November 23-29, 2011 – Friends and Family in Yuma

Gosh, can’t believe it is week since I posted.  So what have we been doing?  Well, mostly getting together with family and friends.
* We had a great visit with our daughter and her family and a wonderful Thanksgiving too.  This was the first time in about 20 years that Andy spent Thanksgiving with his daughter and I know it meant a lot to him.  Her in-laws, Sandy and Raul, were gracious enough to have us all there and the food was DELICiOUS!  What a great time.
* After the kids left, we got together with Sandy and Raul and got caught up with each other – A great time and hopefully we will see them again this week.
* We met up with Larry and Peggy for breakfast and got caught up with each other – another great time, great to see them, and hopefully we will meet up again this season.
* Fellow Boomers, Jim and Diane, hosted a wonderful Happy Hour on their lot in the Foothills.  We connected with old friends and met some new ones too.  Can I say – another great time.  We hope to see many of them at Boomerville in Quartzsite in January.
* We stopped to see Margie and Tom today (they are in the park) and hope to get caught up with them later this week.  We last saw them at Boomerville in January 2011.
Hmmm, let’s see, what else -  :-))).
- We went to Algodones, Mexico for dental work and then walked around to check out the vendors.  We did make a stop at our favorite pastry shop – YUM!.  Sandy came with us and it was fun to watch her reactions to the vendors – we all go thru it our first time there.
- We made stops to the Arizona Marketplace and the Yuma Swap Meet.  No purchases at the Swap Meet but we did get a few things at the Marketplace (New outside chairs – YEA).
- We have been getting to know the park better – going to the restaurant, swimming, hot tub, etc. - and continue to get our questions answered.  Today we went to the Sales Office with a lot of questions and were given the rule and guideline book (which we SHOULD have got when we joined).   And I am happy to say that that book answered most of our questions – :-))).  So far so good.
- Andy started flying his helicopter today – I think Larry got him excited about flying again.  Thanks Larry.
- I spent an afternoon and organized my beads and decided what will be my next projects.  It has been over a year since I beaded (mostly due to feeling so poorly over the last year).   Then today I joined the beading group here at the park.  It was nice to be back beading again and nice to get caught up with Margie and the rest of the girls.

And that was the short version of our week.   We are having a good time and enjoying the BEAUTIFUL weather.  We will be here until Monday and hope to do some sightseeing so stay tuned.

I will leave you with two links that I found real interesting on kindness and paying it forward:
