Jan 24 – Today is our last day at TT Wilderness Lakes for this time around. We leave tomorrow for TT Palm Springs. We were so glad when our friends Karen and Bruce were able to adjust their travel and TV Football schedules to be here at Wilderness Lakes with us for a couple of days. We have known Karen and Bruce for years, but really got to know them when Bruce and Ken were partners in the Men’s Pickleball Tournament up at TT LaConner in September.

Karen and Bruce came over to our place Sunday night and we taught them our favorite card game – Euchre!! It’s a really fun game and brought lots of laughs trying to keep it straight that the Jack of the trump suit and the Jack of the same color in a different suit are stronger than the Ace! And keeping score using two cards rather than pencil and paper brought a lot of “Now, what’s our score??”

That was a fun evening!!

Monday morning found Bruce out on the Pickleball court. Unfortunately, Ken and Bruce did not have a chance to renew their Tournament partnership. May tomorrow morning before we leave

On Monday morning, our good friend Kerry (of Kerry and Rick), stopped by for a few games of Pickleball. Kerry and Rick live in San Juan Capistrano. We had a great time when we visited them a number of years ago to see the Swallows Come Back To Capistrano. Kerry had suggested we come the weekend of the big Parade instead – that was more fun. Besides, all the residents do everything they can to keep the Swallows from coming back!!!

We were delighted to see Kerry again and play a game with her. Kerry has not lost her Pickleball skills even though she spends her time now doing triathlons!!

After our match: Ron, Faye, Kerry, Ken.

Here she is in action with Ron!!

Thanks for stopping by Kerry. We missed you Rick. Let’s all get together real soon!!!
