  1. And the ice cream machine. Be sure to thank Dave for designing our map. So many good times.
  2. I think it served its purpose well for ten years but as most of us don't travel like we used to, it really doesn't get used. We've had wonderful times meeting up with all of you along the way and hopefully we aren't done meeting up totally. Thanks to Dave and Jeri for all their work. We really appreciate it.
  3. I miss IYQ also. We've lost a few of our group and so many of us have "settled". But oh the memories we have of the last ten years.
  4. I just want to let you all know that I am tired of hospitals and doctor's offices. Jim has been in the hospital four times this year which means a zillion follow up doctor appointments. But I brought him home this morning from this last procedure to rotor rooter his left leg artery which was almost totally shut down from plaque. The procedure was scheduled for Tuesday morning but they couldn't do it because his kidney function was lousy. So they kept him overnight to flush out his kidneys and then did the job Wednesday afternoon, He was supposed to come home last night but his blood wouldn't thicken up so they could remove the tube and he wouldn't bleed to death. So he spent another night in their company and I brought him home this morning. So far summer hasn't been too bad here in AZ. We had a couple of 112 days but most of the time its 104 or 105. You actually do get used to it. However they are saying we will have some days over 120 and I'm not too sure how we'll do then. For those of you who have explored the Superstition Mountains and Wilderness, there is a huge fire burning just north of Superior. It is over 50,000 acres and about 41 percent contained. However the winds are supposed to pick up tomorrow which is not good. The road from Apache Junction up to Canyon Lake and Tortilla Flat all the way to Roosevelt Lake is closed. Today everybody at Roosevelt Lake were under a mandatory evacuation. They figure they will lose about 75% of the Wilderness area. From our place we can see the smoke just pouring over the top of Superstition Mountains. Hope everybody is having a great summer. Check in once in awhile.
  5. So sorry to read about your daughter. Glad you guys are there to help out and I wish her a fast recovery.
  6. Happy Mother's Day to all the Moms out there. Jim is grilling chicken wings for me. I can hardly wait. We've had lots of wind and ominous looking clouds but no rain. Sure hope everybody is safe. Been some nasty storms out across the country.
  7. I am really hoping that we can have a get together in AZ this winter. Hopefully by then Jim will be strong enough to do some rving for a few days. I know I'll be more than ready. And I would love to see everybody that's available again.
  8. Glad to hear that Marsha is doing so good. We sure hope you can make it out this way next year. Jim is also doing better but he's definitely not ready to do any rving yet. So we will be spending our summer in nice warm AZ. However, this week is absolutely perfect. Highs in the 80s and lows in the 60s. The nights are wonderful. Sure miss our get togethers.
  9. We have two old dogs that we need to check on often. Both the festivals in Blythe, CA and the one in Lake Havasu are really good. Dry camping at both but really close to the venues.
  10. Merry Christmas from the Dixon's to all our classmates. I hope 2019 is a fantastic year for all of us.
  11. Linda - I can't believe anyone was offended by your need to charge your batteries at home. The older I get, the more I need that also. I was usually the first one to leave the campfires and go home because that was all I could handle. We enjoyed the time you spent with us and hope you realize that we consider you and Dave our friends.
  12. We are also staying close to home this winter. Our trip East about did us in and I really don't want to go anywhere. But I'm sure by next May I'll be ready to hit the road again. 28 is way too cold. I'm freezing and we're in the 40s at night.
  13. Toni - so sorry we won't get to see you guys this year. But I totally understand life changes. We are back in AJ - four and a half days from Atlanta to home - 500 miles a couple of days and 400 the others. Right at the moment I hope we never move again. LOL Still trying to get stuff moved from the Bungalow to the Cottage which is a chore. And changing three time zones in that short period of time has really messed me up. And the pups. They want breakfast at 4:00 in the morning. Good grief.
  14. I'm going to try that. We're in Virginia and we've been using the soap and water spray. I'll add this dryer sheets to the mix. Between them and the gnats I'm about ready to lose it.
