WE stopped in to visit our oldest son, Bryan and family for a bit. It's been a long while since we've seen them so it was a nice, but short visit. Bryan and Cheryl gave us our birthday presents so that was a nice surprise. I'll have to post mine, so cute! Ken got BEER! So he's a happy camper!
Next we headed to Eric's house to get the computer from the Jayco. Nice surprise there to see Eric and our grandson, Seth at home. Eric was home sick and Seth was done with school for the day. A quick visit and then we headed home.
Highway 50 was still beautiful and 4wd was needed in a few spots. Luckily the newer Patriot has it! We ended up stopping at CVI in Minden to see our favorite waitress and get some dinner. Early for us at 1700 but we had a small breakfast early in the am and nothing since, so we were starving! YUMMY..
The BIG news of the week!? Our grandson, Seth signed papers for the delayed entry program into the Marine Corps!! As it stands now, he graduates high school and will leave for boot camp sometime in the summer. So very proud of him following in his Uncle Russell's footsteps. Monday he will be at MEPS (Military Entrance Processing Station) for a physical and many other things. He should have a better idea of what job he wants and leave date. He just turned 17 in November.

We got the Christmas tree up and enjoyed our usual brandy and egg nog while we did it. Ken put a tree on the porch of the bunk house which looks nice when lighted at night. Hope to get him to put lights on the bunkhouse and outhouse like last year.
We decided to do something different for New Years this year. We were talking with our neighbors Karen and John and decided we're heading for Pirates Den RV Park in Parker, AZ. We're leaving on the 27th of December and will be there from the 28th until the 2nd. Ken made the reservations so we're glad they had a couple of sites left. Then who knows? They'll head home as he still works for a living.
Now for a few catch up pictures from Thanksgiving and beyond.
