Another Gorgeous Day!

It's Wednesday....I day just blends into another for us...I guess it's Jan 9th. We have been here 1 week and so far the weather has mostly been is sunny and 65 degrees. They really need some rain down here. There is a burn ban in most counties, including this one, but they don't enforce it in the campground as long as you burn in your fire ring.
This morning we drove into Sattler post office to retrieve our new GPS Xmas gift from our son and daughter-in-law..This is a Tom Tom and it talks to us..which is really nice in case WE aren't speaking to each other, at least something is...joke. We had coffee by the fire with the Seles this morning, and by noon, the sun was really warm, so we shed the sweatshirts and got down to shirt sleeves. Den is dumping our tanks with what they call the "honeywagon"..use your imagination. Let' just say everyone knows where you are headed when you pull that behind your truck. I have some turkey chili in the crockpot...also did a little cleaning,(very little). We are having a rematch of "Baggo" this evening with our friends. They have one with them, so it sometimes becomes a nightly contest.
These photos were taken last night around the campfire..the bucks are competing for the "alpha" position with their group, (similar to men, but without the antlers)..they really spar. You can hear the antler clacking and they do it right out in front of us. The other photo is the general store just up the hill from us..It has some groceries,sells beer and wine, ice and firewood. The also have a little beer and wine bar that seats 4, and a backroom with a pool table...all of the necessities of life. All in all, we are having a blast, letting nothing get in the way of our "doing absolutely nothing".
We will be here one more week, then, who knows. This place is a popular "stopping off" spot for RVers headed to "the Valley", or out West to Arizona. It is a good location and only costs $63.00 a week if you are age 62 or over..some of us in our camper ARE..and some ARE'NT. That includes our water and electric..cheaper than home, but with all of the luxuries. Actually, between our TV satellite dish and our Hughesnet satellite dish sitting side by side, we look like we are receiving data from Mars. Well, I am done boring you for now, but don't worry...I'LL BE BACK!
