In late October we left beautiful Vancouver Island and headed south. We spent four days in Salt Lake City where Maureen enjoyed doing Genealogy research at the Family History Center. We spent one day touring the Temple Square – fascinating.
Our bad luck seemed to follow us when a tire on the fifth wheel blew out on Interstate 15. A very kind stranger changed the tire for us. A few miles down the highway Mike puled into a truck stop where we were lucky to find a tire store. The owner advised us to replace the spare. When the tire was removed it was discovered that both shackles had completely broken off. The other side had one broken shackle. At that point we felt very lucky to have averted a catastrophe. All five tires were replaced, the shackles welded back on and we were on our way again.
Arrived in Palm Creek to find the park model in good shape. Mike resumed teaching Computer class and Maureen was back to Scrapbooking and Genealogy. Mike cooked a wonderful Prime Rib roast for American Thanksgiving. Arleen, Larry and Delores brought contributions to the meal.
In December we visited Irene in Mesa and Roy and Gaylene in Apache Junction.
This year we really decorated our Golf cart and won First Prize in the Christmas Parade. We are holding another Christmas Eve party at our place. Mike will prepare his “Famous” Gumbo. Arleen is planning a Turkey feast at their place on Christmas day. We are truly blessed to have such great friends!
