Happy New Year!
Only one day left in 2006. Where did the time go? We called our Aunt Elaine in Washington State today. She has been coming to Yuma in the winter for many years but this year she has been delayed. We miss her and called to find out her new ETA. It looks like she will be coming south mid-January and by then, we will be gone.
Actually, we will only be gone for five weeks and then will return to Yuma until time to take Penny up to Oregon for her yearly check-up. So although we won’t be here when she arrives, we will still have a couple months after we return to spend with her before spring. Unfortunately, it appears we will not be able to come back to the same RV Park, the same park where we have stayed the last three times we came to Yuma. The park that is right across the street from where our aunt lives.
This park only has three slots available with cable TV. These slots are also wider than the older slots so they accommodate RVs with slides (like us). Anyway, to make a long story short they will not rent them for longer than a week at a time after we leave and the only other spaces available are deeper in the park, narrow and without cable TV.
So, we will be looking for another place to park our Penny when we return. It won’t be as convenient, that is for sure, so we aren’t particularly happy about the changes at this park but there isn’t much we can do about it. Greed is a powerful driving force and customer service is becoming a thing of the past.
My family and close friends know that I am (was) a cat person all my adult life. When we decided to become fulltime Rvers, we made a mutual decision to not travel with pets. I knew I would miss them but the cons far outweighed the pros in our opinion. Well, my cousin here in Yuma, sympathetically presented Phil and me with the “purrrfect” pet for Christmas. Take a look ….
