OUR LITTLE DESERT PAINTER IS AT IT AGAIN
At 7 o’clock tonight it was still warm enough to have our rig’s door open & that is unusual for this area at this time of year….but we’ll take it for sure:))
Congrats to Renee way up there in British Columbia for making it all the way through my 655 picture BISBEE ARIZONA PHOTO ALBUM last night. You sure do have a lot of patience & I am happy you enjoyed the photos:)) I should add here that I purposely randomized all the pictures to follow no set patterns or themes. Thought that might make it a little more interesting. But boy oh boy did that ever chew up a bunch of Verizon bandwidth on us. Two thirds of a Gigglebyte. Guess I won’t be doing that again anytime soon:((
Some may remember those bizarre looking vehicles around Bisbee called, ‘Bisbee Cars.’ Well, figured I had better get with the program & get rolling on my own Bisbee Car:))
There are rumblings in the wind we may be off on another Jeep tour Wednesday with our 2 Cochise County Jeeping Pals, Jeanie & Ray & Rosanna & her Mother, Carol. Have I mentioned Carol is 80+ but wouldn’t miss getting bounced around in the front seat of Rosanna’s little red Jeep for anything. What a sport she is:)) No idea where we’ll be going but I’m sure it will be somewhere kinda rough & somewhere very scenic:))
We have a small Kit Fox coming in for water & Kelly has seen him twice. We keep half a dozen water dishes out for the birds & the little Fox has been squeaking through the fence & coming in for water. Hope to catch him with my 300mm lens.
KELLY RELAXES WITH HER BOOK TODAY
Today we welcome a couple new blog Followers. Ross from MAGIC BUS has climbed aboard as well as Terri Lee. Appreciate your interest folks:))
TOY TIME AT OUR HOUSE >>>>
I have blogged before about what I think about this business of wheeling & dealing with people so I won’t get into all that again except to say it is not my nature to haggle & argue with someone over the price of anything. Hate it!! However, we have a member of the family here who does quite well at that sort of thing. Kelly noticed Best Buy had a sale on something called a Bose Sounddock Portable Digital Music System last week. We had been wanting a small portable something for a long time to replace our ailing old boom box. This Bose player is designed to work with our IPod Nano & how great was that because I would now have my complete music library on a portable external speaker system.
NO, IT’S NOT A TELEVISION….IT’S A SOUND SYSTEM, & ‘WOW’ WHAT GREAT SOUND AT THAT:))))))
Talked it over & decided to go have a look at it last Sunday in Sierra Vista. Kelly phoned Sunday morning to confirm the sale was still on & the clerk said, ‘nope, the sale ended Saturday. What!!!! Undaunted, Kelly phoned back & got another clerk who told her the same thing & wouldn’t budge on the price but offered to talk to the manager. Came back on the phone 30 seconds later & said the manager said, no!! We figure he just put the phone down & never went anywhere to ask anyone anything. Kelly’s third call went right to the store manager himself & within 20 seconds his words to her were, “Yes, I will give you the sale price, come on over & pick it up.” In fact when we got there he gave us a price even better than the sale price so it was a done deal & now you know what we were doing banging around in the Best Buy store in Sierra Vista Sunday:))
From my IPod today I chose 53 songs from my 70’s Playlist & we were soon relaxing outside listening to the likes of the Eagles, America, Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, the Bee Gee’s, JJ Cale along with Emmerson Lake & Palmer plus many, many, others. Thanks to Kelly’s perseverance & determination we now finally have a quality portable outside sound system.
ALWAYS LOTS OF INTERESTING LOOKING CHARACTERS AROUND & THAT IS JUST ONE OF THE MANY THINGS I LOVE ABOUT THE GREAT AMERICAN SOUTHWEST:))
GROANER’S CORNER:(( I just got off the phone with a friend in Minnesota. She said that since early this morning the snow has been nearly waist high and is still falling. The temperature is dropping below zero and the north wind is increasing. Her husband has done nothing but look through the kitchen window. She says that if it gets much worse, she may have to let him in!!
