The Cowboy needed a new place to sit now that the recliner couch we both found to be so uncomfortable has found a new home. Monday we made a quick trip to Sierra Vista and found a recliner he loves–he’s a happy Cowboy!
Tuesday we received our second booster and had no/nada ill effects from the injection. We enjoyed lunch at a local Mexican restaurant and came home.
Several nights ago the Cowboy and Emmi went out the front door and surprised a deer. Wednesday night I took Emmi for her last outs. As we stepped onto the porch a critter ran across in front of Emmi and she gave chase–a kangaroo rat AND a mouse!! Around the corner onto the grass where I always shine the flashlight up the power poles–an owl was watching us. As Emmi was doing her thing the coyotes started singing and howling all around us. We went back inside and I told the Cowboy–“it was a dang menagerie out there tonight!
Thursday morning I was out of the house early to retrieve Louanne and take her to the airport–she is taking a little getaway trip. I returned an ugly tablecloth and stopped for a few groceries before heading home. Traffic was light but Costco was a zoo as usual!
Friday I invited Dan and our Montana friend Larry to join us for dinner. Brisket was on the menu and danged if I didn’t have another cooking failure! Brisket was in the guest house oven in time for us to eat at about 5:30pm. Went to check the brisket at 4:30–the oven temp had only reached 270!!! We didn’t eat until 6pm but we had some great conversation!
Friday the wind started blowing just after sunrise and I don’t think we’ve ever had wind this bad. It was horrible! Huge dust clouds everywhere. Poor little Emmi needed an anchor and so did I–it was that bad! The Chiricahua Monument clocked a wind speed of 60mph Friday! A brush fire started south of us a few days ago, burning about 200 acres before our amazing local firefighters extinguished the fire caused by a person towing a trailer with dragging safety chains. There is the 20,000+ acre fire near Flagstaff, AZ probably human caused as there has been no weather events to cause fires. There was a multiple structure fire in Bisbee Friday–we haven’t read any more about this fire. It is so incredibly dry in Arizona.
This afternoon we journeyed into town to have dinner at Linda’s house–Janice was co-host/helper. We always enjoy meals at Linda’s house–she sets a beautiful table, the food is good and the company outstanding. We love our friends in this neighborhood!
It was a beautiful evening and we had such a good time.
Here’s our little cheerleader in the making–
