Another mighty fine Arizona morning. Not a whole lot to write about to-day because we just spent a quiet day around the rig cleaning, etc. Ray & I cleaned up the corral & pens this morning & that was about it. Lots of little horsey & donkey do-do's. Actually this is pretty good stuff to work with compared to cow manure. Not smooshy or smelly. Rakes & shovels up easy & doesn't even stick to yer boots.
Jeanie & Ray packed the final things in their truck & fifth wheel this afternoon & by mid afternoon they were heading out the driveway on their long overdo holiday. We are now officially on our own here at the ranch until next month sometime. We are very fortunate that our duties here are light & mainly involve taking care of the animals. That's right up our alley & it's the perfect setting for us. We would never make good camp hosts or anything like that because of all the people involvement, but looking after some critters & acting as security on a quiet ranch in beautiful Cochise County in southeastern Arizona is just about as good as it gets for The Bayfield Bunch:)) We are happy campers.
JEANIE & RAY DOING A FINAL BRAKES, LIGHTS, & TURN SIGNAL CHECK
Sometime next week we are going to go back to Bisbee & take the Queen Mine Tour. I hadn't mentioned a lot about Bisbee's mining history in yesterday's blog so when we do the mine tour I will focus more on Bisbee's history of mining. Afterall, if it wasn't for the massive mining operations there over the last century & a half, Bisbee just wouldn't have been Bisbee.A BIG WAVE GOOD-BYE
It was a year ago on Feb 13th that we took our third drive on the 25 mile Ajo loop in Organ Pipe National Monument. We were boondocking just south of Why Arizona at the time. I remember it as a beautiful day because some of the Mexican poppies were blooming & it was nice to see the patches of yellow in the mountains. You can see the photo album for that day here..........
Well, better hit the hay. A cowpokes day starts pretty early in these here parts. What with 9 chickens, 5 dogs, 2 cats, 2 horses, & 3 donkeys to look after it sounds like were gonna be on the go from sun up to sundown. Yessir pardner.........................we're havin us one real good fine time here:)) Ye-hawwwww!!
