ON THE ROAD AGAIN travel blog


Last night was the first night I signed up for the Saturday Night 8 Ball Tournament and I should have just through my $10 into the breeze that was feeding the fire about 3 miles north of us blazing on both sides of Highway 86.

First about 8 Ball.....I was up first playing against Ann, the park manager, and it was near the end of our game and I thought that I only had the 8 Ball left on the table. I made a fantastic shot and played the corner pocket and sank the 8 Ball only to find out that I still had 2 balls left on the table. The only 2 balls....I thought they were Ann's. I went from being so proud thinking that I made that fantastic shot and winning the game to a complete idiot and embarrassed that I was actually in another world and not really paying attention to the game.

In this match, the losers have a last attempt to win a little of the pot at the end so it was the end of the tournament and my opponent and I were down to the 8 Ball left on the table......you guessed it....I scratched on the 8 Ball. Bummer....

OK, I'm going to blame it on the fire that glowing red in the night sky up the highway from Oasis Palms RV Park here in Thermal, Ca.

It was about 300 acres in size and Judy wanted me to move the F550 in position "to hitch up" if we needed to in a hurry in the middle of the night. I totally agreed with her and moved the truck and Jeep just in case. The firefighters had it somewhat contained before I went to bed and I still had a good night sleep even though I was whimpering about losing the pool tournament. There's always next Saturday for another match.

Having fun our last two weeks in Sunny SoCal.
