Golfing with A.J. and Irene





Today, even though it is cool and windy we (tried) played golf with AJ and Irene. They are excellent golfers, whereas Hank and I are not so HOT. We had a great time chasing after that little white ball. Now, what is the point of this game again?

Christmas dinner at Valarie's


Dinner was fabulous! Mike had prime rib on the grille, Lillie brought corn casserole, Valarie had potatoe and all sorts of desserts.
Dinner wouldn't be complete without playing games. Anne, Steve, Irene, A.J.,Donna, Mike, Valarie, Gerry, Hank and myself played Charades and Bollerdash.
Great friends!

Christmas Eve Party





Christmas Eve was spent across the street at Zella and Harriet's RV. There were probably 50 people who all brought food. Valarie led the girls in singing Christmas carols. Hank and the boys stood by the fire talking politics.
375 illuminate lights were lit up and down the street. You can see our RV on the corner (barely). The show for the evening was the sunset!! It was gorgeous! God always amazes us by creating the most spectacular event of the evening.
MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE AND HAPPY NEW YEARS.

Who's crazy??



Hank and I actually slept late this morning, 7:00am. I think that is the latest we have ever slept. Yes, Lillie actually played watervolley ball today. The die hards showed up!! The wind was blowing like crazy, which made hitting the ball really funny! We played for over 2 hours. Hank played golf. We went out to dinner, then did a little shopping.

Chili night at the Corbitt's on a rainy night



The day started off pretty nice and we played pickleball. As the day went on, it got overcast and cooler so I thought we would make some chili. I made so much, we decided at the last minute to ask over neighbors, Irene & AJ, Steve and Anne.
Very Yummy! After dinner, the girls went to Bingo! Anne won about $15.
Great time with friends.

Family Feud






Last night Hank and I both went out of our comfort zone!! We were asked to be contestants by our "so called" friends, to be on the game show Family Feud.
We were on opposite teams. The girls were called "Babes in Playland" and the boys were "Hillbilly Heartaches". But believe me when I say, the boys only gave us Heartburn instead of Heartaches. There was much laughter by the audience, and the answers were very funny!! The first contestants before us were dressed normal and very serious.
The girls won the big prize, $25. each! We beat all the teams. Lillie was in the final lightning round, she and Anne did great! We had cute names for our team too!
Rene, Margarette, Tiger Lily, Lorretta and Dominque. The boys were, Bubba, Bubba #2, Bubba #3, Bubba #4(hank), and Bubba #5 and Blue (Doggie they pulled around on a rope).

We finished the evening by alot of fun dancing and laughter. Merry Christmas Everyone.

Merry Christmas Hank



Hank got his Christmas present a little early and is giving it a try today. This is a little smoker-grille that will fit in the basement of the RV. He is so excited and is cooking a pork loin today!! He has been watching the food chanel learning all about cooking. OH BOY!! Maybe that means I will be cooking less and less and him more and more!

Katherine's visit continues




After Katherine and Brian arrived, we went to a Mexican Restaurant for her BD dinner.
We taught them pickleball and played several games. We played peg and jokers, sequence and lots of Wii because it actually rained and cooled off Sunday.
Katherine and I did some shopping and Brian and Hank played golf.

This morning Katherine made a bowl in the pottery. We are now heading to Chandler for lunch then drop them off at the airport in Phoenix. I loved my visit so much.

Thursday, Dec. 4th.

This is a tough day for me, John passed away 4 years ago today. Thank God he sent me Hank. He is such a kind and understanding Husband. I want to Thank you all- all my friends and family for your support and love. I love you all!
The morning started early as usual. Today, after 2 weeks of not playing pickleball...I am going to try. Hank and I entered into a round robin. I lost 1, and won 6. YEAA!! Maybe I just needed to rest to improve my game. (haha) I also played water volleyball, then we drove down to Phoenix to watch the Coyotes play ice hockey. About 40 Palm Creek people road a cool bus. What a game!! 6-3. Returned around 10:30! Long day and finally it is over....good night
