This is my Tuesday May 26th post.  Due to some kind
of overall problem with ‘Live Writer’ I & many others have not been able to
publish their posts using LW.  I have copied & pasted my post into the
Blogger format & published it that way.  Photos may not...

What a cutie that little Mattie is.  Always warms my heart when kind & caring people reach out to help those less fortunate poor little animals.  We haven't been without furry best friends since the day we met way back in the summer of 1993.  Good for you guys in helping Mattie out.
Current Location: Rocky Point Oregon sunny, warm, and gorgeous! How many times can I write an opening sentence for a story? Guess I’ll revert to an old technique I learned in some great Gestalt therapy I had many years ago.  ...

I know about that writer's block & sometimes just wished I would sit back & let the block have it's way with me.  I also have a thing called 'comments & reader's block' where I go for long periods of time without reading any posts or leaving any comments anywhere.  I always like your photos:))  Surgery??
Current Location: Rocky Point, Oregon: nice evening after a gorgeous day I really didn’t want to fall into the trap of trying to explain why I haven’t written.  Kind of like writing in your diary, “Dear Diary…sorry I haven’t...

+Al Bossence I guess I actually DID let it have its way with me, at least for three weeks or so.  That "comments and readers block" is quite familiar to me as well.  I read and comment more with people I know well, and I find that after so many years of so many people blogging that much of what is said is a repeat.  Which is why I know more than anything that I blog for myself.  People all have their own lives, their own dramas, much going on for everyone, and we each have to pick and choose where to put our energy.  The surgery is expected, and I'll be fine when it is done.  More mechanical than any kind of illness, so that is a relief.  No, not knees or hips, just girly stuff :)

Nice photos & I like that yawning Turtle.
Somehow the time got away on me again and here it is a long while since my last post.  Life always speeds up during our last weeks down south.  We were fortunate to have my brother Charlie and his wife Sheila come stay for a ...

We really enjoyed our drive through Fish Creek to the wind caves as well a few years ago.  Really something to see how wind & water have shaped those rocks.  First time we drove to Split Mountain the year before we had a Hyundai Santa Fe & were afraid of getting stuck in the soft sand right at the turn off from the highway.  Following year we went back with our Jeep & were able to get to the wind caves & beyond.  Sure helps to have a 4 wheel drive vehicle alright.  Safe travels folks......:))
Last year's Coyote Canyon drive Howard and I have spent some of our best outings in our old Jeep Wrangler, exploring many of the numerous backroads here in the vast Anza Borrego Desert, pushing our limits at times, possibly n...

I think the Toyota could handle the drive up a ways, but at times like this, it sure is nice to have friends!

Like that creative Moon shot at the end.  I would have enjoyed seeing the snow topped mountains but would not have liked the cold weather which brought it.
The New Year brought a deep chill, as in below freezing temps, and our mountains were topped with snow.  It was a beautiful sight to behold, and happens every few years, but by late afternoon we were bundled up and huddled by...

The moon shot was fun. The creativity was created with a flashlight! A few cold days but our warmth had returned thankfully!

Bet you were relieved to put a stop to all those 'oscopies'.  Difficult times for you with all the uncertainty.  We are thinking of you both & wishing you all the best at these difficult times.

Saddened this morning  to read of your medical set back Lynda.  Makes us all realize how fragile life can really be & how good health is such a precious gift.  Everything is Okay until one day all of a sudden it isn't.  It's a bit of a challenge even in the best of times putting a blog post together but it is a good challenge for the mind & something that may help you now in keeping your yourself actively involved & challenged.  You have many friends & blog readers waiting to read of your next RVing adventures & travels so let that be a goal for you.  And keep those great photos coming too.  All the best...........
We have so many favorite places, and this ranks in the top 10.  We found a cute, quirky little RV Park a couple of years ago, thanks to local friends who canvass for us, and this rates high on that scale as well.  OK, it's th...

Know what you mean by that magical feeling of slipping into the shadows of those ancient palms.  Have experienced that several times in & around the Borrego Springs area.  We have often noticed that California smog as well when heading into that southeast California region. 
Current Location: Catalina Spa and RV Resort, Desert Hot Springs Midnight: I have been lying around listening to the clock hands turn.  Not very entertaining to say the least.  The silence was broken by the pit pat of raindro...

We usually have smog in one place or another here...as you said, even in Borrego Springs where it will sometimes slip over the mountains.  Sad +Al Bossence

With a water temperature of 104 even I would be tempted to get myself in that pool.  Well if there was no one else in it that is.
Current Location: Catalina Spa and RV Resort, Desert Hot Springs, CA Once again we have traveled south to the desert early in January.  Once again we are settled in at our favorite little winter spot, relaxing in the almost b...

This is so much more than an Inn ! It has everything we needed for a fun relaxing weekend. Beach, indoor/outdoor pool.....a restaurant with good quality food. Even a bar with live music ! We really enjoyed walking around the quaint village of Bayfield. We will definetly be back for another stay at the Ashwood.
