Tripping About The Country-
Observations from the Road and Home.
Monday, January 31, 2011
Its been cold at night here in Yuma, and we keep having to remind ourselves its JANUARY, the MIDDLE OF WINTER. Yesterday was a short sleeve day even at that. We are husbanding our megabytes; we can't load a gob of pictures until our signal recycles; Instead, I read a lovely book by Anne Rivers Siddons, entitled Up Island. It was a fun read for me since Jim and I visited Martha's Vineyard last summer where this book was set. Loved it. And, loved the relaxation of spending a whole day curled up with a good book. We did take two walks around the neighborhood. Had to get to Auto Zone for some fuses. And, I snapped this desert themed mail/paper box previously.
Also saw an unusual garbage can. Truly the largest garbage can I've ever seen. A curiosity.Maybe they empty once a month? Saves money.
And, where water is scarce, you dig a well in your yard.
Americans are innovative, aye?
