Jan, We did not get to check out the Senior Center yet. We probably will not get to do it today (Friday) either. However, Monday I want to. I looked it up on line and they do have a lot of fun things to do. I am looking forward to going and checking it out.

It's been a trotting around day for me. I wanted to get to the store today to beat the tourists this weekend. Also got a new pair of walking shoes, then on to the bakery for cardamon bread. Could not find gjetost (a sort of sweet brown goat cheese)- it seems totally wrong on the weekend of Scandinavian Festival they would run out! Also got our entrance buttons for the festival.
DH and I got a good walk in this evening.
Patty, Congratulations on the new granddaughter. I haven't held a baby in forever so long but I remember how it feels.
Ann, It seemed forever to get from point A to point B in Crooked River. Bend and Redmond have been having a hard time. We were surprised to hear a nice home on the cliff overlooking the golf course was for sale at something like $164,000 and the taxes are something like $900/year. We pay more than twice that in property tax. That area has been a very popular place to retire.
Louise, Did you check out the senior center? Some have a lot of fun things to do.
Jan, we have been to Crooked River Ranch. One of the past members of our RVing group lived there. We drove up one time to visit them. Now I can't remember if they lived at the bottom near the river or at the top of the canyon. I'm thinking at the top. His eye sight was getting really bad and she had to do the driving. At one time they had a large trailer but down sized to a smaller motor home that was comfortable for her to drive. They eventually moved west to one of the larger towns to be near the VA hospital for his convenience. It was very pretty there. Now one of the couples that are the Pres. of our group summer in Redmond where they bought a house. When they are here they park their motor home in a very nice RV community with lovely landscaping sorta in a desert area. Once the group had a picnic there. They had an outside kitchen with grill, sink and refrigerator. Really very nice. I'm sure Redmond has grown since we were there.
Today we are having two window air conditioners installed. They will be installed into the wall. One in the living room and one in our bedroom. I don't know why I didn't know about putting them in the wall before as that solves our problem that they can't go in the windows. I know they won't get used for a while but if and when we get a heat wave we will be ready.
