RV LIFE PART FOUR
RV LIFE PART FOUR
|Ranch bird sanctuary|
I hope everyone is having a thankful Thanksgiving. I wrote this post yesterday, knowing I’d be overindulging in turkey, stuffing, and family time today. Our family is small, but we make a lot of racket and writing would be out of the question. We’ll do a little trippin’ this holiday long weekend from Tonto Basin to Prescott to Wickenburg and back to the basin.
The RV Ranch is filling up with the usual winter visitors now that November is here. Most of our friends kind of come and go after they’ve come back for the season. Only a couple of them hang here for the holidays. I haven’t had a great deal of time to get social. They wouldn’t have wanted me. I’ve been coughing and feeling generally blah since we got back from Colorado at the end of October. Two trips to the Indian Medical Center has only got me to a certain level of well. Now, I’m trying some of my own remedies.
I did make it to the annual pig roast and tried to hold the coughing down as much as possible. Missing the food was out of the question! I did miss several birthday celebrations. No one seemed to mind!
FDW and I went to Laughlin for a few days. It might have been better if I’d
in bed because I think the trip set me back some. The smoky casinos are not
conducive to keeping the lungs healthy. The fishing was hit and miss. I got
some writing done, too. It was a cheap trip since we had free nights. Tip for
anyone within driving distance of a casino: Stay at one a couple of times and
you will repeatedly be invited back for free nights or greatly discounted with
extras such as free meals. We never pay to stay in
Managed to make it through a Fall Festival a couple of weeks ago with a bag of cough drops in my purse. I think I own stock in Halls by now. Chino Valley, AZ area never ceases to
have some surprises. Take a look who had the booth next to the
local author tent!

My eye appointment went great. After the rude dude at the driver’s license renewal office scared the you know what out of me telling me there was something wrong with my right eye. The doctor confirmed there is nothing wrong, other than a floater. He even checked for melanoma. I’m free and clear and breathing easier.
We tried to walk a couple of mornings, but honestly, the desert and I are
speaking terms right now. I want badly to get back to it, but the cough won’t
give me peace. I’m sure I’ve gained back the six pounds I’d lost.

|Always dry Ranch wash|
We’ve had a little rain in the basin, but as you can see, not enough to get the wash flowing. It hasn’t flowed in the three years we’ve been coming to the Ranch. I’d love to see that happen.
I guess my big tip this time was casino specials. Lately, I’ve been finding great deals for Christmas and I’ll try to remember to share next time.
Enjoy your feast, big or small, wherever you are!
