BORREGO SPRING’S CHRISTMAS CIRCLE DIDN’T LOOK QUITE AS NICE THIS YEAR WITH A NUMBER OF TREES RECENTLY TRIMMED WAY BACK
Hadn’t intended starting my day off with a burg and fries beakfast but that’s just what I did. Hadn’t intended on going anywhere today either but we ended up taking the Jeep into Borrego Springs then coming back and moving the whole rig to a new location.
NOT SURE WHAT THIS BIRD WAS AT CHRISTMAS CIRCLE BUT I LIKED IT’S CALL……MAYBE A MEXICAN BLUE JAY
Our Verizon signal which was poor at best continued to become poorer so we made the decision this morning to find us another location. With Kelly’s Blackberry with us we set off in search of a better Verizon signal location and found one. Decision was made to move but not before taking ourselves for a short Jeep drive into Borrego Springs and beyond first.
SATURDAY MORNING IN DOWNTOWN BORREGO SPRINGS CALIFORNIA
Curious about how many boon-dockers were at Rock House Road we headed over that way for a look see. Surprised to not see as many RV’s as as I had expected to see but once the Quartzsite fiesta wraps up I’m sure there will be a stampede of RV’ers back to Road House Road. I’m guessing maybe 20 rigs in there now which could very well double by next week at this time, Around the corner Peg Leg Smith’s boon-docking parking lot had maybe 10 rigs but they will soon be jammed up and jelly tight in there too. A lot of Canadians seem to flock to Peg Leg.

Heading back into Borrego Springs we stopped at Jilberto’s where Kelly had a breakfast Burrito and I happily had my annual burger and fries, I usually only ever drink one pop/soda a year and that is a tall cold glass of Root Beer at Jilbertos. Great burg and fries and a super great Root Beer.
JILBERTO’S HASN;T CHANGED ONE IOTA SINCE THE FIRST TIME WE WALKED IN HERE IN LATE DECEMBER OF 2007
ALWAYS THE SAME PRETTY WAITRESS TOO:))
ADIOS JILBERTO’S AND THANKS FOR ALL THE GREAT FOOD AND MEMORIES THESE PAST 11 YEARS AMIGO…….
From Jilbertos we slipped over to Christmas Circle for a romp on the green grass. That is also a tradition with us and we’ve been doing it for a long time now. I haven’t taken my usual flood of Borrego Springs photos this time but in case anyone is interested just type ‘Borrego Springs’ into my blog’s Search bar at the top of the right hand column and that should bring up all my Borrego Springs posts and photos over the years.
HAVE ALWAYS LOOKED FORWARD EACH YEAR TO SHUFFLING OUR FEET ON THE GREEN GRASS AT ‘CHRISTMAS CIRCLE HERE IN BORREGO SPRINGS
It was late morning when we arrived back at the rig and right away set about packing things up for our next destination. We were soon on the road and soon at our next spot setting things up all over again. Our Verizon connection is much, much, faster and we have a better cell phone connection. And not another RV in sight for as far as the eye can see. We were soon back into our recliners for a long afternoon’s rest. Despite taking our reader suggested vitamins tiredness and lack of energy has been our biggest bug-a-boo so far this trip plus Kelly is experiencing some of her liver disease related symptoms so for now we’re just hanging out, keeping a low profile, and taking things one day at a time.
ONLY THING OF INTEREST IN THE AIR ABOVE US TODAY WAS THIS LARGE PROPELLER DRIVEN MILITARY AIRCRAFT
THIS IS OUR 3RD LOCATION IN 2 DAYS
THAT LONG ONE MILE STRETCH OF BORREGO SPRINGS DRIVE IS CALLED ‘THE TEXAS DIP’
GROANER’S CORNER:(( Three elderly people were talking about what their grandchildren would be saying about them fifty years from now. "I would like my grandchildren to say, 'He was successful in business,'" declared the first man. "Fifty years from now," said the second, "I want them to say, 'He was a loyal family man.'" Turning to the third one, a lady, he asked, "So what do you want them to say about you in fifty years?" "Me?" the third one replied. "I want them to say, 'She certainly looks good for her age.'"
What's the difference between people
who pray in church and those who pray in casinos? The ones in the casinos are serious.
Years ago George W. Bush was getting off of Airforce One in Israel, when he walked passed Moses, who didn’t seem to notice him. He turned to Moses and said, I am George W. Bush, the President of the USA, the most powerful nation on earth. Why didnt you greet me? Moses replied, The last time I spoke to a bush, we starved for 40 years!
