Yuma AZ

Catching up with old friends and meeting new friends.

New friends Bev and Charlie Wilson.  Sandy Allgire and Bev were high school friends, lost touch for many years and met once again in Quartzsite AZ last winter.  We had a little get together Wednesday evening before the entertainment. 

Mike and I have went to a few seminars, I took a couple of genealogy classes and Swedish weaving.  Mike was more interested in the technical seminars, fire safety, RV weight safety and electrical systems. He spent his days getting knowledgeable, and I spent my days having fun. 

Our evenings were spent with about 400 other people being entertained by singers and entertainers.  Lots of fun was had by all.

One of the entertainers was David Bradley and well known singer and yodeler. He sang lots of cowboy songs by the old old singers, Roy Rogers era.  He put on a great show.  The other entertainer was Michael Hargis, another singer who did a fine job, he sang country western and pop.


Charles and Nancy showing off their dancing skills…  Mike and I took a turn around the dance floor later. 

The Yuma County Fair Grounds is across the street from the Marine Air Station.  The plans fly over 12 to 14 hours a day.  They fly so low you could almost pick them out of the sky, and noisy, you cannot hold a conversation when they are flying over.  Made for some down time in the seminars.


Tonight will be our last night here, and not sure if we will be moving on to California with Steve and Sandy and Charles and Nancy or going back to Apache Junction to have more warranty work done on the MH.  A few more issues popped up, the front air conditioner is not functioning and the on board generator seems to be not performing properly. 

We picked up our mail today, I love it when we get our mail, nothing thrills me more.  Boy I'm pretty easy.
