Mittry Lake near Yuma, Arizona
Twenty-twenty has begun and I don't mean the TV news series. With all the shooting we have had around here, I was sure Yuma would have a bad night. But is was as quiet as the Silence of the Lambs. Never heard a thing all night long. I even caught the sunrise. Well, not really. The color was to the Northeast so I took a picture of that instead.
Hope everyone is feeling okay today and ready for the New Year. Heard some bad news first off this morning though. My son Steve and his wife Tracie lost Pebbles, one of their two beloved pet dogs this morning. She had been failing for a while now and this morning she was in such pain, they took her to the vet and had her euthanized. Not a good way to start the New Year for them.
After my breakfast this morning, Yuma and I headed to Best Buy to pick up my new camera. There was an email in my inbox saying it was waiting for me. Beautiful day for a drive. Sun shining, warm temperatures and no wind. Going to be a shorts kind of day.
Went into the store and about three minutes later I was out the door. I like that kind of service. We then ran over to the CVS pharmacy to pick up a few things and we were home shortly after 2 o'clock. I changed into shorts and laid outside for over an hour as the battery for the camera charged.
Had to try it out, so Yuma was my first test subject.
We then drove over to the Army tanks and missile display near the East entrance to the Yuma Proving Grounds and guess what? You get to see tanks and missiles. I saved you some agony and didn't put them all on this post.
I noticed I do not see any difference in the quality of the pictures, but that's okay. I have my viewer back.
As we were returning to our camp, I just had to take a picture of the Army base water tower. I've probably mentioned this before but after WWII, my Dad stayed in the service and I just remember as a small kid, when we returned home from a trip, I would see the orange and white water tower and know we were close to home.
That was our day. It cooled considerably as soon as the sun started to set, so time to cook dinner and call the first day of 2020 over.
Hope you have a great 2020. See you later.
