PHEEBS ISN’T QUITE SURE WHO THAT IS HEADED OUR WAY
Out for a short walk in the late afternoon brisk air I saw up ahead Pheebs had stopped & was staring intently down our Park’s pine tree trail. As I came around a bend I saw Pheebs best Pal Dexter had his Dad out for a walk too & they were headed our way. Dexter & Pheebs hadn’t seen each other since last October sometime & it took them a bit of intense looking from afar for about 20 seconds to recognize & remember each other. But boy when they did Pheebs took off. Tonight’s photos are of those 2 best Pals meeting once again.
SOON AS I SAID TO PHEEBS ‘GO GET DEXTER’ SHE TOOK OFF & IN THIS SHOT SHE IS AIRBORNE STREAKING DOWN THE PATH LIKE A BULLET
DEXTER’S DAD GERALD QUICKLY LETS DEXTER OFF HIS LEASH AS PHEEBE BARRELS TOWARDS THEM AT ABOUT 300 MPH
HERE PHEEBS & DEXTER BOTH OFF THE GROUND MEET IN MID AIR
Our Sunday night rain storm rolled in around 11 bringing a series of thunder boomers with a couple of them strong enough to rattle our windows. A lightning bolt struck the Bayfield sewage pump station knocking out it’s pump forcing all Bayfield flushers to curtail their flushings as much as possible today until the pump is repaired. Meanwhile we heard trucks have been hauling away excess waste. Excess waste to where would be my question. Yikes!! We here outside of Bayfield were not affected by this unfortunate lightning strike & merrily flushed our way through the day unimpeded.
TWO BEST PALS HAVING A LONG AWAITED BEST PALS ROMP
Rained all morning which turned to wet snow for awhile as temperatures hovered just above the freezing mark. Gusting high winds made it feel even colder so most of our day was spent inside reading, watching TV, etc. Some will ask, 'are you wishing you hadn't come home so soon'? My answer to that is an emphatic 'no not at all'. Happy to be here despite our temporary spate of grumbly weather. As mentioned in a few of my posts a week or two ago it was that time of year for us to change locations again. We were both stressed out over the whole 'house sale' thing & needed to remove ourselves from the situation for awhile. Heading back home to Canada came at a perfect time. We are both feeling soooooooo much better at the moment, especially Kelly. Also, the weather was getting hotter by the day in Arizona & neither Kelly or I are fans of hot weather so we were glad we left when we did. No regrets on being back in good old Canada:))
SPOTTED ONE LONE GOOSE ON THE POND & BELOW IS A REALLY WEIRD LOOKING PINE CONE & I’VE NEVER SEEN ONE THAT COLOR OR SIZE HERE IN THE PARK BEFORE
A MORNING PHOTO SHOWS OUR RAIN TURNING TO SNOW BUT NOTHING ACCUMULATED ON THE GROUND & IT ONLY LASTED ABOUT 10 MINUTES
We have been to Slab City California probably half a dozen times or more over our RVing years & have always found it an interesting place. Fellow RV Blogger Contessa sent us a link to her friends blog where her friend Suzanne talks about her 4 day stay at the Slabs with a stop at Salvation Mountain. Thought her post was well written & well photographed. Suzanne’s blog is entitled Take To The Highway & her Slab City post is entitled The Last Free Place. From here on in you can find Suzanne’s posts on my sidebar:))
HAPPY TO SAY OUR SKIES ARE CLEARING TONIGHT & AS I TYPE THIS LOOKING OUT OUR SUNROOM WINDOW I SEE EVENING SUNSHINE POURING THROUGH OUR PARK’S PINE TREES BEYOND OUR NEIGHBOR MONICA’S HOUSE:))
GROANER'S CORNER:(( A young Technician and his General Manager board a train headed through the mountains on its way to Wichita. They can find no place to sit except for two seats right across the aisle from a young woman and her grandmother. After a while, it is obvious that the young woman and the young tech are interested in each other, because they are giving each other looks. Soon the train passes into a tunnel and it is pitch black. There is a sound of a kiss followed by the sound of a slap. When the train emerges from the tunnel, the four sit there without saying a word. The grandmother is thinking to herself, "It was very brash for that young man to kiss my granddaughter, but I'm glad she slapped him."The General manager is sitting there thinking, "I didn't know the young tech was brave enough to kiss the girl, but I sure wish she hadn't missed him when she slapped and hit me!" The young woman was sitting and thinking, "I'm glad the guy kissed me, but I wish my grandmother had not slapped him!" The young tech sat there with a satisfied smile on his face. He thought to himself, "Life is good. How often does a guy have the chance to kiss a beautiful girl and slap his General manager all at the same time!"
