Wickenburg has the most polite kids

We went to Wickenburg Arizona yesterday for Gold Rush Days. It was another great day and the weather was wonderful so the place was packed. There was no parking to be found. We lucked out when we were going down a dead end road to turn around and a car stopped to talk with us. She saw the Missouri license plates from Bob and Wilma's car and was expecting to meet some people from Missouri at Gold Rush Days and wondered if they drove out to her place. We said we were looking for parking and she offered a spot in front of her house which we readily agreed to. A little further walk but it was a space at last, thanks Beth!

By this time we decided to skip the parade and walk through the vendors for awhile. Jo ending up buying a purse but we mostly just gawked. Now to the kids, we ate at the Saddle Club's BBQ event and there were kids of all ages helping out, either serving or busting the tables. We never met kids, and we mean all of them, that were so polite. It was yes sir, yes ma'am, can I help you this that? It was incredible. The food was also really good, BBQ beef, chuckwagon beans and cole slaw.

After lunch we walked through the rest of the tents and saw some stuff we might have been interested in if we had still been living in a sticks and bricks. It was so liberating to be able to say that was really cool but have no inkling to buy it, full-timing just saved us some money yesterday!

Till next time,

Bob and Jo

  1. I still go shopping (looking) and to flea markets, etc and say the same thing, "it's nice, but I don't need it".
