Tucson, Az at last

TUCSON, AZ, .  Well, it is April 26, 2015.  We spent 2 weeks at Desert Shadows rv park in Phoenix and I came down with a horrible cold, which has knocked the bejesus out of me.  We got a new windshield put in there and our slides adjusted and then left for Tucson.  While here at the Koa, where we have a long beautiful pull thru site with furniture, I continued with my  illness.  Finally yesterday we went to an urgent care center and it was diagnosed as a cold complicated with allergies, and today I feel a lot better.  This is our second week here and I intend to sightsee if it kills me.  Today it is cool and very windy and a little bit of rain.  Hopefully by the end of the week we will go out and I would like to visit some other rv parks in the Tucson, mesa area to plan our winter next season.  Well, like I said, nothing more to write except that we are getting things organized in our trailer and that is a plus.  Hope everyone is fine.  Signing off for now.

Well, it is April 10, 2015 and we have been here at the Fountain of Youth Spa rv park for 6 months.  The time has gone by so fast.  Tomorrow morning we are heading off to Phoenix, Arizona for the start of our summer trip.  We have to get another new windshield(don't ask), fix our sagging slide, a leak in our fresh water tank and other small items.  We will stay there a week unless there is a problem getting parts, or two weeks the most.  We will tour all of Phoenix, looking forward to museums, parks, etc.  And of course, EATING OUT, you see we are about 1 and a half hours to restaurants where we stay for the winter so we are going through withdrawal.  In Phoenix we can get pizza delivered and Chinese food, oh joy. 

Then we will continue on to Tucson, Az where we will visit Tombstone Territory, and all the movie sets for the westerns, lots of museums there too.

I have been to the dr. and had two minor surgeries done at the Eisenhower Center Hospital in Palm Desert.  They are a first class operation (pardon the pun), and treated me very nicely, guess I will be okay till I go back for a checkup next October.  While we were there we ate at the Manhattan Deli, it is the same one that is in Palm Springs, but this one is in Palm Desert.  The food was delicious.  I did all the laundry today 3 full bags, blankets, sheets in our laundry here so we are good to go.  Looking forward to driving to Phoenix tomorrow.  Should be about a 5 to 6 hour trip, and the weather will be great.
