NOPE, IT’S NOT AN OLD COOT…..IT’S AN AMERICAN COOT:))
Really getting tired of these freezing cold nights but then again so is everybody else. We woke up to 19F again this morning with condensation on the inner walls & windows. Just seems to be the weather pattern in the southwest right now. Hard to believe that our Jeep’s thermometer registered 68F Sunday at Parker Canyon Lake. By noon today the thermometer was into the low 60’s & I felt some warmth in the air.
COULD THIS BE A COOT??
I will give my cameras a rest today & simply include more photos from Sunday’s day trip. By the time I tapped out a blog Sunday night & had all the day’s 200+ photos in order it was pushing midnight when I hit the ‘Publish’ button. Today has been a zero energy day right from the time I got up.
Following pics are a random sample of the RV sites at Parker Canyon Lake’s campground for anyone interested. Brand new washrooms & trash receptacles will soon be in operation.
Popped over to the Elfrida Photo Group at 1 this afternoon & was able to help a lady with some Picasa questions & show her on the library’s computer how the ‘Retouch’ tool & a few others work so my day wasn’t a total washout after all.
I’m not big on a lot of unrealistic quotes & sayings I’ve heard over the years but I particularly liked the quote Bob had in a day or two ago at, CHASING GRACE. And, I thought the saying, “It’s not a vacation…..it’s a Wheel Life” was a clever saying on, WHEEL LIFE WITH THE BRIGHT'S. I had never heard that before. But then again as you all know….I live a sheltered life!!
On Sunday’s day trip we came across a building that looked like an old school. We like exploring around old buildings so we stopped to have us a look see. I do think it was a school at one time because of the old bell but it is now used as a Church. We have seen several of these ‘Cowboy Church’s’ in our travels. I think there is one in Tombstone too.
A CHILD’S HOMEMADE SWING HARKENS BACK TO EARLIER TIMES IN THE OLD SCHOOL HOUSE
Ruth from FIVE JUST ROLLING DOWN THE ROAD had a question yesterday about leaving our dogs in the Motor Home when we are away on day trips. So far we have been very lucky & there have been no accidents in the rig. Before leaving we always have them out for a pee parade & that seems to hold them over & so far they have always been good about that. Our day trips usually start out leisurely enough but after we have been away 4, 5 or 6 hours we have a tendency to rush home to let the gang out. We always see more going to somewhere rather than coming home from somewhere. Checkers & the Motormouse never have to go out during the night but Max sometimes does.
Well, that’s about it for me tonight. Sometimes blogs just fall smoothly into place & other times it’s a big struggle just to get a paragraph done. My brain shut down half an hour ago & I’ve been running on residual effect ever since. Maybe tomorrow will be better. Say, I was just told me may be in for another J.P. Penny trip tomorrow. Ohhhhh no, say it isn’t so!!
GROANER’S CORNER:(( A little boy went up to his father and asked, "Dad, where did all of my intelligence come from?"
The father replied, "Well son, you must have got it from your mother, because I still have mine."
