While our temps might be in the mid '40s today, Mike, the sun is shining and there's very little wind. All in all, a nice winter's day. We hope that y'all had a Merry Christmas and have a wonderful New Year.

The movie of the day was JOY starring Jennifer  Lawrence.  She is a gem, wonderful actress and  movie did not disappoint the  5 of us who saw it! Previews showed many  additional  films  we want to see in the  future.

Richard and Linda joined us after the movie for Red Lobster  Lunch which  was delicious. Our waitress had a  name tag  James Bond.  She said her name was Mrs Bond. She said she caught all the fish of the day  but had no luck with  salmon.  She was a hoot! We wanted to  take a photo for Fred and Daisy as Red Lobster was one of their  favorites for  meals   during this rally , but we forgot  but I  did send them a photo of  an empty table of dishes!

Happy hour was held as advertised in Ken and Sheila's rig.  Just how  many people can you fit into  a big quad slide Monaco?  LOTS.  We were thrilled when   guest visitors showed up to our rally.  Camper Al and wife Nancy were brave enough to show up and meet a group of strangers they had only met on our  FVForum!  Everyone talked at once and I'm sure I could not hear  anything specific but we had a good time. 
Terry was delivered back to the campground by the  M&G service folks who  could not get it right the first time  and need to keep my Jeep overnight.  Wish us luck!

Hi Everyone,

Wanted to take the time to thank Ken and Sheila for their hospitality and having Nancy and I at their RV for our visit. We enjoyed meeting everyone and putting faces to the names we have seen here on the forum. I soaked in as much information as I could, and let them know a bit of our saga of RV hunting over the past few days. We long for the day we can park our unit and join the group for several days. Enjoyed the pictures of the group as well!

We took off a bit early from the group to inspect our camp spot we will be at later on. We drove down the road into Tucson, and located a Mexican Restaurant (Molinita) on east side of road, and ate our evening meal. Worth a trip if you want to leave camp and fairly close by in the 10,000 block.

Sharps will not be going. I have been there twice and Linda still has no interest in telescopes/astronomy.

Happy New Year to all.
An early dinner at local Mexican restaurant  Mi Tierras was a hit .  Terry took  photos of each table.  Sadly  Richard and Linda were under the weather and did not attend  festivities this evening but we will catch up with them  later!

We thank our hosts Margaret and Henry and Ken and Sheila for opening their rigs up to  the group for a  party tonight. Betty  provided games, Debbie provided a selfie stick and Ann provided the crayons. Someone  provided champagne and I enjoyed it !

Hike in morning at 10 am  ugh....

A few New Year Eve photos
Picture ending 850 is an attempt by Betty to get a selfie of herself and Sheila using Debbie's selfie stick. It failed as they were laughing too much. Later Debbie got in the act helping them, unfortunately that picture didn't turn out (I think I was laughing too much). But the whole thing was a really good laugh.

Happy New Years to all.

Nice to see some familiar faces and new ones as well and that everyone is having such a good time.  It certainly brings back many wonderful memories of times past, and that is what you are doing now, making memories for the future.  Wish we were still with you all, but time marches on and all good things must come to an end.  In the meantime, hang on to the memories and the friends you are making.  They are such a blessing later on.

Daisy said exactly what I was thinking.  We miss our "old" friends but enjoy seeing all the new faces.  I know this will be a good year because Terry is barefoot.  I become really concerned when he wears shoes!  ;D

After hiking on a  beautiful day we decided we needed to eat again.  So off we went to  Marisco Chichuachua's for some  Mexican Seafood.  We had seafood gumbo, grilled shrimp, fish tacos, shrimp cocktail, chicken fajitas and lots of extra garlic!

We were happy campers!
