March 17

Happy St. Patricks Day!
We had a sad beginning to our day today. Our very good and special friends, Ron and Terry let us know that they were leaving, heading north today. We are going to check their mail on Monday for them and meet up with them in a while at Navajo Dam in NM. We have followed their web site for about 2 1/2 years and met them when we got to Quartzsite in November. It funny how in such a short time how close you can become to someone. We miss them already!
After a tearful goodbye to them, Bob and I headed to Blythe to attend a RV resort presentation. We spent 1 1/2 hours listening to the presentation and didn't even get a glass of water offered to us. They wanted us to buy into the resort for a mere $7800.00. We turned it down!
We then headed to Quizno's for a sub sandwich. The place was packed so we took our subs to the city park. Good food but the prices were high.
Next, off to Kmart---we had to get 2 new outside chairs. Our others had bitten the dust. We got a couple of Northwest Territory chairs for $15/each.
About 5:30pm we headed into town (Quartzsite) and had dinner with 2 couples we met when we first got to town. Great food, good conversation.
It has finally cooled down to 83 at 9pm after being 102 early this afternoon.
