Two Trips To Parker

It was past time to do laundry in our household—the laundromats  in this area are very busy and I dislike having to fight for washers and dryers so I bit the bullet and left the rig before 7am.  My early departure paid off and I was walking out of the laundromat around 8:30.  Stopped by Wal Mart and the local Safeway store for a few groceries before heading home on this beautiful, sunny day.

Fixed some lunch and began to go through the mail I picked up at the post office in Bouse.  Michael was busy working on getting our new inverter installed (don’t ask what happened to the other “new” inverter he installed a few weeks ago). 

I got a couple squares quilted on my Aunt Marg’s quilt when Michael came out and said we needed to go back to Parker, our friend Dottie had called and the router we had ordered from the 3G store had arrived at her house in Parker.  So, off we went with the top down and Emmi along for the ride.  We had a nice visit with Dottie and Curt before heading back across the desert.  Stopped at the Bouse post office and picked up a package which contained my eagerly awaited new sandals.

It was my turn to cook dinner and I was using a recipe Jim had found from the Costco magazine—a garlic/tomato shrimp dish turned out marvelous!  We served it with orzo, grilled asparagus and a salad, YUM! 

Jim and Ellie had errands of their own to run today and while having lunch in a Mexican restaurant in Quartzsite, another couple said to them, “are you Jim and Ellie?”  Becky and JD are RVers, almost retired and almost full timers who had been reading both our blogs.  They live in Flagstaff and had come to this area for the long weekend.  After dinner they joined us around the campfire for s’mores and good conversation.  This RVing world is getting smaller and smaller! 

We watched a portion of the Olympic  opening ceremony and felt the sadness of the team from Georgia who lost their teammate in the luge accident today. 

It was a beautiful day in the Arizona desert—this retirement life is tiring me out—I’m ready to slow down!

Solar Panels Look at the size of those solar panels which powered the operations at the Castle Dome City we visited yesterday.  A RVer’s dream!
