Happy Thanksgiving


Happy Thanksgiving to all of our family and friends. This has been a bit of a difficult year, but we are so thankful for all of our blessings. 

In addition to the passing of my mom this summer, a good friend of ours here in Yuma passed away very unexpectedly a few weeks ago. 

Rick was a wonderful person who was always smiling and a true gentleman. He played golf with the men's club on Tuesday morning, went home, sat down with a glass of water and passed away at the young age of 72. A neighbor found him a short time later. It was a great shock to many here at the resort. Rick was an avid golfer and card player, and was loved by many. Here are a few photos of us with Rick.

I was so heartbroken to hear about the senseless tragedy at the Waukesha, Wisconsin Christmas parade last weekend. I worked in that school district for seven years before I retired. I pray for all those impacted that they may heal both physically and psychologically. 

Times like this remind us of lucky we are to have good health and to be living our best life. You never know what tomorrow will bring.

A few weeks ago our resort hosted a complimentary welcome back party with a delicious dinner, drinks, a photo booth and an ice cream truck. We had a great time. It was held outdoors in the parking lot of the North Hall on a beautiful and warm evening. The band was set up on a trailer.

The girls had some fun at the photo booth.

On November 18th, the resort hosted a Howling at the Moon party in the parking lot next to the baseball field with a band and bonfire. We were so fortunate to see a beautiful sunset to the west and the full moon rising over the foothills to the east. 

Last Saturday we had a Thanksgiving dinner hosted by the resort. They provided the turkey and gravy, and each table of ten brought the rest of the meal. We enjoyed a great meal with some of our friends. 

Today Kevin is golfing with the guys in the morning. Then, we are staying home and enjoying a peaceful day on our own. Not to complain, but we stay quite busy around here. Sometimes a day at home is just what is needed. Plus, it's quite windy and only going to be in the low 70s. Brrr!!

Don't Wish Upon a Star-Reach for One!!
