New Year's Eve party at Lynda Vista. Pat, DD, Pebbles, Katie and Jim.
Mickey, neighbor in the park
The entertainers were from Branson. Good music
This was his Johnny Cash outfit. He changed to Porter Waggoner next, and I can't remember the rest
DD in a nice Tye Dye
Jim took a lot of pictures with his new camera.
Romy got leid at the party.
Katie, Pat and Jim. Pat has to get up at 4:30 AM and drive for 13 hours tomorrow. So, we left the party before midnight
Katie and Pat
The later it got, more people danced. This man could barely walk, but he was out on the floor.
Getting ready to leave for the party
Jim and Katie looked like a million bucks! I think he's putting on her prom bouquet. Actually, installing a name tag
Katie made this lovely cake to take to the "finger food" table
There was tons of food. This is just one of the tables
Romy and Katie polish off a few Old Fashions
Some of the park people
Jim & Katie went for their first ride on the "T-dub" this New Year's Eve. We're now ready to attack the desert and visit some ghost towns!
Jim tried on a lot of hats today. Thought this one is pretty cool.
Where the Mermaids come to shop. They have to trade in their tail fin for one of these.
DD headed for the rice paddy.
Jim and I agreed that this is a "Stewey" size margarita glass.
Dave and Romy had a snowy trip down from Calgary. They were tired, but made it fine.
Jim and Katie brought over food to share. We had a nice dinner!
Sure nice to see this international couple. New Zealand, South Africa, and now Canada. And, practically Arizona :-)
Jim has his Classic ready for shopping!
This VN2000 was for sale last year. Still in the same place. It may be a hard sell...........
Ms. Captain America!
After shopping at the "used food store" :-)
Jim and I were on a ride today. Now, why did we think of our NZ friends when we passed this field??
He looks good on a T-Dub!
Pat and Katie did the cooking for our dinner tonight. Everything was good
Jim (Wrong Turn's) plate this morning. We ate in a little open front cantina in Mexico. Add several fresh "hot off the grill" flour tortillas, and it was a pretty substantial breakfast.
Algodones, Mexico. This is the first time I've ever been down here that the sun wasn't out. It was cool and cloudy, and even a little moisture in the air.
Early morning food vendors are set up and dishing out food. Lots of the the locals that work in the shops come over here to eat.
Katie shows me her "End of the Trail" pin. One of my favorite pictures.
Huevos Rancheros, a side order of pork, beans, some fresh vegetables, Chips and 2 different salsas, and a container of fresh, hot, tortillas. Topped off with big cups of coffee. Not a bad snack.
Jim trying on hats. He looks good in this one!
Katie had a hard time getting away from this jewelery seller. Both Jim and Katie ended up with some goodies.
A few years ago, I'd have done anything for a shirt like this. Now, Kokopelli is every where. Dozens of similar shirt designs, and well as a full line of other items. Not so much fun now that he's everywhere :-) We had fun over there. (12/29/10)
27 Dec. Jim and Katie are leaving for a little shopping in Yuma. No socks, but at least Katie put on her Arizona riding boots this morning. Jim has 4 saddle bags and a rear travel bag on here. Wonder if they will come home with them all full...............:-)
Dec 26th. Jim and Katie wanted to do some experimenting with their cameras, so we went out to do some night shots. Theirs are much better than these of mine! :-) This is the last bridge across the Colorado River. It tied the Atlantic to the Pacific without having to take any ferries. It was US Highway 80 back then.
A park at the famous Yuma Crossing. It was a route for the pioneers, Army, Indians, and anyone that wanted to get from Arizona to California. The joining of the Gila and Colorado Rivers.
The end. (s)
