WE HAVE SOME BIG CRITTERS AROUND HERE
The patter of raindrops on our roof Thursday night alerted us to the passing of a small shower. We have our fingers crossed we will not be having any kind of major rain while we are here. Our rig is parked in dirt & it’s a nasty glue like dirt. When water is added to the dirt it will turn into a massive glue like solution which totally sticks & clings to everything. Especially furry little paws!!
WE HAVE SOME LITTLE CRITTERS AROUND HERE TOO
We are having quite a time with ourselves trying to decide on our future travel plans for the winter. We had originally planned to stay at the ranch in McNeil until the middle of December but those plans changed while we were on our way west last November. We really have it nice here at the Elfrida property where we are now. With all the amenities, including a whole house & large fenced in yard we have become very comfortable. Actually, too comfortable!! We don’t have any neighbors & how perfect is that. And, it’s all free:)) I’m guessing most people would be totally content to stay put in one spot for the whole winter but for us, RVing has always meant much more than that. Keeping on the move, traveling & exploring different regions & doing different things has always been our idea of the RV lifestyle. It’s a tough decision for us this time & I have no idea how we will decide what to do. For sure we will stay put to the end of the month & probably then some, but after that……..who knows.
KELLY LIKES TO SEE THE UPS TRUCK ROLL IN
There is always a lot of media hype about the Mexican border problems down here. It is more of a problem in people’s minds who have never been here or understand life along the border. Yes, there are areas of violence alright but there are areas of violence in any North American city. Just as you wouldn’t drive through or hang out in a city’s crime section, you know enough to stay away from the border towns & areas where the trouble is & the drug runners are.
We have been coming to this area for over 4 years now & aside from one careless mistake we made in the Mexican border town of SONOYTA 3 years ago the Mexican border problem is simply not a big issue for us. And, it is not a big issue for the majority of folks who live here either. You just have to use common sense in regards to what you are doing, where you are going & who you chose to hang around with. Not any different from any large city or town in North America. Anytime we go to the border town of Douglas we do not feel any different there than in going to the lakeside town of Goderich back home. The majority of people we see in & around Douglas are Mexican folks but there are no feelings of threat or unease. What seems to be the norm these days though is how the ratings starved media highlights & sensationalizes the negative aspect of so many things. Don’t get me wrong though, there are major drug problems along the border as well as illegal alien crossings & people have to be careful, just as in many other parts of this country…10-4!!
BUSY LITTLE BIRD HAVING A BATH
Had we done anything remotely exciting today I would have written about it, but we didn’t, so I guess that’s the end of post number 1,015:)) Maybe tomorrow eh.
GROANER’S CORNER:(( A marine biologist developed a race of genetically engineered dolphins that could live forever if they were fed a steady diet of seagulls. One day his supply of the birds ran out, so he had to go out and trap some more. On the way back, he spied two lions asleep on the road. Afraid to wake them, he gingerly stepped over them. Immediately, he was arrested and charged with transporting gulls across sedate lions for immortal porpoises.
