We spent Sunday the 22nd of October in Ely, Nevada at the KOA there. Really nice one, yes a little on the expensive side but it's there and we needed the hook ups for the electricity. The heater did a good job keeping us warm.
The cargo trailer is ok to sleep in, a little sparse and need to make it more usable. But for the first trip it worked fine. I need a mat of some kind for my cot to make it more comfortable. All in good time.
Monday morning after getting ready we headed to our favorite Mexican Restaurant for breakfast. As with everything they've raised their prices but it was delicious. Then it was just the usual drive home. We were actually almost home when Karen texted for Happy Hour. So we stopped in there for a bit.
Tuesday was a day of unloading and doing at home things.
Wednesday we headed for Reno and Total Wine, then to Carson City for a big Walmart shopping.
Thursday was basically a cooking day as we had company coming on Friday. Mason and his sweetie Chloe came in Thursday night. Didn't even hear them come in around 2330.

Friday morning we attended the grand opening at Karen's new store. what a great turnout she had! It was so packed we didn't stay long.

The Mayor was there to welcome her to Main Street.
Eric and Christina got here about 1300. A nice afternoon and then around 1700 we took enchiladas, coleslaw and rice next door to celebrate Karen's mom Izzie's 80th birthday. Adam arrived around 2200. We had way too late of an evening but it was fun.

|Russell gave me this plant for Mother's Day. We brought it
inside before we left for Arkansas and it went crazy while
we were gone!!
Saturday was a day of some taking Eric's Can Am out for a drive. I made some pancakes for breakfast along with mimosas and a bloody mary. YUM. Christina, Eric and I made a run to Karen's store to see what we couldn't live without. Found a few things, I have to admit and so did Christina! 😃
I made seven layer dip to take next door for the Halloween Party. 💙 They had "The Band Next Door" coming to play at 1830. A cute airstream catered the dinner for everyone. Chicken, salad, rice and corn on the cob. The food was yummy and plentiful.

|Have fun you two!
We all had a great time even though it was really cold! John had a fire going, along with about 10 propane heaters!

Sunday morning we got up and I made biscuits and gravy to head next door along with some bacon and potatoes. Karen made a huge amount of bacon and eggs. Yummy with her family and mine 💗💗 Mimosas and a Bloody Mary for Eric.

Yes, we have to sisters married to our two sons 💙
Eric and Christina left before noon. Chloe, Mason and Adam stayed for another night. Steve and Candy did too! We enjoyed our time outside with a fire there and in the outdoor kitchen.
Monday morning after breakfast everyone got ready to head out. Mason and Chloe were getting ready to head for her Grandma's in Greyeagle for a short visit. Steve and Candy left and then Adam. What a great visit with everyone!
I took care of laundry etc. Ken winterized everything except the Mansion at this point. Lows between 15 and 18 so it all needs to be done. Later in the afternoon we went next door for a short happy hour. John had to leave Tuesday for a 6 1/2 drive to Bakersfield for work.
Just got home from a Halloween visit with Karen. Ken and I headed to Gardnerville today to pick up his prescriptions and a visit to Walmart. We had dinner at Sharkey's so Ken had his fish tacos. Oh so yummy!
Had a Happy Hour with Karen and tomorrow we head for Carson City for a cardio appointment for Ken. We're taking the Tundra in for another 5,000 mile servicing too. We decided to join Costco for the year, so will be going by there too. Another busy day 😁
