TONIGHT’S TWILIGHT GLOW AS SEEN FROM MY BEDROOM WINDOW
By the time I remembered I still had the whole driver’s side of the rig to wash it was almost too late. A quick glance at the Eastern horizon told me the Sun was nearing the horizon & I had better pull the lead out & get rolling with my coach wash. I was about half done when old Sol popped up over the Weaver Mountains & cast his heated solar rays right at me. Luckily I finished up before that big ball of fire rose too high & roasted me on the spot.
THE BIG EEE’S ALL SHINY AGAIN & I HAD TO DO A LOT OF PALO VERDE TREE TRIMMING ON THE LEFT SO WE COULD GET THE LIVING ROOM SLIDE OUT
Kelly worked on a big interior rig clean-up as I got myself to work on about a 101 other little jobs around the property. I am fortunate to have something to do. Keeps me from getting bored. Sitting around watching TV doesn’t work for me. Like to keep myself physically active with little projects here & there. And I have lots of them for the next little while too.
SPENCER & FROGGI HAVE TAKEN UP THEIR POSTS AS YARD SECURITY
MAYBE TOMORROW I’LL GET ‘CACTUS MAN’ BACK UP ON HIS FEET & COULD THAT BE A SMALL SCORPION AT RIGHT
Set up the Critter Cam Wednesday night but no images were captured. Just me walking in front of the camera. We haven’t heard anything under the house & have not smelled anything Skunky so far. There is a chance that whatever made that hole has moved on. I have shoveled some dirt into the hole today to see if anything is disturbed in the morning.
FOUND A FEW PHOTOS IN MY NIKON D3100 I HAD FORGOT ABOUT…ABOVE IS A CLOSE UP LOOK AT BLUFF UTAH’S TWIN PEAKS
THIS DEER FAMILY BLEW THROUGH A STOP SIGN IN MONTICELLO UTAH
And this in our Shout Box……‘With millenacom you get what you pay for. Their reception is usally terrible’. Yes we do get what we pay for & in this case it is cheaper than Verizon & the reception is ‘exactly’ the same. When we first bought our house we had Verizon & had reception problems right from the get-go. When it boils right down to it our location is the biggest problem. I remember Kelly on the phone with Verizon asking the same questions she had for Millenicom a few days ago. Two different companies but the same problem…………………
“Hey the Canadians are back’ is what we heard from both Jerry & Judy as we walked into the Congress Depot this morning. Nice folks in there & Judy make’s just the best Pizzas. Owners Judy & Jerry are busy working on expansions to their business. A busy place indeed. We had dropped in to pick up some birdseed but they don’t carry it anymore. We are off to Wickenburg first thing in the morning for groceries so will pick up some seed at TSC. I’ll have the feeders loaded by late morning & hopefully our feathered friends will soon return for another winter season of fast flying photos. Someone asked about photographing the night sky’s Milky Way. Time lapse photography is something I have little experience with but nothing’s impossible I guess & the question did send me to my camera manual to check a few things out.
PUT THE RIG’S AWNING DOWN THIS MORNING IN CASE IT MIGHT HAVE BEEN WET FROM OUR TRAVELS
Made it till noon before having to retreat inside out of the heat. But not before trimming part of that Palo Verde tree touching our roof, more cleaning in the shed, & awning out on the rig in case it was wet from last week’s traveling rains. It wasn’t. We picked up our mail at the Congress Post Office & stopped at the B&B Congress garage. Jeepers will have new headlights installed Friday & we have a twice recommended fellow coming out to the house next Tuesday to put a new windshield in little Jeepers. Have also ordered caps for the broken fog lights. We decided ‘not’ to put these repairs through insurance. Things are much cheaper here in the States so we’ll just absorb the cost. But I am definitely going to see if I can take that big single mud flap off the back of the rig. I have a feeling it contributed to the damage somehow because we have been up & down gravel roads before while boondocking in our other RV’s & never had a scratch on either our Santa Fe or Jeep. I think someone commented about seeing people on an Alaska trip taking those big wide mud guards off their vehicles for that very reason. And yes it makes sense those guards would catch a lot of air & hamper fuel consumption as some have suggested.
HAPPY TO SEE MY PLANTED CACTI GROWING
Things are moving right along. It was just a short week ago today when we were feeling so blue.
Kelly finished cleaning the rig’s interior so the Big EEE’s set for her next trip but we’ll have to wait for the temperatures to drop before that happens. Our first venture will likely be to Phoenix for the inverter fix first. After that we’ll be pulling some plans & destinations together for this winter’s boondocking adventures. Some old familiar places plus some some new ones as well.
SUNSET TONIGHT AS SEEN FROM MY BATHROOM WINDOW
GROANER’S CORNER:(( The vet prescribed daily tablets for our geriatric cat and after several battles my husband devised a way to give her the medication. It involved wrapping the cat in a towel, trapping her between his knees, forcing her mouth open and then positioning the pill on the back of her tongue. He was proud of his resourcefulness until one hectic session when he lost control of both cat and medicine. The cat leaped out of his grasp & chased the pill which had rolled across the floor………grabbed it & ate it.
