Craft Fair + New Homes + More

Normally we would sing “Rain Rain Go Away”…….but not when you live in the Arizona desert.  Here every drop of rain is precious to relieve the drought conditions.  Monday and Tuesday may not have been ideal for our golfers and outdoor sports but we were happy to have some real rain for a change.  I’m sure the desert plants and animals were happy as well.

The gray sky did NOT keep the shoppers away from the Craft Sale on Tuesday.  The usual booths in the parking lot didn’t appear due to the weather but the ballroom was packed with vendors and eager shoppers. 



Some of our own “Creekers” have booths to sell their hand-made treasures.

Jack Thomason has been busy in the wood shop working on his crafts. 


Bob Hotvet from Minnesota was selling his wood carvings. 


The boys from the woodshop were selling raffle tickets for this beautiful hand crafted drop leaf table.  Go buy some tickets so they can get more tools for the wood shop! 



Of course to make every event successful, there must be volunteers who cook and serve up the food.



Just a casual celebrity photo of some popular shoppers.


And….as always….someone has to be on duty to meet and greet arriving guests and residents.  Rain OR shine.


Oh………what is behind this big pile of dirt over by the storage area??


WOW!!  The hole has been dug for the first house on the new street to run down the other side of the golf course.  I hear that two of these big spec homes will be arriving there soon.  Seeing the big hole sparked my curiosity to see what was going to be available so we stopped up at the sales office Wednesday afternoon for the weekly tour of new homes.  Nancy Paupst from the Sales Office gives a guided tour each Wednesday afternoon at 3:00 so if you want to see samples of the new houses, stop in and join her tour.




Here is a floor plan for the new Carlene 2-bedroom 2-bath home showing 1,319 sq. ft. of space.

We also got the chance to tour through the new 3-piece modular home located at Site 1261.  Very nice!  The resort has some terrific sales offers in place on some of these new models along with reduced rent for the first four years.  Keep an eye on Site 1396 where the park is constructing a sample “Casita”.  A Casita is a room that can be built on an RV or 5th wheel site.  Lots of exciting news and proof that our park is doing well.  The next phase of expansion calls for moving the softball field, building about 16 new pickleball courts, and 200 more home sites. 

Wednesday was a busy day as we had our weekly Computer Club meeting that morning.  Kevin Fahey from the Casa Grande Public Library was our guest speaker for the day.  He told us of a lot of information that is available from the library.  You can read all the details at our club blog at:  This year’s club president, Mike Salter, always has some entertaining as well as informative info for us as well.  Next week he will introduce us to Google Earth. 



P.S.  I was almost late for Computer Club because I had to stop and wait for “traffic” on my street.


Friend and neighbor, Popkorn, was out testing his newest toy that zips up and down our street like a flash!  As I backed out my driveway, his little car could run circles around me.  There he was all the way down the street.  That car has quite a range!


Never a dull moment living here!
