A GREAT AFTERNOON CLEANING UP JUNK AT THE PROPERTY
I lost interest in Garage Sales a long time ago. I suppose it was about the time I realized most of the stuff I was always having to move from point A to point B at home had come from garage sale places. However, it’s looking like I just might have to re-interest myself in garage sales again if we land this Ghost Town Road property deal. Matter of fact, North Ranch had their annual, and very popular garage sale event just today. Almost, & I say almost, got myself to go. But, sounded like toooooo many people for me so I stayed at the rig with Pheebs & Motor while Kelly went. It just makes for a nicer experience for her when she doesn’t have to drag me around mumbling & grumbling. Kelly was out the door at 7:30 & I was still trying to shake myself out of my pajamas. Yes it’s true, men wear PJ’s too:))
A LOT OF COW SMOOCHING GOING ON THIS MORNING AGAIN
Saturday mornings are always my fav so just enjoyed puttering about while Kelly was up the road at the sale. Did the dishes, cleaned up around the site, had me a nice campfire going & took the doggers for a walk through our Mesquite Savannah. Awwwww yes, how sweet it is out here in the boonies:))
AWWWWW YES, HOW SWEET IT IS:))
Kelly was back shortly after noon with things for the Ghost Town Road house already. Now, how’s that for being optimistic. In fact she had already taken a couple lamps & things there & put them in a shed. She was kinda pooped from a morning of browsing so I loaded up the Pheebs, my clippers, saw, hatchet, rake, shovel & off we went over to the property.
PHEEBS LOVES RIDING IN THE FRONT SEAT OF THE JEEP
Yes, yes, I know….we have only made the offer so why am I starting work on the property already. Well, that’s just the kind of guy I am….always impatient & wanting to get started on things, NOW!! Even if the deal goes south at the last minute at least it gives me something to do I enjoy. The property needs a real good clean up & all the overgrown trees & shrubs are badly in need of trimming so I see this as an opportunity for me to get myself some much needed & enjoyable exercise:))
SPACIOUS SHED ON THE PROPERTY & KELLY BOUGHT THAT TABLE IN THE CORNER AT THE NORTH RANCH GARAGE SALE THIS MORNING
Talked to one of the neighbor’s for a bit & enjoyed listening to all the birds in the back yard. Many Cactus Wrens & I soon became aware several neighbor’s had Roosters. I love the sound of Roosters. What a bonus. Got me a fire going to burn up all the old empty cardboard boxes scattered about. Also burnt up some brush. Next time over I had better wear myself a long sleeved shirt because trimming back those prickly Mesquite trees sure took a scratchy toll on my bare arms.
TRIMMED A BUNCH OF MESQUITE & PALO VERDE TREES TODAY
Kelly also picked up some really nice potted cactus plants cheap at the garage sale so we’ll get those in the ground tomorrow too. Oh how I love doing this kind of stuff:)))))) Brings back great memories of when we first moved into our place in Bayfield & all the work we poured into landscaping & fixing everything up over the years.
KELLY PICKED THESE UP AT THE GARAGE SALE
Lots of folks will be turning their clocks ahead tonight, but not us. Arizona is always on the same time & it never changes. Now, how’s that for keeping things nice & simple twice a year…….
I like the post Chuck & Geri from HAPPY TRAILS did on their hometown of Truth or Consequences, New Mexico recently. Nice idea & concept. I can tell a lot of work went into putting it together with all the photos & links. Well done guys & great idea:))
Had a question about whether we would keep our house in Bayfield now that we may have a place in Arizona too. The answer to that is ‘yes’ we will keep our place in Bayfield Ontario. At least for now. The Motorhome isn’t going to last forever & with the skyrocketing price of fuel we have always felt it important to secure a winter place in the sunny southwest while the Real Estate market was still in our favor. My greatest fear is being stuck at home through another horribly boring long cold Canadian winter!! I’ve had over 60 years of that & couldn’t care less if I ever saw a flake of snow again. Sitting out gloomy winters in the North is just way too unhealthy, both mentally & physically.
HEY, WATCH THAT COLD NOSE BUDDY
Now that the weather is warming up into the 80’s I am very concerned about Motor & Pheebs running into a Rattlesnake. Especially the Pheebs with the way she runs around all over the place curiously exploring every nook & cranny. WHERE'S WEAVER just came across a big one on a pathway at Justin’s Diamond J RV Park in Tucson, Arizona. It is a very big worry for us.
NO MORE OF THAT COLD NOSE STUFF…..GOT IT!!!!
DELL joined our Blog Followers list on Friday & this morning I noticed P has joined as well. Check out P’s site for some consistently nice clear & crisp photos. Thanks for stopping by folks.
YEP, IT’S QUITE A FAN CLUB THE PHEEBS HAS
GROANER’S CORNER:(( An employee approached his boss regarding a dispute on his pay-check…
Employee – Sir, this is $100 less than my salary.
Boss – I know. But last month, when you were overpaid $100, by mistake, you didn’t complain!
Employee – Well, I don’t mind an occasional mistake, sir, but two in a row seems like it’s becoming a habit!!
