Thank Goodness for Friends and Happy Birthday Rocky Joe

Yuma, AZ   Finally – beautiful weather.  High 76  Low 53

Every morning we are treated to these beautiful sunrises and I never get tired of watching them change colors.



Love the reflection in our windows.


On February 1, Rocky Joe turned 13. He is 100% Jim’s dog. He pays absolutely no attention to me unless it’s time to eat and he knows I’m the one with the spoon.

Happy Birthday Big Boy. Sure am glad you joined our family.


I am really out of it some days. Went off and forgot our passports (this is the second time I’ve done this). Called Ginny and she overnighted them to Ray for us. He went to the post office to sign for them and it is so very much appreciated.

We got to go to dinner with Ray and Cindy at Chicken on the Run. One of those Mom and Pop type places with really great broasted chicken. Both Cindy and Jim wanted hush puppies but they were out of them. Just may have to go back again. Thanks for the pictures.


We also had to buy two new batteries for the Bungalow. Our other batteries weren’t even three years old but they were both dead when Jim had them checked. We are now up and running again.

Saturday I have an appointment to see a dentist in Algodones about getting a new bridge and a possible root canal. Wish me luck. I really hate going to the dentist. (This part of the plan definitely changed but that will be a new blog post.)


  1. So nice that Ray and Cindy were there to help you out, They are a supper couple, they were there last year to pick us up from the airport when we had to fly home. Broasted chicken? Love good broasted chicken , think we need to check it out, thanks for the tip, Good luck with the dentist.

  2. Checkout Ajo with Google Earth to see how big the copper mine is next to the town. Huge piles of tailings in the area. The town square in Ajo is neat. Have fun.

  3. One of the great things when we were fulltiming without a toad was we never left home without something important. :)

  4. Awesome sunrise! Makes one want to sit back, take a deep breath and absorb it all in. Happy Birthday Rocky Joe!

  5. Oh I love that photo of the reflection in your window. Gorgeous!
