On Thursday we got up early and took our motor home to Temecula RV. Larry was feeling a shimmy when he was using the jack brake and Coach Net sent him there to have it diagnosed. We dropped the RV off at 8:00 and then headed to Palm Springs to have our last golf lesson with Jeff Harrison. Jeff was a great teacher and we enjoyed all his help.
Jeff putting out some balls for us to warm up and practice our drives. I need a lot more practice!
After hitting some balls we went out with Jeff to play a game. He taught us golf etiquette, rules and to understand how to play a course. The First Tee is a nice 3 par 9 hole golf course. Larry had some great shots.
OK my turn, let see if I can remember all I was taught.

I hit the ball. Most of them went pretty straight. I actually had one hole in 3 ! Thanks heaven we weren't keeping score.
After golf we had lunch at the Elephant Bar and then I had my hair cut at Penney's while Larry picked up his medicine from the CVS. We had to hurry back to Temecula to get to the RV dealer before they closed at 5. Unfortunately they found that the U joint needed to be replaced and the part they needed they couldn't get till Friday. We couldn't stay in the RV since it was in a stall with its rear jacked up. We feed the cat and gathered some things we needed and headed to Wilderness Lake to stay the night in this cabin. ($47)
It sure wasn't like our motor home.
The old U joint. It wasn't long before we would have been broken down and have had to been towed in. This is the second time we have had this replaced. Luckily our warranty covered it.
Saturday afternoon we went to Riverside to Mike Thompson RV. We had been discussing about getting a new RV, but we only went to look and get a feel if was sensible for us to even think about it. We knew Tiffin was the best RV on the market today. Herb was our salesman and he showed us this RV and it had all we wanted and was "cheaper" then we expected. He was not a pushy salesman but before the evening was over we were the proud owner of this 2011 Phaeton! It has a bath and half, four slides, three TVs inside and one outside, washer and drier, a regular home refrigerator, sleeper sofa, 2 Euro chairs, a built in desk by the table with a draws for the computer and printer. We take possession of it next Monday so many pictures will be posted of it next week.
On Sunday we went back to Mountain Shadow RV park for their church service. The pastor left us half way through his sermon last week so we wanted to hear the rest of it. It was on Revelation and the letters to the seven churches and how each one prophesied the history of the church until today.

After church we went to lunch at Paul and Karla's. What a delicious meal she made and we had a lovely visit. They are an amazing couple and make us always feel so welcome. They are Dutch and were raised in Dutch Indonesia. We learned they had been in a Japanese concentration camp during WW II. It was a fascinating story and one I never knew anything about. Thanks to Paul I have all the music for the dances we learned at the line dance rally last week.
