In Friday night’s moonlight it was an accordion I heard first. And, then it was the sound of people singing in Spanish. It was Thanksgiving week-end on Ghost Town Road & a Mexican family just south of us had come together to celebrate & sing. In our travels, we have found Mexican folks to be very music oriented celebratory people. I kinda liked the distant sound drifting through the Mesquite on the quiet desert night air.
I hung out on the end of my leaf rake this morning while Kelly did a garage sale in Congress. More little southwest treasures found their way to our house including a customary skeletal Steer’s head. Some Mexican pottery along with some Mexican curtains. Average price for each item….about a dollar:))
A quick trip into Wickenburg had us listening to Christmas Carols in an Alco store. Slipped across the road to Stewarts Hardware to pick up our wooden screen door & applicable hardware. It’s anybody’s guess if it is going to install correctly. We might just have to find somebody with a sledge hammer to make it fit!! Getting a standard size door to work well in an old house is a real Turkey shoot. Oh, & mentioning Turkeys….yep, turkey sandwiches for lunch:))
It was early afternoon when Jean & Skip rolled in with doggy Pals, Jake, Sophie & Louie. Last time we saw them was a couple winters ago at the Clark Dry Lake Bed near Borrego Springs California. Jake & Pheebe didn’t exactly hit it off right away today but after a bit all was well & they were best Pals. The whole gang gets along great & it’s nice for Pheebs to have some Pals to play with.
JEAN & SKIP ROLL IN EARLY THIS AFTERNOON
DON’T KNOW WHICH ONE IS LOUIE & WHICH ONE IS SOPHIE BUT THAT’S JAKE ON THE RIGHT FOR SURE
NOW HERE’S A HAPPY SNOW BIRD FAMILY:))
We all sat on our front porch for a couple hours & it was nice to get caught up on everything, compare notes, & set a few fellow RVing Bloggers ears abuzzing:))
LOTS OF SMOOCHES GOING ON TODAY
We have enough room to easily park any size RV on our property so we suggested Jean & Skip just stay right here in our newly fenced yard where it would be safe for the doggy guys to be out & about. Pheebe liked that idea as well.
JEAN & SKIP’S BOONDOCKING SPOT IN OUR SIDE YARD
YAAAAY, HERE COMES THE PIZZA:)))))
It was a good night for Pizza so Kelly & Jean headed off over to the Congress Mercantile Depot to bring back a big yummy fully loaded 300 pound Supreme. Well, maybe not quite that heavy, but if we keep it up…..we’ll all be that heavy for sure.
AND A GOOD PIZZA WAS HAD BY ALL
