I always know when our temperatures are coming up by the number of Crickets chirping & Friday night we had quite a serenade of Crickets coming from a well vegetated area on a neighbor’s property across the road. So nice to hear that.
Kelly headed off to Wickenburg’s Safeway store for some groceries & needed cooking supplies. It was a good opportunity for me to get a few Motorhome chores done like dumping tanks & cleaning the front cab area as well as some windows.
Here’s a good post for all you folks contemplating your RV dreams & future travels. Maybe your thinking of going Full Time & if you are I suggest you read this post by the folks over at On The Road Of Retirement entitled ‘So You Want To Be A Full Timer....Some Advice’. Helpful & informative points for wannabe or soon to be Full Timers here.
Haven’t even been here at the house 2 weeks & already today I had my head buried in my Atlas thinking about when & where we can go for our first RV side trip. All the old familiar spots immediately come to mind like the Kofa Mountains, Borrego Springs, Ogilbe Road west of Yuma, Quartzsite, Sedona, California’s Mojave desert, etc. but nothing is really jumping out & grabbing me. All great places of course but I’m kinda feeling the need to experience & see some new scenery.
Three weeks ago tonight we we had supper at a Cracker Barrel in Benton Harbor Michigan & spent a quiet night in their parking lot. Turns out it was the only Cracker Barrel we stopped at all the way to the South-West. Already our first day on the road back then seems so very long ago…………..
GROANER’S CORNER:(( Did you ever wonder why there are no dead penguins on the ice in Antarctica? Where do they go? It is a known fact that the penguin is a very ritualistic bird which lives an extremely ordered and complex life. The penguin is very committed to its family and will mate for life, as well as maintain a form of compassionate contact with its offspring throughout its life. If a penguin is found dead on the ice surface, other members of the family and social circle have been known to dig holes in the nearby snow, using their vestigial wings and beaks, until the hole is deep enough for the dead bird to be rolled into, and buried. The male penguins then gather in a circle around the fresh grave and sing:
"Freeze a jolly good fellow. Freeze a jolly good fellow."
