Howling at the Moon

There is a weird thing here in Yuma. On the night of a full moon they have a big party out in the desert and it is called "Howling at the Moon". They set up a stage and play music and everyone brings there chairs and favorite beverage and party, complete with vendors! They have a 50/50 drawing. They called the last four digits, which I had. Peggy never saw me run so fast. Turns out, when they checked all the numbers on the ticket, I was a loser.
The stage and dance floor (Desert Dance Floor).
Peggy and I drove the Reeper out to the party.

Just starting to come over the mountains. 
What a good time, everyone howls at the moon and 10 minutes later everyone takes off and the party is over. Us Old people do not like to be out too late!  
We even get a little air show.
I am looking forward to the next full moon.
Our friends Jeff and Diane have come down to the park. So it's time to party even more.
We went bowling at the park bowling alley and had a ton of fun. Jeff and Diane's daughter, Shantel is here for the holidays. 
  We suck at bowling! But the park has a real nice bowling alley.
Shantel got Jeff a Corn Hole game for Christmas. We set it up and had a little tournament. My arm is still hurting from bowling and Corn Hole. I hope it doesn't screw up my Golf game. 
Oh, we went to the tamale festival in Somerton, AZ. As you can see, Jeff and I had a lot of fun.
We had Christmas dinner at the party hall in the park. The food was very good.

Just Having Fun

The Weather is great. Today's temp is going to get close to 80! We can take that. We love this park.
Here is the pool and hot tub at night. The pool has the cauldrons of fire. We go down to the hot tub a lot. The hot tub is the only thing we miss from our house.
Sitting out in the sun watching football on TV.
At the same time, making some Jerky on the BGE.
Hash browns and bacon was the first cook of the day.
 We found old town Yuma. It's a real nice little downtown with some good places to have a good lunch.
 We had a beer at the Prison Hill Brewery.
 The Beer was OK but not as good as in Bend, OR.
 Then we stopped at Red's Bird Cage to check it out. A nice dive bar in downtown.
 The next place to check out was Lute's Casino. But it looked like a good place to eat. No gambling that I saw. This weird little answer  box was on the bar. We didn't have a penny to try it.
On the way back to our rolling home we stopped at the Flea Market. They always have live music playing and some good shade to sit and listen.
