Larry wore this shirt to dinner tonight—it was WAY brighter than it shows in this photo—in the sunlight you really did need sunglasses!! Emmi and I took a late evening stroll and I could see Larry and Geri a half mile out in front of me—identifiable by that shirt!!
We’ve been on the socializing circuit again--Wednesday night we had the pleasure of meeting Don and Vicky from Amarillo, TX—friends of Jim and Ellie. Jim worked his usual magic with the grill and we spent a couple hours visiting and eating—a good time as always. Mike and Pat as well as Caryl and Jerry joined us.
Tonight we went with Geri and Larry to Screamers Drive-In located in Wickenburg—typical drive-in food but very, very good! I guess what I had wasn’t typical—fish tacos—but they sure were good—even if it is a long way to water around here!
We are still taking our walks into the desert early in the morning but keeping a close eye and ear out for rattlesnakes. Don and Vicky were staying on Mike and Pat’s extra lot and while hooking up to leave this morning they had an unwelcome visitor—a small rattlesnake.
On this very warm day we spent a lot of time outside in our loungers reading. I will frequently use my Kindle Unlimited membership to download free books/almost free to my iPad Kindle app. Sometimes the books are good, other times not so good—but they are free/almost free. One recurring problem with the self-pubished books I have read is the lack of proofreading—in every one of the books I’ve read there are misspelled words, sentences which make no sense, etc. Publishers have hundreds of proofreaders at their disposal and authors who self publish on Amazon don’t have that luxury. Maybe the self publish folks could send their books out to lots of friends before hitting the “publish” button? Are there services out there which will proofread for a fee?
Because Ms. Emmi is black the sun just bakes her when we are out on the ATV. I’ve been after the cowboy to engineer her a sun shade of some sort—I guess I nagged enough!! Isn’t it adorable—he created the frame and I made the shade from an old pillowcase. Emmi wasn’t too thrilled but she will get used to it just like the goggles!
Life is good!
