Another Yuma Christmas

We left Quartzsite Tuesday afternoon and had a long drive of 63 miles to reach our next destination. We always go to the little patch of BLM land next to the VFW. After getting setup it was time for happy hour (circle) at Sherry's two doors down. It was great seeing so many of our friends. Hugs all around.

We met with Boomer's for the Wednesday movie and dinner. We saw "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo". It was great as we had read the books. Afterwards we went to Das Bratwurst Haus for a delicious German dinner with them.

Our first Hug's & Mug's with the Win's on Thursday morning.
 Then the crew came to wash & wax the motorhome and wash the trailer and car. They did the outside windows but Donna had to do the inside of the windows. Wow! now we can again see the world. The BLM officer came by & kicked the crew out before we got the rig waxed.
Jim came by for a nice visit. 

We had snacks on Christmas eve with the WIN's and sang Christmas Carols around the campfire.  Christmas morning we had breakfast finger foods with the WIN's and then had a gift exchange, exchange, exchange. A persons playing card would be called. They got up selected a gift from the table & opened it or they could steal one that had been previously opened. After a gift had been exchanged 3 times it became unstealable. Donna got a box with 2 battery operated flameless candles and Bob ended up with a box of crackers and summer sausage. Then it was over to the VFW for Pot Luck and ham. Dancing followed but we were very full (of food) so didn't stay too long.

The next day the group took a tour of Cloud Museum. 

Bob got his fill of seeing old rusty cars and a few that were restored.
Donna enjoyed the old 1930ish motorhome. 

It was followed by a trip to the Date Gardens where we took a tour of the facility and found out everything one would want to know about dates besides the fact they taste good. In shakes too.
