HAPPY NEW YEAR, EVERYONE!
We are currently in Tombstone, Arizona. We have been here since the
tenth of December. We love the town of Tombstone. This is where the
shootout at the OK Corral occurred. The slogan of the town is:
Tombstone, The Town That Was Too Tough To Die. The citizens of Tombstone
enjoy dressing up in Western garb quite often. We have attended the
Congregational Community Church of Tombstone. We attended the Christmas
Eve candlelight service, and it was beautiful. We have made friends with
many people here. We spent Christmas alone for the first time in 46
years. We had Christmas with Mattís family when we were there in
November, so the actual day seemed a little anti-climatic. We went to
the Christmas parade and the Christmas Tree Lighting program in
This week I bought Glen some official Western wear. Isnít he cute? (See
My cousin Herbie Huff and his wife Edna live about twenty miles from our
RV park, so they paid us a visit last week. We got to meet their
daughter for the first time. She is now 53!
We are enjoying our new RV. It seems each day we discover more bells and
whistles that we didnít know were in this rig such as an automatic
sensor on the patio awning. If the wind gets too strong, the awning will
automatically roll back up! (See attached picture).
The weather has been very pleasant, and I have been able to build
another dollhouse while we were here. (See attached picture). Working
outside is definitely a way to meet our neighbors. I think many of the
men are amazed to see a woman cutting, sawing, and building. In spite of
my dyslexia, with Glenís help, I have managed not to reverse too many
pieces and it actually turned out nicely.
We will be leaving here on the tenth of January and will start our trek
toward Morro Bay, CA with a stop in Phoenix to visit our friend Diana
Cunningham and a stop in Redlands to take care of a few business
details. We will be in Morro Bay until March 16 when we will return to
Redlands to pay our doctorsí their yearly visits. We will be in Redlands
for several weeks then.
Where we will go after that for the next couple of months is uncertain.
However, we know we will be in New Jersey for the summer. My fiftieth
high school reunion is June 3 in Frankenmuth, Michigan. I havenít
decided for sure, but we will probably attend that event.
It seems this year we have really been able to spend enough time in each
spot to get to know the people and the area better. We are grateful to
the Lord for the time He has given us to truly enjoy this lifestyle.
