I can’t believe that it has been almost a week since I updated – this retirement is tough – LOL!!
Hope everyone’s Thanksgiving was wonderful – we are all so blessed!
So here is what we have been doing….
There are a number of trails that go out into the desert so on Sunday we decided to take a little walk. Some scenes:
The lonesome Saguaro:
Back in the park, we visited the cactus garden. This Saguaro is over 400 years old – WOW!! An arm fell off last spring and I was told that the arm weight ~ 2 ton – OH MY!!
Notice the little birds that live in the Saguaro – cool!
On Monday, Andy had an endoscopy that showed his old ulcers are healed but he has a new one. Nothing to worry about but he will be staying on his meds. I am not sure what is causing them so our next step is to talk with a pharmacist on his other meds and see if they are having an effect. His next test is next week.
A couple we met in Pahrump, Lynne and Fred, are here in the park so on Wednesday, Lynne, Fred, Steve, Andy, and I went to dinner in Wickenburg and had a great time. The great time continued as we all sat together on Thanksgiving. It is so neat to re-meet people on the road.
Steve has been showing us more of the night skies. We saw some close ups of the moon – WOW! And more of Jupiter and other star clusters. And on Thursday night we had an incredible view of the International Space Station with the Space Shuttle trailing as it went across the sky. Tonight we were able to see the International Space Station again. Did I saw WOW and AWESOME!!!!
In between we have just been hanging out, doing beading, reading and helicopter flying simulating – :-))).
Tomorrow we are heading to the local Gem and Mineral Show and the Museum in town so stay tuned.
