Where are we?

Monday February 11, 2019

What did we do today?
I did not even finished washing the MH.  The sun was too hot on the paint.
One of my lens from my glasses fell off today.  I could not put it back on, it would pop right out again.
Tomorrow, we will be going to Los Algodones, Mexico to get it fixed.

Tuesday February 12, 2019

We are back in Los Algodones.  I showed my glasses to the Eye Doctor.  He tried to put the lens back on the frame, no success for him either. He has to send them back to the place where they made it.  He told us to come back in an hour.

Michele uses this time to get and haircut for $8.  She has been here before.

One of the side streets in Los Algodones.  I really like it when a tree goes over the road like this one.

We still have time to kill, why not have a coffee and an apple fritter.  We had the special coffee, with Kaluha.

I got my glasses back and all is good with them now.
Michele wants to buy a bottle of Kaluha before we go back in the U.S.  You cannot buy alcohol before 11 am in Mexico.  It is about quarter to 11.  Michele noticed how many people were waiting to buy alcohol.  She them tells me " All those people will be heading to the border after they buy the alcohol and the line-up to cross in the U.S. will be very long."  We did not buy a bottle of Kaluha and headed straight to the border.  Right at 11, we started to see hordes of people coming to the line-up to cross in the U.S.  We only had to wait 1/2 an hour to get through custom.  By that time, the line-up was 2 to 3 hours wait time.  Michele had a very good idea not to buy the bottle of Kaluha.

We got back home before lunch.  The sky is cloudy, it is a good time to finish washing the MH, but it did not happen because we have no water in the RV Park.  When we got here last Friday, I decided to fill the freshwater tank just in case.  We are using that water right now.
When we move in the RV Park, our neighbor invited us for a cocktail today.  We were more than 20 attending.
This gave us a chance to meet our other neighbors.

Tuesday is Bingo night.

We did not win this time.

Water came back on just before supper yesterday, but it is off again this morning.  The water came back on for good just before lunch.  The sky is cloudy, I finally finish washing the MH.

I spent most of the afternoon doing small chores on and around the MH.  Michele went to the local Thrift Store that she likes.  We also went to the hot tub before supper.

A good day.  We had some light rain during the evening.

A rainy day, all day!

Last January, we bought these pork spareribs for $0.99 a pound.  You cannot go wrong at that price.
We will have enough for 2 meals.

The ribs cooked all afternoon in the slow cooker.  I will finish them in the oven at broil for a few minutes before we eat them.

I forgot to take a photo of the final result.  They were very good.

The sun is back, but the wind sure has a bit to it!
Another easy day at home.

Michele went to the Thrift Shop this morning.  When she got back, we went to the Yuma Swap & Meet.  It is just an ordinary flea market.  Some new stuff and some old stuff.  This place sells damaged food stuff near or just passed the "Best Before Date".

After the flea market, we went to another store that sells damage groceries too.

Next was a quick stop at the local Walmart and then back home by about 2 pm.
The wind still has quite the bite to it.

The other day, I went visiting Claude.  Claude told me he had problems with reception on his cell phone when he is indoor.  He has to step outside to make or take a call.  That gave me the idea that maybe it is the same reasons our internet is very slow with our cell phone!
I tracked down where the nearest cell phone tower was located and took our phone by the window where I can see the tower.  It happens to be our bedroom window.  Now our internet is very fast, the way it is supposed to be.

Claude and I went for breakfast this morning.  We ate at Brownie's Cafe.  It was good.

We spent most of the afternoon reading outside, sheltered from the wind.  When a cloud passed over us, it got cold.

Sunday evening is our big night to watch TV.

Another good week.

Until next time.

Life is good...
