O’Boy.....Are we "BUSY", but Lovin’ it !!

It seems like we are always coming or going. We are either getting our place ready to live in or getting it ready to not live in.   Either way, it's quite a job but one that is a “way of life” for us and we love it.

We are getting settled in our new place at North Ranch near Wickenburg, AZ. This place is really comfortable and Pat and I are so glad we found it. We are here a month or so early this Winter and couldn’t wait to get here. We have been coming here every Winter for so many years I can’t even remember.  It started way back in 1997 or 98. Guess you can tell we LIKE IT!

This is ONE of the reasons we love it here so much. It's beautiful!! We are out in the desert away from the hustle and bustle and have miles and miles of beautiful desert country right at our fingertips to roam.

DSC_0915This picture was taken just 9 months ago when Rollie and Gina came to visit. We are on our lot and all the “toy’s” are out. Little did we know at that time, that in just 2 weeks we would be moved into a HOUSE……. WOW!!  What a busy Winter that was!
I did manage to get the ATV’s out and running recently.  Yesterday afternoon we took a break and ventured out in the desert for a short ride, back just in time for ???????  You guessed it ! HAPPY HOUR!! :-)

Monday morning we had all our blood work done and will find out the results next Monday. Tomorrow we are headed for the BIG city and that’s an all day affair. I need to check with my Dr. in Scottsdale and make our usual run to Sam’s and Costco.

It is a GREAT WEEK!!!

Thanks for stopping by…..and please come on back Sunday.

It often seems like the best part of going away is coming & despite all your goings away you are now currently one stop ahead on your comings home:))

We expect to be back Sunday, to see what you've spent your time doing, and to hear your medical results. Stay warm!

We drove by Congress a few times when I was contracting in PHX in 2006-2007 and fell in love with the area. We are doing some elder care in S. FL this winter, so you are helping us keep in touch with the SW with your updates and photos. Keep up the good work and we hope to be out in the SW some year soon!

That's a beautiful area of the desert where you are located and I'll bet it's just perfect for your ATV's. Glad to hear you're getting all settled in and will be staying put and resting for a bit.

Good luck with 'vampires' who are testing your blood!!

Hope you both get good news with the blood tests. We are so ready to head south--soon, only a week now.
