The leftover mash and cabbage will go towards making Bubble and Squeak for tomorrow's breakfast.

In the meantime, Sue had home made Tamales from Patagonia. What a cosmopolitan couple we are!


Bangers, mash, cabbage, bubble, squeak and tamales.
Sounds like a hot tub party with a side smorgasbord!
It was grand, I'm sure.

Thanks to our international travelers Sue, Martin, Earlene and Wayne I had an introduction to Thai cuisine Sunday night! I really enjoyed the subtle flavors and the interesting inedible plants like bamboo, lemongrass and lime leaves that flavored the soup. And the egg rolls were probably the best I've ever tried. Of course I couldn't eat it all so I brought some home.

Sena saw the container of Thai soup in the fridge and insisted on having some. Uncertain how she would like it I only gave her about a tablespoon of the liquid. At first she lifted up the small bowl and tasted the contents with just the very tip of her tongue. Her reaction was rather mixed and I thought maybe it was too cold. When I asked for the bowl back to warm it she took it up to her space on the cabover where I couldn't reach it. "It's mine and you can't have it."

I watched as she found one of her spoons (the 4" plastic tasting spoons I bring home from Costco) and dipped it into the soup. This time she licked soup out of the spoon, but she was still acting puzzled -- as if she couldn't decide if she liked it or not. I returned to what I was doing and later found the bowl abandoned which means she decided she didn't like it.

As for me, I loved it! But it doesn't love me. Right as I got home Sunday pm I had a reaction that was much like lactose intolerance. When I searched online I found that many people are coconut milk intolerant. Boo Hiss! There is not a pill like Lactaid to help so next time I'll have the soup without coconut milk in it.

We have moved to Snyder Hill -- the BLM land SE of Tucson. The sun is finally out, but the wind is rather fierce. :-( We are staying in today recovering, but I plan to get out and see the sights of this area, which are numerous.

I sure miss my Mutey sisters and brothers!
I'm so sorry you had such a lousy reaction! Ruined an otherwise lovely evening, which was more fun shared.

We alerted Dave and Deb that you and Martin are there somewhere. She said something about a gin and tonic.

Love your capture of the collonade w/its shadows. And the flowers, of course, are always a welcome sight out here.

Ok, I finally figured it out.

I use the IRV2 full site on my iPad. Up until today there has always been a quick reply box at the bottom of every page. I never used the quick reply button that is at the bottom right side of every post.

Well guess what has disappeared? My handy dandy quick reply box. I was having to go to the app to reply. Talk about putting a muzzle on me. I know some will be sad to know my muzzle has been removed but I'm relieved to have my voice back.

Change gets harder to handle every year.

Actually, it wasn't that bad. I guess you could say it was a quick solution to an unknown problem and I was back to normal in a matter of minutes.

Nothing short of an emergency room visit would have diminished the lovely time with good friends. I look forward to enjoying the coconut milk free version of that soup. I bet the flavors will be even more delightful -- with zero after effects.

Oh good! She has a special tonic, and I have an elderflower cordial to add. I'd hate for us to have missed all that. We may be flyin low!

Debbie, if you're reading this, we are in site #321. On the left as you drive in, out in the boonies near the dragstrip. The scenic area ....! 🏎 🏁 😎

Well, today the "goal" was to get as close to the Florida RV park as possible and I'm about an hour away at a Pilot for the night. Fueled up so good to go in the a.m. Yesterday I was "driven" to a big mileage day so today was actually less than yesterday, especially since I stopped before 11 pm tonight! Tomorrow we'll roll into the RV park, setup and I'll still have most of the day off to enjoy, maybe take a bike ride.

I will say, after leaving that dry desert and rolling into TX, from there on, the temperatures were nice and warm. I still find it hard to believe the desire to sit in such cold over winter months when there are places much warmer! LOL

So how was the Tucson GC? We thought about you!

Life is good as park hosts. We'll be taking a 6 month break from hosting to spend time with friends in KY, kids in MI, cousins in MN, and Mutants in OR. Then it's back to Texas for a hosting gig Oct - Dec.

We've loved being near our grandkids! Gwen will be 3 in May. Here we are on the way to the playground....

Take care, Carl. The Mooning is looming.
You have proven you Mutanity in making Flor-Izona twice a week.
I think it's appropriate. and I'd suggest a nickname ...."Coast to Coast Carl" aka "CCC"
