Still Kicking Back In Yuma & Visit to Quartzsite…

Saturday, Jan 14th…just like the title, we were just kicking back here on our lot in Yuma. We had chores to get done, laundry to do, and then we just watched TV and surfed the internet….nothing real exciting here…lol

Saturday evening we met our friends at DaBoyz for dinner for Hanna’s Birthday. Knute was not feeling well, but he did treat us all to dinner…We had a great time and the food was wonderful!!

Sunday, we were invited to breakfast but decided to stay home. My sinuses were starting to bother me again. Mac watched Ball games and I just read my Kindle Fire and did some Facebook…I cooked a Ham in the Crockpot and made a Hashbrown Casserole for dinner. It was really good. I’m saving the leftover Ham to make a pot of Ham & Beans.

Monday, I woke up in the middle of the night with a major Sinus Migraine, again! I hope this doesn’t become a regular thing…. Needless to say, I was worthless all day. We didn’t go to the Moose for Wings & Karaoke either.

Tuesday, I was still not feeling very good so we just hung out at home…

Wednesday, we both had Dentist Appointments in Algodones. Mac was lucky and only needed a filling…me on the other hand need a crown on one tooth that they filling broke, and a bridge on the top where the other filling broke a tooth recently. The other end of the bridge was needing a crown. Also, I need a very small filling. Whew…I was not counting on having this done this year…. I had all the prep work done and will go back next Tuesday for the permanent Crown & Bridge to be put on and the small filling done.

Ohhhh, almost forgot…of course we had to have a Margarita!! We also had a couple of Carne Asada Tacos from Rico’s Taco Stand….they were written up in the Winter Visitor’s Guide here in Yuma so we wanted to try them out…pretty good even though half of my mouth was numb…lol

We then stopped at the Quechen Casino and made our deposit…not too much but Mac says he needs to go back next week and see if it has made any interest…LOL

Thursday we went to Quartzsite for the Escapees Happy Hour. Looked like there was about 300 people there and were told that about400 showed up for the Happy Hour on Wednesday. There was live entertainment. He sang very well.

Got to see Walt & Kelly, Linda Fleeger, Dennis & Carol Hill, Denny & Susie Orr, Jim Tidball, and several others. We stayed a couple of hours…here are a few photos from that day…









After we left the Escapees Happy Hour we headed over to LaPosa Rd to see the gang at the Class of 2007 Reunion for another Happy Hour. The guys were in one circle and the ladies were in another….we had a great chat and got to see Marcia & Joe, Ron & Linda Fleeger, Jim & Nancy Tidball, and Tricia Schmidt. I also got to finally meet an online friend in person…Bobbie Chapman. I also met Kathy Bennett, Bobbie Tumalo, Becky, and a few others…

We had such a great time visiting with these great people.

Friday, we went over to Jerry & Sharon’s for Dinner & Cards….neither one of us won, but we had a great dinner and lots of fun with friends!! Thanks for the great evening Jerry & Sharon.

Saturday, I made a pot of Ham & Beans and some Cornbread. We also took a drive around the neighborhood to look for some Lots for Rent for some friends that will be coming to Yuma in a week or so. Can’t wait to see Donnie & Karen again.

Sunday we hung out at home most of the day and then made a trip to WalMart for a few things that we needed, and then a stop at Five Guys for dinner. We love their Cheeseburgers…but the Fries are to die for!!

Stay tune for what happens here in Yuma next week!!

You did good remembering all the names of the folks you saw in Q. Did you take notes?!!!! lol...
I really think the dryness of the desert does a job on the sinus's. I sure had problems with that last year.
Hope Mac is right and you can pick up some of that interest at the casino!!
