Barb and Sal got a new puppy a few weeks ago. She stays here at the campground, so we can take her for a walk when we like. She's a real sweet girl, and her name is Bella. The name means "beautiful" in Spanish.

Last year, Sherman's water pump began leaking. Then mysteriously, it stopped. So I left it well enough alone. The manufacturer had sent a part they thought would fix the leak, so I had that with me. But recently it has begun leaking again so I figured I better take it apart. And, we're going to Vegas in a few days, so worse case scenario is I can buy a new pump there and bring it back with me if I need to.
So I took it all apart and cleaned everything. The part they sent me was not the part I needed, but I think I got the leak fixed anyhow. I used some gasket sealer when I put it back together, but it has to cure for 24 hours so I won't know until today if it is okay.
In preparation for yesterday's fiesta, we had to get Don Quixote ready for the party. Sal bought him a new saddle so he could give the kids some rides. Some of the ladies here at the campground decided Don needed a bath...
Donkey having a bath. It was too funny.
He is such a gentle donkey and we think he enjoyed being brushed and bathed!
Another new addition to the campground is the swimming pool! The water is still a little chilly for my liking, but Sal has it running through some black solar hose that is slowly warming it up.
Now for some fiesta photos! What a great party we had. Barb and Sal invited all of their local friends as well, and we had birria and carnitas and tequila and music and dancing. People started arriving around 2:30pm and there were probably about 100 people there at one point.
