Friday, November 23, 2012 (Midland LTVA, Blythe, CA)

We didn’t have a very eventful day today.  At about 10:00 we headed into Blythe to run a few errands.  Steve dropped me off at Albertson’s to do a little grocery shopping while he went in search of a haircut.  He wasn’t successful in getting his haircut but he did get the propane tanks filled and also went to Miller Park to get water.

He picked me up and then we thought we’d take a drive to the other end of the Hobsonway, the main street in Blythe.  We came across a Radio Shack store and since Steve had been trying to get some replacement batteries for the tire sensors, we stopped in.   We also stopped at the Verizon store to see about getting an antenna for the MiFi...apparently it’s an inexpensive way of adding a boost to the reception.  They didn’t have any so we’ll have to check at Best Buy when we get to Phoenix...we have to go there to get a new battery for the laptop anyway.

We were back home by 1:00 and after a bite to eat, I went across the way to invite Charlene and Dennis over for happy hour...we thought we would get the ‘campfire in a can’ out.  We spent the rest of the afternoon sitting outside reading our books.

Just before 4:00, we started getting ready for our guests...quite a breeze had come up so we decided to set up the campfire on the backside of the trailer, using the trailer as a windbreak.  As it turned out, as soon as the sun went down at 4:20, the wind died down...figures.

We had a great visit with our new friends as we sat around the campfire.  Before it got dark out, I said that I must go inside and get my camera...but unfortunately, I got talking and completely forgot!  So it was dark by the time we got a couple of pictures.

Well, our happy hour didn’t end until about 8:00!  The time just flew by as we sat chatting...what a great evening!
