My location: Eight miles West of Bouse, Arizona just off Plomosa Drive
This morning, I moved to a different time zone. I am now on Mountain Time. However, nothing changed. I still got up a 7 am. Did my normal duties, but read a few more blogs this morning.
This is what Yuma does while waiting for me to finish my blog reading. He loves to lay on the bed in the sunshine. What a sweetie! Notice how neatly it is made?
There he is!
It is beautiful out here.
Had bacon and eggs this morning, so it was fairly late in the morning when we decided to visit the village of Bouse. Thought maybe I could get gas for the Jeep there, instead of running back into Quartzsite.
It was eight miles to Bouse and I drove over to the one gas station they have and the price was $2.99 a gallon compared to $2.20 in Quartzsite, so I will drive to Quartzsite in the morning.
On the outskirts of Bouse is the old Bouse homestead. Not much left of it.
The whole business district is on hwy 72 and there is not much. We drove around and took photos of stuff I thought were interesting. There was a Friday Sales event going on and I bought a head of lettuce and that was it. Busy place.
In the afternoon, Yuma and I took a walk around our area. We ran into some heavy Cholla patches, so Yuma was having some difficulties. Got a little over three miles in. Not bad. The day has been beautiful. Low 60s with lots of sunshine and a slight breeze. Perfect for walking or about anything except lounging in a pool.
Tonight is Gold Rush night, so I’d better get the TV up and running, get dinner going and sit down and relax for the evening.
See you later.
