|the Washington/Oregon/Idaho Potluck Dinner at midseason in Viewpoint|
|the Newly Wed Game that we won!|
|our jolly emcee!|
But, we won, getting 7 out of the possible 10. Questions were asked to test if each couple really knew each other! These are what we didn’t get: how long we dated before we got engaged, when we had our first real kiss, and whose wedding we attended last. This last one Bill got and I didn’t! But the first were dependent on the interpretation of date and kiss! Our prizes were sparkling wine, a box of chocolates and various implements for better love-making! Such fun!
|the vacation home of the Beckers|
On Feb. 13, we took a trip to Tubac, Arizona. We had been there before (please see http://rvcruisinglifestyle.blogspot.com/2012/12/ola-looking-for-base-in-arizona-tucson.html).
But, this time Oliver Becker, Bill’s brother from the Sigma Chi Fraternity at Pittsburg State University, was vacationing with his wife Kris at the lovely town. Tubac, about 50 miles south of Tucson and 150 miles south of Phoenix, is a nice little town with the first Mission of Anza and a town center made up of craft shops and fine restaurants.

Last night, we had the opportunity to participate in the Washington/Oregon/Idaho dinner. At the height of the season, snow birders from different states in the US or provinces in Canada get together in a party. I brought chef salad to contribute to the potluck. Most came from Washington and, of course, we hooted for the Seattle SeaHawks! But our friends from across our RV Kenny and Sharon were hosting a street party and we joined them after dinner for a cool chat around a campfire.

So when we accidentally came across Leisure World, we were wide-eyed about the possible new lifestyle! With 2,600 houses and lots around two 18-hole golf courses, two areas with tennis courts, and two clubhouse complexes in 19 acres of gated land, homes ranged from $100,000 to 500,000 with HOA dues that range from $239 to 431 a month. We have done two afternoons of home viewings there.
