Snowbird Season

Casa Grande, AZ

It's a very busy time of year in Arizona.  High season, with lots going on in and around Casa Grande.

George and Linda invited us to a party at their home.  We finally had the chance to meet some of the Bell Ringers.  It's not what I pictured when I heard this RV group was called Bell Ringers but they sure are a lot of fun.  Sorry I was having too much fun to take photos.  From left to right, me, Linda, George and Jackie.  

George is showing off his present from Harry and Carlena.  Do you know what it is he's wearing?

Here's a photo with a his food on the lid of the toilet seat.  It's a perfect bib for any senior.  I can tell by his smile, he's enjoying it.  Don't be surprised if it's seen in Lake Havasu City.

Craig was under the weather without a nurse but Carolyn drove down to Casa Grande by herself.

Later on in the week, George drove up to Sam's Club and the guys did shopping for new duds for the upcoming cruise.  There was a lot of looking but not much buying.  Linda found some really nice sunglasses that hopefully she'll get to wear next week.

Bill had a good report from his follow up visit from surgery in December.  The doctor took him off some medicine that was making him dizzy.

Leslie and WC Ernst invited us for lunch at Eva's.  Lloyd and Donna Fitzgerald were there too.   We ended up making it a very long lunch as we had a lot of catching up to do.  I had the camera with me, but never remembered to take any photos.  

Nancy Kissack and Lynn Cross drove up on Saturday to go to the Gourd Festival.  They were in the Fine Arts Building when we arrived.  They were just finishing up and we chatted for just a few minutes.  When we left  that building we never saw them again.  I guess Nancy called twice but I never heard the phone ring.   We saw George, Linda, Jackie and Doug there.  Jackie is quite talented and needless to say, this was right up her alley.

I bought raffle tickets for this gourd.  

There's no way any photo can capture the details of these gourds.

Can you imagine lamps made out of gourds.  The nice thing is the are very light weight.

I did read in Nancy's blog that she bought some equipment to try and do some gourds.  I'm anxious to see the finished product.  Maybe she'll have something completed and can show us at the Escapade.  

Mark Nemeth contacted us earlier in the week and said he'd be stopping by.  We visited with him for a while and then went out to eat.  

Jan and Paul Kelpe just called to say they arrived in town so we're headed over to the park to see them.

Turtle Safely.......


  1. Glad you liked the Gourd show as much as Nancy. Glad to read that Bill's health is not in decline and that it was all caused by over medication.
    Be Safe and Enjoy!

    It's about time.

  2. Is much fun there at the gourd show glad you enjoyed.
