Gorgeous Weather

This weekend was really nice. We got the bike out on Saturday and took a ride up to Show Low. We went to the casino there and had lunchIMG_0220 and spent $20 on the slot machines (last of the big spenders). That $20 was lasting me quite a while until I moved over to a Buzzard Bucks machine and didn't realize it was a $1 machine instead of penny machine. Funny how that dollar symbol and penny symbol can look the same. Well, that blew the $12 I had left on my ticket in a real big hurry. Oh well, the 90 minute ride up and back in the 80 degree temps was well worth it. So nice....

IMG_0219 We also got to take in the sights at the Painted Desert and Petrified Forest recently. It's the third time we've been there but it never gets old.





This little guy was sunning himself on a stone wall. What a cutie !



On Sunday we moved to the second park we are working....about a half mile down the road. We arrived in time to watch the NASCAR race. Being 3 hours behind the east coast really takes some figuring out as far as TV programs. For some shows its not as simple as subtracting three hours. The evening news comes on at 5:30 here. I do a lot of channel surfing to try and catch when our shows will be starting. As far as our sleep patterns, don't even ask. I feel like my grandmother in that we usually go to bed between 8:30 and 9 because my body thinks it's much later and we wake up anywhere from 5:30 to 6:30 most mornings. Last night we had a nice rain shower that lasted for quite a while. Of course it rained....I waxed the bike and it was sitting outside.


Today has been nice with temps in the low 70's. Supposed to be these temps most of the week. We're finishing up this job and will be pulling out on Saturday to make our way to Colorado. I haven't looked at Denver's temps lately but I'm hoping the snow has left the area and isn't coming back until next winter. Nor any hail storms or tornado warnings like we had last year when we were there. My hope is for peaceful, warm spring-like weather. Is that too much to ask ?
