Location: Darby Well Road near Ajo, Arizona
Slept well last night and for the last two nights there has been no chill in the air in the morning. I like that. Morning is my favorite time and Yuma and I like to sit outside when it is comfortable to eat breakfast.
Yuma had a run in with a fly this morning and all day he has been cowering, afraid to go outside. Silly dog. With a leash I was able to get him to walk with me around the area.

Just after noon I finally got myself out of my lounge chair and headed south towards Why, Arizona about seven mile south of here.
We stopped at the Why Not Travel Store. Also the only gas station in town. The in place in Why. In fact, the only place.

I was able to pick up another bucket of whipping cream and a small block of cheddar cheese. Happy to get the cheese. I ran out this morning. Interesting they had a sign saying only three people in the store at any one time and only one item per person. I didn't count the people and they didn't throw me out. :))

We were soon on our way north towards home so I could get my valuable grocery items into my very big refrigerator before they were ruined.

mentioned that Gaelyn, a fellow blogger I have met several times over the years was in the area. Today, I decided to look her up.
Went to her blog, Geogypsy and as I was looking at her photos, it looked like she was in my site. So, I took a walk to the next road over across the wash from me and there she was. My nearest neighbor outside reading a book.

Yuma and I had a nice chat with her and caught up on what we have been doing the last two years since I saw her last on Palm Canyon Road. She is also a regular at the Bloggerfest each year.
The afternoon has been so nice and quiet. I wrote Dolly earlier that it was so quiet here that my Tinnitus (ringing in the ears) was driving me nuts. :))
Time for grilling. Hope it is as good as last night's dinner was because I'm having the same thing. Why mess up a good thing?
