Yesterday I happened to see a blurb on one of the Arizona Facebook groups about a fire near the town of Dragoon–YIKES–that’s only about six miles from our house as the crow flies. The fire is 7500 acres and burning in the Dragoon Mountains–one of our view mountains. Our friend Linda sent us these photos. The small community of Dragoon and the Cochise Stronghold have been evacuated. Cochise Stronghold is visible from our home.
Getting old is not for sissies! Thursday and today I weeded flower beds and strawberry beds–goodness me, I can hardly walk! And Thursday it was dang hot, almost 90 degrees!! Today it hasn’t even reached 70 degrees–that’s Montana weather for you!
Today we made a run to town to license the Can-Am–we have a cool trip in the works and we visited with Nat. Other than normal chores, there’s not much going on around here. The next blog will be more interesting–I promise!
