We Came To The Desert….


hoping to spend Christmas wearing shorts and eating dinner with a warm breeze blowing through open doors and windows.  Instead we got snow on the mountains,


truck doors frozen shut, frost on the picnic tables,


and ice on the puddles.


Then I got the best Christmas gift—a look at the last little sliver of the moon before it goes dark for a week.  Awesome!!!!


In the afternoon we drove to the new house in Congress (AZ) of our friends Doug and Jan for Christmas dinner. 


Also joining us were other rv friends from the park, Allison, her husband Danny and their baby Catkin and their dog Buster, and Doug’s brother Dave who is visiting from Colorado.

From the left, Duane, Jan, Allison (not sure that’s how she spells her name), Catkin, Danny, Dave, Doug, and Buster who wasn’t invited to the table, but jumped into my chair.


We all enjoyed dinner in our own ways,


then Catkin got a bath and a nap while the adults sat around eating dessert and visiting.


A very nice day with our new friends, who filled in for our absent families.

We hope your day was as happy as ours.

Louise and Duane

Brrrr! I think AZ is having the most unusual weather I have ever seen.
How nice to share Christmas with friends. Glad it was a blessed day for you two. Ours was super!
