|A NICELY SHAPED PALO VERDE TREE|
|KINDA TURNED OUT TO BE A MORNING FOR THE SHADOW COWBOY|
|AND THIS MORNING WE FOUND THE HEART OF THE DESERT|
Somebody asked one time, 'do you leave your outside light on at night? My answer to that is 'no way Jose'. Like a bright light attracts bugs at night here only 30 miles from the Mexican border a bright light on an RV can also attract unwanted attention from people moving through the desert. As a rule these people will not bother anyone but no point lighting yourself up like a bright beacon just in case. When I step outside with Pheebs at night or in the pre-dawn hours I never turn an outside light on but do have a small powerful flashlight in my pocket and Pheebs wears a green lighted LED collar so I know exactly where she is at all times.

A roadside sign said, "Unlawful to Pass School Bus from Either Direction"I guess some people misunderstood that, because now it reads:"Unlawful to Pass Stopped School Bus from Either Direction".
