FAIRIES ON MY KINDLE

DSC_0016
OUR MORNING WALK AREA
Each night when I turn out the light & climb into my bed I soon have little Fairies in my room.  They come through my screenless open window unseen & I’m not aware of them until I open my Kindle.  Only a few lines into my reading I may feel a slight bump on my forehead, a quiet flutter by my ear, or something softly alight on my hand.  And then there it is.  A little Ballerina figure on my Kindle’s cover. A couple more daintily touch down on my open screen.  I don’t shush them away, I just smilingly read around them.  They have tiny wings & dainty bodies.  To me they are wee Fairies but in true reality they are tiny Moths.  I read for 15 minutes as the Fairy Moths flit about my screen attracted by my Kindles brightness.  When I finally close the cover I am careful no tiny figurines are on the screen.   Again in the darkness my little friends quickly disappear once again into the night.  I’ve always liked Fairies ever since meeting Tinkerbell oh so many years ago.  I think we have all met Tinkerbell at some point in our childhood.  Maybe, just maybe one of these nights if I keep my window open Peter Pan himself may slip through into my room, gently arouse me from a deep sleep, take my hand & through the open window we will all merrily fly off to Never-Never Land……………..Pheebs too.

I WAITED & TRIED TO GET A PICTURE OF THE FAIRY MOTHS ON MY KINDLE BUT ALAS THEY DIDN’T COME…I DID GET A PICTURE EARLIER OF ONE ON MY BEDROOM WALL THOUGH
The Choice Auto Glass (917 Yaqui Dr Wickenburg, AZ 85390-3113 (928) 684-0994) fellas from Wickenburg showed up right on time this morning.  Didn’t say too much & went quickly to work on replacing Jeepers windshield.  These two fellas worked well together.  I helped by sitting on the porch & staying out of their way.  Half hour later job was done, new windshield in & they were off to their next job.  Turns out I did get talking to the older guy for a couple minutes after they finished & he told me he was originally from Toledo Ohio & was familiar with our neck of the Woods having been in London, Toronto, & Detroit.  New windshield looked a bit naked though.  Our bayfieldbunch.com logo was gone & I already miss our small Canadian flag.   $175 cash & we’re good for driving in the dark again.

PREPPING THE NEW WINDSHIELD

WINDSHIELD DONE, NEW HEADLIGHTS DONE & JUST WAITING FOR A COUPLE FOG LIGHT COVERS
And a few numbers from our trip which I of course forgot to include in Monday’s post trip blog.  We traveled 3,618 miles & spent $2,062 of gas.  5 fuel stops in Canada & 5 fuel stops in the States..  $1,237 spent in Canada & $825 spent south of the border.  The heavy head winds heading West in Canada really beat up our gas mileage.  No idea how many miles we got to the gallon.  I have never been interested in that number because it is something I do not need or want to know.  RV’s that size average about 8 miles to the gallon.  See why I don’t track it……

Can’t tell you much about the rest of the day because there didn’t seem to be too much to the rest of the day.  Nothing memorable anyway.

GROANER’S CORNER:(( "Hello, is this the Sheriff's Office?" "Yes. What can I do for you?"
"I'm calling to report 'bout my neighbor Virgil Smith. He's hidin' marijuana inside his firewood! Don't quite know how he gets it inside them logs, but he's hidin' it there."
"Thank you very much for the call, sir."
The next day, the Sheriff's Deputies descend on Virgil's house. They search the shed where the firewood is kept. Using axes, they bust open every piece of wood, but find no marijuana. They sneer at Virgil and leave.
Shortly, the phone rings at Virgil's house.
"Hey, Virgil! This here's Floyd. Did the Sheriff come?"
"Yeah!"
"Did they chop your firewood?"
"Yep!"
"Happy Birthday, buddy!"

  3. Screenless window? Are you from New Zealand? (They get away with not having screens 'cause they have hardly any bugs.) Be careful about that window, or one of those black and white kitties with tbe big tails may come and cuddle up with you some night!

  4. Some moths have that "dust" on their wings, and in the pale light it indeed looks like pixie dust when they are flitting around :-) The desert is such a pretty color now - how wonderful to have it right out your door! Jeepers looks nice, time to get her out for some pin-stripes though......

  5. You wrote so beautifully about the moths but it still didn't help me from freaking out if they were in our bedroom:) Not a bug fan at all.

    Jeep is looking good.

    Love the photos of Pheebs and that sunset with my favorite cactus!!
