I had a lot of plans yesterday, but time got away from me and I didn’t get much accomplished. Sometimes that happens.
The first thing on the agenda was running a few errands during the day, and then back at the Elks lodge campground we walked over to the host’s site for a quick visit. They were hosting an informal happy hour and we chatted with folks for a few minutes and then came home because Terry’s parents, Pete and Bess Weber, were coming over for dinner.
I also went up to the lodge to settle our bill, since we paid for a month when we arrived, which was up on Tuesday and owed for the extra day. Like many fulltime RVers, I’ve been a member of the Gila Bend, Arizona Elks lodge for fourteen years, but while we were here I transferred to the Show Low lodge. The dues are the same, and I’ve not been happy with the Gila Bend lodge for a while now.
We had a nice visit and Terry made a delicious meal of broiled basil Parmesan salmon, garlic mashed red potatoes, and steamed broccoli. It was absolutely delicious, as were the homemade cookies we had for dessert. Before her parents left Terry made another big batch of cookies to send home with them.
As I said in yesterday’s blog, I wanted to be sure the new wheel we had put on Monday would solve the problem of the leaking tire. It did, so today we’re going to roll those wheels! We’ve got a bad case of hitch itch, so we’re headed for the Las Vegas Thousand Trails, where we’ll be for a couple of weeks while I work on the new issue of the Gypsy Journal.
We’re not gamblers, but we do like people watching, and Las Vegas is a great place to do it. And who knows? We may even hit a buffet or two while we’re there!
