Here’s one of the clothesline poles. The other is similar but not exact. I bought the PVC joints at the habitat for humanity restore for $.50 each and the pipe I’d had for years. It was a cheap and fun project. In Arizona the clothes at one end of the line are already dry before you get around to hanging the rest up.

And maybe a touch of shade, unless of course it's in the cooler part of the year

Barb, that is a great looking Winter home. Congratulations and thanks to Bob.

I noticed it had high lines and low lines. Are the low lines for you and Irene??

Har har! Nevah!

So, prolly not Shipsahoozits. Too soon, too much risk. You know you can always swing by here. Hookups available & social distancing easy. (Same for all Mutants.)

Aside from lacking all those Mutants to schmooze with, our hill is as close to Nirvana as I'm likely to get any time soon. Except for no mountains, no ocean, no first growth forest ....

Here's what I'm sitting beside in the shade on the south deck. Click image for larger version

Sue, the sunset shot through the shovel handle is an interesting and clever framing.


Barb, from the point of view from someone who spent 40 years in the architectural profession, Connie comes off as very Industrial looking, a minimalistic "less is more" approach. The graffiti suggestion mentioned earlier would turn it more "urban". The painted cactus (and //or other southwestern symbols) would give it that "trading post" appearence. If you wanted it to look more "homey", you could clad the north side with fiber cement lap siding and add a window flower box for that "cozy bungalow" feeling. The "off the grid" movement seems to be growing and you're right there with it. Parking Homer on the South side would help shade Connie some as would a pipe and fabric sunshade (would shade Homer too, you could store the fabric when you are not there).

What happened to the bread?

I fired up Homer today after 7 1/2 months and left Dateland. I drove Bob's pickup a few times, but for the most part I drove tiny Smarty (8’ 8” long) exclusively. Homer is 24’ long. It was a bit of a relearning experience to maneuver him around, plus going from practically zero traffic to driving thru Phoenix.

Anyway, when I finally had gotten gas and propane filled it was time for lunch. I discovered the microwave, aka bread box, door slightly ajar so I thought I’d find the bread on the floor. But it wasn’t! Even the glass tray was missing from the microwave. I figured it was under the stuff I had stacked in the kitchen area and everywhere But it wasn’t! Even the glass tray was missing from the microwave. I looked everywhere and couldn’t find the bread or the microwave tray.

I didn’t walk away from Homer at any time, so nobody could have taken those things. HUH????? Finally, I open the dishwasher drawer that sits just below the microwave and found the bread and the glass tray sitting on top of it.

When Sena was around I always had to keep a stick stuck in the handles of the dishwasher drawer and in the drawer below it to keep her from emptying it. Ok, so I forgot to secure the dishwasher drawer before we left Dateland and when the microwave door opened during a left turn the dishwasher drawer opened as well and the bread and dish fell end of the dishwasher but it closed before I parked. Mystery solved.

Or the angel Sena moved it... did you chuckle? I would have sat down and cried.... hugs...
