Life Goes On

(Chuck) It is now Sunday and our lives will go on. We would like to give a special thank you to all of you who have sent e-mails and notes to our family. Your thoughts and prayers will be rewarded many times over.
The weather in Yuma is once again going through a warm spell. It is over 90 degrees this afternoon and the beautiful blue sky is once again blanketing the desert. To the East of us are the Gila Mountains which provide a great backdrop for the Foothills area of Yuma. Two evenings ago we were treated to another of those beautiful desert sunsets. It just doesn’t get much better than the Southwest in the winter. This photo is looking East in front of our rig. In my log it is recorded as (Yuma, AZ 13660 53rd Street, Foothills (N 32 37.971 W114 23.871) 420’ elevation).

We are planning to go to Mittry Lake for Thanksgiving. We have not been to the annual Thanksgiving Rang yet, but I have heard about it from others. It will be a Boomer group and we will have a great time together. It will be 4:00 gatherings and watching sunsets with friends in the desert. I imagine several turkeys will have paid the price to help us with our enjoyment. Jan and I will take our rig to Mittry Lake for the Boomerang. I suspect there will be twenty to thirty rigs total. It will be a good time to meet new people, and re-acquaint with old friends. It is only about 10 miles North of Yuma. I am not sure how long we will be there, at least a week, maybe two. Any more definite plans than that would cause a bald spot on my hard drive.

Chuck, your comments on your father's death were very touching. I'm glad you had the time to be with him (and your mother), and especially to be present at his passage. From your comments, sharing that time seems to have been beneficial.

You will have a wonderful time with the Boomers at Thanksgiving, and your presence will add much to the gathering. Shine on.

Safe travels,
Laurie and Odel
