Quick catch up...

Good Sunday evening!  We are back home after a wonderful time in Quartzsite visiting with our friends! :) 

After a frustrating time with the internet connection in Q I just gave up.  I realize I should write notes or something in order to remember the days...but I don't. So I'll just pinpoint some of the highlights and carry on.

We had a several wonderful Happy Hours with our friends.  We met new friends, Keith and Bob and JoAnne.  We were able to spend a few hours with Dave and Cheryl who we hadn't seen in 2 years. We got some yummy food at Silly Al's (even though it was crowded..way crowded).  We visited the Big Tent once and finally got to Beer Belly's Adult Day Care. Ken got the hat and a beer coozie since it was official as we had actually been there.  Bill did a wonderful, heartfelt toast to George! We all know that if it wasn't for George we all wouldn't have been there together! He was definitely missed along with Suzie!  We certainly spent quality time catching up and just enjoying each other's company.  Time was short but we're sure glad we went. If we're lucky we may see some of them down the road later this year.  😊💗

Our spot at Plamosa Rd..

Love watching these guys!

Sunset at La Posa South..AZ has some awesome sunsets
and sunrises! 

A wonderful fire! Thanks Bob and JoAnne!

Coming through Q and the crowds

Happy Hour on a cool afternoon...

We wanted to be home on Saturday so we had a full day to unload and do whatever else we needed too.  About 1100 Thursday we said good bye with hugs all around 💜 

Not sure where we were going so we discussed Lake Havasu area. Then we were in Parker, AZ.  We love La Paz County Park and said "why not?" Not what we had planned, but isn't this what retirement is about.  We got a nice spot over by the Pirate's Den Bar.  Perfect for 1 night.  Got settled, had a late lunch and then we took a walk through Pirate's Den RV Park. Love to look at the $$$$ in vehicles parked there. Then through La Paz County Park over to the Roadrunner Bar.  Hey, it's tradition :) Had a drink and then walked back to the trailer.

The Roadrunner docking area..it's a floating bar

Around 1700 or so we walked over to the outside bar a Pirate's Den.  It was Happy Hour and Karaoke night. Well, from 1500 to 1800. Guess they think old people go to bed early LOL! We had fun watching people sing, some were really good and others..well, they should have turned the mike off haha. 

Well, instead of Harley's this is how the old
folks roll up to the bar...LOL..

Gin and seltzer...IPA for Ken

How do you like the names of these drinks..all sweet though :(

Friday morning we took our time as we knew we didn't want to go through Vegas during rush hour.  Ken did awesome once again! We spent the night at Armagosa Valley rest area.  We watched the movie "Storm of the Century" good movie but over 4 hours long! No movie needs to be that long. 

Saturday was a lovely drive home.  Got here about 1400 and unloaded a few things. Karen texted so a little after 1600 Happy Hour.  She wanted to hear all about the trip. Her girls and grandkids were over so we got plenty of little hugs and great smiles from them 💙💕  Ken and Karen made a great fire so we visited for way too long! 

Today we slept in until 0630! I cleaned the trailer, did several loads of laundry and did some baking.  Ken did his thing with the trailer and was outside most of the day.  We've had a fire going most of the day as the weather can't seem to make up its mind. That's Nevada for ya!  
Sunrise Armagosa Valley rest area! 

It's always nice to get back home, and even though we only had a few days we're both so glad we made the trip to AZ and got to see our friends. Hopefully next year we can stay longer.  It's amazing that blogging brought us all together 💗💗
Letters are ready to be mailed to Jacob when we get his address hopefully this week.

Apple Oatmeal muffins, banana bread and my flourless
peanut butter chocolate chip cookies.

Ken's got a glaucoma appointment in Reno in the am (why we're home now). More baking this week as I want to get a package out to Seth :) 

Gonna get this posted and it's time for .....Happy Hour! Have a good night everyone! Love you all!
