Father’s Day & Friends
Happy Father’s Day to all the amazing men in our lives! Wishing everyone the very best!
This past week has been a blessing of friends visiting us here in our little campground… Sandie & Jim arrived on Monday, and Tina & Jeff pulled in the next day. We had been fortunate to see Sandie & Jim several times this past year and, as always, enjoyed the time with them. It had been just over a year since we last saw Tina & Jeff… way too long to not be with people we enjoy so much! Really good to catch up with them again!
The guys took a drive “up river” one day to see how the river is settling… fishing should soon be good! And, since there was a photo taken of the guys, we got one of us gals, too.
Here’s a nice shot of Tina & Jeff along the Green River. We had great visits, and are truly honored to have had both couples here!
All in all, things continue well for us here. We are a bit surprised that it is colder here than Southern Colorado. At about the same elevation, we were expecting it to be more similar to that area. But, then again, you really never can know about weather. Our first month has been a mix of sunshine, clouds, drizzle, more sunshine, wind… you name it. Even a few snowflakes yesterday! Rapid changes, and uncertainty minute to minute. But, we are enjoying life here! Tom just about has all the sites mowed and trees watered… finding a rhythm and keeping on top of tasks. Had eight campsites occupied one night! Usually just a few. Still watching for the Killdeer eggs to hatch, saw three moose the last day Tina & Jeff were here, and the Osprey put on quite a show eating fish on top of a power pole near our home. Oh, yeah… and many baby Pronghorn! Too cute!
And, Carol Ann asked about our pets and commented that she hadn’t seen any photos of them recently. Well, here are some new ones. Maggie (cat) is particularly happy to come and go, roam around and catch mice. Nell (dog) has to follow the same leash rules as campground visitors, but she enjoys great walks with us and some free time to play. She’s good about staying on the porch and playing “guard dog.”
Well, that’s about it for now… friends Becky & Dave arriving on Thursday! Yippee! Hope to have fish photos soon!!! So nice to be able to take care of our duties and enjoy visits with friends at the same time! Looking forward to other RVers dropping by later.
Best wishes to each of you out there, and thanks for “traveling” along with us! We are blessed!
Hugs, Dianne & Tom
