Lousy weather – Highs in the 50’s and lows in the 30’s. Wind and more wind
As you can see, we have made really great progress in Rocky’s adjustment to our family. That’s my lap.
We still have our moments but the last two have been over possession of the back seat of the truck. Hopefully, as we keep traveling that issue will also go away. Skittlez doesn’t cry anymore when we leave them. But Rocky likes to bark so we will have to do something about that when we get back to AJ.
When he’s not on Jim’s lap, he hogs the sunshine.
He also barks at other people because he gets very nervous around them. And we just make sure we keep him protected from other animals. He has certainly filled a hole in our hearts with lots of love.
We didn’t do much while we were in Q because I was so cold most of the time. The first couple of days were completely overcast and dreary. Then the sun came out but the wind was relentless.
We were parked next to John and Nan and had a great visit with them when we could brave the cold and wind. Yes, George, I really am a wimp. George and Susie were parked just across the wash from us and I had hoped we could get to one of their happy hours but I just couldn’t sit outside. Hopefully next year we can get a chance to visit.

We did drive out to Plomosa Road to see Barbara and Katie and we visited for about a half hour with her and some friends. Good to see them again. That’s about it for visiting.
We only ate out once at Silly Al’s with John and Nan and got to meet their friends, Lynda and Howard and Al. We got there at 1:00 and were able to find parking and a table. There was a steady stream of folks coming in to eat but it was not near as busy as I thought it would be.

In fact Q was not as crowded as in the past. There were a couple of traffic line ups but it didn’t stretch for miles like I’ve seen it happen. The Big Tent gets really crowded but I’m not sure how many folks are actually buying anything.
We went to the big tent when they opened on Thursday morning. That was a good time to go. We were only there about half an hour and didn’t find anything we were looking for. Then on to Discount Solar for a battery cable since ours was in serious need of replacing.
Todd and Michaela – isn’t this about the most perfect dog – a beagle/dachshund. I thought he was so cute.
This is a 29 Model A. The guy who owns it runs a BBQ stand. Told us he drove it over the bridge to get it to the Big Tent.
Also had to get to the bakery a couple of times. They have the best blueberry turnovers I have ever had. Friday we drove over to Blythe to pick up our mail – nobody in line so we walked in and out. Perfect.
That was the extent of our visit to Q this year. Very few pictures because I was cold. What can I say.
