We are still at Catalina Spa & RV Resort in Desert Hot Springs, CA.

For the past day and a half the winds have really blown. It feels like we are on a road with hills and we are constantly losing our stomachs from the gust that hit from all sides. Yesterday afternoon you heard people out putting up the big awnings and then a while later everyone was putting up the smaller window awnings as it was getting rough.

Russ and I decided to go out and get a few things that we needed. We first stopped at the Post Office for our forwarded mail, then we went to Costco for a piece of pizza and coke for lunch beings neither of us had had any breakfast. We then picked up a few items there at Costco. Next stop then was to Wal-Mart to pick up a couple of small glasses for cocktails and tips for his pool cue.

Coming home I decided to take a different route just to find out where it would take us and if it would be better for us to take when we move to Thousand Trails on Thursday. We went up to Washington, then turned on Thousand Palms Drive over to Dillion to Corkill. Either way is just about the same so will see which was Russ wants to go in the morning.

Last night we went up to the clubhouse to the CATALINA Spa Dune Buggy Derby and had a good time. What this is is that they have a board set up with six little Dune Buggys. There are two officials that roll dice with descriptions on them that match each buggy. You bet 25 cents on which Dune Buggy is going to win. It was a lot of fun. I think Russ and I came out about $1.50 ahead. Last night was the last race also of the season.

Tonight Russ and I went up to the weekly potluck dinner. There were a lot of Italian dishes and everything was really good. We enjoyed hearing where everyone was from and what they were going to do for the summer. Most were headed back to their homes for the summer. There were a few of us who are full-timers and will be hitting the road for new destinations.

I am going to close for now and go and watch "The Moment of Truth" on TV. Some of these questions are and will get many people in deep water.

Take care and have a wonderful evening. Will see what in out there for tomorrow.
