday let's see what other kind of nothing we can do.
