Still Here

I haven't updated our blog in a while. It's just that when you are having fun, the days just seem to run together. Additionally we haven't been engaged in many activities that I haven't previously blogged about. Every morning I rise at 5am and join a group of guys in the clubhouse for BS and coffee. I generally get back to the trailer at about 7:30 as Teddy is just rising. She then disappears for an hour or so to join a morning exercise group. Then when she gets back around 9 we have breakfast...and so it goes. I know that doesn't sound very exciting but we really are enjoying our winter stay in Lake Havasu City.
For several years now on Saturday mornings from 7 to 9 am we host a breakfast at the clubhouse staffed by volunteers from the park and I, once again am the chief waffle maker making waffles to order. To maintain authenticity, I claim to have graduated from the Waffle Institute in Brussels.
Teddy OTOH spends her Saturdays with a geological club out foraging in the desert for what I call rocks. They sometimes travel up to 100 miles from here in their quest for their stoney specimens. Oh well, different strokes...

My other function here at the park seems to be the court jester, providing comic relief to the other RVers, as in, "What is that crazy Larry Page up to now?".

 I write poems for our semi-frequent buffet dinners, collect and print oddities from the internet, act as the park photographer, maintain a park directory, sometimes MC at the dinners and...

...ham that I am, this year have taken over as the bingo caller on Tuesday & Thursday bingo nights.

Other evenings we generally sit out in lawn chairs with our "Snowbird" friends, sip scotch or drink beer and swap lies.

So you see, we do keep busy with our little make work activities but even so I do manage to sneak in an afternoon nap just about every day.
