I've already met Betty and her son, Rick, who are camped behind The Palms - she couldn't be nicer, and we've had a few great conversations. She is camping with her adult son and also has a little Yorkie, Candy, who is darling. Rick was a very good neighbor last evening - when Katie and I were out for a walk, I heard him yell, "Coyote!" I yelled, "Where???" and he pointed at a very healthy coyote trotting along across the way from us. Check out Denise's blog - she got a photo when she was standing on her roof, hopefully she will post it.
We have lots of little lizards here, but this guy was really big and meaty looking.
Then the other day the neighbor across the road from us came over. I was checking my generator oil, putting on my tire covers, etc. after coming home from town. I guess her husband thought he saw me with my head in my hands, and sent her over to see if I needed help. How nice was that? Actually, I was fine. It was windy and since my hair is getting longer, I was probably just trying to tuck the flying hair into a headband.
Yesterday I was in the kitchen making potato salad, fixing shrimp for dinner, cleaning up, etc. and Katie kept barking. I didn't see anyone outside and my couch shades were down due to the sun shining in. I went outside, and what did I see?
A big Class A right alongside The Palms with Denise sitting in the shade on her step, and Bennie right there with her. Her motor home's engine must really be quiet, because I didn't hear a thing. I snapped this photo as they were driving away to their new site.
Katie likes to sleep with her head on her toys - here she is sleeping on her ball:
Or... she tucks her face in under a pillow - that's what she did during this nap:
Katie and Bennie got along just fine, both got a cookie, and I'm looking forward to Katie having a dog in the area that she likes. Not that she doesn't like Candy the Yorkie, but Bennie is calmer and I think Candy is a little too friendly and scares her a bit.
We chatted for a little bit, then Denise moved on to find a good site in the area. Denise, I'm glad you made it down here, and I hope you have a fun, very uneventful stay this season. :)
Katie and I walked over later in the day during our evening walk to say hi, and I got to help Denise get her motorcycle out of the motorhome. She has a custom made 3-piece ramp that attaches to the garage door when it's down. It's quite a setup.
