Life has been going at a whirlwind pace the last few days.
Friday I had my last “girls’ day out” with Linda Mossman and Nancy Doyle. We ate at Chili’s, Linda and I shopped at Walmart and then I got a perm … note- new glasses as well.
When I woke up Saturday Jim told me everyone was going to be gone that day and the company man said we could close the gate and go out to dinner if we wanted. “If we wanted?” You bet your britches we want to!!!
Before that though I had received an email from folks we met in Quartzsite January 2012, Kati and Tim Mangan. They were in Austin area and had signed up to be gate guards with a different company than ours, and wanted to drive down and talk about the job.
The day was gorgeous so we sat outside and soaked it up while talking about gate guarding…giving advice and answering questions.
We met Tim and Kati during our Escapees RV Club Class of 2007 Fifth Reunion. Our class name designates that we went fulltime RVing in the year 2007. Tim and Kati had just retired (Class of 2012) and were “adopted” by the Class of 2007.
Because there wasn’t anyone left at the pads I didn’t have to stay up. Jim closed the gate and we got to sleep together….Yippee!!! First time in four months.
I hadn’t seen a sunrise since last November….and what a beautiful sight to see……
Our next couple of days will be very quiet. All the personnel have left. The last of the equipment will leave tomorrow and then we leave here Tuesday morning and move to the company yard for a couple of nights.
It’s been a busy couple of days…..a whirlwind of activity.
Remember, you are loved.
