Location Today: La Posa South, Quartzsite, Arizona
Friday, December 9, 2016
Yesterday I was up at 7 and dressed for the cool 48F and took a walk around one end of this LTVA. It was a mile and a half by the time I returned and it felt great! Today, I wanted to duplicate the walk and was thrilled that Bill wanted to join me, so with walking sticks in hand,we did our mile and a quarter.

After reading our blogs on Thursday, Bill and I took a drive into Quartzsite again. It was a sunny warm morning and I felt more like wandering around. We had a couple of things we wanted to check out, for the betterment of life here in the ‘boonies’. We decided to buy some awning lights, something we’ve discussed often, to adhere to the rv below the awning and I found a couple of books, a slotted spoon because mine has disappeared, clippers for our pooch (ssh, he doesn’t know yet) and a couple of lightweight t-shirts for $1.50!
Before we left town, I suggested we drive back to see the Hi Jolly Pioneer Cemetery. If you click on the pictures, you can enlarge to read the story of Hadji Ali, the camel driver who was hired to survey for a wagon road across Arizona in 1857.

So many were young upon their death.

This post isn’t necessarily about the day, the visit or the new acquaintances we met, rather things that got me thinking. As I wrote the date above, it puts me in mind of two things. My girlfriend, Brenda, back home is having a birthday today.
|Happy Birthday, Brenda!|

I tell her that happened for a reason, not just a fluke. J So thinking along that line, I like to remember the number of times that kind of thing has touched my life.
Bill and I are 2 years apart, 2 years less 7 days to be exact. We are both Libras, Sept. 23 and 30 so we can celebrate our birthdays the same week. My daughter, Bridgette,
My parents were married on Jan. 15, 1946 and my oldest grandson, Taylor, was born on Jan. 15, 1995, the same year my dad died.

My son, Patrick’s, birthday is on Sept. 11, a happy day only shadowed now by the date of the twin towers attack and I have another close girlfriend who shares Sept. 11 as her special day as well.

Thank you for indulging me today! Bill will write about meeting new friends in his post on On Our Way.
Have a fantastic day wherever you are!
