Well, I’ve been at Jojoba just about a week now, and am pretty well settled in. Lots of mundane stuff to take care of like having the closing on the lot. More paper work. Yesterday I met with the Welcome Wagon Lady from the park, and got a reference booklet that covers just about any question a person may have about how to live here. Being in a park like this is really a major adjustment in my life, and I’m still trying to figure out how/where I’ll fit in.
With my back issues, I knew I would have a major purchase in my near future to help me get around up and down the hills here. Today my new ride was delivered.
Never thought I’d own one of these things… they’re for old farts. Well, I guess I’ve joined the club. It’s a used Club Car with new upholstery and batteries. I sure couldn’t afford a new one.
I added the very old towel to the seat so you know who doesn’t get the new upholstery all dirty. Emma is now transported in style to the dog park several times a day. It’s on the other side of the park. Today was her first ever ride in a cart, and she did very well. Only tried to jump out once!
The dog park is located on the side of a hill, and I park down behind that tree on the left by the gate. Emma, of course, finds the absolute furthest spot from the table and chairs to do her business. Why is that? So, I get my exercise marching up and down the hill. The socialization time she’s gotten with some of the other bigger dogs in the park is good for her. We tend to avoid the small ankle biter types. They don’t seem to appreciate Emma’s enthusiasm. If there are several small dogs around, I take her to the other dog run on the edge of the park. It’s not as popular.
While I’ve been busy getting ‘indoctrinated’, Merikay and Craig have been visiting here also. They had me over for a cookout the other night that was very tasty. I’m hoping to reciprocate before they leave in a couple of weeks. I was also planning to go to the water exercise class with Merikay tomorrow morning, but we’re having a bit of a cold snap here so I’m thinking of chickening out…
Thanks for stopping by… talk to you later, Judy
