Yuma and Mexico

I forgot to post a picture in yesterday’s blog……. it is a poster that Mark and I saw in a store in Quartzsite, and we liked it. If you are tired of stepping in stuff left by other people’s dogs, you can capture it and print your own poster.

Now, on to what we did today. We woke up this morning, and since we had used up our three nights of ‘resort’ camping, we moved two miles closer to Yuma to the casino. Here are our new “digs”………..

After we relocated the Bus, it was on to Mexico, about 3 miles away, and a walk across the border. It costs $5 to park the car in a safe lot, and the crossing was free. Since it was Sunday, and the most of the eyeglass places and all of the dentists were closed, the traffic was light on the sidewalks. The vendors were still aggressive, and we purchased something for our grandson, two bottles of Peach Schnapps for Patsy and her friends, as well as some vanilla extract and other legal drugs at the pharmacy.

Here are a few Mexico shopping pictures……….

Crossing back was very easy with our passports, and there was not a line of people backed up. As soon as we got to the car, Mark called and said that some friends, Dave and Sandy were in town and at the place where they were staying. They were celebrating two ladies birthdays and cooking burgers, so we went over. Here is a picture of Dave (on left) and Sandy (on right), with Sue and Patsy in the middle. They stopped by and are on their way to San Diego.

The event was at the home of Ed and Lavonne, friends of Mark and Sue.

Our friends, Greg and Mandy, also showed up. We had seen them yesterday at the Burger Bash at Jag and Bev's home resort.

Here are more pictures of the party and Ed and Lavonne’s place. They have a nice place with a patio yard. In the second picture, you can see Dave and Sandy's rig out in the street……

A big thank you to Ed and Lavone (and Mark) for inviting us to the party!!

We left the party about 4:30 and headed back to “our” casino. We had registered yesterday for membership, and each received credit for $10 free play money. Before going back to the Bus, we decided to try our luck.

The rules were that you had to put at least one dollar in with the $10 credit to get it going. I put in $2 thinking that on the $$ machine, I would get 4 maximum bet plays. On the fourth spin, I hit $100, so I played one more spin, and Patsy made me quit!!! I cashed out for $102 (my winnings plus my original two dollars), and we tried Patsy’s free play. We hit a $10 win once, but kept playing until we went broke.

Our score for the casino was one night’s free dry-camping plus $100 cash. Not bad for a little fun. Now it Patsy hadn’t be with me, I might be a billionaire by now!!!

Tomorrow, we plan to head East to Gila Bend for one night, and then two nights in Tucson before heading back to Texas.
