I haven’t posted in some time since I don’t think much of what I’ve been doing is very interesting to most people. I had a little excitement a few days after my golf cart was delivered. I had taken Emma to the dog park at 6:30 in the morning, and noticed on the way back that the cart was becoming more and more sluggish. The last hill up to my site took about twenty minutes to accomplish. Seems I hadn’t paid attention to the amount of charge left in the batteries. Ugh! Thought I was going to have to put Emma to pulling me home like a sled dog. Learned a lesson that day.
When I ordered my new camera lens back in early October, I bought it on Amazon and signed up for Prime. Never thought it was worth the money for me before, but knew I’d be making some purchases once I got here. No shipping fees is nice. This pic shows two of my purchases. I ordered a stand for my Weber Q, and a picnic table. I managed to get that Q stand assembled by myself, but knew I’d need help with the picnic table.
Merikay and Craig to the rescue! I’m not sure they were as happy as I that the table was delivered before their visit to Jojoba was over.
This assembly really needed a couple or three people to make the job go quickly. It’s nice to have friends nearby when you need them.
It only took about an hour to get the job done. Now my huge patio doesn’t look quite so bare, and I’ve got a place to attach Emma’s tie out to. Of course if she gets excited, she can move the table, but thank goodness there aren’t any squirrels in my neck of the woods!
We all inaugurated the table last night as I had Merikay and Craig over for a cookout. Emma showed her thanks too.
Part of what’s included at each site here is a telephone hookup. When was the last time you bought a regular telephone and not a cell phone? I think it’s been close to twenty years for me. It’s wise to have a phone in case you need to dial 911. If you do that on your cell phone it goes to Indio, CA, and the response is delayed. If you use the regular phone, it is handled locally and volunteers in the park come to help and make sure the gate is opened for emergency responders. You can also call any other site in the park any time you want for free.
I’m planning to get back to more regular blogging since most of the basics of moving in have been taken care of now. It’s also about time I get out and find some little adventures to enjoy!
Thanks for stopping by… talk to you later, Judy
