The good news is we had a great potluck Thanksgiving Day dinner with about 50 other people from the Yuma Proving Ground Fam Camp. The bad news is we have no leftovers. Unless you count salad, which was our contribution. It was a very good salad made of spinach, arugula, iceberg lettuce, cherry tomatoes, red and yellow peppers, broccoli, pickled beets, cucumber and avocado. But a salad nonetheless.
The other food was wonderful. And of course there was a lot of it. We sat with a fun and interesting couple, Gene and Molly, who live in Idaho (although Molly is originally from Minnesota). The conversation eventually veered to a favorite full-timer topic: RV near disasters, as in “So and so pulled out of their campsite while still hooked up to the electricity and water” and “An RV was on the road behind us and the slides popped out.”
Hope everyone had a Thanksgiving full of kindness. We are grateful for our families (who were in our thoughts today - we love you), our friends, and to be able to be on the road.
