More fun in Yuma

Off with the Old.......



On With the New


All Finished!

Tuesday we went to the Farmers Market in Historical Old Town Yuma Then we took someone's suggestion and had lunch at Lute's Casino.  It wasn't anything like I expected..

A couple of hamburgers and an order of Chili Cheese Fries to share. Big Mistake.  That order of Chili Cheese fries was so big, we couldn't even finish half. But oh so good.

Pretty soon someone started playing the old piano behind us. He was really good! Then our server introduced us to Mr. Billy Lute's, one of the owners. He is in partnership with his brother and sister.

Just a photo op....

After the Farmers Market closed, the classic car show started and this was Joe's favorite.

The owner lives 6 months in Fairbanks, Alaska and 6 months in Yuma.  He has this car shipped down....and back.

Yesterday we took a ride out to Martha's Date Gardens, had lunch and a nice ride back "home"

We always turn left off the freeway to go to Pilot Knob RV Park but I said let's turn right instead.  This is all you see. Nothing for miles.

On the way I saw this monument and learned a bit of history.

Who would have thought at one time this was the largest military training ground ever to exist at the peak of activity at Pilot Knob.

lt rained all night last night and this morning this is what I saw instead of the sunrises I so enjoy.

It didn't rain on my morning walk but I took my umbrella just in case.

We decided not to have a Christmas tree this year. Pretty tight quarters inside our little house on wheels. Instead we went to Lowe's found a pretty poinsettia and 

Big red bow.  Works for us.

We made a trip out to the Arizona Market to pick up a couple of things and couldn't resist taking a picture of these guys...(I asked them first. They were very good natured)  I couldn't believe they were trying to get rid of all that water with buckets.  When we left a couple hours later they were still bailing.

On the way out, Joe got a Mexican haircut. The barber was lot of fun to visit with. The guy was born and raised in Yuma and still lives here. He kept us laughing with all his funny stories and comments. Joe got his money's worth on that haircut!  He wasn't thrilled with how short it is now.
