I remember this bird from last year. I think it's a female house finch.
Hazel brought me a gift - an Amaryllis that should bloom right around Christmas - Thank You, Hazel!
Yesterday in the early evening Denise arrived in Quartzsite. She came in right at dusk, and this morning she snagged a great campsite behind me on the other side of the wash. She's got a beautiful saguaro cactus in her site, and some rock work that a previous camper did. She and Bennie got all settled today and I think she plans to stay a while. Who wouldn't?
Then this morning I noticed a car near Denise's rig - Geri and Terry were visiting. Later they walked over to visit me, too. It was really nice to see Geri and Terry again. I met them last year, right before I had to go to San Diego to the hospital, and they were gone when I got back. I've enjoyed reading Geri's blog during the last year and hoped to see them this year again. After checking out my campsite and walking around with Denise while she was looking for hers, they picked a super site behind me, too, next to Denise. They went back to the RV park they were in, checked out and now are settled in their new site. I should have gotten a photo, but didn't - maybe tomorrow. Unfortunately they're having electrical issues - Terry worked all afternoon trying to diagnose the problem, but so far no luck.
When we stopped for an overnight at Cabela's last week, I bought a "frogg toggs" pack. I wasn't sure if it would be blazing hot this month at Quartzsite, but I wanted to be prepared. I had planned to buy something like this at one of the little businesses here, but thought I'd better snag this while it was right in front of me.
From Me and Katie, have a great evening, everyone!
