Dreaming and Family

Last Thursday we went to a RV show at the stadium. They had new and used -all kinds. Gas, diesel, rear gas, anything you would want. We started at the used diesel pushers. Saw them all but the tag axles. They would be way too big. Then we went on to the new motor homes. We went into most of them, too. The one we liked the most was a 40' Monaco Camelot. It had 2 recliners, which is very rare. A wide screen TV was also something we liked. The 2 things we liked best was the amount of storage in the kitchen, and the huge areas for closet space. It was a beautiful unit. Only 14,000 miles, and the same year as our Emily. Like the title of this entry..dreaming. Maybe in a couple of years. It's always fun to look. Looking gives us good ideas on what to look for when we do serious shopping.
Saturday we went to Jim and Dee's for a family got-together. Most of the Arizona family were there. It was so good to see them all. We all took something to share, but Dee made most of the food. Jim cooked hot dogs and hamburgers on the grill, along with some sausage. Salads and lots of finger foods. Yummy. Dee makes a really good strawberry pie. We each had a piece of that. I must say, we really miss those Plant City strawberries from Florida. There's nothing like them. Right about now we would be having shortcake if we were there. Be that as it may, we had a great time, and we are glad we are here.
Speaking of Florida, we have seen some Mets games on the TV. It's good to have the boys of summer back in the field. We do love our Mets! WE haven't gone to any games here yet, maybe one day this week.
Luke Air Force Base is very close to us. Every day, except Sunday, we have fighter jets fly right over our site. Usually as a pair, but sometimes 4. We haven't counted, but I would say maybe 20 times a day. During the night they don't fly too often. They are really something to see. We are used to them now.
Today we went to do the laundry. It took quite a while. Then we took a quick trip to Wal-Mart. We just needed milk and a couple of other things. After that we came home to watch the ball game. We love that TIVO. I fixed a supper of left-overs. I made ham and mashed potatoes and gravy yesterday, so we'll finish it up and have sandwiches tomorrow. We are having a few cooler days, so having the oven on isn't too bad.
We don't know what tomorrow will bring, but that's half the fun. We'll take it as it comes.
