One of the games that Boomers like to play when they get together is called Pegs and Jokers. Last Tuesday we were invited to a P&J tournament. Jim & Diane hosted 6 couples and after 5 games, Frank was crowned Champ. Jenny & Dan, Gretchen & Frank, Jim & Diane, Chuck & Jan, Ron & Sharon and Carol & Jerry, above, are ready to play!
Wednesday was moving day for us. We left Mittry Lake to join a group of friends boondocking out on Sidewinder road. It’s been great to visit/walk/hike with them and enjoy some fabulous sunsets! Friday morning five of us walked over toward the Ogilby hills from our spot on Sidewinder. Mick and Ann are veteran hikers; Linda is a steady walker and we were all ready to venture over to the hills and try the main uphill watercourse. It was a beautiful sunny day with temperatures in the 70’s. Our path took us east up the watercourse, over the saddle and down the other side, through the main valley and then around the north side of the Hills. We all had a great time on our 3 mile hike/walk.
Yesterday was shopping day at Sam’s, along with a stop at Paradise to have their Rib Special with friends Kaaren & Bill and Karen & Mickey. Delicious! They serve a generous helping of meaty ribs with a side of fries for $5.99.
Today we were going to try another hike to the peak but the winds came up last night so ‘no hike’ this morning. We will be moving this afternoon back into the Foothills to stay with friends this week before we venture up to Boomerville at Quartzsite for our annual Boomer gathering.
