|For many years a mixed crowd has come together to have a party on February 14 Valentines Day. Some people, back at home, are thinking of us living a simple and rather primitive life without much comfort out here in the desert. Yet, I hope the following pictures might have the power to convince even the most skeptical soul that such assumption is groundless and utterly wrong.|
Love was literally in the air as a love-sick pilot painted 2 hearts up there.
I did not count heads today, but assume about 100 people had met here at “Snoopy’s Valentine Party”. And look at what they’ve done:
The sweet delicacies seemed to be overwhelming and I just made a feeble attempt to check out just a little bit of everything, but of course, did not succeed. Yet my desire led me to eat too much.
Our afternoon temperature was somewhere between 88-90F which made sitting in the sun a real hot experience. That’s why tents had been set up, but the crowd was too big so some had to sit in the sun. So we decided to bring our own shade along and parked our van perpendicular to the sun so we lounged in the shade of the van. Molly needed it and so did we. When the music started there was no lack of willing dancers on the stretched-out blue tarp on the ground.
A big THANK YOU to Joan and Dale with their helpers for arranging this party for so many years. You guys are awesome!
