The Border is Open!!

WHERE ARE WE? Pahrump, Nevada 
NEXT DESTINATION? Maybe Telephone Cove, Nevada

Another gorgeous day in the desert.  We are so happy to be here enjoying the warmth.  We are one of the snowbirds that paid $2000.00 for an extra month of warmth and we have never looked back, however we are super glad for those snowbirds that had the faith to wait for the border to open.  Well it finally did and by all reports it went from fantastic and fast to great with a wait.  Our friends from home wrote this on my FB post.

And another post by another good friend of ours.   We are happy to hear that life is slowly returning to normal.  

And Dave Oakey who is the host of our "Music in the Park" at CJ's in the summer, has made it to Mazatlán where he will be performing for the Winter.    We hope to be able to catch up with him on our way to La Penita next month. 

If you are in Mazatlan and are downtown look him up.  He may be hanging around MaCaws making music with his friends.

Harold had a project on the books for today.  They have had some comments on the fact that the Jeep lights are not visible while towing because the bikes they carry on the back hide them.  He wanted to add a set of lights to the bike rack so this sort of thing doesn't happen.  It took a little doing, but between the two of us we got the job done.  

Kyra and her friend Evelyn came for coffee today and we decided to go out for supper.  I have no idea why, but I didn't even get a picture until supper time. After our nice visit, Harold and I went for a walk.  

Then we had some time to hang out in the sun and even time for a short nap.  We are waiting for Chuck and Angie to show up.  

After my nap Chuck and Angie landed in the circle.  They are looking forward to spending some time exploring Death Valley I think.  Chuck took some time to relax and Angie and Sue needed some catch up time.

We all gathered at Mom's Diner for supper.  Good old country style food.  I need some of that once in a while.  The food was good and so was the service and the company.

I loved the little sign at the till.  Our CJ's motto is "Good Food, not Fast Food!"  Sometimes us restaurateurs have to be honest. 

We had a great time and by the time we left it was quite dark.  My little marketing mind looked up and saw the sign for the restaurant was dark, which in my mind is not good marketing.  But I must admit they were busy the whole time we were there, so maybe the food speaks for itself.  But I bet a light would not do any harm.

Another good day behind us.  Hope yours was too!!


  1. Haha i guess you can feel our excitement as the rest of us cross that border. Eh?? 😄
    So you're going to Mexico, we're sad we won't see you this winter again but we also know it is what you love. We'll be following in your blog though!
    I agree about the sign.

    1. We are not going for another month or so. What part of the SW are you heading for?

  2. It's about time they opened the border, they should have done it a long time ago when Canada opened it to U.S. travelers.

  3. Another great weather day for you. Enjoy your stay.
