Harvey,
Nice job on Lil Blue, that makes her look much more civilized than a bunch of rust.

Hmmm - missed the prospector. Will have to go back. Will not be a chore.

Yup - tipping the bike is not glamorous. It is a matter of when not if. Will not be the last time.

You have to go see the prospector. And you have to stop in Westmoreland where the big thing is the date shakes. If you like honey they have a ton of varieties, avocado honey is almost pure black for instance. But what I bought besides the date shake was a five pound box of Medjul dates for $15.00. I have about a pound left and have more friends than when I started. I like these because they aren't too sweet or too juicy, dates being all they can be.

There are a lot of metal sculptures around from south of the border. But the big difference between those and that of the Anzo-Borrego artist is the personalities of the subjects come through. For me the difference between yard art with metal and real art with metal is the real art makes you a participant. You find yourself and or friends in the work and it becomes personal.

As for bike tipping, number one on my list is the time I woke up in an emergency room and wondering what it was all about. "Evidently you were involved in a crash in the desert" was the doc's reply to my questions about what?

Number two was in a Grand Prix race. I was coming down a straight still on gravel with the front end of the 465 Yamaha still up and feeling like a shoe. Then a sixty five plus senior went by in a full vertical wheelie, 405 Huskie. I crashed, mostly because of awe. I was early thirties and always wanted to be that cool at that age. Missed it.

Thanks Harvey;
Definitely going back to see the prospector.

We have been buying our Medjol dates at the Imperial Date Farm just north of us at Bard. Interesting about the different honey's though. Will have to stop there as well. We stopped in Brawley for a milk shake.

I noticed the artist actually shaped the plates and attached them to replicate the musculature of the animal. I especially noted that on some of the horses.

One of the things I appreciated was the growth of the artist through the project. Early pieces are not as detailed as later ones. But even the early ones had a story to tell. If you've ever been around cats and horses you can see the natural personalities in the poses. There's one where a cat is stalking a horse and the horse spots it. The reactions are perfect.

Another thing I appreciated was the quality of the workmanship from a technical perspective. The welding is poor. But the sculpture is amazing. This supports a theory I've advocated forever about weldors. Great weldors have no imagination. They're able to zone out into a weld and what they do is amazing. The reason they can do it is their mind isn't distracted by fun stuff, like creative journeys.

Artists on the hand, minds are more like kaleidoscopes than telescopes. Their attention span is zilch. And the welding isn't about welding skill. Welding is just a tool to use to create what is loose in their mind and needs to be expressed.

There are exceptions, rule number one of rules is about exceptions.

Some of the sculptures have suffered from vandalism and natural deterioration. Inside those you can see the rod skeleton the artist created first.

The art was very cool. I wish I had 1/2 that imagination.

Thanks for the explanation Harvey, I now have a excuse to cover for my marginal welds!

One of the "issues" and lawd knows I hate "issues", with Jane is I have tools stashed everywhere. It can be very frustrating finding a tool because it can be in one of six or seven places. And not one of those places has the capacity to hold all of the tools.

So today I got under the belly and measured out a place where I could install a custom cabinet that would hold all of the tools. I drew it out and then took the drawing to my buds who bent up the pantaloons for Lil Blue. It was just under $250.00 for the aluminum materials broke (bent) for the case and drawer. I was about to give them the go ahead when a bud called and told me to full stop because he had found exactly what I needed.

He was right. It was a bigger unit which meant I have to reconfigure some stuff in the belly. So I picked up an $800.00 aluminum box for a $100.00 bill. And when we pull out I will have all of the tools and small stuff like electrical connectors, clamps, etc and so on in one place. And, big and, this means we will have more room for the usual belly stuff that goes in a motorhome because the tools won't be in the way.

A month from today we should be on the road, again.

Good job Harvey, I have the same issues with tools, I have 4 areas depending on size. Luckily all sockets and wrenches go in one compartment, drills grindrs and impact go in another, prybars, nut & bolt bin hacksaw etc, goes in another, and then drill bits, tap &dieset, and other boxed items goes in another place. If I had a side radiator, there would be a big tool box in the back, but alas, one does what one has to.

Good morning all!

Well, our last day here in Yuma, pretty sad. Got lots of packing road prep to do it will go fast. My plan is to be ready to back up to the trailer, hitch up and then load Rubi.

Tonight the Yuma IRV2 crowd is having dinner together, steaks on the grill.

Yesterday's Mexico trip was fun. I bought another peace of metal art,,,, like that stuff. Deb got her teeth cleaned and bought some jewelry.

Harv, not sure I follow how your tool storage is going to work. I have the same problem/challenge. My current system is a pain, hard to get at them, can't find anything.

Lloyd, the entertainment center/picnic table will go away. In its place will be the tool box.

Ah, so it will hang from the top of the compartment? Or sit on the bottom?
