|GLAD TO BE BACK AT OUR FAVORITE LEGION SPOT|
It's funny how we, the steadfast out in the desert Boondockers have taken a liking to this spot here at the Borrego Springs Legion. Maybe it's the closeness of trees we like and at least we have a Verizon signal here although not a strong one. We seem to like the closeness to town better too. Our priorities are changing a bit I guess.
With it being the week-end there were more people in town but it certainly isn't crowded or congested. That may come in a few weeks when the 'big desert flower bloom' takes place here in the Borrego Valley drawing thousand upon thousands of people to Borrego Springs. We will make sure we are long gone by that time but do plan to slip out this coming week after all the week-enders have gone home and see if we can find us a few early desert flower blooms here and there.
Weather is sunny and with each coming day becomes warmer. Predicted to be around 80F by the end of the week. With the annual Peg Leg Smith Liars Contest due to draw a lot of noisy people again at the Legion next week-end we will have to be out of here Friday morning for sure.

* Lose weight quickly by eating raw pork and rancid tuna. I found that the subsequent food poisoning and diarrhea enabled me to lose 12 pounds in only 2 days.
* Save on booze by drinking cold tea instead of whiskey. The following morning you can create the effects of hangover by drinking a thimble full of dish washing liquid and banging your head repeatedly on the sidewalk.
*Avoid parking tickets by leaving your windshield wipers turned to high whenever you leave your car parked illegally.

The new army recruit was given guard duty at 2 a.m. He did his best for a while, but at about 4 a.m. he fell asleep. He awakened to find the officer of the day standing before him. Remembering the heavy penalty for being asleep on guard duty, this smart young man kept his head bowed for another moment and looked upward and reverently said, 'Amen'.
