I am way behind on blogs. Not sure where the time goes anymore. So a quick recap of our last week or so.
Tuesday we drove down to Casa Grande to Jan and Bill’s for dinner and a get together with a couple of other Montana RV owners. Lots of visiting and even though Jan says she doesn’t cook she really made some great beans to go with our hamburgers that Bill grilled. I drove down and back just to keep myself in driving shape.
Wednesday was Jim’s doctor appointment. No news – just more tests. He had more blood work done and hopefully we’ll get results shortly. He also has to do a poop test to find out if he’s bleeding internally. This is all to try and figure out why he is anemic. The other thing he needs to have done is a colonoscopy. (OH JOY) The earliest appointment the gastroenterologist had was April 4. So it will be awhile before we have to suffer through that one.
After the appointment we met Paul for lunch at The District. We had a Groupon for a couple of burgers and milkshakes. Very interesting place. Not a place we would normally hang out – mainly a bar with a lot of outdoor seating. I’m sure it is really happening on the week-ends. But the burgers were good and so were the shakes.
Jim’s been doing some projects around here. Got the back up camera working again on the truck. Flushed the hot water tank and got a new anode rod put in. Changed water filters. Helped Mickey put the battery in their motorcycle. He, Marv and Ken put new batteries in the fifth wheel. We discovered the old ones were shot when the power went out.
Friday we checked out Paul’s new RV. It is gorgeous. A brand new Newmar Ventana. The color scheme is one of the prettiest I’ve ever seen in an RV.
Sunday we went to visit Aunt Happy. She always has a couple of projects for Jim to help her with. Like getting things down off the top shelf, gluing her blind rod back together, making sure all her pens write and throwing out the old ones, cleaning out her humidifier. Just odds and ends.
Last night winter hit Arizona in the form of WIND and rain. Snow in the high country. Not much sleep because of the wind but thankfully it’s calmed down tonight. It only got into the low 50’s today and just felt really cold to me. We decided the best thing to do was to go to a movie (along with every other retired person in town).
Paul joined us and we went to see Bridge of Spies at the $2 theater. What a great movie. We all really enjoyed it. I have always like all of Tom Hanks’ movies.
That’s about it from here. Hope to get togethere with a few more people before too long.
Love, love this post today. Here we are at Quartzsite and I feel like I am freezing to death, the wind will never stop and that I never want to be in the southwest during another an El nino!ReplyDelete
Yep that wind was wild alright the gust were kind of scary and I wondered if any of my awnings would make but alas all was good. we even lost power. I wonder if it even hit 50 today. Tomorrow it will be colder, Yes it's winterReplyDelete
A $2 movie, did you go back in time?ReplyDelete
Lots of news here. The wind is gone and we made it to about 70* this afternoon. Hope the wind stays away. I'm not wiping the whole house down until we are sure.ReplyDelete

Sounds like you've been busy even though you don't think you have. It seems El Nino has left it's mark everywhere. Luck to Jim with all the prodding and poking.ReplyDelete
Sounds like a busy week for you guys. I was talking to a woman an hour north of Phoenix yesterday and she said it was snowing there.ReplyDelete
Nice to see that you are keeping pretty busy, hope all goes well with Jim's tests.ReplyDelete
What a busy, fun and productive week there!ReplyDelete
We don't do many movies, but we did love that one. For some reason, I couldn't open your blog earlier, but now it works.ReplyDelete
A few years back I was supposedly anemic, so my doc told me to take iron tablets and eat iron rich foods. I hated them but after a couple of years my blood was normal. Now I don't get blood tests (or any other kind of tests) so what I don't know doesn't hurt me, and I feel great - if I can stay upright and not fall down :-)ReplyDelete
Always good to get out and catch a movie. Hope Jims tests go well and he gets all perfect news.ReplyDelete
I hope Skittlez and Scooter are keeping warm too!
No wonder you haven't posted. You two are so dang busy, who has time for the Internet.ReplyDelete
I love Tom Hanks.
A busy life is what keeps you going:)ReplyDelete
I really wonder why winters seem to get colder in the southwest every year. In 2005 around Christmas it was so hot that even a T-Shirt seemed too much to wear, and it stayed very warm all winter long. In later years we had periods of colder weather with lots of wind. Never had snow yet, but lots of rain lasting for days.Up here the North-East is having an extraordinary warm winter this year. We are getting temps up to 50F during the day and this morning we started out at 7am with 46F.ReplyDelete
We enjoyed Bridge of Spies, even if we paid waaay more than you. Brought back a lot of memories of the Cold War days.ReplyDelete
Where's the $2 theater?ReplyDelete
