The Joy of Friends

I think RVers almost all agree that one of the most wonderful things about this lifestyle is the people you meet along the way. Lately we have been lucky enough to see friends everywhere we go. No sooner had we checked into the park at North Ranch in Congress, than fellow WINs Tom C. and Donna D. surprised us in the club house. We hadn't seen them for quite awhile and spent hours catching up. Wondering around the park one day, we saw Andrew B. who had just arrived and introduced us to Sue (uh-oh, I don't know her last name.) We would have spent longer with them, but they were on their way out to go dancing at the local Elks. Then Sally D. rode her Harley from Sun City to pay us a visit. She looked really cute in all her leather gear. (Are bikers supposed to look cute? Well, she did anyway.) We chatted and went to lunch at the Cowboy Cafe in Wickenburg.

Then when we moved to the Mesa Elks the other day, Tom P. was already parked in their parking lot. We haven't seen him in a month of Sundays, so we caught up on what he's been doing. And last, but certainly not least, we visited Pat and Harold T. who have a house here in Mesa. They've been off the road awhile now, because of complications from Harold's car accident. But they hope to get the RV out this summer if all goes well.

I'm really sorry I didn't get pictures of anybody. What is the matter with me? But I want these and all my friends to know how grateful I am to have them in my life. Life on the road just wouldn't be as wonderful without them.


  1. It sure is nice to have friends everywhere!

  2. It was great seeing you too. Hope to see ya again soon.

  3. PS At my age I'll take "cute" anytime!!

  4. Wow, Max and I were at Wild Horse so he could take me to the airport Wednesday morning, (where I am at right now). He is moving to the Mesa Moose later today.
