Settling In

Well....we really do like our little winter site here at Del Pueblo in Yuma.   On day one, many of our neighbors came by and introduced themselves.  I'm doing my best to remember their names....LOL!  In the course of conversation they also let us know that they do cross over into Mexico to shop once in awhile and invited us to come along.  Mentioned there was this neat little restaurant there that had really good margaritas.  Apparently, this group has been known to over indulge.....just a little....I think the saying goes, "one tequila, two tequila, three tequila....FLOOR!"  Ha! Ha!  So, I mentioned that my Billy doesn't drink and is my built in "DD".  Wow.....did he make some new friends fast....they all LOVE him...HE!  HE!
Lots of activities here.....yesterday the ladies and I went for "Line Dancing" country western style.  Think I need to get me some cowboy boots now.  Day before I checked out the gals in beading class...they were having a good time too!  All in all, I think we are going to really enjoy our time here at Del Pueblo.
Here is a photo of our site.....
Lots of space and a really nice big patio.  The rest is pretty much gravel, except for the area directly behind the rigs and that is sand.  I don't mind the sand....great place for the furballs to do their business! Speaking of "furball business", you should see their dog run here.  Not only is it nice and large, but it has artificial grass.  They have a hose there to aid in clean up, but also an in ground sprinkler that runs every wash down the puppy pee!  And once a week they come in and hose it down with a puppy friendly disinfectant.  Next to that is a small shed with state of the art puppy washing....that cost some coin though....kinda like a car wash. 
This place is also hummingbird central....I have never seen so many.  I put my feeder out yesterday and it did not take them long to find it.  They also like to sit in that tree and chirp at one another.   Hoping to get some photos in the future. 
We had quite a bit of rain here last Thursday evening and then the temps dipped a little.  Our days went from 70's to 60's, cooling down into the low 50's at night.  Lastly...our Christmas presents to one another are on the way.....two new bright and shiny Iphone 5s.  Black for Billy and White for me....can't wait to get them and check out all the new bells and whistles!  Life is Goode!
Happy Holidays Everyone!
