Took Yuma for a walk and stumbled onto the Hi Jolly Cemetery. I knew it was here in Quartzsite, but never knew where it was. Hi Jolly was an Ottoman subject of Syrian and Greek parentage, and in 1856 became one of the first camel drivers ever hired by the US Army to lead the camel driver experiment in the Southwest. Hi Jolly became a living legend until his death in Arizona. You can do a Google search to learn more. It is a fairly large and well kept cemetery named in his memory.
After our short walk, I started thinking of what I should do about the White Lion's future. This is the list of the great ideas going through my head:
- Call the junk man and take whatever is offered and skip town.
- Buy 5 acres of desert land with pretty mountain views and have it towed there.
- Rent an RV lot that is fairly spacious and have it towed there.
- Do what I did last year and have it towed to Kay's home in Mesa, Arizona and try again to have it fixed over the summer.
