Happy New Year!

Mary is no longer available for RV traveling, but we remain good friends.

I’m currently in my 24th year of full-time RVing and my lifestyle is changing, For more info click Here

The motorhome is parked Shady Acres RV Park in Yuma, Arizona. I may be here until March 4th.

 

 

I’m here hiding out from the cold, wet weather. Average temperatures in January are high 69.6, low 47.6. In February, high 73.8, low 50.1. As nice as Yuma is, I wouldn’t want to be here in August.  🙂

 

 

 

 

 

 

Wishing you a very happy and prosperous new year!

 

 

It was a quiet night for me, in bed by 8:00 PM. I could have went out to the local American Legion club where there would have been lots of people, noise, smoke and lots of alcohol to drink. But I did not and this morning I feel great!

 

 

Forecast for today is sunny and 53 degrees. Unusually cold weather for Yuma!

 

 

Enjoying nice weather is another joy in the life of a full-time RVer!

END OF A VERY STRANGE YEAR.

Hello friends. And, Happy New Year, 2018.

My resolution is to make 2018  a healthy and productive year. I’ve been missing from these pages and I miss blogging. In the past, it has been my habit to photograph Christmas cards and wish everyone a Merry Christmas. It is a bit late, and this Santa looks a mite sad about it, but the sparkle is still in the night air until the sun hits the street tomorrow and we begin our everyday life anew.

So, I’ll post a few cards and at the end, I hope I can remember how to make an album for you to view some beautiful  Christmas Cards. More people are sending letters or e-cards and I do too. But the days of the real thing are not over yet.

.

.

.

.

.

This one reminds me of the German Christmas Street Fair I went to a long time ago. I’ve forgotten what town.

.

.

This bear was not ready to wake up just because it was Christmas. The imaginative artists who draw Christmas Cards have my un-dieing admiration.

Then I made the cards into a Christmas tree.

.

Then I get to toss them and do another next year. I misplaced the key to my Christmas Storage shed and had no tree, nor lights to make Christmas bright this year.

.

I could have cut the lock but I was extremely busy and didn’t. The first time ever I have not decorated a tree or put lights up. But, my friend Karen gave me a table decoration and it, along with some Christmas music, made the season cheerful. Plus, Christmas at my son Ken’s, in Reno was a blast. I took pictures of that affair on my new android phone, but I haven’t learned how to get the photos into a blog-YET.

Now for the album:

 

I couldn’t remember how to do the album of 42 cards. I’ll call Jim tomorrow and have him “relearn” me for the next time.

Ciao

Mary and I wish you a very happy and prosperous new year!

Mary is spending the holidays with her family. I’m expecting to see her again in early April.

It was a quiet night for me, in bed by 8:00 PM. I could have went out to the local American Legion club where there would have been lots of people, noise, smoke and lots of alcohol to drink. But I did not and this morning I feel great!

 

Since I’m in an RV park this year, I don’t get to see the beautiful sunrises and sunsets I used to see when parked at the Paradise Casino in Winterhaven, California, just a couple of miles away from here.

So, instead…

Here’s the last sunrise of 2014…

Recently I’ve been running blogs about my 2004 Central America trip. While here I’m intending to continue those postings while also alternating with Yuma area blogs.

I hope you enjoyed the photos.

 Yesterday was sunny and 60 degrees. Forecast for today is sunny and 66 degrees.

Enjoying nice weather is another joy in the life of a full-time RVer!

Mary and I wish you a very happy and prosperous new year!

The motorhome is now parked at the Paradise Casino in Winterhaven, California right across the Colorado River from Yuma, Arizona. I’m here with my friend Randy Vining and others…hanging out and enjoying the nice weather.

Mary is spending the holidays with her family and is now expecting to rejoin me here in late January.

It was a quiet night for me, in bed by 8:00 PM. I could have went out to the local American Legion club where there would have been lots of people, noise, smoke and lots of alcohol to drink. But I did not and this morning I feel great!

Happy New Year – 2012!

Glitter Graphics

Here’s wishing you a very happy and prosperous new year!

As we begin another new year, I frequently like to reflect on what a lucky guy I am! I’m blessed with a great family, wonderfully good health, many good friends, being a full-time RVer of 17 years and have a delightful life-partner. I’m not a particular believer in astrology. However when Mary and I met in 2008, I was curious what the stars had to say about our (at that time) potential relationship.

Here’s what it had to say. I’m most pleased to tell you that it very accurately describes our current relationship. How lucky we are! She’s a Libra and I’m a Sagittarius.

Libra & Sagittarius

The merging of Libra and Sagittarius can be paradise found for both Signs; this combination is a harmonious one, to say the least. Signs that are two positions apart in the Zodiac tend to have a very deep, special connection and understanding of one another. Sagittarius, the journeyer, is constantly in search of wisdom. Libra has a mind keen for art, beauty and aesthetics; Libra makes a stimulating companion for Sagittarius on their travels and adds much to Sagittarius’s experience. The relationship always feels new because these two keep it exciting — and yet their natural understanding of one another makes them feel like intimates from the beginning. Together they will reach new horizons in love and in life.

Libra and Sagittarius make great friends as well as lovers. They share a certain fresh-faced optimism in the world; they’re both enthusiastic about finding truth and beauty in their experiences. Problems rarely occur. Occasionally Sagittarius may hurt sensitive Libra’s feelings by speaking without thinking; conversely, Libra can sometimes be a bit too emotionally controlling for Sagittarius. Since Libra is a born diplomat who abhors conflict, they’ll be able to smooth over any ruffled feathers. These two have the gift of forgiving and forgetting quickly.

Libra is ruled by Venus (Love) and Sagittarius is ruled by Jupiter (Luck and Philosophy). Venus’s femininity and Jupiter’s masculinity make these Signs compatible and balanced. Sagittarius is constantly on a quest for knowledge of the big things — the truth, the meaning of life and death — and whenever Libra comes up with a new idea (as they are wont to do) Sagittarius is eager to go along with their partner and become familiar with this new concept.

Libra is an Air Sign and Sagittarius is a Fire Sign. This partnership is full of kinetic energy. As air spreads fire and makes it grow exponentially, this relationship is heated and arduous. Sagittarius thinks they’re steering the rudder, but Libra controls the flow of events with a quieter hand. These two are energetic in the extreme and can run together far and wide. The relationship runs most smoothly when Sagittarius can feel they have plenty of freedom and independence within the relationship.

Libra is a Cardinal Sign and Sagittarius is a Mutable Sign. Libra is an initiator; they think up new ideas and new places to go — but can change their minds at a moment’s notice. Sagittarius is flexible and adaptable, amenable to any changes Libra wants to make in plans.

What’s the best aspect of an Libra-Sagittarius relationship? Their mutual interest in cultivating knowledge and utilizing intellect. They are well-matched and will go far together, both emotionally and geographically!
——————————————————————————————————————-
And here we are, now in our fourth year together…the lucky couple!

HAPPY NEW YEAR, SWEETHEART!

In other news…

Did you stay up and party hearty and welcome in the New Year? Not me. I could have went to my local VFW with lots of noise and smoke. Instead I watched a movie called El Notre (The North…in Spanish) about a young brother and sister who flee from an impoverished Guatemala through Mexico into the United States. Much to their sadness they find the streets are not paved in gold and how difficult life is as an illegal alien. A sad but true movie and another reminder of because of an accident of birth how lucky we are.

I hit the sack around my normal usual time…8:30 PM. When I awoke at 12:23 AM for a pee…all was quiet. I feel great this morning!

The weather here continues to be great. Here’s a photo taken this morning off of my computer…
