SOME OF TODAY’S BIRD PICS ARE A TAD FUZZY BUT HAVE DECIDED TO INCLUDE THEM ANYWAY
The steady rains of a few days ago pointed out to me where the low spots in our crushed stone gravel were. This morning I was busy with the wheel barrow filling in a few low spots.
My Aunt Jean is coming to Arizona:)))))) It was a tough call for her but she thinks her health has improved to a point where she can make the long journey from Sarasota Florida. Jean will be flying into Phoenix on February 8th & hopping aboard a Shuttle Bus to bring her to Surprise Arizona. We will meet her there in the parking lot of the Golden Corral. Looking forward to some exciting new adventures shortly:))
IVAN is asking, ‘Has anyone lost this dog’. He has a photo of a little fellow who may have wondered away from somebody’s site in Quartzsite. Currently being held by the Quartzsite police……the dog that is, not Ivan.
Merikay says, “I find planning a next trip goes a long way toward keeping me from getting too depressed”! I couldn’t agree with Merikay more & I know when all the excitement settles down from our house fun here in Congress, I will once again be restless. MERIKAY is also now officially retired & deciding on what to do about all her arts & crafts supplies. Some have already made the trip to the dump but what about all that ‘fake fur in the closet’:))
What would you pack if you were traveling off to another country & roughing it a bit? Gaelyn, over at the GEOGYPSY is heading out for a 6 week trip to Africa in a few days & is traveling light. Check in to see how she is going about figuring what to take & what not to take. She has had to do some clever thinking here & what about taking a camera tripod?
These recent rains sure have kick started our grass & weeds to growing. I’m already seeing green grass & weeds sprouting through the crushed gravel I recently put down. Oh no, are we going to have to buy a darn lawn mower now. Surely not in the desert………. say it isn’t so:((
It has been nearly 25 years since I first came across the hauntingly melodic guitar sounds of WILL ACKERMAN & to this day when I hear any piece of his music, I am still immediately drawn to this man’s beautiful guitar styling's. PASSAGE, one of Will Ackerman’s early albums turned out to be my first journey into his music & to this day remains one of my all time favorite albums. Sirius Satellite Radio’s ‘The Spa’ 068 frequently plays Will & anytime I hear his music it brings a calm comforting smile to my face.
A year ago today we were in Slab City California for a few days. Had a charging problem with our solar system so stopped by Solar Mike’s & he installed a new heavier duty fuse for us. That solved the problem. Mike is the fellow who originally installed our solar system back in December of 07 & we highly recommend him & his work. Darn nice easy going fella too:)) SLAB CITY ONE YEAR AGO TODAY.
CASPAR THE GHOST BIRD & FOR SURE THAT MUST BE, BATBIRD

OOOOPS, GOT A LITTLE CACTUS STICKER THIS MORNING
And finally, with a bit of luck, we will be off to Quartzsite in the morning with our 33’ Class A Motorhome & returning later in the day with our 23’ Class C Sunseeker…:))
HEY, WATCHA DOIN WITH THAT CAMERA MISTER!!
GROANER’S CORNER:(( Dan was a single guy living at home with his father and working in the family business. When he found out he was going to inherit a fortune when his sickly father died, he decided he needed to find a wife with whom to share his fortune. One evening, at an investment meeting, Dan spotted the most beautiful woman he had ever seen. Her natural beauty took his breath away. "I may look like just an ordinary guy," he said to her, "but in just a few months my father will die and I will inherit $200 million." Impressed, the woman asked for his business card, and three days later she became his Stepmother. Women are so much better at financial planning than men.
