This is my Christmas Tree - it has little red jingle bells for ornaments and is hanging from a little hook Velcrowed on under my bed mattress. It's perfect! I really like it and it's right where I can see it all day. After Christmas it will be stored under my mattress in the corner so it will be completely out of the way. This is exactly what I was looking for last year.
And that's my Christmas Amaryllis Bulb that Hazel brought me a while ago. It's really growing. If I remember right, when the flower starts coming up, it will be MUCH taller, and I'll probably have to put it on the floor. It's going to be interesting to see how tall it grows and what color the flower is. :)

Hazel and the Greyhounds came over for a visit yesterday afternoon. We had a nice visit, as always, and Hazel and I decided to visit the Nudist Camp right down the street from my campsite. It's right across from me and down a little. Katie and I walked right past it on a couple of our walks, and I didn't realize it. Of course, the rigs aren't right on the road. :) There is a little sign with an "N" and some arrows, but I didn't know what they meant. Last year some of the Dingbats were taking about that area, saying they had driven through but had never seen any people. Well, let me tell you...
But first, here are some things of interest in that campground area. They have some beautiful, very tall and multi-armed Saguaros there. Many more than where I am. Must be God's way of keeping everyones eyes looking up.
|They have tons of beautiful Saguaros in this area. This one is super tall and has a dozen arms, I think. New green arms are growing from the bottom.|
As we were driving along we noticed three men in different places walking around their rigs sans clothing. It was a beautiful warm day with a slight breeze; I guess it was perfect for nude-ness. I've never been in a nudist camp before, but at this point in my life, not a big deal from a distance. I will say, though, they were all a very dark brown (like the nude bookseller in town, Paul Winer) and I hope they use sunblock!
When I saw these, I was jumping out of the car with my camera. Someone made some beautiful rock art. There are four of them, and they are very big. I had to hold my camera up as high as I could to get a decent shot. Kind of like crop circles, but smaller, if you are familiar with what those are.
I saw the man below heading toward his rig, completely naked. He was parked right near the circles above and may have been the rock artist. Of course I wasn't going to go over and ask him about them. I would have if he had clothes on. Hazel said he was walking around outside the rig while I was there, so maybe he was waiting to tell me about them. "Sorry, Charlie. No shoes, no shirt, no pants, no conversation."
When I got back in the car, he turned to go into his rig and I was going to snap his photo from the rear. I would have posted that one as is, but at the last minute he turned around. I definitely got more than I bargained for, and it wouldn't have been fair to post his picture in my blog so I put some digital scrapbooking graphics over him. A loin cloth and a facial disguise. I didn't want him to be recognizable, and I certainly didn't want to be publishing porn.
If you are interested in camping in a clothing optional area, there is a place here where you can do that. There were little rigs, big rigs, some very expensive looking rigs, some plain sites and some decorated very nicely - all kinds of people just like the rest of us. I'm not that brave, but it's nice that a lot of people are that free. When you wake up in the morning, you just never know what you're going to see that day. ; )
From Me and Katie, have a great Sunday, everyone! :)
