Sun & cloud mixed with blustery afternoon winds made for a cool day when the sun was out & a cold day when it wasn’t. Fellow RVing friend Renee over at North Ranch emailed us earlier about a cactus she didn’t want & would we like it. Sure did so we were off over to North Ranch at 9:30. Had us a visit with Renee & husband Dave before digging up the cactus & loading it into the Jeep. Nice folks these two. While there we saw Nina & Paul just rolling out for Quartzsite. We waved but they didn’t see us.
THE WHEELING IT CREW HEADING OUT THIS MORNING
I’LL GET THIS CACTUS FELLOW PLANTED IN THE MORNING
Leaving Renee & Dave’s we cruised around North Ranch looking for Janna & Mike’s new digs passing Jim & Ellie Meachams place. Didn’t see a vehicle at Mike & Pat McFalls but we did spot Janna & Mikes yellow Jeep hiding behind their garage further down the street so pulled in & knocked on the door. They were both up to their ears in house renovations & were hard at it but said they needed a break from the days activities anyway so gave us a house tour. Sure have a nice place there for sure & it’s been made even nicer since Mike put in some big bright windows & knocked out some interior walls. We had us a sit down outside & got caught up on everything. Janna’s hoping to have her kitchen all put back together by Thanksgiving & in the meantime they are living in their Motorhome parked behind the house.

We were back home by 1 o’clock & I decided I’d plant the new cactus Wednesday morning when I’m hoping it will be warmer. With Remembrance Day coming up there has been a lot of war history on TV & I always like to watch that every year so my afternoon was spent inside except for a short walk around outside to grab me a few photos for tonight’s post.
THE NORTHWEST CORNER OF OUR PROPERTY
Joe & Betty from Joe & Betty's Adventures just received some devastating medical news & life has suddenly thrown them a nasty curve. It is one of those things that can happen to any one of us at any time. Our thoughts are with Joe & Betty as they make their way through these difficulties.
THESE ARE MY WORKING PILES OF EARTH & COLORED GRAVEL
Got so cold in the house today we had to finally turn on our 2 baseboard mounted $megawatt$ gobbling space heaters but oh my did that warmth ever feel good. Even Hoppy had his ear muffs on Russ:)) Looks like we are in for sunny skies & warmer temps Wednesday with each coming day edging us up closer to the low 70’s.
OUR FRONT CACTUS GARDEN IS A SLOW GROWING WORK IN PROGRESS

Nice that you got out and about , bring and sunny here but very windy.ReplyDelete
The sunshine though is wonderful
Glad you got over to see Janna and Mike's new place - love the pics she's been posting on her blog! Did I miss a post where you've decided not to sell the little place, or are you just relaxing for a few weeks before making that move? Wonderful to see how green it is there.ReplyDelete
Can't believe we missed you rollin' out of Escapees, but I guess we were "pedal to the metal" at that point LOL. Glad you got to see Janna & Mike's place. I was amazed at how much work they've already done. I'm sure w/ the Cowboy's handiness it's going to be amazing by the time it's finished.ReplyDelete
