It seems once again time has gotten away from me when it comes to doing these entries.  After a great 8 days in Quartzsite we headed back to Desert Hot Springs.  We spent the next 9 days hanging out with Ann's parents at the Bob Hope Classic Charity Golf Tournament. 

This is a 5 day event that turned into a 6 day event because of inclement weather. The tournament is an annual event and is played on four different courses.  It is a combination of pros, amatuers and celebrities.  The first couple of days we had the courses to ourselves, no other spectators wanted to brave the cold, wet and windy weather.  After a days delay the sun decided to make an appearance and we finished off with 3 beautiful days.  I'm not a big fan of golf but I am a big fan of sunshine!    Would I attend again?  You betcha, I'd go back in a heart beat and I would recommend anyone with the slightest interest in golf to do the same.  ( Here's a link to the tournament site if you are interested. - )

Once done with the tournament we packed up the house and headed out to Lake Havasu City in Arizona.  We've only had a few days here and the first couple were a bit on the crummy side, weather wise.  I hate to say it but I've become a bit of a home body when the wind is blowing and the skies are gray.  I guess I've been at this fulltime lifestyle long enough to realize that if I don't get it done today there is always tomorrow!

Well, the sun came out yesterday and I promptly moved myself outside to the patio for a day a reading and soaking up the vitamin D.  Ken was, of course, out golfing!  To each his own I guess on the best way to spend a day in the sun!

Today we ventured out to take a look at this towns 'claim to fame' - the London Bridge.  This bridge is based on the 1831 built London Bridge which spanned the River Thames in London, England until it was dismantled in 1967. The Arizona bridge is a reinforced concrete structure clad in the original masonry of the 1830s bridge, which was bought by Robert P Mccullough from the City of London. McCulloch had exterior granite blocks from the original bridge numbered and transported to America, in order to construct the present bridge in Lake Havasu City, a planned community he established in 1964 on the shore of Lake Havasu. The bridge was completed in 1971 along with a canal, and links an island in the Lake with the main part of Lake Havasu City.

Tomorrow finds us hitting the road once again.  We are off to Mesa for a weeks stay and visit with Ken's mom.  Lets hope the weather cooperates, we both really need to work on our tans and I, for one, am not going to do it until the thermometer reads at least 75 degrees!
