Every time I see those, I want to paint them. (Yeah, right! Like that would be easy, yeah?!) They are such complex, fascinating constructions & unexpected colors. Thanks for whetting my appetite again ... I think!


Ha!

The moon's gone a tad off full, but is still a silent show-stopper over the dark desert if you're looking. I took a chair out to the desert edge tonight, watching stars, avoiding as much ambient light as I could, till my eyes adjusted.

The moon rewarded me.

Any further into the desert felt unsafe in the dark. Police or border patrol spent 10 or 15 minutes out there sweeping the terrain w/ searchlights. My fear was they'd destroy the nightsight I had spent 20 minutes or so allowing to develop.

Groundless concern. Nor did they come to see what a gray-haired old lady was doing, sitting there in a lawn chair that says "Home is where you park it".

I rest my case.

Good morning desert moon mutants and mutants everywhere!

We're off to have CR-V Mutant serviced, seek the flooring and fridge and other fun stuff. Hopefully all will come easily today...

On another note - Annie went to the craft show at the park yesterday with Lisa (our friends from Sacramento). They had a good time but Lisa sprung the news on us... it's too hot and they're going home today. Oh the humanity. We've been so busy we haven't had much time to visit, thinking they would be here thru the 10th of the month.

I'm trying to convince them to sign up for the mooning. We'll see.... I sure hope so cause they are so fun!

Couldn't resist. FYI: i have the VIP-722 that we take with us. I do not have an antenna on the roof for satellite reception. I purchased a Winegard Carry Out antenna back in 2008 and use it. I am seriously considering installing the Winegard Trav'ler. Why? Because with the open faced antenna I would have the full functionality of the VIP-722. With the Carry Out, like any dome antenna, Only one satellite at a time and Dish uses 3 satellites. If one has Direct TV a dome will not get HD channels.

I'm going to look into the [url\https://rfmogul.com/]R F Mogul[/url] antenna system. it is about 36 pounds lighter than other systems.

If one uses the 211K or Z then I understand that the Winegard Anser antenna gets all Dish Network stations off of satellite 61.5. That may be another option.

Barb and Sue and anyone interested

Hopefully this will work.

Denise and I bought one and love it.

https://www.aliexpress.com/item/H96-...6-0d73d0b7da05

They had a special promotion that included a keyboard when we bought.

We will try it when we go camping up at Cluxewe and let everyone know what results we get.

It took 31 days from order to delivery and that's pretty good for ground shipping from China.

Thanks Sue! You'd think it would be easy - but so many decisions. Decisions. Decisions.

Match the tile to the cabinets - 1 texture color - match the carpet to tile and the the sofa... oh the humanity! And the backsplash... oh no...

You kinda remind me of an old Italian immigrant I met moons ago in Sault Ste Marie. (Italian capital of Northern Ontario)

He wanted a new home built but his greatest desire was to have a Halo Statue.

So the builder pondered (mutant eh?) the situation and for the life of him he couldn't figure out what a Halo Statue was or what it did.

Being the old Italian was very religious the builder went to see the monsignor of the local church and asked him. Well the old monsignor told him that the old man and his wife had an inordinate devotion to the Virgin Mother Mary so it must have been something to do with that. So the builder designed a beautiful little grotto in the hallway wall close to the front entrance and after everything was drywalled, wired and painted he had beautiful decorative lighting installed in the grotto and put in a marvelous, and very expensive, statue of the Virgin Mary.
So when the old couple came to look at the finished house and inquired as to their halo Statue the builder proudly lead them to the entrance hallway and showed them the grotto. The old man looked at it and said, "This is a very nice touch but where's my Halo Statue?"

The builder went ballistic after all this added expense and yelled to the old man, "What in hell is a halo Statue, even your monsignor doesn't know what that is?"

The old Italian looked at the builder quite indignantly and said "You knoe, ittsa sit onna da table and when it goes Bring bring bring you picka up and say 'Halo Statue?"

Lovely as usual. You have a talent for painting that is a gift from our maker. I could spend 20 years practicing and wouldn't come close to painted something that looks natural.

Ohms for you and Larry for strength, good health, and patience (for the process to be completed). We hope that Friday bears good tidings for you and Larry.

What talents do I have, that I could demonstrate, that would earn me a free cruise? Careful muteys . . . . be nice . . . don't pile on.
