Pictures: Orange-Sulphur is my best guess for this Butterfly.


RV Slide: We worked most of the day on the slide and didn’t get much done but we did learn a good bit about what we need to do.

With both of us being old dudes …. it has left us both a bit sore and beat up! πŸ˜• πŸ₯΄ We have to sit under the slide and you can not sit up straight without bumping your head and to see under the trailer we have to bend over even farther or lay on the ground. I counted maybe 5 times my friend Barry bumped his head on a metal part of the slide that is a bit lower. Once today he drop the support(made of heavy metal) we are installing on his leg and made a good dent. I would get twisted up and my hip-joint would lock up and that would get me stuck and fussing …. ! I guess if you had been someone watching, it was a bit of a comedy show, even Barry and I would have to stop from time to time and laugh at our self for a bit, LOL.

Why my friend Barry helps me doing this stuff and getting beat up so much … is a mystery to me!! It is sure deeply appreciate!

Pictures: This Butterfly stopped by on a windy day just for a rest I think.



Exercise: My friend Jeanne took a rare day off from walking so I decided to climb a Wing Mountain! It was a 6.3 mile walk with a 1300 feet gain, a good walk.

Group: We are up to 5 campers in our little group now πŸ™‚

Friend visiting: Had a friend come by this morning to visit and had a great time catching up. You always have lots to talk about when you don’t see each other for a year πŸ™‚
While in the boondocks I don’t often see friends so it is always a subject I will mention when I do see them, because it give me great pleasure to visit with friends.

Exercise: Another day off I think πŸ™‚

Weather: Not bad today, it is nice but windy as can be.

Fighting the bug

Bug: The little bug is kicking, and I am throwing a few pills at it 💊 Well, I’m sure that there are lots more folks out there fighting this little bug alone with me, and it will pass with time. At this time in my life I’m not quick to wish away time but this can hurry alone if it likes!

Pictures: This should be the last of these little guys for a while. I’m still thinking this is the Black-tailed Gnatcatcher. Any of you birders out there are welcome to speak up.

Exercise: I made myself go out for a short walk, didn’t feel any worst out than I do in, so a good thing ☺ I walked with MapMyWalk+! Distance: 2.30mi, time: 44:31, pace: 19:21min/mi, speed: 3.10mi/h.

Weather: Oops, cloudy again ☁ can’t seem to get pass these cloudy days. I’ll be an optimist here, this is AZ and it will have to pass soon because it is always sunny 🌞 here in the southwest. The weatherman says it is to make it to 69Β° today so it had better get busy seeing as it is all ready near 11am and it is only 50Β° just now.

Go or Not Go: I’m debating whether or not I want to get out and about today or just chill around the RV. Don’t feel any need to go out but it would be a thing to do. If I stay in today I’m sure I’ll be out tomorrow so we’ll just see how the notions hit or not hit me today.

Update; I decided to stay home today, just chilling out.

Exercise: Not much of that today, just a little nature stroll. I took the camera alone but I didn’t see anything new from yesterday’s walk.
I walked with MapMyWalk+! Distance: 1.12mi, time: 01:01:44, pace: 54:59min/mi, speed: 1.09mi/h.

Getting that solar love

Sunshine: We are definitely getting some of that solar love this morning. I love a sunny day even if it is cooler. The weather man is predicting a few of these sunny days in a row and I look forward to that, after all the cloudy ones we had.

Exercise: Just another 2 mile walk. I walked with MapMyWalk+! Distance: 2.46mi, time: 46:07, pace: 18:47min/mi, speed: 3.19mi/h.

Tablet: I’m still liking my new Samsung Tablet, and I find that I use it a lot more than I was thinking I would. It is begaining to be the most use computer type device in the RV, the laptop is getting lonely. While in the boondocks battery life is a big deal and the tablet is doing pretty good, much better than the laptop with it’s 4 year old battery 😆

For this next job I do have to fire up the computer, photo editing. I can post pictures that I already have done but I can’t see trying to edit on a tablet, not yet anyways.

Pictures: Took a little nature walk today(I need to do more of these) and snaped a couple of shots. I’ll have two more shots of these guys tomorrow. Click for bigger images.

Friends: A couple of my friends showed yesterday evening and it is so good to have old friends around πŸ™‚ My friends, Mickey and Sandra, link to Mickey blog on the right side of my blog.

Diet/Weight: I am in the process of changing my diet up a littleΒ  and hoping to keep my weight the same (or lower πŸ˜‰ )Β  I have been on the Atkins diet for about two years now but it is time to see if I can get my diet more normal. I am doing this by slowly adding a lot more vegetable and fruits while removing some of the meats.Β  So far I am holding my weight down and not adding anything  photo crossfingers.gif !

I am still fighting my soda pop habit (maybe tomorrow will be the first day back off the soda). I am drinking water like a mad man, about 2 gallons a day.

Weather: Each day is lighting up a bit and becoming a bit warmer and I’m glad to see it. Can’t wait for the better weather this weekend.
