MORNING IN OUR NEIGHBORS JOSHUA TREE GARDEN
As nice as it was to spend 5 days in the rig it was just as nice moving my things back into the house late Saturday morning & resuming my old routines. Guess you could say I always look forward to something different but also enjoy my same-same routines as well. Well, for awhile anyway.
After a week of company wrapped up with our visit to Blogger-Fest I think we’ll keep a pretty low profile now for awhile & just kind of putter around the old home front for a bit. Better give it a few days before I bring up the topic of heading off to California’s Mojave's National Preserve soon.
TIS THE TIME OF YEAR FOR NEST BUILDING HERE IN OUR LITTLE SLICE OF ARIZONA
Think it was around noon when John (Sarge) & Jackie dropped around to see how we’re doing so we sat ourselves up on the porch for a spell out of the Sun. Wasn’t long & we saw a familiar yellow Jeep go by then return a short time later. It was Janna, Mike, & Emmi stopping by. They hadn’t met John & Jackie before. Had ourselves a rousing chat before John & Jackie had to head on back home. Janna & Mike stayed awhile longer & Mike volunteered to install our new KC Fog Lights on the Jeep. Janna & Mike slipped on home for lunch & Mike later returned with some tools. Didn’t take him long to remove the old fogs & hook up the new fogs. And they worked too. We had also bought a new Oxygenic shower head for the RV & Mike was able to install that for us as well. Kelly gets a little nervous if she knows I’m going to try & do things like that so not wanting to up her stress levels it is always best I just step aside & let someone far more experienced & competent do those kinds of things. Generally turns out to be one of my better decisions as a rule.
THANKS MIKE MUCH APPRECIATED:))
It was after 11 before I finally crawled into bed Saturday night. Editing about 60 photos, looking up links, & cross checking photos for identification took up a lot of time. After talking to Kelly this morning with a clearer head on my shoulders I was able to make a few changes & correct some info. Below is my re-freshed memory update to Saturday’s Blogger-Fest. Oh & by the way, I did get myself a little gussied up for Saturday’s event. Left my baggy butt jeans at home, slipped into a pair of dress pants I hadn’t worn since early April of 2013, & wore my very much most best favorite Thrift Store shirt I found last month in Borrego Springs. Groovy:))
A few of these photos are repeats because I didn’t have an ID on them Saturday night.
<<< This is Betty & Joe from JOE & BETTY'S ADVENTURES sitting behind Doug & Yuma . I don’t have a photo for the Heyduke folks at On The Road Of Retirement but we met these 2 fine people as well. Chatted with fellow dog lovers Kelly & Angela from RV Life Is Good for a bit & it’s always nice to meet someone thinking as we do about our treasured pets. My ears did catch a side comment from someone suggesting I put too many photos of Pheebs in my posts. Well of course I do….wouldn’t you:)) Another fellow had a question about what resolution I use for my photos & of course I didn’t know. That was kinda embarrassing for me.

GROANER’S CORNER:(( Howard came home from work one evening and there was his wife Miriam in the kitchen crying out loud.
"What's the matter, darling?" he asked her.
"I just don't know what to do," said Miriam. "Because we were eating in for a change, I cooked us a special dinner - but the dog has just eaten it."
"Don't worry," said Howard, "I'll get us another dog."
