Ogilby Road West of Yuma, Arizona
This morning I woke up early and did a few things on my cellphone . Early as in 5:45 before the sun came up. Went back to sleep and then it was 8 o'clock, the sun was up and everything was back to normal.
Got lots to do today. Went for a walk first thing with Yuma as usual. No trees in these parts so the Ocotillo plants will have to do for Yuma.
Only had my ten Ritz crackers with peanut butter and cheese on each and two cups of coffee. I figured I would have two boiled eggs later but of course that never happened.
Yesterday, when I was over at Tumco, the mining ghost town, I saw another sign pointing in the other direction.
Historic Gold Rock tourist attraction. Driving there in the Jeep I took the back dirt road towards the mountains instead of Ogilby Road blacktop. Of course Yuma wanted to get out and check out the trails on the mountains.
When he was done, we headed on over to the Gold Rock Tourist Attraction. Now I have to warn you this tourist attraction is like Tumco mining ghost town. Not much to look at. But both are free, so why not?
|There is the entrance.|
|Glad I got here early to beat the crowd.|
This is the museum dedicated to the Tumco Mine East of here and there is a collection of stuff inside the building. I'll just show you some of the stuff. There is more but you'll have to come here to see the rest.
They also had stuff lining the circular drive outside.
Made it back just after noon so I could watch the Kansas City/Houston Game. It was an interesting game. Of course, Dolly loves Patrick Mahomes, the KC quarterback, so it was disappointing that at the end of the first quarter it was 24-0 Houston.
She was still optimistic, texting me that it was still early in the game, but I knew she was just dreaming. I couldn't believe that in the second quarter, Mahomes woke up and KC made four touchdowns to lead at half time. By the end of the game the score was 51-31, a historic comeback for KC.
Dolly and I grew up in the Kansas City area, so we've always had a special place in our hearts for the Chiefs.
I left poor Yuma home and at 3 o'clock I went next door to Tom and Deb's, Celebrating the Dance, for dinner and to watch the second game of the day between the Green Bay Packers and Seattle. Being from the upper peninsula of Michigan (The UP) as it is called, they are avid GB fans. I was hoping they would win too, so I wasn't poisoned at dinner :)) They have a beautiful motorhome!
We watched the game and ate a wonderful dinner of chicken tacos with all the fixings. I'm afraid I showed a little of my piggy side, the chicken was so delicious. We also were able to have conversations during slow moments of the game.
When I left their place it was dark and I hadn't thought to bring a flashlight. Luckily, I stumbled onto my place in the dark. If I had missed, you wouldn't be reading this.
Yuma was so happy to see me after three hours, he almost knocked me down jumping out the door. Once I got in I was surprised to find his food I kept on the kitchen table and the garbage can were strewn everywhere. Beat butt time! Not really. But I told him he was getting one. I think he knows I'm all bark and no bite :))
Busy day and tomorrow is a short move day and I haven't done anything to get ready so another busy day tomorrow. Better get some sleep.
You probably think I use the same sunset picture every night, but I assure I don't. Going to bed with a full belly thanks to Deb's great cooking.
See you later.
