Liza, We think the area beside  Jeff's coach in Blue Lot Row 1 has the most space for a large circle of chairs.   Bring yours down  and we'll gather at  4pm . Now we have not yet asked Jeff if this is ok but he is always up for a gathering!

Sorry Jeff. I suggested your space because its the largest and doesn't have dirt like ours.

You love having company, right! VBG

Good question!  I am out walking off that 28 point poor choice (but delicious) meal I had at Tony Roma's last night.  At  9am I am off to Zumba class.  Ya gotta do what you  gotta do!

I saw Betty's coach this a.m. while walking Gordon. I assume that Jeff's is close by (haven't seen the new one yet). I think we'll eat a big lunch so I don't have to worry about fixing dinner between Happy Hour and Bingo. Or I may just fix the "Muffin-Top-Banishing Bean Burgers" they're fixing on Today.

I volunteered to have happy hour at our site sitting around our beautiful sewer opening, but for some reason that I still can't understand, everyone preferred Jeff's spot. What's up with that?

Hey, Randy, we're all sick anyway so why not sit around your sewer ? And just wait until Sunday when they all want to get close to your sewer hole to dump !!

Jerry and Ardra arrived yesterday at the rally site in time to see everyone at the end of happy hour, but after the photo was taken.  We're in Gold YELLOW Lot (the row of double palms) in the first site next to Gate 6.  We picked up our packet this a.m. and are figuring out what we want to see and/or do.

The wind has really picked up and dust is blowing so visibility is so bad we can't see the mountains.  Jerry's been out doing his good deed by giving breathing masks to some of the people who have to work outside.  The lady at Gate 6 put hers on immediately and is still wearing it.  No sense breathing the dust if you don't have to do so!

Wendy - Sorry we missed your milestone celebration (not to mention the yummy ribs).  Hope you have a wonderful seventh decade!  ;)

Terry's weather machine captured wind speeds of  33mph!  Trash all over,  dirt in air!  Announcements were made during seminars about awnings (if  out should be pulled in.) 30% of room vacated.  Now who comes to the desert and leaves with their awning out? Mats blowing  around. 

 We are hoping the 4 pm parade is  cancelled so we do not have to endure this misery outside.  Or better yet we are hoping the wind quits!  It is rough on those vendors who have outside eating booths.  Food blows right off plates.  Not a good thing for business. We are tucked  cozily inside our motorhome having  lunch.  Life continues  to be good.

Assuming the parade is on, where do you plan on sitting to watch it?  We're right on the route (next to Gate 6 in the Yellow Lot) and it's cement in front of us if you don't another another place planned.  Ten minutes ago the mountains were clear and now I can't see them again.  The palm trees over by the exhibits look just like the flags - flattened and blowing straight out!

True to his party self, Jeff came  next door to our  coach at 4 pm and announced in lieu of the cancelled  parade the RVForum group would have a happy hour.  (I think he knew  Randy was  was bringing red wine.)   Jerry and Ardra tried to call me but because it is polite to silence your phones during seminars, my  phone took a message. They showed up anyway!  Pat D, still recovering from  a hacking cold, took a nap.  We tried knocking on their door and since there was no answer, we  decided  she needed the rest! Russ declined the phone call invitation citing "he does not feel well enough."Party animals, Ray and  Liza showed up in anticipation of an event and  despite having to wait in their car until something happened, had a good time after a visit to  Randy and Debbie's  RV. No one told us they were next door!

 Prior to the Happy hour, Terry and Ken assisted  Chris in getting  TV reception ( despite the fact they  are parked under  a concrete auditorium). They were successful in getting Chris and Mimi TV  but Chris and Mimi need to recover from a series  of recent events in order to attend Happy hour or  dinner out!   I'm sure they will be  100% by   tomorrow!

I have never been to  an RVForum Rally where so many  people in our group  were so sick.  Hacking, coughing aches and fortitude is  the  norm! Barb and Frank were no shows, considering her condition on a drive by visit yesterday that was a good idea. Jerry  F has no symptoms. (yet)  I feel pretty well but the dizzy spells must mean an inner ear something.  Where were  Mike and Wendy and  Bernie and Marlene?  No clues? Probably smart to stay warm in their rigs! Got a cal from Bill and Corinne.  Stay tuned for their visit!

What a rally.  It was 53  degrees during our Happy Hour and yet we had a wonderful time!  Who can tell others about this RV lifestyle?  Wuss by Wuss folks disappeared  to go home for dinner and we will meet up at 6:30 to head for the evening entertainment. No photos from me.  Ya had to be here!

I just arrived in Indio, a day behind schedule.  Spent yesterday and this morning at our Mojave transmitter.  It's on the valley floor where Hwy 58 leaves the Tehachapi Mtns, and when I got there at 9 this morning it was 31 degrees and a there was a solid curtain of white at the foot of the Tehachapi canyon.  In spite of a 40-50 MPH wind, as soon as it hit the valley floor it dispersed into nothingness, so at the tower it was clear, cold and windy.  A mile to the west there was snow coming down and on the ground.

Anyway, I have a little work to make up tomorrow morning then I'm available for the rest of Friday and Saturday.  I'm hoping to get a day pass to come to the Rallye on Saturday - do I need a pass to show up for happy hour tomorrow?   Or will there be a Happy Hour tomorrow?

The Alley Cats were a big hit  for entertainment tonight!  The doo-wop music and lyrics were so familiar! Just loved them...

Lou we will likely have  a  Happy hour each evening at 4 pm .

Let's hope it warms up this afternoon, it is downright chilly out there this morning.
