A Perfect Day In The Arizona Desert

Today was the day—we get to meet Rene and Jeanette—and as with most bloggers it was instant rapport!  The two of them rode into John and Brenda’s just before noon, we enjoyed some time sitting in the Arizona sun before digging into Brenda’s delicious lunch of grilled burgers, salad and carrot cake!  I will let the photos tell the story:


DSCN0233DSCN0237Emmi is a standoffish little dog, she likes very few people especially men—but she liked Rene!

It was as if we were around friends we had known forever and it was a pleasure to meet Rene and Jeanette—we hope to meet up with them again, soon.

We were kind of lazy this morning, emerging from our home after the sun was well up—when I went to check on Brenda to see if she needed anything I found these two cowboys and Emmi solving the world’s problems.


And I found Max and Maya solving their own problems:


And Al—look—I finally figured out how to take the shadow off the cowboy’s face!!! I am loving my new camera!


After Rene and Jeanette left we thought about heading down the road and decided to wait until morning.  We enjoyed some more carrot cake, ice cream and the sunset with John and Brenda on their deck—it was a fabulous day!!


  1. A good example of why it is important to use the camera's flash even on bright sunny days when taking pictures of people close up. That little' puff of light' nicely removes those dark shadows from underneath big 10 gallon Cowboy hats:))

  2. how nice that you got to meet up with Rene and Jeannette! another great meet and greet..seems to be lots of them going on this winter!!

  3. Don't you just love an Arizona day where you want to pull the chairs out of the shade and soak up all the sun......and the wind cooperates ? You know the sun is bright when Emmi wants to stand in Michael's shadow :-) Looks like a great time was had by all.

  4. It was such a treat to finally meet. And what a day we enjoyed! We already look forward to the next time.

  5. Its always a pleasure to sit on JB and Brenda's deck..... And Brenda's meals aren't too shabby either.... LOL

  6. Oh, that sunshine looks so appealing! We're on our way south, hurray!!!
