Today’s picture is one we took at the Birch Aquarium back on January 15 when we visited there. We survived the big storms of last week, the weather finally dried out and we got our sunshine back. But, we may get more rain tonight.
We’d hoped to get together with Rollie and Gina last week, but decided to postpone, since the day they were coming over was the worst storm day. We rescheduled for this Thursday. It will be great to see them again and get caught up with their news. The last time we saw them was at the gathering at Buckhorn Lake last March.
By Saturday, our cabin fever was in high gear, so we got our chores done and then took a drive out I-8 East to the Viejas Casino. For signing up with their Players Club and earning 5 points each, we got a “free” buffet dinner. All in all, we had an enjoyable afternoon and nice dinner, and all it cost us was what Jim lost (I came enough ahead to somewhat mitigate his losses).
Jim had a dental appointment yesterday, and determined that he really doesn’t need to stay here longer. There is still work to be done to finalize all his procedures, but that needs to wait a few more months. He can have the work done at another office in the same dental business group that he’s using here. They have offices in several locations, including Colorado Springs, where we’ll be in May and June. In the meantime, there really isn’t a need to stay here, so we are making plans to get back on the road! It looks like we will be meeting our friends Janna and Mike in the Yuma area and will spend some time there. I’m sure we’ll miss this area, but we’re both looking forward to getting back to our normal nomadic lifestyle.
Jasmine asked me to tell her friends who commented on “her” post hello, and she’s glad you all enjoyed reading about her adventures. She also said BoJangles will get a turn to write a blog entry soon.
We want to express our deep sadness at the passing of a special furbaby. Laurie and Odel (Semi True Tales) lost their beloved cat, Luna, today after discovering that she had a large tumor. She was a very special cat who will be greatly missed.
