Tucson Monaco Rally




Yesterday Hank and I followed Bob and Marlene down to Tucson to check out the Monaco Rally. They sold over 17 coaches. That is great news especially for Monaco. We met up with Peggy and Jim and had lunch at a Mexican Rest.
Always great time with old friends.

Last night, Doug (Mona's Husband) had a surprise party. Her boss told her they had a meeting in one of the room's at 5:30. We were hiding behind the chairs when she walked in..boy, she was surprised. She even came prepared with pen and paper. (lol)
Happy birthday MONA.

Daily Activity





You know I won't bore you blogging the same ole stuff for the next six months but Hank and I decided to sell our home when we return in April and hit the road. So, I am sure there will be some exciting adventures in the near future. Meanwhile, this is a picture of us playing volleyball.

Ladies Day Out






Diane invited a group of women, Pat, Sherry, Nancy and Lillie to go bathing suit hunting in Apache Junction. We got some great deals, suits at $14.95. We all play volleyball everyday, so we really needed them. We enjoyed a great lunch then a shopping spree at Costco's. What fun we had!

Hank smoked a pork, and make some really HOT popppers.

Happy birthday Marlene!!

Palm Creek

Even though we arrived at Palm Creek earlier than normal, the place is popping with activity. I have played water volleyball 2 days in a row. There are muscles hurting which I didn't know I had. We have walked the parked and ridden our bikes.
Tues. night we went to Bob and Marlene's and played pegs and jokers.
Gotten flu shots! Picked up mail and done all the normal boring stuff (lol).

I am hoping Deb and Doug make a special hand delivery next month and visit for awhile.

I probably won't write as often but will facebook.

I will post the abnormal things!!

Bass Pro Shop



Hank and I have been staying across the road from the Bass Pro shop, we decided last evening to take a walk through the store. Wow! This is one of the biggest I have been through. I did a little shooting, shopping, checked out "future boats," watched the fishes. This place was really entertaining.

We are leaving Vegas today for Arizona.

Downtown Vegas




videoLast night we went to downtown Vegas. This is a view of Freemont Street looks and the video is just a tiny bit of the show shown on the ceiling every hour. We both won at gambling last night and came home winners. We attended Sunday School and Church this morning and everyone "re-welcomed" us back for our annual visit.

Imperial Palace, Flamingo, Caesar's Palace








Today Hank and I went to see the fantastic cars at the Imperial Palace, then strolled down to the Flamingo to see guess what? "Flamingos"
Then over to the shops in Caesar's Palace..we ran into Pete Rose signing bats and balls, he looks so OLD.

Red Rock Canyon






Yesterday was a challenge for me! We went hiking in the Red Rock Canyon. We did 3 easy trails and my new back handled it all. It was beautiful day! The weather was perfect. We had a enjoyable picnic on one of the trails.

Night life on the strip




Hank and I walk, walk and walk. We have gone down to New York-New York, MGM. We went shopping throughout the different casinos.

Las Vegas-this is our home for a week



Well our first day in Vegas is very relaxing. "The White Ghost" went swimming for about an hour. Then the two of us rode our bikes around the park. This is the first time on my bike since my surgery. I've always heard, "it's like riding a bike, just hop back on there." (lol)
Later we went to the strip and walked through Rio and Gold Coast. Neither of us had been in either casino. We didn't loose to much money!

We are up early again before 5am...when will our bodies change time? We have already walked the perimeter of the park and it isn't even 7am. Geez

Laughlin at sunrise











Hank and I awoke at 4:30 again this morning, so we decided to go to IHOP for breakfast on the other side of the Colorado River in Arizona. These were a couple of pictures with a beautiful sunrise. Off to Vegas this morning!!

Laughlin at night














The campground we are staying at has 752 campsites. It is on the side of a hill and we are on the top looking down on the city. It is a very pretty site seeing the buildings glowing in different colors. Mr Moon was even showing off tonight over the city. Hank went outside to get a bunch of pictures and these are just a few of them.

Laughlin Classic Car Museum














Tonight Hank and I went over to the Riverside Casino. Upstairs we found a neat car museum...thought we would share some phone pictures.

Laughlin, Nevada



Yesterday we went from over 7,000' down to 500', that sure messed with my sinus infection. Hank and I parked in an RV park overlooking the river. After we got situated we headed up to the Tropicana to do a little "HOT SHOT" slots. Hank won $8.
We slept in late, 4am. (lol) and decided to walk up to Harrah's. It is 2miles up a hill and you could ride a water taxi back but no Hank wanted to kill me.
