This morning it was forecasted to be cloudy with a high of 72, but when I looked out I could see blue sky and sunlight around the edges of the clouds. After the hot days we have had I won't mind a little cloud cover.After breakfast, I mentioned to Yuma that today was bath day and I get that "poor me" look.
It was a little after 11 o'clock when Yuma and I jumped in the Jeep to get gas and a quick stop at Home Depot to look for a hinge for the screen door that needs to be replaced.
I had just pulled into a parking place at the Home Depot when I heard "Doug, Yuma is that you?" I couldn't tell where it was coming from and then this young lady comes up to the window and I recognized her, but of course her name didn't just come falling out of my old befuddled brain.
She says she couldn't believe that she and her husband had just run into us. They had been thinking of us and wondered if were out here this year. They mentioned their names and they were Liz and Toby. Last March when I was waiting to have my solar panels installed they were having theirs installed.
We were both parked in the same lot so got to know each other for the days we were there waiting for our solar panels to be installed. Liz and Toby are a very young couple in their late 20s or early 30s and they have a 24 foot trailer and were just starting out their lives as full-timers. They also had a young pup too.
I had texted them when I first got to Yuma, but didn't hear back. They had changed phones and had a new number so we lost contact. They are staying about five miles from where I'm staying so we made plans to get together soon and catch up. Amazing how small the world is for RVers.
Returned home and laid out in my lounger and watched the hummingbird go back and forth visiting my feeder. Just one. Hoping more will come later.
Around 4:30, Yuma and I headed over to the tent for this evening's happy hour.
Looking south down American Girl Mine Wash. If you look carefully, you can see the White Lion through the bushes right center.
It's amazing how you can run into people, when you least expect it. I'm sure you all will enjoy catching up. That tent has become a popular place. A beautiful sunset tonight.ReplyDelete
Yes it was surprising. The tent is a good meeting place.Delete
That is so cool, fate, to run into your young friends again. When contact #'s get lost in the shuffle of living, there are many missed connections. Chance meetings like that are wonderful!ReplyDelete
Looks lovely and warm, just my cup of tea. :)
Yes. I had wondered if they made it a year traveling in a trailer. Now I know they made it 😀Delete
I love it when that happens ... you run into someone you know in the desert. It's nice to not always be alone. Cooper and Yuma have a lot in common ... that LOOK when it's time for a bath! LOLReplyDelete
It is a look of pure misery isn't it. I had wondered about those two. I would think full-timing at such a young age would have challenges.Delete
How awesome to run into Liz and Toby again! Small world. Great pictures and everyone looks happy and relaxed! Love the sunset picture!ReplyDelete
Thanks Shirley. It is a small world for sure. We are in a relaxed mode now with not a lot happening.Delete
A little serendipity is always fun. Beautiful sunset after the gathering in the 'Big Tent'. Are the steps working properly now?ReplyDelete
We are relaxing for sure. The steps are not fixed but I can make them do what I want so good enough for now 😌Delete
How awesome to meet up with Liz and Toby. And they are close by is even better. Yesterday we went shopping in the Foothills and I felt like we were going to see you. But it was your other friends instead. It's all good. I sure like that tent!ReplyDelete
The tent is a nice extra room to have. You were partly right about the meeting. Maybe next time.Delete
