When we first met JERRY & SUZY back in November here at the ranch for the cowboy cookie shoot-out they had asked us to come to their place in Benson for Christmas. So today, we went to Jerry & Suzy's for Christmas dinner. Jerry sent us some excellent directions so of course we got lost & had to phone him to see if he remembered where he lived. He did & once we all got our co-ordinates co-coordinated.......we drove around the block to their house.
We all sat around & kibitzed for a few hours, told a few tales, compared blogs & RV stories, & just generally all got to know each other better. Kelly & I don't socialize a whole lot anymore but the few people we do meet we always remember well. Suzy's healing shoulder curtailed her activities to-day so Jerry was the main man in the kitchen. The size of the prime roast that came out of the oven was the biggest one I've seen in years & reminded me of the huge roasts of beef my Mother would make every Sunday when I was growing up. We had a great supper, more kibitzing back & forth, some more pictures, & then it was 7:30 & time to head back to the ranch. We still had our chores to do & we knew we'd have some hungry critters waiting for us. Hugs & goodbyes & off we went into the night. We nearly ran off the road 4 times south of Tombstone while fighting over the cowboy cookies they had given us for Christmas.RICK & PAULETTE will be in the neighborhood up around Palm Desert about the same time so there may be a meeting of the minds in the offing for the three Amigos, or D'umigos, or Dumb Egos......whatever applies:))
It's late, I talked too much to-day, I ate too much to-day, but I'll be darned if I'm going to blog too much to-day, so to all a good night & to all a day of good to-morrow:))

If you're going to be in Borrego Springs the latter part of March I might just be going past ya. Where is Borrego Springs, by the way.ReplyDelete
Glad you had good company on Christmas Day.
You did darn good with that blog, Al! Thanks for sharing our day with us yesterday, and our day together with all our friends!ReplyDelete
Al, looks like Jerry has many more talents than just blogging. Who knew? I'm sure it was a wonderful dinner and a great day. We're looking forward to meeting up with all of you soon. Borrego Springs sounds great!ReplyDelete
Merry Christmas to you and Kelly! It looks like you had a good time with Jerry and Suzy-- nice way to enjoy the holidays!
