Free, Free for Seniors

Parker, Arizona
La Paz County  Park 
Lagoon #1

What another gorgeous day.  Sometimes I worry that I 
take them for granted but on reflection I decided neither of us does.  
Here's a picture of the Pirates Den right next door from us.  
Bill and I wrote out our jeopardy tour for an event for the rally to be held here in January for the Escapees Chapter 21 Rally.  This is the Parker Dam which is the deepest at 320 feet in the world which will be in the tour.  

As we passed over the Colorado River into California we saw this sign.  
No sooner than we passed the sign, we saw a small herd on the side of the road.

And a little further down the road, we saw another group of them.

After we finished the tour, we decided to drive up to Lake Havasu City and check with the visitors center to see if anything will be happening the five days of the rally. Of course, the last time we were there we had a great meal at the Elk's and it would be lunchtime when we got there.
There weren't many people visiting the London Bridge.  In the past the parking lot was much fuller.  

Okay, now it's lunch time and I had my heart set on the Elk's club.  We drove up to it, walked in, walked back to the dining room, looked around but couldn't find anyone in sight.  After standing there for a while, I saw the lunch sign advertised as a hot dog and fries.  I said forget it.  

We knew there was a Black Bear Diner not far down the road,  so off we went.  It was very reasonable, good size portions, and the service was excellent.  We both got the steak salad and the tri tip was good still, just not quite up to the Del Rosario's.  

By the time we got back to the coach it was almost dark.

This morning we decided to stay another day at La Paz County Park.  Our morning walk took us to the office to pay for another day here.  We drove into town to top of the fuel tank on the truck.  Diesel was $3.68  Of course, we did have to stop at Wal Mart for a few things.

We've seen flyers everywhere announcing a free spaghetti dinner for seniors at the Blue Waters Casino.  Why not?  Not only did they offer the free buffet but they had it going on from 11 am to 11 pm.  Four o'clock sounded like a good time to go before it got crowded.  We walked up to no one in line and the cashier asked us what year we were born.   She handed us a receipt with all zeroes.  They didn't even ask for your player's club card.  

The meal included the salad bar, dessert, ice cream bar, and two different kinds of sauce for your pasta.  The garlic bread was delicious.  I was glad I wasn't in the kitchen, because they apparently ran out of clean silverware.  The service was excellent and the waitresses were very busy but very attentive.  I watched two different couples who got up and left without a tip.  As we were leaving the line was growing fast.  

I think tomorrow we will head down to Yuma a few days early for the Chapter 25 Rally.
