NICE TO SEE THE BRITTLE BUSHES BEGINNING TO BLOOM
Commenters Ruth & Pam inquired about Dally. We saw Dally three days ago in her yard & she was as excited & jumping as high as ever. Haven’t seen her the last couple days. Her owner has been taking Dally with her to Wickenburg some days & that might explain us not seeing her the last couple mornings. Last we saw her she was being loaded into the back of a pick-up truck………
MAMA KEEPS AN EYE ON HER RECENTLY NEW BORNS
When Kelly finished cutting my hair Sunday she said, ‘we better get a picture of that for the blog’ & I said ‘no’ there’s been enough photos of me in the blog lately. She took a couple anyway but I forgot they were in my Canon point & shoot. That’s why no pics were included. So with some reluctance on my part today Kelly did take a few more photos & I have included them below. What’s left of my beard may stay or it may not. It was an afterthought as I began chopping away so if I keep it I will have to refine it a bit. Mike McFall over at North Ranch has a similar style beard & I always thought it looked good on him. Of course Mike is a heck of a lot better looking feller than I am for sure………
I AM PURPOSELY LOOKING GRUMPIER HERE THAN I NORMALLY DO
THESE WERE THE 2 PICS IN MY CAMERA I FORGOT ABOUT…MINUTES AFTER THESE WERE TAKEN I SLIPPED INTO MY WASHROOM & STARTED CHOPPING AWAY AT THE BEARD
NOT BEING BORN WITH A HAPPY SMILEY FACE IT’S HARD FOR ME TO STRETCH MY STONE FACIAL FEATURES INTO A GREAT BIG SMILE…I ACTUALLY DID THINK I WAS SMILING IN THESE PICS, BUT………..
Kelly & I headed off for Wickenburg earlier this morning before the heat got up to high. Groceries at Safeway & two quick stops at TSC & Stewart’s Hardware. I went along to Safeway to brush up on my people socializing skills a bit. I do that once & awhile. Did good but of course there were not too many people in there to test my patience. And nobody tried to mow me down with their cart. Hey, maybe it was the haircut & the fact I wasn’t looking like the wild man of Borneo for a change. Say, ya don’t suppose there’s some hope for me yet do ya………………….
ROSE BUSHES BLOOM IN A NEIGHBOR’S VACANT YARD
Sassy has a ‘must read’ post for all Canadian travellers to the U.S. It is from the ‘CANADIAN SNOWBIRD'S ASSOCIATION’ & it clearly answers many of the questions travelers may have regarding lengths of stays in the States, plus some medical info & helpful do’s & don’ts at the border crossing. Another month or so & many of us will have to be doing that border thing again. And after reading this report did you know the border people have technology in place to hear what you are saying in your vehicle up to a mile away. How many of us sit in our RV’s cursing the long waits & lengthy inspections of the vehicles in front of us eh. Well Kelly does I know:))
NEW PRICKLY PEAR CACTUS PADS FORMING
And for all you talented wood working do-it-yourselfers out there just a reminder about the KAYAK PROGRESS over at John’s blog at ‘Just Finding Our Way’. Amazes me the skill & patience these types of people have.
Les dropped by to install brackets into the cement at the base of our porch posts. He’s one busy guy & didn’t have time to do it but left his tools for me to do it. Drill the holes in the cement & power the screws into the holes. Easy enough for anyone right? Nope, easy mechanical stuff anyone can do rarely works for me & today was no exception. I might as well go flap my arms & try flying to the Moon as to try doing anything mechanical:((
GROANER’S CORNER:(( A doctor is in the habit of having an almond daiquiri every evening on the way home. One night, the bartender finds himself out of almond extract, so he substitutes hickory instead.
The doctor complains. Says the bartender "It's a hickory daiquiri, Doc".
She read "David Copperfield" when she was pregnant and, sure enough, when her son was born he was full of the Dickens!
I’ve been reading something very interesting — Stephen Hawking’s latest book about anti-gravity. I just can’t put it down.
What do you get when you cross a pig and a centipede?
