A Couple of Party’s and an Unexpected Visit.


Slow Days.

As you have probably figured out we haven’t been doing a lot the last few days.

A Couple of Party’s.

Party 1

We were invited to a couple party’s over the weekend.

One was at Nonda and Jeff’s. A semi potluck.
Jeff has the local windshield repair/replacement business.
We knew them from when we lived at Holiday Palms.

It was fun but we didn’t know many of the other people that were there so we didn’t stay long.

Party 2

Last evening we went to Joy and Robert’s for the jeep group’s annual Christmas party. It was a finger food kind of thing.


Joy and Robert are renting a double wide mobile home and have a lot of room for entertaining.



Here are a some of the Lady’s getting things ready.


Of course we knew everyone at the party so we stayed a little later.
Joy and Robert’s place is just a couple blocks away so it was very convenient.

A Fire Place Outside.

I have been trying to figure out what to do for an outdoor fireplace. What I decided to do is to cut one out of a 55 gallon drum.
Bill found me one but it has been used for a waste oil containment drum.


Most of the old oil has been drained from the barrel but there is still a lot of sludge in the bottom. I will have to clean it out before I can start cutting the barrel up.
I have decided to pour a gallon of diesel fuel in to the barrel, agitate it some how and then pour the mixture into a 5 gallon bucket for disposal.
Once I have most of the oil sludge out I think I’ll pour a couple of bottles of Awesome in the barrel and swish it around and drain it again.
I’m still trying to decide what the end product will look like. Originally I was thinking of some thing like a Swedish fire place with a short stack on the top. Now I am thinking of getting rid of the top altogether and just making it an open fireplace.

We will see how it turns out.

A Visit With Patti’s Nephew.

Yesterday, Patti noticed on Facebook, that her nephew Anthony who is a long hall truck driver was going to be stopping in Quartzsite for lunch. Patti contacted him and arranged to meet him at the local Carl’s Jr. around 2:00.
We got there around the same time he did and had a nice visit.

While we were there our daughter Becki called so he had a chance to talk to her.


Okay that more or less catches us up for now.
Tomorrow, as it is Wednesday, we will be going out on a jeep ride.
