Itís a womanís prerogative to change her mind, right? At least thatís what Iíve always heard. Last night I was laying in bed trying to decide where to go next and nothing really excited me. So this morning I decided that I could either spend money on gasoline or a really good swamp cooler for Connie. Connie won.

So tonight we are headed south again, back to Dateland. We spent a lovely night in the forest where it actually got cool enough that I had to drag out a blanket. Today we went to Home Depot and bought a really nice swamp cooler. Itís tied on the tray behind Homer and we are headed south again. I know it doesnít make sense, but it feels right. Leaving didnít.

Tomorrow I plan to stop at a nursery in Phoenix and pick up some plants to put around Sena's grave. The Mexican bird of paradise are blooming now and are so beautiful. I hope I can find a nice one. Desert plants donít transplant well so all you plant lovers send me some good ideas or good vibes.

Oh, and I got tired of driving tonight about 8:45 pm and decided to pull off the highway and stay the night just inside the Aqua Fria National Monument. As I was coming down the off ramp I noticed brake lights on every vehicle southbound. My timing could not be any better. Traffic is stopped for miles ahead. There must be a really bad accident. I could be sitting in ŗ humongous traffic jam now.

Bad Tim, sit, stay!!

Now Dennis, Tim is not trainable to sit and stay, I mean, look at him during this virus time. The dog sits and stays much better.


Might be you could bribe Tim with tidbits of food.

I think you may be on to something Wayne. I did notice during the great mooning that our stash of chocolate kept dwindling and foolishly suspected Sena. Forgot that Tim was parked closer....

I guess that could be doable re the U Haul Trailer.

The door signs could read

Notta Ranch
Barb's Bargain Bin Beasty
Dateland AZ 85333

Not for Lease.

You get yourself into a lot of fixes that don't require fixing. You do as you must and we will see you next winter. I still think you should mount the swamp cooler right beside the present A/C unit and not lose any of your panoramic views toward where Bob and Us will be parked. Just think sitting on your recliners watching all those trains go by.

Dave and I would be in heaven.

Good call but something that stinky is not usually called mud, although the colouring is roughly the same.

I think line #2 needs to be left out, but I agree it should have Notta Ranch with maybe a rainbow and a much smaller "est 2019Ē somewhere.

Lily and I are parked at Sam's Club in Gilbert tonight, unless we get chased out. I'm buying 2 more batteries for Connie and then gonna pick up 2 more solar panels a few miles away. Sam's auto department is closed on Sunday. I'll be their first customer in the morning.

We'll hopefully make it back to Notta Ranch by nap time tomorrow. Weíre only 125 miles away.

Bob, got my 2004 bike in 2004 and in 2007 it had 64,000 miles on it. Got the 2007 in June 2007 and July 7 it got broadsided with 2000+ miles on it.

Good thing I only rode a little bit.


The victory is a very nice bike - but alas, I'm grounded.
