WISHING YOU ALL THE BEST:))

Well, it’s Christmas Eve once again & here at our digs in Congress, not a creature is stirring, not even a mouse.  Christmas day for us will be quiet.  We like that:))

---

Our first RVing Christmas in 2006 was spent in Columbus New Mexico where we had Christmas dinner at the town’s Senior center.  2007 found us in Borrego Springs California…WE DID LAUNDRY.  We were in California once again in 2008 but this time we were out Christmas day SEARCHING FOR GOLD west of Yuma.  Benson Arizona was our destination for Christmas Day in 2009 as we had Christmas dinner with fellow RVing Blogger friends, JERRY & SUZY.  2010 found us contentedly parked for a few months near the dusty little southwest cowboy town of Elfrida Arizona.  CHRISTMAS DAY WITH SOME SNOWY MEMORIES.  And last year, 2011 was spent at one of our favorite spots over the last 6 years.  We were at ‘The Ranch’ near McNeill Arizona.  CHRISTMAS DAY.....THE QUIET WAY.  I actually spent Christmas morning cleaning out a couple donkey pens.  Loved it:))

GROANER’S CORNER:((  And, tonight’s groaner comes from a reader……With the Holidays upon us I would like to share a personal experience with my friends about drinking and driving. As you may know some of us have been known to have brushes with the authorities from time to time on the way home after a "social session" out with friends.
Well, three days ago I was out for an evening with friends and had several cocktails followed by some rather nice red wine. Feeling jolly I still had the sense to know that I may be slightly over the
limit. That's when I did something that I've never done before - I took a cab home.
Sure enough, on the way there was a police road block, but since it was a cab they waved it past. I arrived home safely without incident. This was a real surprise as I had never driven a cab before, I don't know where I got it and now that it's in my garage I don't know what to do with it……
