Needed a few groceries so figured we would head into town this morning but then Kelly dropped.....the 'S' word. She decided if we were in town anyway she could hit a few stores. Well, that was it for me. After my Sierra Vista shopping day this past week I figured I was good until 2015 so had no interest in getting dragged through more stores. Kelly headed off for Bisbee & I stretched out in a lounge chair with my 'Sons Of The Pioneers' CD shakin up the chickens.
Turned out to be a very busy morning on the computer anyway so was glad I had stayed behind. I had emails to respond to, photos to sort, emails to organize, & fellow bloggers to read. I responded, sorted, & organized but didn't get any blogs read so I may keep this post short to-night & do some catch up.
Noticed we have some new followers so want to welcome Belle Starr, Jeanie, & Yarntangler. Do you suppose Yarntangler might have something to do with quilting. Seems like every third or fourth RV/Blogger we meet is a quilter person. Geeeezzzz, some of the guys are even married to quilters:)) Jeanie's husband has just entered the blogging world as well so you might want to have a look at ROJOS RAMBLINGS. Tell him The Bayfield Bunch sent ya:)) And check out Gerri & Art's blog at THE 2 BALLS. Sounds like amongst a bunch of other things, Gerri is a very experienced reptile handler!!
On our Middlemarch Road drive a few days ago we came upon something we had not expected to see in this area. On the east side of the Dragoon mountains about half way to Pearce we spotted a Saguaro Cactus standing tall on a hillside. First one we've ever seen this far southeast of Tucson.
RARE TO THIS AREA……A SAGUARO CACTUS NEAR PEARCE, ARIZONA
We had an email from Cindy & Dave this morning. They are set up at Belle's place in their 5th wheel & have run into a few work related problems. There is a problem with the electric running to the boxes at all 6 RV sites so Dave is having problems running his power tools. At the time Cindy sent the email Dave was working on fixing a sink for Belle. Kelly & I are so grateful to Cindy & Dave for coming to Belle's aid. As many of you blog readers know I am not mechanically inclined whatsoever & to have a caring couple arrive carrying their own tools with the ability to use them is nothing short of a miracle. This Wisconsin couple & their dog Shadow arrived at a perfect time. Kelly & I were able to get the ball rolling but it is people like Cindy & Dave who can keep it rolling. I am hoping to get over to Belle's to-morrow for a couple hours so we'll see how things are going & how that Belle gal is doing. She is having a few problems getting onto her blogsite so maybe we can work on that for a bit too. I would like to take a few more pics for Belle's blog as well. If anyone RVing in the area knows how to set up a full blown website that would be much appreciated. Belle had a nice website but the fellow who did it put everything in his name including passwords, etc. When he finally 'got lost'......so did Belle's website!!
Ok, that's about enough out of me for another day!!
GROANER'S CORNER:(( During my brother's wedding, my mother managed to keep from crying---until she glanced at my grandparents. My grandmother had reached over to my grandfather's wheelchair and gently touched his hand. That was all it took to start my mother's tears flowing.
After the wedding, Mom went over to my grandmother and told her how that tender gesture triggered her outburst.
"Well, I'm sorry to ruin your moment," Grandmother replied, "but I was just checking his pulse."
