Here are some picture taken of
the Zoo and the USS Midway, WOW what a ship.
Took Pictures on the outside, the crowds were so bad it would have taken us hours just to get a peek inside so decided we would come back at a future date. Apparently there is a football game this weekend Arizona and Nebraska and seems they all were at the zoo and the harbor. It was a perfect, comfortable day down at the harbor, we had to park and walk, too far for me so a bike ride it was, No, Mike did not have to peddle, our peddler was Diane who also acted as tour guide for no extra cost, giving us history of the downtown area as she took us up to see the Star of India and the Russian sub in the harbor.
Of Course Mike is in 7th heaven, since he has coffee in one hand and an arm around a younger and pretty gal. We then went to the Farmers Fish Market and had lunch, the food was not bad but not a place I would come back to eat at either. At least we had a great view of the harbor.

The Yorkie is not going to be, Joyce called on Friday to tell
me the lady had changed her mind and was giving it to her Aunt.
It was a huge disappointment, guess it was not meant to be.
We went to the San Diego Zoo today, it was a zoo within a zoo, there were thousands of people, asked one of the bus drivers for the zoo if it was like this all of the time, she said only during the holidays and Spring break. We enjoyed it, this time I remembered to bring the scooter and the key, we were able to see a lot more and I did not get tired. The Animals were all out and giving us a great view of themselves, got some great pictures, Will have on the web tomorrow.

Before I till you about Christmas, I want to tell you a couple whom
we meet last year in Hurricane at the WHR RV Resort, Lonnie and
Sandi, they saw the web update that we were in the San Diego area.
Sandi emailed me to say they too were in San Diego would we like to
visit them. So last Tues. we went to the RV park that Lonnie
is working at, after visiting for awhile we all decided to got to a
restaurant called Dick's Last Resort. Before entering the
restaurant there is a small sign that says they have the right to
give you a hard time, enter at your own risk. Before, Sam our
waitress could do that, we gave her the hard time, she started
telling us the special and I interrupted her, asking her to repeat
what she had just said. After she got through telling us all,
we asked her to repeat again. She said she was the one to give
us the rough time not us. It was a fun place and we really
enjoyed having friends to share the time with. Thanks Lonnie
I meet two wonderful ladies here in the park, Susan and Bev, they each own the embroidery machine like mine, Susan has the 3D Pfaff, while Bev just got her brand new Pfaff which is bigger and can do a lot more then mine. They are giving me lessons and will continue at the next park as we all seem to be heading the same way, & same day, I will get to finally learn my machine, I can't thank them enough.
The first picture is of Bev( also my embroidery teacher) who helped with the turkey, gravy and mashed potatoes.
When we were in Benson, and it was Black Friday, I went to Wal-Mart to get Michael, our son his Christmas gift, they had the Tom-Tom on sell and that was what he wanted, I then went to Tucson for my sister to color my hair, we went to Best Buy first, that's where I purchased my Christmas gift ,a WII with the fitness platform. My Christmas came early.
I am also getting another surprise gift. Lou & Joyce, who I have talked about before, are coming to Tucson for the winter. We talk at least once a week, to make a long story short, I am getting a Yorkie. They have a neighbor who has two dogs, the Yorkie is 7 months old, since they both work split shifts, it is hard for them and the 2 dogs, they wanted Lou and Joyce take her, but it is too soon after the death of their dog. They told the couple about me looking, they looked at the web site and said YES, Joyce will bring Molly with them to Tucson and Mike will drive over there once we get to the next RV park. I can't wait to get her, she is only 7 lbs and won't get much bigger, have not seen a picture of her but Joyce says she is the cutest, minds well. So my Christmas will actually be two, today and when Molly gets here. Will show her picture on the web as soon as I can.
We hope everyone had a Great Day, if you celebrate New Years drive carefully and know we love you all. My wish for everyone in the New Year is to be prosperous and healthy.
Until Next year Happy Holidays

We arrived here at Pio Pico

here, stopping at the Acorn Casino. Came out ahead by $165 so

We are finally on our way for the winter with a 12 day stop over in
CA but really Yuma. Staying at the
Pilot Knob RV Resort.
We had a great time while in Benson and St. David, I volunteered at Valley Vista, by holding Card Bingo on Halloween (it really was a Witches card bingo ) and everyone who attended will tell you they had the greatest witch, ME!! Also put on Texas Holdem at both Valley Vista and Twin Lakes. I had a lot of fun with all of the activities.
Thanksgiving at Valley Vista was beyond good, the food that everyone bought to the feast was so good I ate way too much. One of the salads created by Gailean, was terrific, look for it on the recipe page.
Ron cooked the turkeys, Jane was the kitchen help and the last picture, well can I say anymore just look at all of that food
Now onto other parks and new adventures, we hope to see those of you whom we have meet in the past, can't wait to catch up with everyone.
Until next week and a new park. Stay warm, the weather here has turned a nasty cold and rain is suppose to be here on Monday with the cold front. Came this way to get out of winter guess it is following us. Hope Pio Pico is warmer
