BETWEEN SNOOZING & READING TO-DAY I WAS ABLE TO FIT IN SOME DOZING

RATTLESNAKE CRAFTS IS LOCATED OVER THERE IN THE GLEESON MOUNTAINS

It was 20 days ago that we left Ontario & to-day we had the quietest day since leaving home.  Kelly headed off to the exercise class but I decided to stay home.  My back is feeling normal again & I want to keep it that way.  Besides, I was able to get a bit of house cleaning done.  Did the dishes, vacuumed the floors, & made my bed real darn good.  I'm a handy little cuss to have around sometimes but just don't ask me to do any of that silly cooking stuff!!

Want to clear something up about last night's blog.  There are no rattlesnakes at Rattlesnake Crafts.  John & Sandy do catch the rattlesnakes out in the desert but are not in the habit of bringing them home alive.  Their crafts are made from rattlesnake skins, rattles, etc.  John told Kelly there is no point in keeping live snakes around because they will just escape anyway.

DSC_0070Thanks for the compliments on last night's photo with myself in the blue ball.  If you look at the photo  you can see that blue ball in the bottom row about half way down.

Our weather changed a bit to-day with gusting winds coming in from the southwest & bringing the temps down to a more comfortable level.  It was a nice day for snoozing & reading with a bit of dozing in between the two.  And we didn't have to put the A/C on either which was a bonus.  Whenever you have to run the furnace you know it is too cold & whenever the A/C has to be turned on it's obviously too hot.  Somewhere between those two temperature extremes resides a little place called temperature heaven.

We don't normally associate snow with Arizona but on February 10th of this year while at the ranch we did get snowed on:((  Saw snow on the Swiss Helm mountains to the east two days before so we should have known we were getting close to a dump.  By noon most of the snow had melted but I did manage to grab a few photos before it left.  Check out our BLOG & Picasa Web Album  WE GOT SNOWED ON for that day!!

WORKING WITH THE NEW COLEMAN

I do intend to try out the Yoga class in the morning but I'm sure not going in there with the attitude I did at the exercise class this past Monday morning figuring, 'hey' there isn't anything those women can do that I can't do.  Well, there was & my 21 year old attitude didn't match up with my 65 year old body & I paid the price.  Lesson learned!!

KELLY AT THE COMPUTER TALKING TO HER MOM & DAD ON SKYPE THIS AFTERNOON

GROANER'S CORNER:((  A man walked into a bar and sat down beside a women.  Suddenly her glass eye popped out and he caught it. She thanked him and asked him if he would join her for breakfast the next day. He agreed and got her address. The next day he went to her house and had a lovely breakfast. He asked, "Do you treat all men like this?" She smiled and said, "Just the ones who catch my eye."

I think my Live Writer problem last night may have been caused by a poor Verizon connection.  Same problem to-night so re-connected & I was OK.  Thanks to Rick for his advice comment to-day which I followed:))

  3. A nice, quiet day reading is a great way to spend time once in a while - gives that camera a chance to cool down too!
