It's about time.

Many of you can relate to Working long hours at your career. Raising your families. Buying a home and paying all the bills related to being homeowners and parents. We're now retired and don't need all that work and expense. Now "It's about time" and what we do to follow our dreams.

Cooler Yet, Stocking Water, Gifted Firewood and Higher Winds.

Our Location today is at the La Posa South, LTVA, Quartzsite, Arizona.

Even though we were warm enough under our Bedcovers last night the moment we exposed our faces we could feel the cold air inside the Trailer. Again the Sun was just rising over the Mountain Range to the east as I opened the Window Shades making an impressive start to the day. When Kathy joined me downstairs it was still cool enough that she needed to wrap the Throw Blanket around her legs to feel slightly warmer.
It turned into a Two Cup Morning while on our Computers reading the News, Morning Blogs and Communicated with others. With our Drinking Water supply nearly depleted and wanting to check something out for ourselves we were heading out the door just before noon.
Our destination was the Main Street Restaurant that we have spoken of many times. Last year they could not get enough Dedicated Servers to work so they were only open for Breakfast and Lunch. We got Michelle the Owner as our waitress whom we also became friends with over the last couple of years. She verified that they have enough staff this year that they will be open for Dinner as well.
Cowboy Nachos.
Since this was Thursday we saw that they were also serving Cowboy Nachos like last year. Their Potato Chips are made in-house and the fact that they use Shaved Smoked Beef with the perfect blend of Vegetables the taste is wonderful. They also serve it on Rice or Salad instead of the Chips as healthier versions. Warning: There is so much preparation for that meal that it is not served during the month of January because of the large crowds they can not keep up but it will be back in February.

Before leaving we checked out the adjoining Laundromat and noted that they have some new Front Load Washers for those that prefer those.

We then headed across the road where I filled our Drinking Water Containers. One Reverse Osmosis Dispensing Machine was marked “Out of Order” and the other seemed to be struggling to fill our Containers. Then as I was securing our Containers in the back seat I noticed a couple of more mature women struggling to fill a Counter Top Container in the Machine I had just used. I Gave them a hand but it seemed most of the problem was in the Currency Department.
By the time we got Home the Wind seemed to have picked up which meant that Kathy had to spend more time inside. I noticed that Wayne and Sue’s kids were getting ready to leave so I wanted to be certain they got their Camping Chairs from under the front of our Trailer. They had already gotten them and left the pile of Firewood they had brought to use the other night with ours.

I made certain to Thank them and was talking to Wayne when we saw a couple of Sheriff’s Pick-ups heading out of the LTVA. We also noticed a Front Load Trash Compactor heading in towards the Trash area. We found out that even though the Government Shutdown affects Park Staff it does not stop the Contracted Services like Trash Pick-up. The Christmas Holiday will take the blame for their tardiness.

Transporting our Blue Flame Heater in an upright position didn’t work too well on its Plastic Legs. I installed the new Legs that we picked up yesterday before it got too late because we’ll be needing to start using it. When we get back to Windsor I’ll make Durable Metal Legs that we won’t have to worry about.
We only had the door open for an hour today because of the cold North Wind but in that short time Wayne came over with a couple of Banana Boxes so I could pile the Firewood in it. Thank You Wayne.
Kathy made Chocolate Chip Pancakes for supper after 6:00 and used the last of the Strawberries for a topping. We only have One Night of below freezing temperatures headed our way this weekend but we have Thirty MPH Winds coming tomorrow instead. Thank you for following along and feel free to leave a comment.

The Winds are starting early.

Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.

  1. Those pancakes looked good and filling.

  2. Wasn't it last year that the trash didn't get picked up for a couple weeks? Glad they are keeping up with it.

  3. It's a cold wind in California too.
    Glad to hear the trash is being picked up. It's always a mess when they let it get over full.

  4. Wow now those are great looking pancakes. Glad you are managing to stay warm enough.
