STILL A FEW LAWN ORNAMENTS TO PUT AWAY
Our Thursday night snow showers did not materialize but we did get the showers part. Friday has turned out sunny & our front yard is still showing lots of color. Generally, if I am stuck for photos I can just grab a camera & walk outside into our mini jungle here & find something interesting. Tonight's pics are from our front yard today.
SURFACE OF OUR FROG POND IS COVERED WITH DUCKWEED & PINE NEEDLES
I liked Chuck & Rod's common sense approach in the comment section of GYPSY'S Thursday post. They both have a good point & I think they are right in their views about all the new technologies. I hadn't thought of it that way but I can certainly understand companies doing that. It just affirms my own grumblings about 'newer is not always better!!' As I read through other blogs I am seeing what appears to be a consensus of other disgruntled folks as well. Always nice to know I do not stand alone in my opinions:))))))
I noticed Thursday we have a new blog supporter. LUCI & LOREE. I always enjoy reading about the determined courage of folks out there going it alone in the RV world. Welcome aboard Loree & Luci:))
A year ago today we were preparing for our 09 departure to the southwest. I remember hooking up our Santa Fe in a cold rain. By the time we get out of here in another 2 weeks it could be a cold snow!!
WE STILL HAVE COLOR IN THE FLOWERBEDS
Two of our Snow Birding neighbors left this week for the sunny south with one lady heading to Florida & another couple to southern Georgia. Another couple in the Park will soon leave for Texas. I think we are the only people we know from around here who prefer the scenic wonders of the great American Southwest.
And speaking of the Southwest, it has come to our attention that some folks living near the Dragoon Mountains in Arizona's Sulphur Springs Valley not far from the town of Sunsites are looking for some RV folks to look after 5 dogs on their property. They will be taking a 2 week vacation for the first two weeks of March 2011. We would do this but don't plan on being in the area at that time. Electricity & water provided but no sewer hook-up. Use of the house is offered. If anyone is interested, just send us an email at..... firstname.lastname@example.org. We'll get in touch with friends of ours in the area who are friends with the property owners.
MOTORMOUSE STAYS WARM BY THE FIRE THIS MORNING
GROANER'S CORNER:(( While on a road trip, an elderly couple stopped at a roadside restaurant for lunch. After finishing their meal, they left the restaurant, and resumed their trip. When leaving, the elderly woman unknowingly left her glasses on the table, and she didn't miss them until they had been driving for about forty minutes.
By then, to add to the aggravation, they had to travel quite a distance before they could find a place to turn around, in order to return to the restaurant to retrieve her glasses.
All the way back, the elderly husband became the classic grouchy man. He fussed and complained, and scolded his wife relentlessly during the entire return drive.
The more he chided her, the more agitated he became. He just wouldn't let up for a single minute.
To her relief, they finally arrived at the restaurant. As the woman got out of the car, and hurried inside to retrieve her glasses, the old geezer yelled to her, "While you're in there, you might as well get my hat and the credit card too."
Until one has loved an Animal, part of their soul remains un-awakened.
