Leisure Valley RV Park
Where does the time go? We've been back for a week and I'm still trying to play catch up.
Our trip back to Casa Grande was uneventful. Traffic was very light and when we pulled into Gila Bend to dump our tanks there was no one else there.
It seemed strange to be by ourselves after spending time around so many people in Quartzite. We had a nice leisure lunch before finishing the last half of the trip. The only hitch we had was a train was stopped on the tracks at Thornton. Bill finally did a u-turn and we came back another way.
You're probably asking why we came back so soon. Well, I don't think I mentioned this but we are working on crossing off something on our bucket list.
We've been watching Netflix and trying to pick out shows that will help with the bucket list check off. We watched the Longest Day and the miniseries Versailles. Okay, that's a hint.
If you guessed we're going to France, you're right. We are taking a river boat cruise from Paris to Normandy. This will be our ninth trip with this company. To make the trip even better, we have two other fun people going with us.
My dad had a very full life and travelled around the world. There were two places that he wished he'd seen before he died. He regretted not going to Egypt with us and also wanted to see Normandy. We'll be thinking of him on this trip.
Friday George and Linda took us to Sky Harbor Airport to the Homeland Security office to be fingerprinted and photographed for our Global Entry Card. We've been pulling Bill's chain because I received an e-mail right away that I have been approved, but his is still pending.
Harry and Carlena joined the Morey's and us for lunch. Needless to say there was a lot of laughter at the table. George likes Rudy's barbecue, so we went next door to Can't Stop Smokin' Barbecue. When I went to take a photo of the six of us, my battery was dead. It was so good to see Harry and Carlena.
Winter Blast is in two weeks and I've already have a bad case of hitch itch. It will be during Fat Tuesday and Valentine's Day. There are a lot of friends that are having medical and personal issues so we're keeping our fingers crossed that everything will work out for them so they can attend. Hope the weather is as good as it was for Quartzite.
