My brother Ron and Scarlet came to visit on Wednesday.  We enjoyed lunch at a neat little German Restaurant downtown and then drove out to the Foothills to show them a bit of our winter home. After a stop at a fresh vegetable stand in the agricultural valley north of Yuma, we headed out to Lake Mittry. Visiting, a short hike and joining the Boomer group for Happy Hour made for a very pleasant afternoon. We grilled our dinner, visited some more and then it was time to take them back to their hotel.  What a wonderful, precious time with family. Can’t believe we didn’t get a picture!


126Thursday morning dawned cloudy, windy and warm. Twenty-nine Boomers gathered for a delicious meal of turkey cooked three different ways; on a rotary spit above a wood fire, in a trash can surrounded and topped by charcoal and a turkey oven baked. Nineteen Boomers boondocked at Mittry and ten more drove out from Yuma and joined us for cranberry margaritas and the wonderful turkey meal with all of the trimmings including five kinds of pie. An entertaining day was spent preparing food, drinking margaritas, eating and then visiting.
