I JUST LOVE RIDING IN THE JEEP DAD
Been sitting here so long scratching my head for something to write about that I have wood splinters under my fingernails now. Aside from a spin on my Motorcycle this morning it's been a rather run of the mill day. Kelly spent some time at Deer Park Lodge again & we picked up the Jeep at the Bayfield Garage this afternoon. Jeep's shocks & brakes were good, air filter only needed blowing out & not replacing. All fluid levels checked, oil changed & tires rotated. She's a good to go:))
We did receive an email today from the folks keeping any eye on our house in Congress Arizona & they said with all the recent rains the desert is looking about as green as they have ever seen it. Oh how I would love to see the Sonoran desert in it’s finest greenery. They also said our house is doing fine with no leaks. Needless to say that is a big relief for us.
ANOTHER COUPLE MONTHS & THIS IS WHERE WE’LL BE:))
KELLY IN HER PYJAMAS WATCHES ANOTHER MORNING SUN RISE OVER THE WEAVER MOUNTAINS FROM OUR FRONT PORCH
OH BOY, WONDER HOW I’M GONNA GET OUR 36’ CLASS A IN WHERE OUR 26’ CLASS C USED TO SIT
WHEN I LOOK AT THESE PHOTOS FROM JUST 8 MONTHS AGO I SEE THINGS I HAD ALREADY FORGOTTEN ABOUT
AND WE’LL SOON BE TAKING OUR MORNING WALKS RIGHT HERE IN THIS SCENIC DESERT JUST A BLOCK BEHIND OUR HOUSE
I talked to Aunt Jean in Sarasota Florida one night last week & she is still holding her own. Still managing her morning walks & 18 hole Tuesdays on the golf course. Said the humidity was so bad last Tuesday that by the 4th hole in the morning they were all soaking wet from sweating in the heat. She has lived in Florida since the early 60's so I think it is something she has acclimatized to. She sure handles humidity better than I do.
Not sure what is going on with my blog's side bar. Readers have been saying things disappear & then reappear. When I checked this morning my 'Fellow Bloggers' gadget was missing. This afternoon it was back but soon gone again so I don't know what kind of shenanigans are going on there. When I click on my tools icon I get a pop-up from Blogger saying, "Whoops that's an error. We apologize for the inconvenience." I don't know if other Bloggers are having similar problems with their blogs.
Pheebs & I spent most of the day in the house just staying cool in the A/C. I went out a couple times, whacked some weeds & hastily retreated back into the house. And I did take the Motorcycle for a run just to feel that that great blast of cooling warm air in my face. Just gotta love that:))
I was saddened this morning to read of Spike's passing at RVSUE AND HER CANINE CREW. We first met Sue & her two terriers Bridget & Spike at Darby Well road back on December 9th 2011. The last time we saw Spike was in Arizona's Kofa Mountains when we hiked a trail near Palm Canyon on December 28th 2013. Sad days at RV Sue's as Sue & Bridget begin their plans for continued travels without their best Pal & beloved fellow team member Spike. Our thoughts are with Sue & Bridget as we remember hiking that Kofa Mountain trail with the intrepid little Spike.

GROANER’S CORNER:(( The doctors may have won the annual softball game between themselves and their lawyer opponents, but they lost the public relations war. Here's how the lawyers reported the game: "The lawyers powered their way to a second place finish, while the doctors managed to finish next to last."
The groaner is pretty good tonight. I had to think a minute!ReplyDelete
I'm always sorry to hear about a doggie pal crossing that rainbow bridge. I was thinking about my dog, Lady, this morning and how much I still miss her.
That opening photo of Pheebs is probably the cutest I've ever seen!ReplyDelete
Great photos of Spike, Bridget, and Sue:) So thoughtful!
Just found Wandering Willy on someone's blog and see that you have commented on his blog. He has not posted since 2011. Do you know what has happened with him? He lives in my province, not too far from where I am.ReplyDelete
It was a nice day to be out on your motorcycle, cruising the paved backroads.ReplyDelete
Nice tribute to spike... Sue rescued him and gave him an adventure filled life.... And now he is inured on a great boondock in the adventure he truly loved.... Forever...!ReplyDelete
A lovely tribute to Spike - great picture of him! Never got to meet him but the news yesterday had me in tears.ReplyDelete
Great news about your house in Congress.
I was also sad to hear about Spike, we met him in Borrego one winter.
It makes me very sad when I hear of someone losing their furbaby. Our pets are our family and mean so much to us.ReplyDelete
Al... I'm sorry I'm late visiting this page of your blog. It was very thoughtful of you to note your sadness at Spike's passing and to revive memories of that day when he hiked Kofa with you, Kelly, Ann, Bill, and me.ReplyDelete
That last photo of Spike is a treasure! I will always cherish it. Thank you very much.
