THESE 2 WILY COYOTES POPPED OUT OF A DRIVEWAY JUST IN FRONT OF US THIS MORNING
Woke up this morning feeling better than I thought I was going to feel, so with that thought in mind I made it a point to begin the process of putting our Motorhome back in order. Not all the 6 years of clutter mind you, just the necessary things that will make it nice, cozy, & livable again.
On the long drive back from Quartzsite Thursday I was thinking the same thing so many commenters have said. Just wasn’t meant to be & somewhere down the road something better will transpire & the reason for Thursdays disappointment will become clear.
<<< THIS CURVED BILL THRASHER HAD HIS EYE ON ME THIS MORNING
Just want to put in a good word for the 3 people we dealt with at ‘RV’s For Less’ in Quartzsite. Dan, Summie, & Danielle all treated us fair & tried to make the deal work in our favor, but in the end it was a 4th party, their Boss from a different dealership, who didn’t like our ‘southwest taste’ & squashed the deal by offering us much less for our coach. Thanks to Dan & Summie for trying, & thanks for your honesty.
Okay, moving right along, it’s time to get the train back on track. And, I guess that means my morning weather report. Hey, I’m Canadian you know & we Canadians do get a bit pre-occupied about our weather. We were pushing 70 today under clear blue skies & any day we can leave our doors wide open is always a winning weather day for the Bayfield Bunch:))
HMMMM, WONDER IF THOSE WILY COYOTES LIVE IN THERE
About mid morning, Kelly headed off to Wickenburg on a grocery run. Of course with Kelly it is never just a grocery run. She’s always bopping in here & there checking out sales, looking for bargains, & forever keeping an eye out for free stuff.
Pheebs & I stuck close to home keeping busy with the Motorhome re-structuring & just general puttering around type stuff. Painted all my garden tool handles Taos Blue. Not only protects the wood from weather but makes the shovels, rakes, etc more visible & easier for me to spot.

JANNA is still having problems with Spam & has had to block her ‘Anonymous’ commenters again. I & many others have had this same problem. I blocked Anonymous comments a long time ago but left a different kind of option open that has worked well for years. I have a ‘Shout Box’ in our right hand column & for anyone who can’t comment as Anonymous in our blogger comment section, they can always comment as a Guest in my Shout Box. Or, they can easily add their name. I’ve had that Shout Box for maybe 3 or 4 years & so far so good.
Ever notice how people say things to you without ever thinking about what they are saying. And they will say the exact same thing to the person they meet before you & the next person after you. I swung into the McDonald's drive-thru line one time & ordered up a Burrito & coffee. When I rolled up to the cashier window she said, "I must be dyslexic this morning." She was half talking to herself as well as me as she seemed to fumble with a roll of quarters. I wanted to reach out, put my hand on her shoulder & sincerely say, "thank you so much for an original greeting." Doesn't it just bug ya when people say, "Hello, how are you today." It's a robotic programmed quip we all have that comes out as an automatic saying, & do most people really care when they say that to a passing stranger. If they did they would stop & wait for a response. But they don't, & just blow right by & lay the same saying on the next person. Wouldn't you just like to turn around some time, grab hold of a person & say, "Soooo, you really want to know how I am today do you!!!!"
As I rolled up to the second pick-up window at the same McDonalds another lady fried my brain with the standard high pitched, "Have a nice day." That decades old worn out insincere verbal piece of dung is like fingernails on a chalkboard for me. It's another one of those habitual programmed responses that doesn't mean a hill of beans. That busy window lady couldn't care less if I ate my Burrito up side down or drove over a flock of lost fish worms.
Have you ever been not paying attention at a grocery store & crashed your cart into somebody & have them tell you they're "sorry." My fault, but they say they're sorry. What's with that. I'm the one who should be saying, 'sorry' but of course I never do because the other person has already apologized for my mistake. No point in two of us standing there trying to out-sorry each other because before long somebody else would come speeding around the corner, crash into us & say......well, you know!!
