Today, Chuck and Jan planned a gathering of a group of "Boomers". For those who aren't familiar, the Boomers is a loosely organized group of rvers of a certain age. Actually, the age is really not important, since there isn't much rule-enforcement involved. Any member may decide at anytime to announce a gathering at a place of their own choice.
This particular gathering was a happy hour at the lot where we are in the Foothills in Yuma. Well, anyway, Jan put out the word on the Boomers Bulletin Board online and by word of mouth. And -- voila-- a party! Everyone brought a chair, a drink, a snack and came ready to share a good time.
About 25 friendly folks turned out. Before we knew it the happy hour had stretched to several hours. For Jerry and I it was nice to get reacquainted with a few friends that we haven't seen in quite a while.
For instance, here's the always-smiling-and-ready-for-a-game-of-Pegs-and-Jokers Ron who came in his best duds.
And Jerry's with Padraic, who besides generously providing us all with updates on tech issues, is always ready to capture a fantastic group photo. Great to see these congenial guys again - and many others.
We also had the opportunity to meet some new people. A few showed up for their inaugural Boomers' event. And some were long-time, loyal, leaders of this prestigious "club" that we have not had a chance to visit with along the road in the past.
As we have mentioned previously on the blog, the rving lifestlye never fails to bring together the gamut of folks who each have a unique story.
Many tales were told at this event, as usual, but they will be entrusted to the vault, to be retold and enhanced at the choice of the raconteur. (lol) You'll have to ask Jenny what was going on here. What happens with the Boomers, stays with the Boomers!
Thanks, Jan and Chuck, for hosting a fun evening.
