A Little Work & A Little Play

We just love it out here in the desert. Beautiful sunrises & sunsets. Good friends, piece and quiet. Can life get any better? Tioga George left us the day after Thanksgiving.

Bob & Bud continued to work on Bud's system. It was mostly trial & error as this hasn't been done before. Every morning we would have coffee and conversation at their motorhome for an hour and every afternoon an hour or more of Happy Hour.

It wasn't all work. Sometimes we would go and play. We went to to geocache with friends, Jim & Barbara from Alliance, OH that we had met at the Roadrunner's Rally. We were teaching them.

We ran across this interesting car load. To say it smelled is an understatement. 

 Then out to dinner with more friends. Curt was invited by us & Jerry & Deborah were Jim & Barb's friend. Afterwards we went to the Yacht Club for dancing and listening.

Another day we went to Vicksburg for lunch with the Escapees at the Kofa Cafe. We met Jim & Barbara and went 4 wheeling and caching thru some beautiful mountains south of Salome. One cache took us to a gravesite near an old mine. According to the research there are no records as to who these people were. It is believed they were the miners & family members.

Another took us to Indian petroglyph's near Salome. 

The work continued on the solar most days. We had several days of cold & high wind which then they couldn't work. The last day on the project Bud fell off the ladder trying to carry too much up top. Nancy rushed him to the hospital in Parker and he had broken both heels. Bob finished the solar and when they came home he demonstrated that they went up & down. Then it was help Bud into the motorhome without using his feet. Not an easy chore.
