North of MM 4, Ogilby Road, Winterhaven, California
Plans this morning had us all climbing into the Dogsled and heading off once again to the Arizona Marketplace for a walk around. We all managed to find something we really needed to buy. How rare is that? I know we can all agree pretty rare!
We stopped at Walmart for a few groceries and of course we all found some of those we needed too. I’m glad we had the Dogsled, he needed the workout!
Back home for lunch and a bit of a happy hour before my phone tingled with a message from our unmet friends Jim and Barb (Jim and Barb’s Adventure ) saying they were headed our way. I hopped into the Big Dog and off down to the road to await their arrival. Before long this massive Ram shows its grill work around a tree and in a cloud of dust whips off the road at break neck speed engulfing us both in dust. No not really, but it did show up, followed me along to our neighbourhood and pulls to a stop near the Igloo. Out pops Jim and Barb along with Zoey.
I say unmet because we have never actually met but have followed each other’s blogs for some time. Today we put voices to the faces. Sitting down chatting seemed like we’ve known them a long time. Laughter came easily and often. Dakota came out to join us after a while but the three dogs were not happy to all share the space so Yuma was put in the White Lion to keep an eye on things from the front window.
Happy hour lasted until after sunset and darkness was surrounding us, Jim and Barb stayed where they stopped for the night and with some luck we may have coffee time in the morning before they once again pull out. It has been a fantastic day with friends here in our little corner of the desert. We are so happy Jim and Barb made the drive out here to meet with us and hopefully we can spend more time together.
I will post the Marketplace pics tomorrow. Thanks for stopping by.
Until next time,
Take care, stay safe,
Always great to meet blogger friends.ReplyDelete
It is indeed!Delete
Beautiful morning sunrise pictures, Deb. Glad we were able to meet Jim and Barb. I do hope we have more time together.ReplyDelete
Thanks Doug. I thought the White Lion looked very elegant basking in the morning’s pink hue. I too am happy we managed a meeting with Jim and Barb, hopefully we get to spend more time together.Delete
Meeting new blog friends is the best. They seem like family!!ReplyDelete
They do seem like family. Now you have a voice to put with the face.Delete
So nice to finally meet you and Riley! It's like you said, it seems like we've known you both for a while now. If we make it near you up north, we are definitely stopping by!ReplyDelete
It was great to finally meet you, Barb and the fur kids. I agree it seemed like we knew you and the meeting was a formality. If you ever pass by the Rock in the water, stop in, we can find a spot for you to park, I can tack an outlet to the tree for you to plug into, it won’t work but I can provide an electric box at least. Lol. Thanks for stopping by. Hopefully we see you again before you leave the area.Delete
It was really great meeting Barb and Jim and we did have a fun evening.ReplyDelete
Love your sunrise pictures.
It was great to meet the folks, lots of laughter, a little drool, and a very good time. The sunset was gorgeous, they have been few and far between this year.Delete
Can't wait to meet Jim n Barb also! Looking forward to seeing you guys too!ReplyDelete
I’m sure you folks will have a great time, they are a super fun couple. We are looking forward to catching up with you and Ken as well. Bring the Mansion, you can see we have a big yard they we share with people we like. Lol.Delete
