OUR VERY OWN PRECIOUS LITTLE COUCH POTATO
Pheebs and I piled into the Motorhome about 7:30 this morning and drove ourselves down to Wickenburg’s Wickenburg Tire. Being sensitive about tires now I wanted the professional tire fellas to look over our tires and check all the pressures. All 6 tires checked out perfectly so we are good to do a bit of traveling soon.
AT ‘WICKENBURG TIRE’ THIS MORNING
PHEEBS NAVIGATES THE WAY HOME AND BELOW IS HER FAVORITE PLACE TO RIDE IN THE MOTORHOME
In case anyone has been wondering we have not given up on a tire monitoring system and as a matter of fact Kelly has spent a fair bit of time on the phone this past week with questions to some of the major tire monitoring manufacturers. For 2 months now we have been bouncing around from one manufacturer to another trying to decide which system to get. I think we may be getting it narrowed down finally.
I THINK THERE’S BEEN A BIT OF MONKEY BUSINESS GOING ON WITH OUR ROAD CREW THESE PAST FEW DAYS
I did a load of laundry this morning while Kelly headed into Wickenburg to browse all her favorite stores. Browsing for anything at anytime is not a favorite pastime of mine so Pheebs and I quite happily stayed home. Well Okay so we browsed through the fridge a couple times.
A large cloud cover moved in over the land this afternoon and weather folks are predicting a nasty Friday coming up for us. Temps will drop from our near 70’s to the high 50’s. An 80% chance of rain predicted for Friday afternoon. Not nice but a whole heck of a lot better than back home in Bayfield. Sub freezing temperatures with heavy snow and road closures. We think the power may have been off in our area this morning as well. Unpredictable bad weather is one of the main reasons we always prefer to head south well before there’s any chance of trouble plus why hang around up north any longer than we have to when we know of the many pleasures and adventures awaiting us here in the great American Southwest. A FEW REMAINING CONGRESS CEMETERY PHOTOS TONIGHT
SOME OF THE GRAVES ARE SMALL SUGGESTING CHILDREN AND I HAVE A FEELING MANY GRAVES MARKINGS IN THIS CEMETERY HAVE BEEN LOST TO THE TIMELESS DESERT WINDS AND RAINS
Wonder how many people knew James Montgomery “Jimmy” Doohan was born to Irish immigrants in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. Better known as Scotty on the original Star Trek Jimmy Doohan was not only born in Canada but was schooled in Canada attending the Sarnia Collegiate Institute in Ontario. He also served with the Canadian Army through World War 2, landed on Juno beach on D-Day and was accidentally shot 7 times by a fellow Canadian soldier. He has had an interesting life and you can read about it here at Jimmy (Scotty) Doohan.
If our house sale is successful we’re not really sure where we are headed once we leave Congress. We have a few ideas but we’ll just wait and see how we are feeling, which way the wind is blowing and where the sun is shining warmest. One thing is for sure though and that is wherever we go we will again seek out the quietest places free from people, people pressure, and people noises. We will resume our old boon-docking ways from a few years back where privacy, peace and quiet was always one of our top priorities. In fact that even becomes more important to us now than ever before. No visitors and no visiting as we take time to transition back into our preferred hermit like boon-docking lifestyle we so loved for our first 6 Snow Bird years on the road. We are ‘both’ so very much looking forward to yet another welcome change in our seemingly ever changing lives……………………..
GROANER’S CORNER:(( A linguistics professor was lecturing to his class one day. "In English," he said, "a double negative forms a positive. In some languages though, such as Russian, a double negative is still a negative." "However," he pointed out, "there is no language wherein a double positive can form a negative." A voice from the back of the room piped up, "Yeah. Right."
Bob: "I just got a new set of golf clubs for my wife." Jim: "Great trade!"
A man walks into a piano store and says, "I would like to buy a hairy piano." Perplexed, the sales clerk asked, "Why do you want a hairy piano?!" Nonchalantly, the customer responded, "Well, the last piano store only had Baldwins."
