Something new . . .

Here we are in North Palm Springs which is - just like one would think - north of Palm Springs. We got in last night after lots of wind coming across the high desert, but we arrived in one piece and it looks like it is going to be a fun month. We did some exploring today - lots of great little shops, lots of places to hike, restaurant choices, shopping, visiting - it will keep us busy. It is quite a bit different than our special little paradise site at the state park in Arizona, but we will enjoy it as well.

This is the view from the front window of Gus this morning. The lots here are very large and have nice landscapping put in by the lot owners. The owner of the lot we are renting lives is in the Seattle area and they didn't come south this year due to the arrival of a first grandchild. The resort has all of the amenities - large heated pool, gatherings, games, and friendly residents. It is all good.

My brother, John and his wife, Ann, adopted a little rescue dog the day before we left the Parker area. His name is Charlie and he is a Lhasa Apso. They drove over to Phoenix to pick him up and had just returned when they stopped to introduce him to our Kassie. She was only impressed with the doggie treats that came out when he arrived to visit. They had a little guy like this before and have missed him so I hope Charlie will be the same kind of good friend to them. He is in need of a lot of TLC starting with a trip to the groomers and some good groceries, but that will all come. This is his "before" picture.

I so admire people who help rescue dogs, I tried it once and it was a disaster. Enjoy the Palm Springs area!
