Hi everyone I guess I will try and keep everyone up to date as to what is happening with us now that we are back in Blythe.

As Allan indicated the trip down was good and uneventful. We had no weather at all, no snow, no wind, no rain. I even drove a bit of the way as we have a new vehicle and it's not a large 1 ton dually truck. I really enjoy driving the Ford Taurus X.

Yesterday 4 of us women decided to go on a little road trip to a place called Bouse, that is house but with a B. Apparently on remembrance day weekend they have a huge flea market (Sunday is not a great day to go though). I guess the majority of the market is open on Friday and Saturday. We did find 2 places still operating and were able to pick up a few items for our Christmas Adopt a Family function.

We then decided that since it was early that we would head to Parker, only 25 miles away, and go to the dollar stores there.

We had a really nice lunch and then hit the stores. I didn't find anything that spoke to me but everyone else did find something they couldn't live without.

I have one more week of my self imposed holiday before I start doing some work again so I need to enjoy myself this week. Only one slight problem my sciatic is acting up. Boy I have never know such pain in all my life. So instead of enjoying life in the pool and other activities I am having to take it really easy - I know - taking it easy is rough but don't forget that too is painful. I will have another massage on Friday and hopefully I will be starting on the road to recovery.

More later as it is time to get dressed and have breakfast.

We're Baaaaaaaaack!!!

Well, it is about time to update everyone. The funeral on October 28th for Dad was good, if you can call a funeral a good event. My son and his kids were there. Heck, even my X-wife was there. Dad's sister, the only surviving sibling from that generation, attended. It really took me back when I got to the cemetery. The grave stone that I had ordered two weeks prior was already in place. We left Lethbridge on Wednesday morning.

We got to the border at 8:12 and were through and leaving the border by 8:13. That night, we had travelled all the way to Ogden Utah. Thursday, we were up early and on the road again. We stopped that night in Lake Havasu. We stopped so that I could get NPG cable to check our Canadian cable modem checked out and set up for us in Blythe. When we were checking into the Hotel, I noticed that the time was 4:00. If we had kept going, we could have been in Blythe by 6:00. We had a leisurely morning and left after the modem was activated. We arrived in Blythe at 11:42.

The House and Dune Buggy summered really well. A little bit of dust (we do live in the desert), but really good. The park seems to be fairly full already. A Lot of people were here early this year.

That is all for now, so I will sign off and hope that Sue gets creative with an update.
