Happy New Year to all.....may 2018 bring you happiness, much love and peace.   We closed out 2017 by sitting home and watching old movies, went to bed early, awakened at midnight with the sound of fireworks (and probably a few guns shots in the air).  Fell back to sleep and didn't get up till late Monday morning.   We drove to Scottsdale and met up with our old caregiver, Kelly, at the casino and had the brunch buffet......wasn't sure that was a good way to start the year, but Gary really was dying to go to a casino.   lol   Since we moved about 45 min. from where we used to live, it's not a weekly nor monthly thing to do any more.

 

My youngest sister and her hubby were around the end of November and most of December, before moving on with their RV to Tucson.   We spent Thanksgiving with them at our middle son's home in the Phoenix area, and they came here for Christmas Day dinner.   We drove over to the RV park where they were staying in San Tan Valley and saw their new motor home and had a bbq with them one day, and another day I took them out to a local biker restaurant (The Gallopin Goose) for their anniversary.   We also met up one night at the Tumbleweed in Eloy, where our good friend CC Collier was entertaining, and his wife Pat got Gary out on the dance floor in his wheelchair.    He really enjoyed that evening, as he got to dance with Pat, my sister, me and even with his caregiver, Carmen.   He thought he was the life of the party that night.    lol   My brother-in-law did some repairs for us around the house and we enjoyed the time we were able to spend with them.  December went by really fast for us.

 

Hoping everyone made it through the holidays okay and looking forward to a bright new year.

Sarah, having family around can give you such a good feeling, so glad you got to have that for a while. I can imagine Gary's delight in being the centre of attention on the dance floor. Thanks for the update, always good to hear your news.
