Happy Easter

Russ and I wish everyone a very Happy Easter.

We are still at Catalina Spa & RV Resort in Desert Hot Springs, CA. We have been here since Thursday 3/20 and are enjoying the park very much. A lot of the snowbirds have already left but there are still enough people here that we can have activities and dinners for at least another week.

On Thursday night we played "Card Bingo." It is played using playing cards and the dealer calls out card suites and numbers randomly. We played 15 games with the first 10 costing 10 cent per person and the last 5 costing 20 cent per person. I was lucky and won 1 1/2 games and Russ won the last game. We did add to our dime jug. We sat with Sue and Paul that night.

On Friday, Russ played in the poker tournament that they have here. There were 35 people playing amongst 5 tables. They were playing Omaha and buy-in was $10 plus $1 for jackpot. He did not win but was not the first out either. He enjoyed the play and camaraderie. While he was playing poker I was at the pool. The water was nice and the sunlight was great. Had to get some color into the white meat and I did.

Friday night at the clubhouse they had all you could eat "Spaghetti Dinner" with salad and garlic bread. For dessert we had pudding with whip cream and a cookie. The food was very good. Afterwards they had entertainment. Russ went down to play cribbage.

On Saturday, I made a trip to Wal-Mart and Kohl's for a few things. When I got back Russ was watching the Busch Race on TV and when that was over we went to the pool for a while. Met and talked with a number of nice people and heard that Time Warner had come in and taken out the cable TV last week. Catalina is suppose to be working on the problem. A lot of people were upset that they do not have the cable and they could not get in TV.

Dinner on Saturday night consisted of baked ham, scalloped potatoes, green beans with ice cream for dessert. Very good again. There was also a dance up in the clubhouse after dinner. We opted not to go but to just relax in our little house. It was a beautiful night with the moon out and a nice breeze blowing. I took a walk around the park at about 9:45 pm just because.

It is now Easter Sunday and Russ has made me a wonderful breakfast and then cleaned up the kitchen and picked up the living room. He is so good to me and I love him a lot for treating me like a queen.

He decided that he would go down and play some pool and I decided that it was time to put some more color on this white meat. I went to the pool for about an hour and a half. I then came home and changed so that we could go up to the ice cream social and then the jam session. Both were fun and we really enjoyed. Jam session got over just in time for hamburgers. A really good meal and for only $4. Thanks folks for feeding us really well this weekend.
