SOMEONE HAS A GREAT IMAGINATION ALONG DATE CREEK ROAD…SEEN WEDNESDAY
Felt to me like a Siberian wind this morning as Pheebs & stepped out of of the rig. Nothing compared to Northern Latitudes of course but for me it felt cold. Desktop thermometer said it was 42F so figure in wind chill factor with that & it’s cold enough for this guy.
ALSO ALONG DATE CREEK ROAD
A BIG ROCK SKULL & A TEETERY-TOTTERY ROCK
Nothing planned to day so I hung out in the rig reading again. Sunshine beaming in Big EEE’s windows made it toasty warm so it was a no brainer where I was going to be feeling most comfortable.
Try as I did I just could no longer slog my way through the mire & mud of my latest book, Party Of One: A Loner’s Manifesto. I finally bailed out. I think author Anneli Rufus lost her focus after a few chapters & the book for me just entangled itself in a network of gnarly vines leaving me in a confusing state of total disinterest. Downloaded Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking by author Susan Brown & am finding it a much better read……..so far.
JUST HANGING OUT IN THE RIG WITH MY BEST PAL
Kelly & Leslie returned to the Congress Depot (Rosebrook) to browse through all the really neat clothes & artsy antique furnishings & southwestern trappings. We bought some Mexican flavored furniture pieces here a couple winters ago when we were outfitting our house. Not your traditional big box fare at Rosebrook. How refreshingly different.
BY THE LOOKS OF THAT WHITE BAG I THINK BROWSING TURNED INTO BUYING
Leslie & Peter thoroughly enjoyed their tour of Wickenburg’s Desert Caballeros Western Museum Wednesday. Peter felt is was very professionally done & on par with any big city high end museums. They also enjoyed an eatery just around the corner from the museum called, Nana's Sandwich Saloon. We have heard good things about this place but Kelly & I haven’t been there yet.
GROANER’S CORNER:(( There were two evil brothers. They were rich, and used their money to keep their evil ways from the public eye. They even attended the same church, and appeared to be perfect Christians. Then, their pastor retired, and a new one was hired. Not only could the new pastor see right through the brothers' deception, but he also spoke well and true, and the church membership grew in numbers. A fund-raising campaign was started to build a new assembly. All of a sudden, one of the brothers died. The remaining brother sought out the new pastor the day before the funeral and handed him a check for the amount needed to finish paying for the new building. "I have only one condition," he said. "At the funeral, you must say my brother was a saint." The pastor gave his word, and deposited the check. The next day, at the funeral, the pastor did not hold back. "He was an evil man," he said. "He cheated on his wife and abused his family." After going on like this, he finally concluded, "but, compared to his brother, he was a saint."

What neat "rock" art! I'd like to see that! But my favorite photos are of Pheebs.... what a beauty!ReplyDelete
Highly intelligent looking dog you have there, Al. Even looks a little Regal.ReplyDelete
Oh, hope you like that book...kinda left me feeling ...like the first one you talk about! Anyway, I read a very interesting book.."Breakfast at Sally's", probably something ya might not like right off..but then maybe.ReplyDelete
I've been so glad you were back into reading again...I know how disappointing it is to have a book goReplyDelete
"downhill". Have had that happen many a time! Maybe this other book will be better. Hope so. Wouldn't want you to get turned off of reading. Wonderful pictures of Pheebs. Also a great one of Kelly and Leslie...Thanks for coming through with a post tonight.
Love the pictures of Phebes!ReplyDelete
We enjoyed that same museum in Wickenburg quite a few years ago and agree it is excellent.ReplyDelete
Nothing like the sun through the windows on a cold day.....ReplyDelete
I really think people should be arrested for defacing the rocks like that. Who gives them the right to paint nature! Its the NATURAL beauty of this place that makes it outstanding.....ReplyDelete
Ooohhhh...that sounds like a book I might want to read! I'm an introvert, like my dad. He didn't socialize much, but, BELIEVE ME, ya never wanted to play cards with that man! He would always win, but never say a word the whole game! He, he!ReplyDelete
Love the horse :-) Funny how we feel obligated to keep trudging through a book once we've started.....glad you stopped the torture and found another one to try. Having a huge bookstore in your hand is my favorite thing about the Kindle (it's also a little dangerous).ReplyDelete
Great pictures of Pheebs!! 42 is too cold for me too. You look very comfy in your reading chair. I use the same one for my reading and like you, when the author doesn't hold my interest any more, I toss it out. I used to force myself to finish any book I started but then I thought, too many books, life's too short why continue with something I don't find compelling, interesting or well written any more.ReplyDelete
One of the things I like the most about the RVer blogs I follow, is the love you folks have for the four legged members of your families.ReplyDelete
I did the same thing you did with the book Party of One, but I did finish the book you are reading now. That temperature of 42° sounds like the recent Indiana weather.ReplyDelete
Al, I uploaded Quiet and began reading it yesterday morning and nearly was late for work! Great book! Thank you for recommending it.ReplyDelete
