I would think a person of that stature would deserve a cake a day for 80 days, but then that might be wishful thinking. Maybe that's a fire hazard, though.... 8)

At 80, you can't  stand all the calories and other bad stuff in that many cakes.  I have a feeling if I get to be 80 again I might only get a tiny sliver as Pat will be controlling my diet closely after this last week!   :)

A bunch of us headed north this morning for lunch at The Desert Bar. It's an institution in these parts, open only on Saturday and Sunday in the winter. Very interesting place including a funny church and a ladies restroom with a spectacular view. Thank you Henry for leading us out here. Hopefully someone will post some pictures. Most of us even made it back for Happy Hour.

We have fond memories of the Desert Bar.  They served a Bloody Mary so hot I had to cut it with some of Tom's beer.  Mmmm. :-)  A new drink was born.  ;D

I saw Linda and Dean Stock arrive well after dark last night.  Seems I  had given her directions to Quartzsite that were  a bit "Off".  All is well however because they stopped at RedEarth Casino and the rest of the story is hers to tell! 
She said we are still friends!

Linda is at the rally?  Yipee! I'm anxious to hear of their adventure to get there, Linda tells a good story!

It seems like we might need to change the date of the "Open House" as it could conflict with Terry's Ridge Ride Jeep trip.  Since the "Open House" is a new event, I'm not even sure folks are interested.  So if you are, would you let me know.  If we don't have enough interest, we can try again next year.

Tim and I will be arriving on Wednesday as we are getting stuff done here in Palm Springs.  Along with Betty's new inverter available for viewing, we can add our new front A/C-heat pump to check out.  Now the front unit matches the back unit and they are both much quieter than the old style.

At the moment we are tackling an air leak in the water pump, seems the pump likes to come on at random times day and night which is driving Tim crazy.  No water drips/leaks anywhere, but just this annoying "eeerrrrr" sound.   ;D   Then on Monday, we have someone coming to possibly put a new awning on over the door.  All of this in attempt to push down the burning desire to buy a new 2014 40' Allegro Phaeton that seems to be pulling at my heart strings.

I'll be the first to sign up for the "Open House" not just because we have all these new fangle things; but because we had our entire front living area redone; removing the couch and booth, adding credenzas and a built in wine rack....oh and new MCD shades!

Yes, Linda is here, I saw her with my own eyes or I wouldn't believe it. However, Marsha, you'll either have to come early or take our word for it as they are leaving on Wednesday.

Marsha, we had an intermittent pump turn on about two weeks ago.  Do you have a water purifier at the kitchen sink?  Ours turned out to be a small leak at the water purifier handle which meant the tank needed to keep filling.  Jerry put something on it (lubricant?) and it went away.

Marsha,

We have a very slow drip from the bathroom sink faucet. That will cause the pump to come on ever so briefly after quite a long time. You could also have a very small leak in the plumbing, perhaps the hot water heater. The connections can be hard to see so one could overlook them. It doesn't take a big leak and the drip may dry up before you investigate.

Silly ... by the time all that was in vogue (vogue: impossibly old cliché), we were raising kids, forging careers, and being VERY serious about just about everything.  ;D   But now I'm much less intense and focused on the Seahawks winning the Super Bowl.  Game on!  ;D ;D ;D

Larry and Loretta stumbled in from Lake Havasu.  It was good to see the familiar faces again and meet the friends we did not know yet.  Looking forward to a week of Friends, Happy Hours, Golf and exploring the RV show.

They are just coming and going  like crazy.  Sad to see friends leave, Happy to see new friends arrive.  Missing friends who  can't be here.  I heard someone mention yesterday that Quartzsite is just not the same without Lucy. Missing her too.

I hear that there isn't a Luau but I'll still save the pink flamingos for next year.

Jim and Ardra, thanks for the suggestions re the water pump.  We spent lots of time going over everything and found nothing.  Finally Tim decided the pump was loosing pressure internally so he bought a new pump today, installed it and voila` all is quiet!

Rally Info To Rangers
« Reply #175 on: January 21, 2014, 08:14:19 AM »
We stopped by the Ranger station yesterday to lookk at their book collection. While we were there the Rangers asked us (they saw my nametag) why groups didn't let them know where they camp. Apparently they are constantly asked where this group or that group is camped and, of course they generally have to say that they don't know.

So I promised to pass on their request to let them know, so here it is. I did pass on the info about our group, for this year.

It seems to me that a number of years ago we were supposed to tell them our group name when we checked in.  They all seemed to know the RV Forum was in Sec. 541 so someone did it!

I made a little mistake today.  Having not returned to Sweet Darlene's  for over 6 years due to slow service, I tried them  out today for lunch.  Now  Jim and Claire had just been there  for  dinner and  had good food and  got right in.

 Well lemme tell you, We arrived at  1:10 and our food arrived at 2:05.  My soup and salad was good but not worth that kind of a  wait.  The place was packed and the  waitresses were hustling.  The kitchen just was not  putting out  food fast enough.  So  now it will  be another 6 years before  my return!
