count down for mid night with times square,
10 pm here 
      We toasted in the New Year with sparkling cider, and hugged and kissed everyone here, What a great time we had and a reasonable time for us old folks.We were home by 10:20 pm and in bed by 11, Arizona time, perfect !

      This morning I slept in until 5:15 am. Wow this is amazing, mind you we did not get to bed until  11 last night, unheard of for us !
      Had a bit of rain overnight again.  We have ever seen this much rain in the ten plus years we have been coming the southwest. But heck not a problem, sure beats the cold frost, snowy weather they having back home, Yup we love this.
more water this morning
the spring desert flowers will be amazing!
            At 7 am I took some turkey bones from the freezer to boil for a tasty broth for soup. more Turkey noodle soup. (make room in  our freezer as well). End up with a huge pot to share with Melinda, Gerry, Patsy and  Bill , and still more for us as well.
this was more ofa stoup (stew/soup)
very thick and hearty
        Then we enjoyed a very warm/hot sunny afternoon enjoying our e-readers and took a few minutes to clear up the headlights on our car and motorhome.
they much better now for a while
clear blue sunny skies and a few puddles
        Around 3:30 pm Happy Hour at Gerry and Melinda's in the warm sun with them, Bill ,Patsy us and Denis and Sandy, sharing more stories and a few laughs as well.
first Happy hour 2017

    That was the end off last year and the beginning of 2017, We all enjoyed this great time here with amazing weather.
    Thanks again for stopping by and we would like to wish y'all a Happy Healthy New year as well.

Where have we been this Winter


  1. Happy New Year George and Susie! Looks like a fun time ringing in the new year! And a great way to get 2017 started!

  2. Crikey .... you sure had a great time, aye?? Mum and Dad stayed up till midnight this year. First time for years. I took myself ff to bed early. I couldn't stay awake. I hope 2017 is a great year for you both. I wouldn't mind a bit of that turkey broth to throw over my kibble.

    1. We sure had a wonderful time Charlie, glad we were able to celebrate the New year early, hard to stay up till midnight anymore. The turkey broth on you kibble would sure be tasty.

  3. Looks like you had lots of fun for the last couple of days.
    Wishing you both along with the rest of the gang a Safe and Happy New Year.

    It's about time.

  4. Looks like a great New Year's party. On to the next one for you. Here's hoping the sun returns and stays.

    1. It was a fun New Years party, and the sunshine is wonderful almost every day.

  5. It was a great quiet New Years Day here, nice to have nothing to do for a day.

  6. What a great idea to ring in the new year with the New York ball and not have to stay up for two more hours. Karaoke looks like a very fun way to spend the evening and have the time pass quickly.

    1. Being out west gives us the opportunity to ring in the New Year early. The Karaoke was a very nice way to celebrate the new year's eve.

  7. Happy new year George and Susie. May the new year bring you health and happiness.

  8. Looks like a great way to ring in the new year! There is an old school in my area called Pilot Knob, I always thought it was an interesting name, I never thought there'd be be another place with that name! Happy New Year from snowy cold Alberta!!

    1. This is a nice area in southern California , dry desert temps and very mild winter temperatures for the winter months .
      Thanks Jenn thanks for stopping in and keep warm, there.

  9. Hi George. Was trying to make out what you used to work on the headlights but could not make it out. What was it?.


    1. I bought it at Walmart about $10. worked pretty good, and fast, Good for a few moths then dow again takes maybe 10 minutes and they are much better.

  10. What fun!!!! Nothing better than bringing in the new year with friends!!! Glad you all had fun. It's been raining here all day!! We are now having flash floods. Awful weather!!

    1. It was a great day, no floods here right now,. just enjoying this mild weather.


We love it when you take the time to drop us a line.
