NIGHT TIME AT OUR HOUSE
Hip continues to improve & I walked comfortably around the block with Kelly & the Pheebs this morning. Not out of the woods yet, but getting there.
SPOTTED THIS WILY COYOTE AHEAD OF US ON OUR WALK THIS MORNING
Most exciting thing to happen to us today was having fellow RV’er & one time Blogger, Wandering Willy drop by. Always good to see WW. Nice fella. We’ve known him for about 4 years now & first met Wild Bill in Borrego Springs California. It was Wandering Willy & fellow RV Blogger IVAN we boon docked with for a few days at Bouse Arizona last year. And, it was those fellas who were instrumental in repairing our Satellite dish after a nasty night wind slam dunked it into the desert floor. WW worked at that repair like a true craftsman.
WANDERING WILL HIS VERY SELF
AND A BIG FAREWELL WAVE FROM WW AS HE HEADS BACK TO HIS BOONDOCKING SITE NEAR VULTURE PEAK
Moved the Motorhome to what will be it’s regular spot while at home here in Congress. Close to electric & water so it now has it’s own little RV spot right next to the house.
With all the start up expense of getting our house set up we have had to prioritize & cut back on some of our spending. No utility trailer this year & our second load of crushed stone to complete phase 2 will have to wait until next year. Some of the more creative outside landscaping & cactus/shrub & tree planting will probably have to wait until next year as well. Had hoped to get a bunch of plants in along the new fence line complete with a water drip line for the hot summer. But, we just have to put the brakes on our spending for now. Awww nuts, hate when that happens:((
Bev, I just checked that tonnage number in JB'S comment awhile back & he says, “Have fun with the rocks Al, we spread 350 tons on an acre of our place. That made it something like 2 inches deep”………… John & Brenda have horses on their place at Dog Pound South digs near Phoenix. They are Canadians from Alberta where their Ranch up there is called, yep, Dog Pound North:))
ROPE LIGHTING MAKES FOR A NICE GLOW
Our larger dining room table has become base of operations for Kelly. Saturday, when over at John & Jackies, Kelly spotted a table John had some saws, grinders, & drills piled on out in the the garage area. Kelly said she liked the table. John quickly hauled the saws off the table & said to Kelly, “it’s yours”. And, that’s how we came upon our bigger dining room table:))
KELLY HANDLES A SKYPE CALL
A few years ago when we met John & Jackie, John gave us a tour of their house in Elfrida. On their basement wall hung Big Mouth Billy Bass the singing fish. (and Billy moves while he sings too) Occasionally over the years, through email contact with John, I made reference to Billy Bass. Saturday, John presented us with……Big Mouth Billy Bass himself. Billy is now a proud member of the Bayfield Bunch & hangs prominently on our wall. And, what song does Billy sing? Well, he actually sings two songs, but I think he does a real fine job with Bobby McFerrin’s…..DON'T WORRY BE HAPPY:))
GROANER’S CORNER:(( One day three bats decided to have a blood sucking competition.
The first bat went out and came back with blood all over his mouth.
"Where did you get all that blood from?"
"You see that rabbit over there? I sucked all its blood out."
The next bat went out and came back with blood half covering his face.
"Cool! Where did you get all that blood from?"
"You see that deer over there? Well I sucked all it blood out." He replied.
So the next bat went out and came back with blood all over his face.
"Whoa!! Where did you get all that blood from?!"
To which he replied "You see that pole over there?…… I smacked right into it."
