It's been a busy couple of days...
For me - most of the weekend I've been locked up getting my budgets
done. Its that time of year....
I have to say that working on spreadsheets and budgets is extra fun when you're
doing it in the middle of nowhere...
Our walk on Saturday morning took us back up to the foothills of the
nearby mountains in search of Burros.
No burros but we did discover a hidden airfield.
Like I said earlier... here in the LTVA it is like a small city.
Everything one would want or expect can be found here.
You want a library (book exchange)? Got you covered.
Aerobics? No Problem.
Model Airplane airport and other enthusiasts to share your hobby with?
It's all here and at the other hundreds of locations where folks gather
throughout the great American Southwest at this time of year.
Along our walk we went thru one of the many washes scattered about.
In those washes the desert springs to life.
Under the expert tutelage of Kristy - who is an accomplished artist - the
ladies have been busy creating a vast array of artifacts.
During the day the sound of Dremmels, Saws, Glass Cutters..
The generator powering soldering irons, riveters...
Its been an estrogen powered Santas Workshop!
let me say that they've come up with some really nice items.
During the day I noticed the ladies gathered in close proximity and
at times whispering... I knew something was up....
After dinner Sunday night - when night had drawn its shade over the
camp and the men were settled about smoking cigars and bragging about
our exploits... our quiet reflection was broken by the
Robert Palmer Girls...
The Yuma Gourd Dancers..
Think of the Robert Palmer song Simply Irresistible and you get the idea.
The ladies had made John a present for all of the Martinis (known in camp as Johntinis)
that he had been making for them.
A rock decorated with Colored Glass that read: Johntinis.
Just another crazy night in the desert.
