October 19 – We arrived at TT Palm Springs Monday morning. We were greeted enthusiastically by Linda the Ranger. She said they had heard we were coming and were excited to meet us!! We were happy to be able to park in one of our favorite sites, next to the Pickleball courts. As we were parking, Linda’s husband Rick came over and introduced himself and extended another warm welcome to us. We really felt special!!

Rick and Linda.
While we were talking with Rick, a friend that we had met at TT Chesapeake Bay walked by. It was Joe of Pam and Joe. They are leasing an annual site here.

This morning I went out and played half a game with Rick and a couple other men. Then it started to rain. We stopped playing with a score of seven all.

Ken and I decided to go to the $1.50 Cinemark to see Salt -- A good way to spend a rainy afternoon. We really enjoyed the movie, an espionage thriller staring Angelina Jolie.

We had asked Pam and Joe to join us for the movie followed by Happy Hour at the Elephant Bar. They couldn’t make the movie, but we all had a great Happy Hour!!

On Wednesday morning the courts were almost dry so eight of us played.

From left to right: Lynn, Mary Jo, Ken, Old Friend Paul, Linda, Rick, and Roy another friend from the past.

And, on Thursday morning, we had a few more players.

From left to right: Paul from Wilderness Lakes, Ken, Bill who plays very well but we did not know him, Linda, John who says he plays but recently had hip replacement surgery, Roy, Cindy a new player, Paul, Faye, Dick from the past, and Rick.

It's been great to be back at TT Palm Springs!
