Friday morning in Borrego Springs is the farmer's market at Christmas Circle. Of course I don't have much interest in the market itself with the big attraction for me being to get my feet moving on all that soft green grass and do the Borrego Shuffle. It was around 9:30 California time we were there and I was just a shuffling.
|ALWAYS LOVE TO SEE ALL THIS GREEN GRASS ON CHRISTMAS CIRCLE IN BORREGO SPRINGS|
|KELLY HEADS OFF TO CHECK OUT THE MARKET|

A drive up to the State Park where luckily we were on a day we didn't have to pay for being there. Kelly slipped into the beautiful visitor center for a schedule of Park events and a star chart while I walked Pheebs around the parking lot.

Kelly picked up a sack of grapefruits beside the Saguaro Cactus nursery we saw a couple days ago. A lot of orange orchards here but trees were bare so we think the oranges must have just been picked. A lot of grapefruits still on the trees.

GROANER'S CORNER:(( Some tourists in the Chicago Museum of Natural History are marveling at the dinosaur bones. One of them asks the guard, “Can you tell me how old the dinosaur bones are?” The guard replies, “They are three million, four years, and six months old.” “That's an awfully exact number,” says the tourist. “How do you know their age so precisely?” The guard answers, “Well, the dinosaur bones were three million years old when I started working here, and that was four and a half years ago!”

A gang of robbers broke into a lawyer's club by mistake. The old legal lions gave them a fight for their life and their money. The gang was very happy to escape.'It ain't so bad,' one crook noted. 'We got $25 between us.'The boss screamed: 'I warned you to stay clear of lawyers--we had $100 when we broke in!'
