Where are we today

         Got a nice early morning desert walkabout again as usual and shortly after 8 am made a grocery run to Blythe California, Smart N Final plus Albertson's, for a few supplies we can't get here in Quartzsite. Home by 10 and puttered around for a bit then a light lunch. Oh by the way our water pump is still working fine, looks like the issue has been resolved (fingers crossed).
          After lunch a drive about and checked the dump station,  about 16 rev's in line not a great time to go, we will keep watching and probably go later in the day tomorrow. It's been 2 weeks and we are soon due.
16 rigs lined uno right now at the dump station
          After some relaxing reading outside in the warm sun, but cool breeze was time for Happy Hour. Today is a special one, it is Gerry's birthday (Tucker's Dad) an undeterminable age but is retired,  and younger than me. Melinda had made a special meal for him today and we were invited. Pulled pork and Beef, devilled eggs, pasta salad, fresh fruit, coleslaw and his favourite Lemon meringue pie as well and chocolate cake.

          What a great place to celebrate a January Birthday, in the warm, sunny desert with friends.
           Glad that y'all dropped by and hope your day was wonderful well.
