HOPING FOR A SUNNY SATURDAY

DSC_0006-002

My anticipated sunny day never happened.  Overnight clouds moved back in and that was that.  Instead of a Jeep ride with Pheebs this morning I did laundry.  Exciting eh.  I’m hoping Saturday warms up and holds more promise………………

GROANER’S CORNER:(( Two golden-agers were discussing their husbands over tea. "I do wish that my Elmer would stop biting his nails. He makes me terribly nervous."  My Billy used to do the same things," the older woman replied, "but I broke him of that pesky habit."  "How?"  "I hid his teeth!"

What did the bra say to the hat? "You go on ahead, while I give these two a lift."

A new girl called Carly came to Jimmy's school.Jimmy really fancied her, but was already going out with Lorraine. Some time later he heard that Lorraine's family were emigrating.  On her leaving day he went to see her off. On his way home, he was singing to himself: Note"I can see Carly now Lorraine has gone.''Note

CLOUDY AND COOL SO IT WAS KIND OF A VEHICLE CLEAN-UP DAY

DSC_2627

Took advantage of this mornings cloudy skies to clean all the glass in the Motorhome including the big double windshield.  Washed all the tire rims and back cap.  Cleaned the Jeeps interior as well.  It was overdue.  Our mornings have been cold and today I traded in my big 22-10 ton 40 gallon cowboy hat for my Canadian winter toque.  T-shirt, flannel shirt, and a lined flannel shirt kept me pretty toasty for the first few early hours.  We stuck pretty close to our heater today.  Neither one of us likes being cold anymore.

DSC_2629

Other than the vehicle clean-ups earlier today there wasn’t much of anything going on so not a lot to write about tonight.   Never took any photos so had to dig up a few file pics from earlier this year.  With clearing skies late this afternoon I am looking forward to a sunny Friday with hopefully some warmth in the air.  Maybe Pheebs and I can get out and rustle us up some new photos somewhere.   Loaded a few things into the Motorhome this afternoon……………

TAKING CARE OF SOME BUSINESS IN WICKENBURG THIS MORNING:))

DSC_0020

ALWAYS LOTS OF WEIRD AND MYSTERIOUSLY SHAPED THINGS OUT IN THE DESERT

Well folks I have been sitting on my blabbering fingers as tightly as can be as of late and I can tell you for me that is no easy task.  Last March when we were in the final stages of selling our house with papers signed and a down payment deposit in place I excitedly got ahead of myself saying that our house was so sold and for all intents and purposes it was but the very next day I had to embarrassingly come back and retract that statement when our deal fell apart at the last possible moment.  We are at that same stage again right now with a new buyer but i am certainly not going to say this time that our house is sold.

DSC_0028

SHORT ON PHOTOS FOR TONIGHT’S POST I FOUND A FEW PICS LEFT OVER FROM LAST SUNDAY MORNINGS JEEP DRIVE WITH THESE TWO SHOWING HOW ‘OFF ROADERS’ OFTEN USE DRY SANDY RIVER BEDS TO RUN THEIR VEHICLES

DSC_0029

We had a final inspection Tuesday for termites and no evidence of termites were found so that cleared the way for final negotiations to proceed.  This morning at 10 a.m. we met our new prospective buyer at a Wickenburg Title Company to sign papers and get the house sale ball rolling.  Everything is in the hands of the Title Company now as we wait for the good folks there to do their side of the transaction and get all the i’s dotted and T’s crossed.  They will call us when they are ready for us to come in and go ahead with the next step.  So just to say again, our house is not sold but is in the process of being sold.  Knowing how fast things fell apart last March I am not counting our chickens before they are hatched this time.

DSC_0001

From the Title Company Kelly and I slipped up the street to Dennys for a ‘feeling good’ breakfast and cautiously talked with optimism about our future plans and travels for the rest of this winter.   Our breakfast was excellent by the way and we had more food than we could eat, well that I could eat anyway.  I’m not a big eater anymore.  I had the ‘Grand Slam Slugger’ and brought my 2 big pancakes home with me for later.  I can still remember back in the late 90’s my very first Denny’s visit.  It was in Sarasota Florida while visiting Aunt Jean that she took me out to Denny’s on Bee Ridge Road for breakfast one morning.  I’ve liked Dennys ever since:))

IMG_2396

AFTER WE ARRIVED HOME I REALIZED WE DIDN’T HAVE ANY MAPLE SYRUP SO I LATER HAD TO DRIZZLE A FEW COPIOUS AMOUNTS OF FRENCH VANILLA ICE CREAM ON MY PANCAKES TO EAT THEM:))

From Dennys we popped into the Goodwill Store near Safeway then into Safeway for a few groceries.  From there it was back downtown to the Title Company to sign a few more papers.  That completed our business in Wickenburg for the day and we headed home where a very happy little dog was anxiously waiting with wagging tail at the door for us.

DSC_0002

I am going to reserve all my thoughts on our pending house sale until such time we close this chapter of our lives and move on.  I will have lots to say at that time of course and maybe even clear up a few readers questions that have come in about ‘why not this’ and ‘what about that’ etc.  I do intend from this point on now to keep readers informed on how things are going and what is happening.

DSC_0017

<<< IT’S A HORSE OF COURSE

I can tell you one thing right up front though and that is if it wasn’t for Kelly handling all the required paperwork and making all the necessary phone calls involved I’ve no doubt I would be very hard pressed on how to figure out all this stuff by myself.  For sure I would have had to get a Realtor to handle everything for me but Kelly just steps right into that Realtor breech and efficiently handles everything.  The thought did occur to me today while at the Title Company that Kelly probably missed her calling and would have made an exceptionally successful Real Estate person.  She has all the smarts, the charm and the patience.  She never gets rattled, rude or overbearing.  I hear her on the telephone all the time dealing with the likes of hard nosed companies like Verizon, Bell Telephone, Shaw Satellite etc etc and she never gets snarly or upset with anyone on the other end of the line.  She treats people with utmost respect and she knows how to rationally figure things out.  Sticking with a problem until it is resolved is a particular strength of hers.  Sticking with me all these years is another one of those particular strengths as well.  I am certainly married to the most amazing person I have ever met.  She’s got all the smarts and I got my handy shovel.  In fact I took my handy shovel out into the back yard this morning and within 2 minutes located the lid to our septic tank.  So there ya go, I’m darn good at some stuff too.

DSC_0033

SURE AM GLAD I MADE THE DECISION TO PUT HEAVIER DUTY TIRES ON THE JEEP THIS YEAR

And why did I use my shovel to locate the septic tank lid??  We have a septic tank inspection and pumping coming up shortly which is a standard requirement of a home owner selling their home and by locating the lid ourselves we saved a $75 lid location fee by the septic tank company.

A BLACK COW WEARING IT’S BEST SUNDAY ‘GO TO MEETING’ WHITE CAP AND BIB:))

GROANER’S CORNER:((   A middle aged woman has a heart attack and is taken to the hospital. While on the operating table she has a near death experience. During that experience she sees God and asks if this is it. God says no and explains that she has another 30-40 years to live.  Upon her recovery she decides to just stay in the hospital and have a face lift, liposuction, breast augmentation, tummy tuck, etc.. She even has someone come in and change her hair color. She figures since she's got another 30 or 40 years she might as well make the most of it. She walks out of the hospital after the last operation and is killed by an ambulance speeding up to the hospital.  She arrives in front of God and asks, "I thought you said I had another 30-40 years?" God replies, "Sorry...I didn't recognize you."

A couple of Newfies in a pickup truck drove into a lumberyard. One of the men walked in the office and said, "We need some four-by-twos."
The clerk said, "You mean two-by-fours, don't you?" The man said, "I'll go check," and went back to the truck. He returned a minute later and said, "Yeah, I meant two-by-fours." "All right. How long do you need them?" The customer paused for a minute and said, "I'd better go check." After a while, the customer returned to the office and said, "A long time. We're gonna build a house."

ARIZONA’S FIRST MEMORIAL STATE PARK OPENED TODAY DEDICATED TO 19 YOUNG FIRE FIGHTERS WHO LOST THEIR LIVES IN YARNELL BACK IN 2013

DSC_0003_thumb

HEADING UP THE YARNELL HILL THIS MORNING BUT WHY ARE THESE ORANGE CONES SEPARATING THE TWO ONE-WAY LANES?? (THAT LEFT LANE WAS BEING USED AS A DOWNHILL LANE TODAY)

During winter months clear desert nights mean cold desert nights but a clear starry sky also means a clear sunny morning and it’s those sunny mornings which I so much look forward to.  However, sunny days don’t necessarily guarantee warm days and today was a good example of that.  We had an icy cold wind blowing from the North so that meant another Jeep ride instead of a walk.

DSC_0009_thumb1

Being Tuesday I figured Yarnell’s Bakery would be open so Pheebs and headed off to get us some donuts to bring home.  At the foot of the Yarnell Hill I saw a lot of orange cones blocking off the southbound lanes coming down the mountain and a police cruiser parked.  It was only then I remembered that today was the day a ceremony would be held to officially dedicate the new Granite Mountain Hotshots Memorial State Park as a tribute to the 19 firefighters killed during a 2013 wildfire in Yarnell Arizona.  The 3-mile trail and memorial will serve as a lasting tribute to the fallen firefighters' heroism. Granite Mountain Hotshots Memorial State Park  This is Arizona's first Memorial State Park.

DSC_0001_thumb

NOTICED ALL THESE ORANGE TRAFFIC CONES LAID OUT ON HIGHWAY 89 HEADING TOWARDS THE YARNELL HILL

DSC_0002_thumb

THESE CONES WERE SPACED OUT ABOUT 20 FEET APART FROM THE BOTTOM OF THE MOUNTAIN RIGHT UP TO THE TOP AND I FIGURED THE ROAD CREW THAT PLACED THEM ALL MUST HAVE STARTED VERY VERY EARLY IN TUESDAY MORNINGS PRE-DAWN HOURS

DSC_0006_thumb3

SOUTHBOUND DOWNHILL LANES WERE CLOSED HERE

DSC_0007_thumb3

NOT SURE WHAT THESE WORK TRUCKS WERE ALL ABOUT….MAYBE SIGN TRUCKS

DSC_0008_thumb1

If one doesn’t take highway 89 down the Yarnell Hill there is only one other way to get down and of course it is the old Stage Coach Road running between Yarnell and Stanton.  Well that’s always perfectly fine with me so for the about the 4th time already this year Pheebs and were again slowly bouncing ourselves along the scenic southbound road down through the southern edge of the Weaver Mountains.

DSC_0001_thumb2

I KNOW I HAVE POSTED A NUMBER OF PHOTOS FROM THIS SAME LOCATION BUT I AM ALWAYS INTRIGUED BY THESE COTTONWOOD TREES EVERY TIME I COME THIS WAY

Stopped at our usual old cow pens enclosure along the way where we usually see a herd of cows browsing around the water hole.  No cows this morning, well no live ones that is.  While standing beside the Jeep I happened to look across the road and saw what appeared to be at first glance a large brown boulder.  Only problem was there were no other boulders around the same color.  Hmmmmm, well that warrants a closer look see.  Walked across the rough road and up a slight knoll through some prickly pear cactus and mesquite.  Didn’t take me long to see in fact that the odd looking big brown boulder was in fact a full grown dead cow.  No signs of trauma to the body and I figure it had probably been dead less than 24 hours.  Unlike Ontario with adjoining farms every few miles cattle range free out here for miles and miles and finding the rancher who this cow belonged to was pretty well impossible.  Nothing we could do about it so we just hopped back in the Jeep and moseyed ourselves along on down the mountainside.

NOPE, IT WASN’T A BIG BROWN BOULDER

Didn’t see any activity in or around Stanton anywhere so we just kind of tippy toed our way on by heading back to Congress.  Slipped off on a couple dusty side roads along the way and had us a look around.DSC_0018_thumb2

THE SOUTHBOUND SINGLE LANE OF HIGHWAY 89 CAN BE SEEN DESCENDING ACROSS THE FACE OF THE MOUNTAIN

Approaching highway 89 I happened to look off to my right at the Weaver Mountains and noticed high up what appeared to be a convoy of vehicles moving slowly down the southbound lane.  Knowing this lane was closed to the public today I right away figured it must be the busloads of dignitaries and specially invited people like members of the fallen firefighters families arriving for todays dedication ceremony.  Today's Dedication Ceremony  It was 10 a.m. and my figuring was right.  I stopped and took a series of of long range photos showing where the 7 buses stopped at the new trail head on highway 89.DSC_0006_thumb2

THESE PHOTOS WERE TAKEN WITH A 300mm LENS THEN GREATLY CROPPED TO BRING THE IMAGES CLOSER….WHAT I ORIGINALLY SAW WITH MY NAKED EYE WERE ONLY WHITE SPECS MOVING ON THE SIDE OF THE MOUNTAIN

MORE BUSES ROLL UP AND I THINK THERE MAY HAVE BEEN 7 OF THEM

THE TRAIL BEGINS WHERE THE BUSES ARE THEN CLIMBS THROUGH A SERIES OF SWITCHBACKS UP THE MOUNTAIN TO THE TOP LEFT OF THE PHOTO THEN SWINGS THROUGH A LOW PASS SWINGING AROUND THAT KNOBBY KNOLL AND i THINK HEADS RIGHT….IF YOU CLICK ON THE PHOTO AND LOOK VERY CAREFULLY YOU MAY BE ABLE TO SEE PARTS OF THE TRAIL….THE TRAIL IS DESCRIBED AS STRENOUS AND YOU CAN EASILY SEE WHY

DSC_0015_thumb2

I BASE MY TRAIL DIRECTION ON WHAT I COULD SEE WITH MY 8X50 BINOCULARS AND WHAT I SAW WAS PARTS OF THE TRAIL CUTTING ACROSS THE ROCKFACE AND ON CLOSER OBSERVATION I COULD SEE GROUPS OF PEOPLE SCATTERED ALONG THE TRAIL HEADING UP

DSC_0014_thumb3

THERE WAS A ‘FLY-OVER’ BY FIREFIGHTING PLANES BUT I DIDN’T SEE THAT OVER TOP THE MOUNTAIN RANGE

It was one month ago today we arrived in Sarasota Florida on our way to Arizona.  Already our visit with Aunt Jean seems so very long ago.  Talked to Jean a couple night’s ago and she was going to try and get out with friends for a round of golf today.  Even if it’s only a few holes she feels it will be beneficial both physically and mentally.  Along with her daily morning walks it has been her love of golf over these many years that has kept her so actively in good shape.

GROANER’S CORNER:(( The Teacher had asked the class to write an essay about an unusual event that happened during the past week.
Little Johnny got up to read his. It began, "My daddy fell in our well last week." "Good Lord!" the teacher exclaimed. "Is he OK?" "He must be," said Little Johnny. "He stopped calling for help yesterday."

A young boy enters a barber shop and the barber whispers to his customer, "This is the dumbest kid in the world. Watch while I prove it to you." The barber puts a dollar bill in one hand and two quarters in the other, then calls the boy over and asks, "Which do you want, son?"
The boy takes the quarters and leaves. "What did I tell you?" said the barber. "That kid never learns!"  Later, when the customer leaves, he sees the same young boy coming out of the ice cream store. "Hey, son! May I ask you a question? Why did you take the quarters instead of the dollar bill?  The boy licked his cone and replied, "Because the day I take the dollar, the game is over!"

MOUNTAINS IN THE MIST

WICKENBURG’S VULTURE PEAK

Sunday’s cold afternoon rain finally quit Sunday evening with sky’s clearing overnight leaving us with temperatures hovering somewhere just above the freezing mark.  Sure glad to see Monday mornings big orange sunset but hopes for warm temperatures were soon dashed when heavy clouds moved back into the area.DSC_0008

MORNING SUNRISE

DSC_0002

I’ve trimmed up all the trees on the property and raked up the grounds so there’s not a lot for me to do around here these days.  No point in me planting more cactus or starting any more projects so rather than sitting around watching TV or reading Pheebs and I again took the Jeep and headed off down the road.  Original idea was to head out into the desert behind our place to Indian Rock but walking to the Jeep I could see my breath.  Knowing the day was not going to get much warmer going for a walk held little interest for me.  I dislike cold just as much as I dislike hot!!DSC_0006

THIS TALL PEAK IN THE DATE CREEK MOUNTAINS BEHIND OUR HOUSE CAN BE SEEN FROM McDONALDS IN WICKENBURG

Talked it over with Pheebs and she agreed it would be warmer for us just to go for a ride in the Jeep and enjoy the scenery so that’s what we did.  At the end of Ghost Town Road we turned right and headed west on highway 71.  Not really sure where we were going so we just kept on going.

DSC_0010

HEADING WEST ON HIGHWAY 71 WITH THE WEAVER MOUNTAINS SLIPPING AWAY BEHIND US IN MY SIDEVIEW MIRROR

Noticed a lot of cloud banks sitting on the surrounding mountain tops with with long fingers of ground fog hanging low across the desert floor.  Far to the south about 15 miles away Vulture Peak was entirely fog shrouded but also noticed the bank of clouds was on the move.  Made a bunch of stops along highway 71 taking photos of the changing cloudscape on the distant horizon and soon saw Vulture Peak beginning to emerge from the mists.

VULTURE PEAK APPEARED AS A TRUE SKY ISLAND THIS MORNING

We followed highway 71 to highway 60 just east of Aguila and turned left heading back towards Wickenburg.  Mountain mists had lifted and our minds were on food now.  Had ourselves quite a time trying to decide between McDonalds, Subway or Burger King.  I was leaning towards a big Whopper but Pheebs finally talked me into a tuna sub at Subway so with that destination in mind we made our way into and down through the heart of Wickenburg to the south end of town where Subway was right next door to McDonalds.  Pheebs was ecstatic when I came walking out of Subway with a 6” Tuna Sub in hand.  Didn’t take us long to have our usual big mess going on with lettuce and tomatoes on my lap, gooey honey mustard sauce on the steering wheel, green pepper chunks between the seats and scraps of onions on the floor.    And of course a little bit of everything dribbled down the front of my shirt as well but I do think most of the Tuna ended up in our tummies somehow.

From Subway we backed out and drove a couple hundred feet to McDonalds drive-thru across the road.  One small coffee to go and away we went.  Could have taken our usual long dusty desert back road route to Congress but opted for taking highway 93 and set a course for home.  Swung ourselves around Wickenburg’s 3 round-a-bouts and half an hour later we rolled into our Ghost Town Road driveway.  Don’t think it was even 11 o’clock yet.

GROANER’S CORNER:(( A man is dining in a fancy restaurant, and there is a gorgeous redhead sitting at the next table. He had been checking her out since he sat down, but lacked the nerve to talk with her.  Suddenly she sneezes and her glass eye comes flying out of its socket towards the man. He reflexively reaches out, grabs it out of the air, and hands it back. "Oh my, I am so sorry," the woman says as she pops her eye back in place. "Let me buy you dessert to make it up to you."  They enjoy a wonderful dessert together, and afterwards, the woman invites him to the theater followed by drinks. After paying for everything, she asks him if he would like to come to her place for a nightcap...and stay for breakfast the next morning.  The next morning, she cooks a gourmet meal with all the trimmings. The guy is amazed! Everything has been incredible!
"You know," he said, "you are the perfect woman. Are you this nice to every guy you meet?"  "No," she replies.….. "You just happened to catch my eye.

A young lad's father picked him up from school to take him to a dental appointment.  Knowing the parts for the school play were supposed to be posted today, he asked his son if he got a part.  The boy enthusiastically announced that he'd gotten a part. "I play a man who's been married for twenty years."  "That's great, son. Keep up the good work and before you know it they'll be giving you a speaking part."
