Guess I had better start off Monday night’s post with a correction to my Sunday night post. Kelly informed me this morning that ‘yes’ we did have permission from the realtor to move our motorhome onto the property. I had no recollection of that. So the realtor did know we were there but didn’t know we were in the house. Good thing I have someone here to keep my memory on the straight & narrow.
A RATHER SOGGY START TO OUR MORNING
With heavy overnight & morning rains at times our backyard lake materialized once again in the southwest corner of our property. Fortunately none of that pooled water comes anywhere near the house & soon drains away. Would be a great temporary place for ducks to paddle around if we had some. Our rains finally did wrap it up about noon & I was able to slip out in late afternoon & snap a few photos during a brief sun splash. And as I write this tonight sky’s are showing some promising signs of at least partially clearing for Tuesday.
First time I ever heard of the JoJoba Hills SKP RV Resort was way back in 2008 when a friend we had met in the desert near Borrego Springs first talked about it. ‘Butch’ a native Californian & long time winter boondocker said there was only one place he would ever consider settling down some day in his latter years & that was over on the other side of the nearby mountain ranges at one of the Escapee Club’s own RV Resorts. He described how nice it was & how different it was from other Resorts. Butch was/is not a resort type person by any means so we figured this resort must definitely be something special. This morning I read a post by Marianne from frugal-rv-travel.com which explains very well why this resort is indeed so much different than many others. Be sure to read her review of JoJoba Hills RV Resort.
SO NICE TO SEE SOME OF OUR FRONT YARD CACTUS PLANTS COMING ALONG SO WELL
Well here we are at March 2nd already & Snow Birds are beginning to take flight. Wandering Willy is already home back in Canada tilted back in his big comfy recliner watching his big screen TV. I think Ivan may be rolling north shortly if he already hasn’t begun his trek & I think Jean & Skip will be packing up & headed out very soon as well. Due to a family emergency a month or so ago George & Suzy are already back in Ontario toughing out the brutally cold temperatures. Our Bayfield friends Dianne & Harry owners & operators of Stormrunner RV Sales & Service had to return a week or two ago to get things geared up for another busy season in the RV recreational field. Yes many Snow Birds are definitely beginning to flex their wings & scatter off north to far distant destinations called home. It’s always a tad sad in a way because one never knows if all the Birds will make it back for another season or not. Always lots of changes going on with this type of RVing lifestyle & surprises are not uncommon………..
And before I forget I would like to thank my book, my lap top computer, our Sirius satellite radio & our television for helping me through these past few rainy stuck inside days:))
GROANER’S CORNER:(( A mother takes her 5 year old son with her to the bank on a busy Friday. They get into line behind a rather obese lady wearing a business outfit complete with a pager. As the mother waits patiently her son looks at the women in front of him and observes loudly, "Hey, Mom, she's fat." At which the lady looks at the boy, makes eye contact with the mother and gives an understanding smile. The mother quietly reprimands her son. After a minute or two the boy spreads his hands as far as they will go and loudly says, "I bet her butt is *that* wide." At this the lady glares at the little boy and his mother and the embarrassed mother severely scolds her son. Again after a couple of minutes the boy states loudly, "Look how the fat hangs over her belt." The lady turns and tells the mother to control her rude child and the mother threatens him with his very life and existence. Things in the bank are quiet. The lady gets to the front of the line when her pager begins to emit its distinctive beeping tone at which the little boy yells in panic at the top of his voice, "Run for your life Mom, she's backing up!!!!"
