Tomorrow is also your birthday, Angie Lou. Hope yours is a good day there in Atlanta, and that the midwest weather isn't going to hit where you live. I will try to keep writing on this blog, as that was what you requested for your birthday gift.
Right now it is 5:45 and I am sitting on a picnic table bench outside our motorhome in my sleeveless white T shirt. The sun just went down and the sunset is always awesome here in Ajo.
Here there is the crunch of gravel when people walk, and blue sky days. We have met people who used to winter in Mexico but are staying at this park instead this year. Today we went to the dollar store, and had lunch at the little cafe where we all ate when we were here 4 years ago.
We bought some postcards at the pharmacy in downtown Ajo and stamps at the post office, and I went into the library here awhile.
We went to the BP station again today and talked with Shannon McCormick. The PAIC Jack Jeffreys gave Terry a summer Border Patrol hat. We also went back to Napa auto parts and picked up the valve for the hot water heater for the motorhome, and talked with Alex Harper again. He said he would come see us tonight where we are parked.
So, I have washed clothes and they are finishing drying hanging up. In a little bit, I will finish packing the suitcase for our Little Rock trip, so it will be ready for when we fly out on the 28th.
We drove by Celia and David's house but it is locked up and Celia couldn't come over while we were here with the key, but I did want to go inside, just to see. I feel you girls with me because we were all here together. And of course I feel David. He is here, but not here. I feel he would have moved on from Ajo eventually and had another position in the BP as teaching Spanish or something similiar.
I have taken some pictures and will share as soon as I can.... I miss knowing exactly what to do to put pictures from my camera to the facebook..... I know you showed me once, Katrina. Tell me again, ok? I know it is simple, but I have to keep doing something and make it a habit. (I miss you, Tim) :)
Stephanie, I read your blog about Sophia's room, and it was cute.
How are Terry and I getting along? I let him know when I need more space and he thinks I am putting him down a lot, but I am standing up so I can breathe, and even though his name if he were an Indian would have been "Loudly Talks a Lot" I get my words in there. He wonders why we argue so much, and he has no clue. But you all knew his personality already. Mostly we are good friends and work well together.
Onward and upward.... Will write more regarding Parent's Retreat when we return to Tucson. I am not taking the laptop with me there.
Love to all of you, my special family. I want to see McKenna, Jimmy with glasses, and hug my Tucker. I miss the grandbabies.... My cell phone still works, guys; you can call me, too. I know you miss me and that helps when I miss you too. But the sunshine is nice at least.
