Saturday, February 9, 2013—The Dog Days of BPVRV Resort

Another beautiful day in paradise.

Yesterday was so filled with activities that I forgot to mention installing the Phoenix RC flight simulator on the new computer. After installing the software and hooking up the transmitter, I took off and crashed several times before switching to a training model. Flying RC airplanes is something I have wanted to do since college, and maybe, at 63 years old, I can finally begin.

This is a big deal at Bentsen Palm Village, and the proceeds, about $1500/year, go to a no-kill pet shelter. People were gathered everywhere, and volunteers were selling hot dogs, sodas, beer, and cookies and cakes. Pets of all shapes and sizes were dressed in various costumes as were some owners. Bentsen Palm Village is a pet friendly RV resort and most residents have pets. We enjoyed mingling with pet owners and watched them parade around the circle twice, and of course voted for neighbor Tim and Deb’s standard poodles, shown on the left.  The lady in the bottom photo has 3 boxes of outfits and glasses for her dog, and we’ve never seen the dog on the ground!130209_E-8

After a quiet afternoon we joined the neighbors in the palapa for happy hour, Kay played card bingo, and I remained at the motorhome playing with the RC flight simulator.
