WE MAY BE CAMPED HERE FOR A FEW DAYS IN THE SUNNY FLATS CAMPGROUND AT THE END OF THIS MONTH....NEAR PORTAL, AZ.
In SANDRA'S BLOG yesterday she mentioned the following...."Did you know that most people in the U.S. are born on October 5th? You would expect birthdays to be evenly distributed among the 365 days on a calendar. AnyBirthday.com has a database of the birthdays of more than 135 million Americas and claim that more people were born on October 5 than on any other day of the year. The reason seems to be that October 5th is approximately 9 months from New Year's Eve. Another little bit of trivia."
NEAR PORTAL ARIZONA AT CAVE CREEK....MARCH 2009
Well, I was born in October as well so the only thing I can say about that is....."Happy New Year" I also noticed to-day in Janna's TIN TEE PEE blog that Mike's celebrating a birthday as well. I offered Kelly $5 to write something nice about me like Janna did for Mike but Kelly told me to keep the $5 & go climb a tree..............:))
NICE OLD CAR PARKED OUTSIDE THE PORTAL GENERAL STORE
Well, thanks to JERRY yesterday I did find out that in fact I do have a Google Adsense ad on our website. It has been hiding at the very bottom of our blog all this time & I had totally forgotten about it since thinking it had vanished a long time ago. Must have got shuffled to the bottom of the deck at some point when I was making changes to the sidebar. I have now moved it from it's low visibility point at the bottom to a high visibility spot just under the right side of our main header picture. Oh geezzzzz, what am I gonna do with all this ad money rolling in now!! Hope I can make enough to pay Jerry a finder's fee:)) Guess this also tells me I should do a little house cleaning on our website from time to time to make sure I know where things are!!
ATOP THE CHIRICAHUA MOUNTAINS ABOUT TO DESCEND INTO PORTAL
Noticed Jerry & Suzy from, OUR LIFE ON WHEELS are staying a few days at WEST RUSTY'S RV RANCH near Rodeo New Mexico right now. We're hoping to be in that very area in about another 3 weeks. We don't have Passport America but maybe Rusty will cut us deal anyway if & when we get there:)) Jerry mentioned they were doing a daytrip to Portal Arizona which reminded me of our trip over the Chiricahua mountain last March & down into the totally beautiful Portal area. Our blog for that day is HERE & our photos for the day are in WEB ALBUM including lunch at the little Portal general store.............................:))
THE WINDING ROAD AHEAD
Some of you may remember I blogged awhile back about receiving a book called 'Backyard Guide To The Night Sky' from National Geographic. I have it sitting right here on my desk but haven't read it yet. I am now thinking this will make a great read once we reach the ranch in Arizona. I seem to do the majority of my reading while we are traveling. Sitting quietly in the open desert air just seems to go hand in hand with reading for me so I'll let you know how I like the book hopefully next month while lazing away under the warm Arizona sunshine:))
FOLLOWING THAT WINDING DIRT ROAD THROUGH THE CHIRICAHUA MOUNTAINS
Wondered if any other 'Live Writer' users out there are having any problems with their 'link' section. Our links are connecting OK but I'm getting error messages every time I insert a link.
THIS IS A BEAUTIFUL, BEAUTIFUL, LAND
GROANER'S CORNER:(( I just got lost in a bunch of thought & it was unfamiliar territory.

The only thing better than right now will someday be the memories of right now...AL.
Sounds like your getting very close to hitting the road soon AL... Can't wait to read your adventures... Have Fun!ReplyDelete
Your blogs lately are making us awfully homesick for the desert while we're stuck in Florida!!!! However, if we can't be there, this is not a bad place to be!ReplyDelete
We wish you a very happy birthday tomorrow!
Doug, JoAnn & Fillmore
Birthdays? Who needs em? That just makes us one more year closer to the big roundup. But have a happy time on yours just the same.ReplyDelete
Thankyou for the resizing tip on the blog centering photo bit. My current photo was taken with the cell phone and looks bad when sized up. It is really small in its original form.
I have been messing around with the HTML code trying to center a small photo, but have not proved smart enough to accomplish the deed.
Happy Birthday, Al, for whatever day in October you were born! I haven't had the 'link' problem you mentioned in Live Writer so my guess is it might be some kind of conflict with a setting on your computer - could be a devil to find! Great pics as usual.ReplyDelete
Al, you rat! You always get there first and do it better! We drove in to Portal and the Chiricahuas from the New Mexico side, and the dirt road was closed yeaterday, so we couldn't go everywhere.ReplyDelete
Your picture from Sunny Flat campground is exactly the same as one of ours, except that yours shows a fiver where ours has a big motorhome.
Yes, I had an error message recently while adding a link, but the link added just fine. I really enjoy using Live Writer, except that the photos I touch up in Picasa come in without the touchups and cropping. Tell me how you deal with that!
