Ho hum, it seems I am always apologizing for being behind in my posts, as I am now. Here we are, at our place in Yuma and it is in late February and this poor old blog is stuck somewhere in October at the pumpkin patch. Sooo, I will attempt to get us up to date! The reason I am doing this now is because we are going to have another adventure this summer when we go to work at West Yellowstone KOA in mid May, so I need to get this updated, so I can share with you our adventures on our way up to the park, when we leave here April 1.
When I left you last, I wanted to include a few more pics of our

So, the big animals made us laugh and helped pass the long days when hardly any customers came in. The last day was pretty cloudy and few customers really came in to buy that many pumpkins. Our boss kept popping in from time to time to gather bales of straw, corn stalks, pumpkins and the animals when they had room. He was decorating his yard for his Halloween party that he throws every year for his neighbors and friends. Of course, we were invited too, if we wished to come.
Picking up the goats was no big deal and picking up the first pig wasn't too bad...until it came to getting the last pig. Finally, Ron went in there with the cage they came in and tried to coax it with some pig food. He got her close enough to the cage for the other two guys to surround her and put her in the cage. Our boss said it was the quietest and easiest transfer of pig to trailer he's seen. Unfortunately, during all the grabbing of animals, we didn't have our camera handy for pictures.
We left the lot for the last time on Thursday, the 1st of November and pointed the bus toward Sacramento. Now, we are parked at fellow Boomers, Ron & Carol Leonard's house to visit

Today, we drove to old town

the shops and had lunch at Fat City. The lunch was delicious and since I wasn't able to have a drink on my birthday, I had something called a Godiva
After lunch, we wandered into a salt water taffy store and bought some different flavors, then, went into a chocolate factory where Ron bought some dark chocolate almond bark and then, we all had some ice cream! Talk about a sugar rush!!!
Tomorrow, our friends will take us on a tour about their town as well as doing some other stuff, so I will wait to post about that.
