SOUTH OF CONGRESS IS WICKENBURG’S VULTURE PEAK ON THE HORIZON
Thank you to readers for your concern, good wishes, & suggestions for Kelly’s health. She did feel better this morning & actually made 2 trips to the library & on one of those trips took Pheebs in for a $5 nail trim. We’re just taking things one day at a time right now.
WE SURE DO LOVE OUR DESERT PLAYGROUND
Had we forgot about it being Halloween we were certainly reminded of it while driving out to our walking point in the desert this morning. Bobby (Boris) Pickett came on the radio singing…THE MONSTER MASH. Groovy:))
Unlike the problems Paul & Marti Dahl from RV SANITY had our transition from Millenicom back to our previous service provider Verizon went smoothly. Kelly had less than a 10 minute wait before Verizon personnel answered her call. Took about 20 minutes with questions & answers going back & forth both ways. Minutes after Kelly hung up the phone we were all set up with a new Verizon account, all was well & it was internet as usual. With the multitude of problems we & just about everybody else seem to continually have with phone companies, internet providers, electric bills, insurance companies, garages, etc. etc. & etc. it is always a very welcome & appreciated ray of sunshine to have something go smoothly with no complications or screw ups for a change. It was our turn to have a lucky roll of the dice. Nice:))
AM GUESSING THIS LITTLE FELLOW IN OUR BACK YARD AS A HORNED LIZARD
RV West magazine says Arizona RV Parks are reporting the arrival of NORTHERN SNOW BIRDS two to four weeks earlier this year. Says the Farmers Almanac prediction of a cold hard winter could be driving the Birders south earlier than usual.
More helicopters west bound over the Date Creek Mountains today so I took a compass reading & estimated their direction of travel as west/northwest. Hauled out my Atlas & guestimated a straight line of travel & that took them in the direction of Lake Havasu & beyond into California’s Mojave Desert area & Death Valley. Drawing a line to the east/south east from their direction of travel I could not see any cities for hundreds of miles where these choppers might have departed from. Figured with the amount of fuel those things burn they would fly the shortest route possible between points A & B so would not likely be headed for the Chocolate Mountains east of Niland Ca. or the Barry M. Goldwater range northwest of Ajo Arizona.
Noticed this morning we have a new Blog Follower. We welcome MYSTIC2AWESOME to the workings of our inner lives here at the Bayfield Bunch. Things are a bit slow at the moment but hope you stick around until we can get the big RV wheels rolling again & head ourselves off on another journey somewhere soon.
AND THIS SAGUARO CACTUS IS RIGHT IN OUR FRONT YARD:))
A nice drop in temperatures headed our way accompanied by a 50% chance of rain this week-end. A welcome change as temperatures are predicted to drop into the low 70’s & high 60’s. A welcome break from upper 80’s & low 90’s. May only last a couple days before returning to mid 80’s but we’ll sure be glad for a couple cooler days:))
LOOKING EAST TO THE SOUTHERN END OF THE WEAVER MOUNTAINS
GROANER’S CORNER:(( "This house," said the real estate salesman, "has both its good points and its bad points. To show you I'm honest, I'm going to tell you about both. The disadvantages are that there is a chemical plant one block south and a slaughterhouse a block north." "What are the advantages?" inquired the prospective buyer. "The advantage is that you can always tell which direction the wind is blowing from."
A Sunday School teacher was telling the story of the Good Samaritan to her class of 4 & 5 year-olds. She was making it as vivid as possible to keep the children interested in her tale. At one point, she asked the class, "If you saw a person lying on the roadside all wounded and bleeding, what would you do?" A thoughtful little girl broke the hushed silence, "I think I'd throw up."
