Indio, California: While a few of his buddies are still in town for the wedding, DT spent the day golfing. Smart Man. I spent the day at our campsite while our contractor had the place crawling with guys fixing this, repairing that, adding this and replacing that.
There was also all sorts of excitement, in the RV resort this morning... which I will have to only explain to you as it happened too fast for photos. Since this resort has so much landscaping and so much water, it is a natural attraction for water fowl, and some of the water fowl are not particularly welcomed to this country club - especially the Canada Geese. Geese make a huge mess. They poop all over everything. A group of about a dozen geese were swimming in the water in front of our little boat dock. I really wasn't paying much attention to them because they were - for once - not pooping on our boat dock. Out of nowhere I hear a terrible high-pitched sceeeeeech and I see a small boat speeding towards the geese! It was a remote controlled speed boat, about three feet long. The geese took-off, making all sorts of racket as they took wing. But... as soon as the geese were in the air, a small remote controlled airplane-type thingy gave them chase! Half way down the canal, I noticed two men working remote controls, navigating those pesky geese right over the resort wall.
Probably across the street to yet another RV resort. Anyway, it was the highlight of my morning.
Added later: The goose-busters were at it again (after I had posted this column) and I was able to chat with two fellows from Coot N Goose Busters and snap a few photos.
A worker installed all the bathroom fixtures - towel bar, guest towel rack - with a matching toilet lever, and of course, this important piece of equipment: The television lifting system was situated and readied for a TV.
While going over everything with the electrician, I learned that there are lights in the glass cabinets next to the fireplace, the building has been pre-plumbed/wired for a misting system, there are all sorts of electronic devices situated to deter thieves and there is a heater in the bathroom.
Woody & Kathy are the only wedding guests left in town tonight. DT and I went to dinner with them this evening. So sad that the occasion has passed, but we are so pleased with the wedding - the flowers, the food, the wine, the hotel, the decor - and we are so happy Lisa and Lenny are married. We were overwhelmed that so many people from all around the world made the effort to travel to Palm Springs to celebrate Lisa & Lenny! Our hearts are filled with so much love. I will post a few more wedding photos soon, so until my next update, I remain, your improved correspondent.
