ORGAN PIPE CACTUS AND 2 YOUNG SAGUAROS AT LEFT
Sunday night’s post title said we were back in the land of giant Saguaros but after publishing it I realized I never put in a photo of one single Saguaro. Today’s post takes care of that little oversight:))
SUNRISE AT DARBY WELLS
A pitter pattering of raindrops upon our roof caught my attention Sunday night around 9. Continued on & off again through the night. Not a heavy rain, just a pitter patter. Ground didn’t even appear wet this morning & how nice the aroma from sweet smelling Creosote bushes after a light rain. I was outside at 7:45 in pajamas & house coat with shovel & rake in hand cleaning up loose gravel and stones around our campsite. Sooooo great not to have neighbors:))
WE ARE DEFINITELY IN SAGUARO LAND
How nice it is not to have our heaters going full blasters all night just to stay warm. Kept our Blue Flame heater on low & there was no chill in the air at all. Weatherman is calling for clearing skies this afternoon.
TEDDY BEAR CHOLLA & A GROUP OF SAGUAROS
Great to be back walking among the tall green Saguaro cactus in the Sonoran desert again this morning. Pheebs loves bounding along the sandy washes & up the rock strewn banks through the Mesquite, Palo Verde trees & Barrel Cactus. Minutes after returning from our walk she was sacked out on my bed.
Despite needing a few groceries in Ajo we decided to just stay put & soak up the peace & desert serenity surrounding us. No need to rush off anywhere.
Kelly’s kind of been rattling my chain to stop in Quartzsite so she can pick up a few things but I have been rattling the chain right back saying up till a couple years ago we had been there 4 years in a row & besides, who needs all that chaotic people madness. Like Las Vegas, glad we experienced it when we did but I don’t see no darned good reason to go back no more.

HEDGEHOG & BARREL CACTUS
Question in our Shout Box wondering where we are going for the next 5 weeks. Short answer….don’t know. Only stop we might make for sure is Slab City to have Solar Mike check out a few small problems with our Solar system. Other than that, who knows. We’re in Ajo right now but for how long we have no idea yet. Could be a couple days or a couple weeks. Whenever the Spirit moves us….we’ll move.
THESE 2 ARE FOR YOU RV SUE….PHEEBS IS WONDERING WHERE SPIKE AND BRIDGET WENT
Finally remembered to put our solar panels up about 1 o’clock this afternoon & hoisted our flags while I was at it. So easy setting up our satellite TV dish now with the new tripod. Almost doesn’t seem fair when things are so easy. Definitely not normal!!
The Last Paragraph: Well, well, well, couldn’t believe it but just minutes ago they announced on a B.C. news channel Tim Hortons is going to bring their coffee cup sizes in line with other coffee shops. Boy, have I been ranting about that for a long time!!!! Here is just one of my posts and my rant begins about a third of the way down….TIM HORTONS....THE DUMBING DOWN OF CANADIAN COFFEE DRINKERS.

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."
