Our 10 days here in Casa Grande are coming to an end. It has been a good stop. The temps were in the 90s everyday. Thank God for our 2 AC units. The price was right too. We paid for a week ($90.00) and the special gave us 3 extra days. We do pay for the electricity we use, so we will find out what that is in a couple of days.
The only downside of being here, is that in the evening, it stinks! It must be an upper air movement causing some cow dairy somewhere to innundate us with the smell. After a week, we are kinda getting used to it ... almost. Some days are worse than others.
Casa Grande is actually a pretty good sized city. They have all the restaurants and shopping you could want. It is a nice clean area.
Last weekend, we drove into Tempe for their Oktoberfest.
The drive wasn't bad, Tempe is a cool city, and the park was nice. Not much of an Oktoberfest though. There was a carnival going on, some craft tents, and a band was playing. Not too German, I thought. They just wanted to sell you beer (American beer).
We did partake and bought a tasting punch card for $20.00. We shared the eight 4 ounce tastings between us. I enjoyed the Four Peaks Oktoberfest and Donna liked the Pumkin Porter.
I also have been getting my Medicare health insurance in order for 2018. I have gotten mine figured out, but we don't know what is in store for Donna this next year. I'm sure that costs are going up. It is a real pain.
Our friends, Tim & Bev drove over from Yuma and spent one night visiting us here in the park. We will see them again in a few days. We are heading towards Yuma Saturday. We plan on stopping one night at the Copper Mountain RV Park in Tacna to visit my sister. She and Cliff are working there again this year.
Looking forward to a little cooler weather.
Fergs .... out!
