|THE EYES OF OLD SOL PEER RIGHT INTO OUR COACH THIS MORNING|
|THIS IS WHAT BREAKFAST LOOKS LIKE AT OUR HOUSE|
|FLOCKS OF SAND HILL CRANES|
WE HEAD OUT ON A NICE MORNING WALK
|DRESSED WARM TO CATCH A FEW MORNING RAYS|
|WE SOON SET OFF IN THE JEEP TO DO A BIT OF EXPLORING|
|NOT SURE IF THOSE ARE GEESE, SWANS, OR MAYBE EGRETS OR PELICANS|
From there we followed a dirt road running south right alongside the Colorado River west of us. Always nice to see water out here in these dry desert areas of the Southwest. I was surprised at how swift the Colorado was running and if one were to fall in one would be swept away right quick.
|LOOKING SOUTH ALONG THE COLORADO RIVER|
Hadn't gone far when we were surprised by a number of really swanky-doo houses along the far bank. Sure never expected to see anything like that out here in this dry dusty land. Can you say 'Palm Trees'. Talking to a Park Ranger she said she has never seen people over there around those million dollar properties. Said when the house owners do come it is in the summer months. And they bring their boats.
|WE WERE SURPRISED TO SEE THIS RITZY COMMUNITY ACROSS THE RIVER|
|WONDER IF MORE HOUSING IS DUE TO GO IN ALONG THE RIVER|
|LOOING NORTH ALONG THE COLORADO RIVER WE NOTICED HOW BLUE IT LOOKED|
|EVENING'S WARM GLOW ENDS ANOTHER DAY|
|NIGHT NIGHT OLD SOL SEE YOU IN THE MORNING|
GROANER'S CORNER:(( The chief of staff of the US Air Force decided that he would personally intervene in the recruiting crisis affecting all of our armed services. So, he directed that a nearby Air Force base be opened and that all eligible young men and women be invited. As he and his staff were standing near a brand new F-15 Fighter, a pair of twin brothers who looked like they had just stepped off a Marine Corps recruiting poster walked up to them. The chief of staff stuck out his hand and introduced himself. He looked at the first young man and asked, "Son, what skills can you bring to the Air Force? "The young man looks at him and says, "I'm a pilot!" The general gets all excited, turns to his aide and says, "Get him in today, all the paper work done, everything, do it!" The aide hustles the young man off. The general looks at the second young man and asked, "What skills to you bring to the Air Force?" The young man says, "I chop wood!" "Son," the general replies, "we don't need wood choppers in the Air Force, what do you know how to do?" "I chop wood!" "Young man," huffs the general, "you are not listening to me, we don't need wood choppers, this is the 20th century!" "Well," the young man says, "you hired my brother!" "Of course we did," says the general, "he's a pilot!" The young man rolls his eyes and says, "Dang it, I have to chop it before he can pile it!"-------------------------------------
