We will no doubt be visited during out stay by other friends we have made on the road over the last ten plus years. On Tuesday we stayed around the coach because we were having a wash service come out to wash and wax the coach and car. The wash people showed up about 2:00 and finished the job in a couple of hours. We were not able to get all the lights put out before it was cocktail hour, so those will have to wait for another day. We had cocktails with our gang of ten on our patio, which has been designated as “party central” for this trip. After cocktails a couple of the other folks headed off for dinner at a Chinese place and we had dinner on our own. We would have had dinner with the Bullock's, but Peggy was a bit under the weather.

Tuesday, December 22, 2015, La Posa West LTVA, Quartzsite, AZ, Day 34, 0 Miles, 4,046. 3 Miles for the Trip. Warm overnight - I woke up to 51°F 6:00AM. A cool, cloudy day with not quite enough sun to bring the batteries back to full even with limiting the use of electricity. I thought I had one of those "emergency" sewing kits, but while I found three eyeglasses repair kits, no sewing kit. One of my brand new flannel shirts had a button fall off the first time I buttoned it (what do you want for $12. 00. ) I found a sewing kit for $1. 00 at the dollar store (where else. After sewing the button back on the shirt, I sat in the trailer and read.

We used a Mohs-hardness test kit to see how easily each screen protector scratched.

These protectors are widely...
