Indio, California: Captain Jim and Mary have finally arrived back to Indio... from their vacation-within-a-vacation in Maui. Captain Jim had a decal made to name their new boat:

Desert Duck
Is that awesome, or what?

Desert Duck

It is even better when you see the Desert Duck arriving at the dock in front of your campsite to welcome you onboard for a cruise through the resort.

Yeah, that happened.

Dave and I are so happy to have our fellow Ducks back in Indio!

I attended the "Stitch & Bitch", a very humorous name for group of ladies who gather in the club house once a week to sew, knit, bead, cross stitch, embroider, needlepoint (I'm a needlepointer)... or whatever their craft may be. Lots of stitching occurs, but there is no bitching. What, exactly, do we have to complain about? The weather?

Fellow campers recently mentioned they did not know how to make a martini. What? What? What? It's like telling me they couldn't make toast. They needed to be schooled.

I froze martini glasses, skewered a few olives and set about explaining/teaching how to make a very decent martini. (Because I am a kind and considerate hostess, the cocktail was also produced with vodka, but I refuse to call that version a martini. A martini is made with gin.)


If you are going to sip a martini you had better have a little something in your belly - shaved asparagus with gruyere on puff pastry. My students were also served a smoked tuna spread with crackers.

There was a limit of one martini per person, but I think a few of my students may have cheated.

Until my next update, I remain, your shaken - not stirred -  correspondent.
