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,
