ALWAYS ENJOY OUR NEIGHBOR’S CACTUS GARDEN ON OUR MORNING WALKS
Not often we seem to get gusty winds rolling through our area as compared to other parts of the southwest we have been but we did have some wind come through Saturday night that set up a bit of sporadic howling in our roof. It also brought in some cooler air.
WE HAVE LOTS OF GREAT ROCKS TO SCRAMBLE ON CLOSE TO OUR HOUSE SO NOW WE JUST NEED THE ENERGY TO GET OUT THERE & SCRAMBLE ON THEM
Had a bit of soreness in my right hip reminiscent of last winter so figured I had better back off my neighborly clean-up project for a bit. I’ve never been one good at pacing myself when it comes to doing things. Seem to have it in my head that a week long project has to be all finished up in 20 minutes:(( Did manage to scratch around in the dirt a bit & get 6 more Yucca’s planted though:))
DALLY & PHEEBS RACE ALONG A FENCE LINE THIS MORNING
Oatman Arizona was one of the destinations we were heading for nearly 2 years ago when we became discouraged one Saturday morning due to traffic congestion in Lake Havasu. We never did make it to Oatman & re-routed ourselves further East ending up in some little place called Congress. To make a long story short…..we are still here. But RAY & CINDY did make it to Oatman just a few days ago on their southbound journey. Oatman is an old mining town on Route 66 known for it’s wandering Burrows in the street. Oh, & Clark Gable & Carol Lombard as well.

GYPSY is finally out of the hospital & staying with family until she is strong enough to head home & resume her normal life. She will probably soon have some camping plans simmering on a back burner. And it looks like all that nasty winter weather back east has succeeded in blowing RETIRED ROD & his spiffy new Jeep Wrangler all the way back to his Arizona digs. Better get all that road salt washed off right quick.
A GAMBLE’S QUAIL STROLLS THROUGH ONE OF OUR CACTUS GARDENS
We’ve been through Death Valley California a couple times but have never made it to Scotty’s Castle. From things I have read it is quite a place & well worth seeing. Janna & Mike were just there a few days ago. Janna relates the history behind the castle & her photos depict quite a grand mansion in the desert. SCOTTY'S CASTLE 1 --- SCOTTY'S CASTLE 2.

GROANER’S CORNER:(( What did the Buddhist say to the hot dog vendor? I’ll have one with everything on it.
The hot dog vendor then gives him the dog and the Buddhist gives him a $20 bill. The vendor does not offer any change.
Buddhist – Hey, where’s my change?
Vendor – Change must come from within.
