After 40+ years in Nebraska, I've scooped my share of snow and weathered many a blizzard. Oh, how well I remember many winter nights that it got down to -20 deg below 0. I remember this happening every night for about 2 weeks in a row and it would only warm up to about 0 during the day time. Brrrrrrrrr, makes me shiver to even think about it. We have been here almost 2 weeks and it's been perfect every day. No humidity, no wind, cool mornings and warm afternoon's. I love it!
Slowly but surely we are getting things done around the place here. Remember this picture of how our back yard looked when we got here?
Several of the trees had split at the trunk and needed to be cut down. Some branches were hanging out over the neighbors property, so we had to address the problem. See below:
Ms Gina's rock work around the tree's?
Thank all of you for your congratulations of the quick sale of our property at Retama Village in Mission, TX. The final step, wiring of the funds is scheduled to happen TODAY. So keep your fingers crossed and yes, as Margie and Roger said, what a great Christmas present!
Yesterday, we spent all day in Prescott. Prescott is a neat town and much easier to get around in than Phoenix. They have almost every kind of shopping you need up there and it's all in one area east of town. We had an exciting day looking for the things Ms Pat wanted. The crowds weren't too bad at first, but picked up as the day went on. Shopping still is NOT my thing, even if it is for things we need. Boy, we need a LOT!! It just wears me out! It was way after Happy Hour when we got home and I think Ms Megabyte2 thought we had abandoned her for sure. She was happy to see us, but not NEAR as happy as I was to see HER!!
We are happy to see 3 more FOLLOWER'S:
Bob and Vicky
Jan and Len
