On the motorcycle front, I did end up having to ride it to the Kawasaki dealer in the small city of Beaumont, CA - west from Palm Springs. It was a struggle to get it there.....but I did manage. The motorcycle shops in the Palm Springs/Palm Desert area could not find the problem. Nor did they have the proper testing equipment. Ho Hum....!

On the way back to Desert Hot Springs, I drove into the Sands RV and Golf Resort and, as luck would have it, we got on the course almost instantly. Hector and I were joined by two other fellas and we enjoyed a short 9 holes of golf.
|Hector and Diane were hosting dinner for some of their family members.....and.....yes....they invited me to join them. Several family members are missing from this photo.|

|Just so beautiful....|

|Courtney sent this recent photo of Owen to Jeanette who then sent it on to my email. The little fella is thriving and is now weighing in at 11 lbs.|
OK.....soon to move on with getting a few chores done and then I'll have to plead with Hector or Diane (or both) to offer up a ride to get me to Beaumont tomorrow (Friday) to retrieve my motorcycle.
On with today.
Thanks for dropping by.
