It is indeed Ms. Bucket, although she insisted it be pronounced Bouquet.

Inquiring minds want to know -- is the rig count high enough to make it a GC? It only takes 10!

IF Ann feels better, we want to attend... Hope to see you then... If not, I still want to get to Seattle this year... So, one place or the other, will try to catch up with you...

If Earlene were to post I know she would say that she is "in common" with you also.

It was pair but couldn't catch em together. One or the other hopped up onto the Hummer across the way, and then to the roof of the park model across the street for a rest.

Sometimes hard to tell if they are showing their wares or hunting. Oops! Both are the same.

The day of sinus reckoning is upon me... I am looking forward to feeling better. I think my sinuses froze up in Tucson. Maybe this guy can get them to thaw out! One of my memories of FESWGC will always be how cold it was when lighting the smoker. I got it set up and ready to go but was too cold to light it!! Had to go in and warm up first. Lol. But it was some darn good pulled pork in the end! And chicken. And sausage. And Hatch green chiles... if I get my energy back there may be a Cocopah smoke out with neighbors before we head out. The folks here are really great. Good neighbors all around. Too bad I've been on anticiotics. Haven't been able to happy hour with them. :-(

Not to mention how expensive they are, I've heard upwards of 5k or more and over 20k if you get a pair that have mated (e.g., they became partners for life).



Here's a pic of one...

Okay, so somebody clue me a little further, plz! What's Mac, then? And what are Elizabeth's two?

I hate bein ignorant! 😕

Sounds like a plan, Richard. I hope Ann is absorbing the ohms properly and you can join us in April. Seattle isn't easy a very RV friendly place, but with your Class B it's much easier.

Mac is a Scarlett Macaw (there are many types of macaws). Elizabeths' larger bird is a Blue and Gold Macaw (I'm sure there's another name for them) and the little one, well, that one stumps me. Either some type of amazon (green) or some other exotic breed. Looks really pretty and I wonder if it talks.

Barb, I took your gracious gift to the Mesa Flea Market this morning. Stayed for 3 hours and it worked flawlessly. I didn't run over a single person. There were a few that I was tempted to hit intentionally but I refrained.

Tomorrow our park has a patio sale in the morning. I plan on another test run without recharging the batteries. Just to see if my weight quotient lowers the running time very much. Should make the total distance about 3 1/2 to 4 miles.

BTW, it packed neatly in the back of the HHR. Will have gobs of room in our new Enclave. Thanks again. It made the mile trek this morning doable and painless.
