BYE BYE SOFA, HELLO RECLINERS:))

KELLY’S RECLINER ON LEFT & MY ‘MISSION RECLINER’ ON RIGHT
Finished my brush clearing along the back fence line early this morning. Hoping this will save us a couple dollars. The fence guy doesn't have to do it before starting the fencing. Of course I am getting the cart before the horse because we still have not heard back from the fencing guy. Oh well, when we do, he won't have to waste his fine fence talents clearing pesky brush.

THE OLD RUSTED FENCE RUNS THROUGH THAT CACTUS & I HAVE CLEARED EVERYTHING BACK FROM THE FENCE LINE FOR A COUPLE FEET
By 9 a.m. I moved inside out of the sun & busied myself hanging pictures & putting up some lighting around the front porch. Kelly was off to Wickenburg to do some wheeling & dealing on a couple pieces of furniture. Once a week into town is plenty for me & having just been to Wickenburg Monday, that was enough of that & I was glad to stay home. Fired up the IPod/Bose & had the old house just a swinging. Probably been a few years since Glen Miller, Benny Goodman & the whole crew from the Big Band Era shook the aging rafters in our little Ranch house.  Don’t want to shake em too hard though.  Not a level floor in the place or a square corner anywhere, but it sure suits our lifestyle & we love it. Besides, we are both a little off center ourselves, so the house is a good fit for us:))

WE PICKED UP THAT PALM FROND AT THE SALTON SEA LAST WINTER

Glad to finally see this day arrive & be over with. Maybe politically minded people can get back to showing a little civilized good will towards one another again. Politics sure have a habit of bringing out some of the worst in people. As we traveled across the States last week & turned our television on at the end of each day it was simply sickening to hear the areas repetitive local politicians trashing each other over & over & over again.  Soap Opera theatrics, gutter sniping, slime balling....& worse. Almost made me want to up & spit on the floor!!  Politics….baaaa Humbug!!

KELLY FOUND THIS RATHER UNIQUE DRESSER
Kelly was home about 2:30 & said some furniture was on the way. She had swung a deal with the same place we had bought some stuff last March. We decided over the past few days the sofa we had bought was not comfortable. In Bayfield, we both like our recliners so Kelly swung a deal with the lady to take back the sofa in exchange for a couple recliners. No, not a straight exchange:((   Keep in mind, this is all used furniture I'm talking about here.

AND WHY 3 RECLINERS?  WELL, THERE ARE 3 OF US YOU KNOW

Couple fellas showed up about 5 this afternoon with the recliners plus a few other things Kelly had found.  Loaded the sofa onto their utility trailer & they were off back to Wickenburg.

GLAD TO SEE THE SOFA GO, IT JUST WASN’T COMFORTABLE
We spent the next half hour or so playing musical recliners.  What goes best where & who wants what chair.  Finally worked it out & I ended up with a different recliner.  Pheebs ended up with my old recliner & Kelly ended up with her own recliner.  And a good time was had by all:))

Kelly & were very flattered this morning when we read JoAnn Dubrouillet’s 'BAYFIELD' segment of her recent trip to Canada. JoAnn & friends Kathy & Larry visited us back on SEPTEMBER 17TH. Thanks JoAnn & it was great to see you:))

FINALLY GOT OUR NEW BBQ SET UP…COMPLETE WITH A COUPLE STEAKS
GROANER'S CORNER:(( A woman rushed into the supermarket to pick up a few items. She headed for the express line where the clerk was talking on the phone with his back turned to her. "Excuse me," she said, "I'm in a hurry. Could you check me out, please?" The clerk turned, stared at her for a second, looked her up and down, smiled and said, "Not bad.

  3. I am so with you on this election (put in whatever word you want). Maybe tomorrow we can start to regain our sanity at least until next time. So nice of you to make sure the Pheebster has a great recliner.

  4. Looks like a home, nice and comfy. What a difference a little furniture makes. I am intrigued by your BBQ grill. Finally had to take a mirror (Actually, I was lazy so used a CD that was right next to me) to read the make:
    "O grill". I thought it had blower there on the end, so finally found the instruction manual, and it is the control valve sticking out. Give us a full report: how were the steaks?

  5. Nothing beats a recliner for comfortable relaxing. Glad you all THREE have one!! Pheebs sure looks like she is enjoying hers. I had a dream about your house the other night - have no idea why. Very strange.

  6. Can't agree with you more about the election stuff. Just glad it is over. Looks like the house is really coming together

  7. Nice that you have you own recliners, such a great way to go. The BBQ looks like it could get a lot of use there.

  8. You two move fast..It would have taken us 2 years to get that settled. McGyver has trouble with "decision making"...And while we're on the topic of decisions, I was pretty sad about the US election..but everybody deserves a 2nd chance. Just hope it wasn't all rhetoric yet again...:-(

  9. AL, we agree with you 100%! Thank goodness all of the political ads are gone with all of their mud slinging!

    Love it that Pheebs got her own recliner! LOL

    Your house is looking very nice. And it doesn't move when some one walks to another room! lol

  10. I voted for God's Kingdom back in 1975 and am waiting for it to bring true peace and security to the earth. Revelation 21:3,4. That will be soon:-)

  11. I love your little ranch house... It reminds me of the 50's, except TV's were much thicker back in those days :)

    Ditto on the "politics." The "divide" grows...

  12. You have the place looking great! Must be starting to feel like home. Now is the time to get beds and sleep overnight. But it might be fun to keep sleeping in the camper and use your day house to play in.
