Year of the Dog...

Yanks RV Resort
Greenfield, CA

When we started full timing 6 years ago, 
we both said we wouldn't get a fur baby.
I've never had a dog, only cats,
and George said 'he did his time' with dogs.

Well...


Meet Cooper! (Mini Cooper :-) 
He's a Maltipoo.


Norma's sister's dog had puppies back in December,
and I'd been vying for one since.
Since we're sitting in California for awhile,
I figured it was time :-)


He was born on December 20th,
and Norma delivered him to me on Valentine's Day!


He's learning to sleep longer overnight in his crate.
and we're learning his signals to 'do his business'
and get him outside before too many accidents.


George, who initially wasn't on board with this decision,
is warming up to it :-)


We signed up for Petsmart's wellness plan,
which is great!
For a monthly fee, he gets all his shots,
neutering when it's time,
and deworming, flea checks, etc.

They have an unlimited visit policy if we have questions as well.

We'll try not to keep the blog all about Cooper,
but it will be hard!

Life in California is good!

Yanks RV Resort
Greenfield, CA

Lots of things happening here in California.

We've taken a ride over to Monterey..


I got up early enough to see the Super Blood Moon Eclipse..


I cheered my team on to win the Super Bowl..


Sat outside soaking in the sun..


Got the 'Save the Date' notification from Adam & Jen..


Saw the blimp coming..


..and going..from the AT&T Pro-Am golf tournament in Pebble Beach..


I decided to jump on the DNA bandwagon.
No suprises here..
my Mom's side has the Scandinavian side,
and my Dad the European side.


Weather here has been perfect except on Sunday.
We had a terrible dust storm..


I'm still sneezing from it!

We celebrated Adam's 33rd birthday last night.
Almost got the fire department out with all those candles! 



Today we're heading north to Greg & Connie's again
George is going to wire their bathroom fan to the switch on the wall.

Life is good!

Ahhh, getting older isn't so bad :)

Yanks RV Resort
Greenfield, CA

Sixty One. 61!
I remember in my younger days that I thought
that being in your 60's was so old!
Now I see my calendar and realize that I'm not
that far from filing for the magic paycheck!

My birthday started out with a nice dinner out.
One of our favorite places is Luigi's in nearby Gonzales.

We started out with a nice bottle of wine..


..and ordered some great pasta..


The waiter (with George's prompting)
surprised me with a dessert with a candle :-)


We shared it of course!


We were both stuffed, but it was nice!

Today I worked, George has Mondays off.
When I got home, this was waiting for me..


George sneaked out and bought
fixings for a nice dinner.


It also included a cake!


We're definitely going to have to up
our steps around the park now.

Tomorrow we're going with new friends
over to Monterey.
Wednesday we finally get to go up to see Connie and Greg!
Thursday I'm going up to see Mom and we're going
to the movies :-)

Busy birthday week!

Oh, and for those of you that don't see on Facebook..
my son Adam was just promoted to Pastry Sous Chef
at the 7D Steakhouse in Carmel.




I'm just a little proud :)
