ONE NIGHT AFTER LAST WEEK’S CHRISTMAS FULL MOON
How nice to step outside this morning into balmy 45F temps instead of the 30 & 35F stuff we were having last week. Looks like we might be in the high 60’s by Sunday then the bottom of the barrels falls out for all of next week. Temperatures drop & it looks like rain, rain, & more rain headed our way.
NO THAT IS NOT A PREDATOR SWOOPING IN JUST ANOTHER LITTLE SPARROW
Pheebs & I took ourselves for a drive down to McDonald’s in Wickenburg & picked up a few supplies at the drive-thru. From there our travels took us up highway 93 aways then out into the desert for a walk. Nothing too exciting but at least we got out & went somewhere. We were back home before noon.

THERE IS ALWAYS SOMETHING GOING ON HERE EVERY TIME WE DRIVE BY
I’m afraid we didn’t do anything much different from the last bunch of afternoons. A few more bird photos & some reading. I stretched out in my gravity chair & soaked up some warm Arizona Sun while being serenaded once again by our melodious back yard bird choir. Maybe this first new day of the year will set the pace for the rest of the days of this new year. Well that might be fine for some folks but it sure doesn’t give a daily Blogger like myself much to write about each day.
New Year’s Eve we watched a DVD Kelly had picked up at the Library called GRAVITY starring Sandra Bullock & George Clooney. Definitely a movie to be seen on a big screen with big sound for sure. Best part of the movie was the great special effects & I wonder if there is an Imax version of it. Of course my favorite all time space movie is 2001: A Space Odessy & what I liked about that movie so much was it’s un-Hollywoody approach. Very realistic & not over dramatized in the usual Hollywood fashion. I would be content to just sit & watch ‘Gravity’ in a big Imax theater…..with no dialogue.
PHEEBS & I DID COME ACROSS ANOTHER CATTLE WATERING HOLE (TANK) WE HAD NEVER SEEN BEFORE
WE HADN’T SEEN THIS NEARBY APIARY BEFORE EITHER

Looking back one year ago today I see we were boon-docked on Ogilby Road west of Yuma & our Bayfield friends Diane & Harry (STORMRUNNER RV SALES & SERVICE) drove out to see us. No not from Bayfield but from Yuma where they were staying for a bit.
