|We were set up in little time.|
|It is great to meet up and exchange laughs.|
|Our favourite dog - Chico, the Portuguese Water Dog - was quick to greet us. His mom and dad are Hector and Diane but he sure seems to know us too. Great disposition.|
|Spending some fun times catching up on views and news!|
|Up early today - Tuesday - I stepped out to take this photo of the fog that enveloped us overnight.|

|Now this was a BIG SURPRISE! Allen and Lolita! (Right and centre right)|
No sooner had we entered the 7 Feathers Casino when a voice from behind addressed me by my first name. I turned around and quickly said hello to Allen from Allen & Lolita's RV Journey Although this was our first 'in person' meeting, it was as though we had known each other for years. We then met Lolita and shared some of their experience while visiting family in White Rock, BC, Canada. They also had the opportunity to have lunch with other Canadian west coast bloggers, BIG DAWG AND FREEWAY* Doug and Sue in Langley, BC.
Allen and Lolita are on their long drive back home to Corona, California. They chose to overnight at the casino hotel. Although they had written a comment on our blog of their overnight at the casino, I had not seen their comment before meeting in the casino. Sharp eyed Allen was quick to recognize Jeanette and I. Of equal interest was how he recognized our fellow RV friends from several of our blogs from our journey last winter. When I introduced Hector an Diane to Allen and Lolita, Allen quickly recognized Hector. Small, small world. This blog world sure can make for interesting meetings.
That said, we spent little time in the casino and Hector was kind to take a photo of Allen, Lolita, Jeanette and I outside the casino. Safe travel back home to Corona tomorrow you two!
Having read about Lolita's famous tamales - and all of the bloggers who have benefited from her fare - I suggested (as others have) that she could easily start a new business making and selling those in demand tamales.
Allen suggested that we should collect Rick Rick & Paulette's RV Travels , Hector and I and drive out to golf in the Corona area when we get into the Palm Springs/Desert Hot Springs area in late February/early March. So Rick, this is an early warning to keep your new clubs well rehearsed and shiny. We could well take Allen up on his offer.

It sure is fun to be back on the road.
Thanks for dropping by.
