Oct 18, 2018 - Buckeye AZ – Sundance Active Adult

We arrived in Buckeye late at night and headed for home. I think Bridget was happy to see us. At least she greeted us at the door this time when we came home. She’s such a good dog. I was really happy Jill could come and stay with her so she wouldn’t have to go to the kennel. Bridget is okay with the kennel, but she’s much happier at home getting treats and pets and lots of belly rubs. Back in Buckeye, it’s time for us to start bocce ball, Mexican train and evenings at the Crooked Putter again spending time with all of our friends we missed...

Sep 24, 2018 - Buckeye AZ - Leaf Verde RV Resort

We were going to stay out one more night before heading to Buckeye, but that meant we would have stopped around noon. That seemed to be a bit early, so we decided to keep going to Buckeye. Course, we would get in too late in the day to unload the camper, so we decided to stay out one more night in the RV park in Buckeye. We did go over to the house and turn on the hot water heater and turn down the air conditioner. We got to meet our new neighbor next door. We have a new neighbor across the street, too, but we didn't get a chance to meet...

Sep 27, 2017 - Buckeye AZ – Sundance Active Adult

Back in Buckeye and the weather is warm (Rog would say HOT). I changed back to my shorts in Payson when we stopped for breakfast. Got everything unpacked and will get it put away soon. The house looks good. Our neighbor, Dennis, sure keeps an eye on things for us when we're gone. We are back to work at the Goodyear Ballpark this weekend. They're having a Food Truck Rally and Roger and I are field marshalls, whatever that is. Have an appointment to take the truck in on Monday. Hope there aren't any serious issues. Happy Autumn!

Nov 7, 2016 - Buckeye AZ – Sundance Active Adult

Arrived back in Buckeye around 7 pm and headed home to see if Bridget was still our dog or if Jill had managed to totally win her over. I think she’s Jill’s dog now. Jill had to encourage Bridget to go see who was at the door. I’m afraid she enjoyed her time with Jill a little more than we had planned. She was supposed to miss us at least a little bit. Still, it was good to know she was happy and well taken care of while we were gone. She doesn’t know how good she had it!

Sep 19, 2016 - Buckeye AZ – Sundance Active Adult

Back in Buckeye and it finally decided to cool down a bit (no more 100’s, just upper 90’s). We’ve even had rain. Neighbors and friends are telling us we should have brought the rain sooner. It’s good to see everyone in Buckeye again. Missing niece, Melissa, and family, but they like Virginia, so am glad they got to go out there. Kayla’s still here and it’s great seeing her again.

Nov 13, 2015 - Buckeye AZ – Sundance Active Adult

Back in Buckeye and the weather has been pretty warm and even hot (don’t tell Roger I said that) some days. Now that November is here, the chill is coming. It got down to 45 the other night night. It’s good to be back and see Melissa (niece) and family and Michaela (niece). It’s also good to see all our Sundance friends again. I’m back doing my exercise classes and riding my bike, so I’m liking that. I even worked at the ballpark once already. Both Roger and I are having cataract surgery this month, so we’ll be glad to get that done. Roger...

Apr 8, 2015 - Lazy Daze

Sorry no pictures with this update but will have lots for the next one 29 March I'm really not complaining but in order for the dog not to cook during her walk we tried 8AM. it was already 26C. Took her for a walk anyway, she needs exercise and well so do we! By 10am its 29C and getting hotter. After the walk we were pooped, you have no idea how much the heat drains you. When we were pooped we read books. ha ha ,then spent several hours in the pool. After dinner we watched curling with the A/C on, Mens Worlds. 30 March Was up by 7 to take...

Mar 27, 2015 - It's getting hotter

18 March Ok so I know I posted on FB that someone drove their RV away and forgot to unhook their power and water, what a mess. They pulled the water hookup right out of the ground soooooo everyone in the park had no water for about 4 hours. We were told what happened when we took the dog for a walk. We heard later from Scott (park owner) that someone does this at least once a year. We went golfing so the water was back on when we returned. When we went golfing it was a balmy 26C but, wait for it, wait for it, it cooled off and the last 3...

12 March Cloudy and 22C at 7:30 am, at 10:30it 31C. Played pickleball today from 9 - 10:30am. One of the men that plays is very good, he makes the rest of look really bad. Oh yeah we r really bad!!lol He's been playing for 3 years and we just started. Maybe when we grow up we'll be really good. Its fun and a good workout. There was 6 players so we just rotated and played 3 games. They usually play until noon but we got tired. We got tickets to the 1pm ball game at Goodyear Park $20 which included $5 voucher for food. We found out that at...

Mar 11, 2015 - We are still busy

6 March What a great way to start a Friday! Coffee & donuts in The Barn (main hall) the owner went over a few reviews/comments made by guests of the RV park. The social director then went over any up & coming events in the park. The most amazing thing was that she then introduced everyone their first and last names and where they were from. There were about 75 or more people there. It was quite amazing! We headed out to golf and played with a couple from Edmonton. They built a house here in 2011 and indicated it was just as cheap to build a...

We was gonna go for a bike ride but its too windy so We're having a lazy day! 2 March No only do we have the wind today but it pouring rain and cold.

Jan 30, 2015 - Boondocking!

Well, we didn’t last the two weeks, we only lasted 7 nights. The tanks were almost full to overflowing and we had been into town twice for fresh water for drinking. At least we gave it a good old college try. My breaking point came when I had to wash my hair in the dishpan in the kitchen sink in order to save water. Also when I took my shower I had to use the diluted liquid soap first then rinse it off. Nuts to this! I want hook-ups! On Tuesday we did go into town to the Big White Tent Show. Believe it or not it was filled with liars and...
