|KELLY WATCHES PARKER ARIZONA'S OFF ROAD TRUCKS KICKING UP VOLUMES OF DESERT DUST BUT PHEEBS DOESN'T SEEM TOO INTERESTED|
|EARLIER THIS MORNING I SPOTTED TWO ATV TYPE RACERS TEARING ALONG THE OFF-ROAD RACE TRACK|
|GREAT AREA FOR MORNING WALKS|
|YES WE SURE DO LOVE OUR DESERT SOLITUDE|
|EASY DOES IT ON THAT ROCKY GROUND|
|HAD US A STAY AT HOME RELAXING MORNING, AFTERNOON, AND EVENING|
Winds really picked up this afternoon clearing out some of the clouds. A fair bit of dust in the air but at least the winds were not cold. Set up a couple binocular tri-pods and watched the off-road truck racers tearing up the desert a few miles away. Trucks were only tiny moving specs but easy to follow with volumes of dust being kicked up into the air behind them. With strong winds blowing the truck sounds were carried away with only a few faint engines sounds barely audible reaching us.

Kelly did get me onto a free version of Word Press this morning but oh my the patience needed to figure out the site construction is not on my side. I wrestled around trying to set up a basic site but even having done both Blogger and Live Writer myself years ago it was a struggle today trying to understand and fit the right pieces of the puzzle together. And it is my own damn impatience which fights me every step of the way.
As darkness descended late this afternoon rains began around 5 o'clock and from my recliner I could still see bouncing points of bright lights way out in the desert as the off-road truck racers still weaved and bobbed their way through desert. A hardy and dedicated bunch those fellows.

Toothy the day after Monday!----------------
At the airport for a business trip, I settled down to wait for the boarding announcement at Gate 35. Then I heard the voice on the public address system saying, "We apologize for the inconvenience, but Delta Flight 570 will board from Gate 41."So my family picked up our luggage and carried it over to Gate 41. Not ten minutes later the public address voice told us that Flight 570 would in fact be boarding from Gate 35.So, again, we gathered our carry-on luggage and returned to the original gate. Just as we were settling down, the public address voice spoke again: "Thank you for participating in Delta's physical fitness program.
