Merry Christmas & Happy New Year

Again, I will apologize for not posting in anything in over a month.  Life seems to keep me a few steps behind all the time.  There has not been a lot to report but I do like to keep in touch.  
After a pleasant, but soggy Thanksgiving with my brother Tony, here at Wilderness Lakes, we went to Palm Springs Resort for eleven days.   One must always be grateful when California gets some much needed rain, even if we don't enjoy everything getting soaked.  One of the reasons people choose to live in the southwest is that the weather is almost always warm and dry.  We enjoyed a nice visit with our dear friends Ray and Carol,when they came out to Palm Springs.
After our time in Palm Springs, where we sent out a few Christmas gifts and a bunch of Christmas cards, we came back to Wilderness Lakes again.  I got busy setting up, as usual, and then put out all of our Christmas decorations.  The next day I got really sick.  I have a bad case of bronchitis and an upper respiratory infection.  Between the antibiotics and the medications for the infection, I have been napping much of the time.  Sadly, as we age we lose the ability to bounce back the way we did when we were younger.  Being sick meant we had to cancel invitations to be with friends.  The last thing they need is to have me coughing all over them.  As a result, we spent a quiet Christmas here in the RV with our two fur babies.  I mostly miss the fact that we couldn't go to the candle light church service here in the park.  It's always a very special service, but the cold night air would not have been good for me, and nobody wants my germs.  We are again having a lot of rain, good for California,  but not so much for me.  This cough is hanging on something terrible.  As I said before, there is no real news, so I guess I should close this up with my hopes that each of you had a very nice Christmas and wish you ALL a very Happy and Prosperous New Year.  Recognize all your blessings, and look forward to how you might share them in the year ahead.  

We will leave here on January 6th for seven days in Palm Springs, and then on to Quartzsite before we proceed to Arrey, New Mexico.  I am ready to head home, and looking forward to living there.  I know I will miss my family and friends in other places, but truly hope some will visit us in our new home once we get settled in.  

We will share pictures once we get everything set up.  
Happy and Healthy New Year to one and all.
