For those who arrived Thursday, (and this time we
did), we all went out to a nice Mexican restaurant
across the street from the park.
Friday morning found us in the club house for
donuts and coffee and we received the first two of
our cards for poker. Everyone left to pursue their
own pursuits for the day. We met back up in the
club house for appetizers. Afterwards some of us
spent the night around a nice campfire where many
childhood stories were swapped.
Saturday morning saw us enjoying Mickey D’s and
then we all stayed for our meeting. Jeff held it all
together even though he was missing most of his
officers (Jerry was there). Guest were Phil and Diane
Chitwood. Eileen and Wayne Norwood were voted
in as new members. Afterwards we all went our
separate ways. Dinner was Lasagna and Penne pasta.
The 50/50 was won by Russ and Barb. The wagon
masters, Adrienne, Bill, Lois and Daryl put on a great
poker night (I’m not saying that just because we
won). Jeff was the overall big winner. He told me
later he never wins so I guess he was making up for
it. The “flop” was exciting and many came close to
winning. Everyone was invited to a campfire and the
circle was expanded many times as more and more
joined in.

Sunday breakfast was in the club house and it was the
leftovers from Friday. There were many hugs and
goodbyes as half of us were leaving. Many had Super
Bowl parties to get to after arriving home.
It’s always nice to see old friends who haven’t been
around for a while.
So with many hugs and words of farewell, we left to
face the STRONG winds. I hope everyone made it

home safely.
I’m trying to come up with a closing. What do you
think of these:
Happy Trails (I live near Apple Valley)
See ya down the road
Drive Safe
See you in (name of next campout, or as I
say relocation)
Let me know what you think.
In the ongoing saga of pinochle, the boys were on a
long winning streak. Then it turned (the worm) and
the girls were winning. It turned (that pesky worm)
in Hemet big time. I dealt (yes me!!) Gary a double
run, aces around and a double pinochle!! In the next
game Terry dealt himself a double run and I ended
up with a double run during another hand. We
should have gone to Soboba after that!! Now Kathy
wants her double run!!
Jeff and all his loot (yes, that includes you Trish).
We apologize in advance for any errors you may find
and yes Martha we know you’re married to Dave. I
guess you all want this newsletter published because
no one has complained about errors.

A private jet arrives at Heathrow international
airport and Donald
Trump strides to a waiting limousine which drives
him to a warm and
dignified reception from the Queen. From there,
they are driven in a
1934 Bentley to the edge of central London
where they change to a
magnificent 17th century carriage hitched to six
white horses.
They continue on towards Buckingham Palace
waving to the thousands of
cheering Britons; all is going well.
Suddenly, the right rear horse lets fly with the
most horrendous
earth-shattering fart ever heard in the British
Empire. The coach
shakes, the smell is atrocious and both passengers
in the
carriage must use perfume-dipped handkerchiefs
over their nose, but
they do their best to ignore the incident.
The Queen turns to Trump saying, "Mr. Trump,
please accept my regrets.
I am sure you understand there are some things
that even a Queen
cannot control."
Trump, with his usual diplomatic aplomb, replied,
"Your Majesty, do
not give the matter another thought.
Until you mentioned it, I thought it was one of
the horses."

A dog lover, whose dog was a female and "in
heat', agreed to look after her neighbor's male
dog while the neighbors were on vacation.
She had a large house and believed that she could
keep the two dogs apart.
However, as she was drifting off to sleep she
heard awful howling and moaning sounds, rushed
downstairs and found the dogs locked together in
obvious pain and unable to disengage, as so
frequently happens when dogs mate.
Unable to separate them, and perplexed as to what
to do next, although it was late, she called the vet,
who answered in a very grumpy voice.
Having explained the problem to him, the vet said,
"Hang up the phone and place it down alongside
the dogs. I will then call you back and the noise of
the ringing will make the male lose his erection and
he will be able to withdraw."
Do you really think that will work?" she asked.
"Just worked for me," he replied.

Frank and Dianne were in a local shopping center
just before Christmas.
Dianne suddenly noticed that Frank was missing,
and as they had a lot to do, she called him on is cell
Dianne asked, "Frank, where are you? You know
that we have lots to do."
Frank said, "Do you remember the jewelry store we
went into about 10 years ago, and you fell in love
with a diamond necklace? I could not afford it at
the time, and I said that one day I would get it for
Little tears started to flow down Dianne's cheek,
and she got all choked up.
"Yes, I do remember that shop," she replied.
"Well, I'm in the Hooters next to that."

Avocados and milk.
A wife asks her husband, "Could you please go
shopping for me and buy
one carton of milk and if they have avocados, get
6. A short time
later the husband comes back with 6 cartons of
milk. The wife asks
him, "Why did you buy 6 cartons of milk?"
He replied, "They had avocados."
Note: If you're a woman, I'm sure you're going
back to read it again!
Men will get it the first time. My work is done here.
