Before I start today, wanted to let everyone know that Dolly did research on that plant in yesterday’s blog and she discovered that it is a Desert Shaggy Mane or Inky Cap Puffball mushroom. If you Google it, you will see an exact picture of my plant. Congratulation, Dolly!
Beautiful sunrise with quite a bit of cloud cover. Going to be another 80s day.
Gave Yuma a new bone this morning after breakfast. He’s licking his chops, but watching me closely to make sure I don’t steal it.
Had a hard time deciding what to do today. Went through breakfast and walks and then just laid around debating what to do. I hate that!
Here’s what I’m looking at while I think. That’s Coyote Mountain and beautiful wispy clouds moving overhead. Now you know why it’s so hard to get anything done around here. I should just lay here all day!
I ran out of Tylenol and I guess my joints need it. I can hardly walk today. Or maybe with the warmer weather, I’m not drinking enough water, or both. My two choices are to stay the weekend and leave Monday or get some things done and leave tomorrow.
Finally, I couldn’t stand it anymore. I need to get to a Walmart, so made the choice to run the MH into Borrego Springs and dump tanks and take on water. So, that’s what we did today. Since I was going into town, I also decided to do my laundry. Last time was the 19th of last month, so 22 days.
I went to the Borrego Palm Canyon Campground for the tanks. It is located at the very end of town right up against the San Ysidro Mountain foothills. Beautiful campground at $33 a night.
Then it was over to the Red Star Laundry to get that chore done. Hate doing laundry. My basket overflowth.
Here’s the view while sitting on the bench in front of the laundry. I think I could live here.
By mid-afternoon, we were done with our chores and on the way home, we made one last stop at Christmas Circle, so we could enjoy the grass.
Yuma met a shy little girl.
While I was there, I went over and talked to a young man working on his bicycle. Looked like a traveler, based on the load he had on that bike.
He was from England and this was his first trip to America. He was taking time off from his work life to live a dream of his. He flew into Alaska and started bicycling down the coast. His objective is the tip of South America. Now that is some goal! He was spending the night here and then in the morning, he was beginning his journey over the San Ysidro Mountains toward the coast. I wish him God’s speed and a safe journey.
I know I need to do a blog on those metal sculptures. I haven’t forgotten, but not tonight. Tonight is Friday night Gold Rush!
See you later.
