Since there's no way to "like" a post here on The Forum, we have to actually go in make a post. So while I "like" what Ken and Betty have posted, I actually have to say that I agree with them about everyone having a good time, about sore body parts (I won't be walking long or far today) and about how we should add this event to future Forum New Year celebrations. It was great to be able to share in such a good time with such a "happy" group. Or was it the good time that made the group happy? Whatever, it was fun.

Betty, it looks like you guys are having fun as always, in spite of the cool weather. Although I see Terry and Frank are in shorts so it can't be to bad. We'll hold down the fort here in Surprise, as we wait for friends to arrive from Mn tomorrow.

We're looking forward to the trip over tomorrow and we're bringing our 17 year old daughter, Andi Jo, with us. Unfortunately, some rain and a cold snap that's hitting San Diego tomorrow will be right on our tail. I know you folks in MN are laughing and wondering, "How bad can a San Diego cold snap be?" I make no excuses. We're just going to be lucky enough to make it over the mountain pass ahead of the storm, because the snow level will be at 2000 feet. See you guys tomorrow.

After all these years it took awhile to find a way I could bowl with a body that isn't still 20.

Oh so true!  Here it is about 24 hours later and I'm starting to remember a few muscles I had forgotten are muscles!  It was fun and we were surprised at how well we did after 55 years which is about the last time either of us went bowling.  Most of us didn't know how to operate the new electronic scoring system and had long forgotten whatever rules there are in bowling.  But that didn't stop this intrepid group.  Definitely plan to try it again next year!

Well the plan for  8 of us  last evening was to return to the Harvest Moon Restaurant ( following 3 successful trips last year) and then  off to a movie.  The  party of  8 was seated right away at 5:08 pm , still plenty of time to make a  7:15 movie.  Well the service was slooooooow and food not  hot  nor  tasty nor even close to the  level as  last year.  So sadly  it does not make our recommendation for next year.

We missed the movie as checks still had not arrived and when the checks did come we were charged  20% for our "service."   But the company was grand and we got to  welcome our international RVForumites  Val and  Monica from Brazil. 

Terry showed  the first  Hobbit Movies in our rig until I could no longer stay awake!  Life is good!

So many "framily" members there, but sadly we are not. So close, but yet so far.  We wanted to wish all of you a very happy new year tonight!  Wish we could be there to celebrate with you.  Hopefully, we will make a day trip down to Indio to see those of you heading there next. 

Happy New Year,

Additional note on today.

If anyone else has something planned that others might join, please post it on the forum. This could incluide an alternative restaurant for dinner.

There is no happy Hour scheduled because of the weather.

Also attached is a photo of the breakfast group.

Did anyone get pictures of the dinner yesterday. I was too busy eating!!

Sheila, you were a genius to have the chicken dinner yesterday when we were in lovely sunshine at this time.  I wouldn't be surprised to see snow on the higher peaks above us tomorrow morning!

My weather station has the barometer rising and tomorrow should be cool but nice according to the online forecast.  Are we planning to go on our New Year's Day hike in the desert?

Hi all......Happy New Year!
We are in Bullhead City now and had a wonderful albeit COLD winter storm this am....a nice covering of snow to go along with it. I know, "snow" not a novelty to many but those of us from Southern Cal don't get to see it falling often, so it was Fun for a day! :-)
Hope everyone is doing well....

The New Year was greeted with SNOW here at Catalina SP!!

But we all had fun.

I did have to use a broom to bounce snow off the door awning so it could be closed.

 A Happy New Year to all. Welcome  to 2015.  I tried to capture photos of all New Years Eve Participants but  in the  trips from one  RV to another I managed to miss Frank and Barb,  Kim B,  Jeff and Sue, Chet and Laurie.

This was a first as it snowed during our  New Years celebration.  Most of us  put on our rain coats,   to manage the trip from  one rig to another!  Some drove their cars the  100 feet or so!

Thank  You so much to our hosts, Ken and Sheila, Henry and Margaret and Team Lola, Larry and Loretta for hosting our New Year's Eve celebrations in their  beautiful  motorhomes!  Thank you to me for  taking photos and   making the women wear hats!

Thank  You to Linda Stock for  your   donation of a bottle of champagne to toast Russ this special evening! The  champagne was delicious as several of us were able to make a sample.  Well maybe only a few of us had a bunch!

Photos to follow....

So my  plan at 12:08 New Years  night is to  go to MockingJay Movie at 10:30 am in morning and then  girls who choose will see Wild at 1ish  and Randy wants to go too.  Weather permitting we will hold a 3 pm Happy hour and a New Years Hike on Jan 2 unless you want to go  Jan1  and miss all the movies.  This is a do your own thing rally .

Happy New Year!
