Sunday we got a call from Rich and Terri Deacon saying they had decided to buy a lot at the Rover's Roost, an Escapees Coop Park, in Casa Grande. They were driving from Monte Vista, Colorado, Monday to sign the papers and then wanted to drive to Sun City to visit us.
So yesterday they drove over, checked into a motel and came to sit on our patio and have a cool one…or two…or…
We drove them around town a little and showed them a couple of the recreation centers. Then we came back to the condo and cooked up our Easter dinner that we didn’t eat last Sunday. The ham, scalloped potatoes (thank you Roberta for the recipe) and what we call “Glorified Bean Casserole”, our daughter, Christine’s recipe of fresh green beans, asparagus, mushrooms, onions, bacon, and topped with cheese.
We talked into the night, enjoying these dear friends as much as we could. Jim and Rich have known each other for over 35 years when Jim sold bread to Rich at Safeway grocery store…lots of history together. Plus we all began camphosting together in 2007 and have been close ever since.
This morning we had The Deacons over for breakfast before they hit the road back to New Mexico and Colorado. I forgot to take a photo but the leftover ham went great with Jim’s scrambled eggs and homemade biscuits.
We said goodbye with a selfie…..
We plan to see a lot of The Deacons this summer in South Fork were they are the managers at South Fork Campground, a great little commercial campground on the shores of the Rio Grande River.
Remember, you are loved…..too!
