RAINBOW AFTER TODAY’S STORM
A partial cloud cover kept the temperatures from dropping below freezing last night for the first time in a long time & that was sooooo nice for a change. I really do miss my warm stargazing nights!!
I took the photo below on a totally wrong camera setting a week ago & the image that came back was black & totally underexposed. I saw a faint line between mountain & sky so was able to bring the image back a bit. The photo is not exactly what I saw but does have an unintentional old effect to it that is kinda different. It’s just an example of what Google’s free Picasa 3.8. can do for you even if you make some very bad photo mistakes. And we all make them……:))
PHOTO AT LEFT IS TOTALLY UNDEREXPOSED …..SALVAGED PHOTO AT RIGHT.

Slipped into Elfrida this afternoon & popped into the Library at 1 where the weekly meeting of the Tumbleweed Photo Group takes place. Always nice to be around folks with like minded interests. Todays photo topic centered around the Whitewater photo shoot we were all out on last week.

It’s not unusual to see people carrying guns in these parts & I must admit we still do take notice whenever we observe someone with a gun & holster. We just never see that in Canada. Below is a couple ranchers we saw in a restaurant for breakfast just a couple miles from the Mexican border. These fellows wearing guns don’t bother me but while getting gas a week ago in Elfrida a young guy pulls in for gas with an old car, a bunch of dingle berries hanging on the mirror, baseball cap on backwards & gun so big on his hip that it almost pulled his pants down. I nodded a cordial hello & he totally ignored me. Young guy with a big gun carrying an even bigger attitude. Now, that bothers me!!!!
The country wide storm blew into our neck of the woods about 2 this afternoon with thunder, high winds, sleet & rain. Temps dropped & by the time I got back to the rig Kelly had the heat cranked & all was cozy & warm in Paradise. We had planned on going Geocache Jeeping with Jeanie & Ray tomorrow but this weather has changed our plans & we will head out next week instead. Could be in for a few mighty boring days until this storm front moves out of the area.
GROANER’S CORNER:(( Did you know it gets so hot in Arizona that Roadrunners have to use pot holders to pull Lizards out of the ground & ranchers have to feed their chickens crushed ice to keep them from laying hard boiled eggs. Yep, it’s true alright:))
