|This is life as we know it here in the south. Between having a nice hot soak at 7am, a strong morning coffee in the sun and lively camp fires in the evening we cannot be any happier. The desert provides us with beautiful sunsets… and sunrises. When the coyotes howl under the full moon than I feel that we have reached a place I have longed after all my life. |
Yes, Daddy – it’s nice and cool down here!
The heat has also brought out the gnats, but they are out and about only during sunset hour and a little past that. Little lizards are scurrying around during the hottest part of the day. Already we have heard snake stories. There are rattlers here and sidewinders. Sidewinders are dangerous as they don’t warn you before they strike. We have never seen one yet and hope it stays that way.
Friday is Valentines Day. We are gonna have a site party in 90F weather out here. Lots of sweets, Music…dance. You should see this…really. These people – all retirees - hopping and clapping around like spring chickens.
How more active can it be to grow old?
