BarbZee doesn't have a blog listed, but she is following a lot of RV blogs, so she is either an RVer, or might be thinking about it??? Welcome, BarbZee!
Miss Lazee - according to her profile, she and her husband (The Princess and The Cowboy) have been spending summers in Ontario with family & friends and winters in the southwestern states. The Cowboy has been dealing with serious health issues; they will be returning home soon, depending on how things go. I've enjoyed reading your posts and have more to catch up on! My best wishes to you both.
Dr. Kold_Kadavr_faltliner, M.D., who has many blogs, but they don't seem to have an RV theme. Welcome, Dr.!
Welcome aboard to you all, Katie and I are very happy you're following along with us. :)
WINDY, WINDY, WINDY! This is the kind of weather where I lay in bed at night, hoping I set the emergency brake so I don't end up being blown over the cliff! Literally! Yesterday morning I repositioned The Palms so we are now facing the wind with our hood. Tuesday night it was super windy, too, but we were being broadsided, and last night was better. It was really blowing again this morning, and there's a weather alert for tomorrow's winds.
Today I had to drive to Yuma to get some signatures notarized. But... They are ESCROW DOCUMENTS - YAAAAAY! My condo has sold, and the buyer wants to close by next Friday. It looks like this offer will go all the way to closing escrow so, although I'm still crossing my fingers, I'm really hopeful. I needed to get the docs notarized and sent back to the escrow company overnight mail. They have a week to complete the rest of the transaction. I'll sure be glad to get this done!
I haven't seen much of my burros, just a couple of distant sightings the last few days, and some braying during the evenings after dark.
Then early this morning as the sun was coming up, I was awakened by a car revving it's motor over and over again - I think it was stuck in the sand by the road - and I looked out my loft window right down into the face of a burro. They were coming up the hill and toward The Palms. It was nice to see them up close again. They hung around for a while, rested, pooped all over - to the right, front and left of The Palms (Katie had some new smells on our walks today!), and then sauntered on across the road and over the hill, and they were gone.
I'm leaving Sunday, the final final day for the Long Term Visitor Permit, and I'm so glad I got to see them again before we leave.
Here are some photos from this morning. The first one is so funny. I loved the face on the closest burro - so funny, look at those eyes:
They walked around and nuzzled each other, looked for food in the fire pits, munched some of the bushes and then surrounded The Palms and just stood there for a while. We now have burro poop all over the place! The last times burros were here, none of them pooped. Just being polite, I guess, and now they feel more at home?
My son Tom sent me some Easter photos. Here are a couple:
When we went to town we shopped all day again. I have to stop doing that, it's exhausting! My joints hurt from so much walking, etc. I stopped at PetCo and got Katie's nails clipped and bought a big bag of food that will last her a while, we went to the Notary Public in an insurance office, then to two post offices (the one in Arizona couldn't get the documents to the title company tomorrow, so we drove to Winterhaven, CA and they promised next day delivery by noon.
