To Our Family and Friends
We hope you are enjoying this day with those you love. As we look back on this past year Tom and I realize we have a lot to be thankful for. With our world in a pandemic we are thankful our children and grandchildren all seem to be happy and healthy. Our extended family seems to be doing well and from what we have heard from friends they are all doing well, also. Tom and I are thankful to be able to say we are healthy. It has been quite the year but we are thankful to God for everyday and being able to still be living our retirement dream.

|Sitting outside I could not help but notice how pretty|
the flag looked in the breeze against the clouds and
blue sky across the way.

Today we had a wonderful surprise. A truck pulled up to our site with a couple from the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. The Eastern end to be exact. The husband had been reading our blog and knew we were here. What a nice couple venturing out on their first year and it sounds like so far loving it. What I failed to do was take a picture and ask if it was okay to include them in our blog. So here is hoping we cross paths again and I remember to do so. My excuse and the honest truth we got to chatting and it was so enjoyable I lost track of time.
(Quick side note: after they left I thought how did they find us. I guess I am getting used to the color of the Stinger "B" as it took me a few minutes to figure it out...lol)
Monday, November 2, 2020 ( A Catch Up Post)
Another drive I did not count as a ride while we were in New Mexico. We headed into Douglas to stop at Walmart. I was one skein short on the estimate of yarn I needed for the project I was working on and so a trip was necessary. Thank goodness for "no dye lot yarn".
|It was early afternoon but to late to make a ride on|
what is called the Geronimo Trail but we decided to
|just take a short drive and check it out.|
The Perilla Mountains.
|We turned a corner and could see the |
border fence in the distance.
|Ocotillos up the hill.|
Even without their green leaves I thing they are beautiful.
|What I like to call a wiggle worm sign.|
|Turning one corner we came upon this. |
The bull was sadly gone.
|Someone definitely with a sense of humor.|
|We can see Mexico in the distance.|
|One hardy plant.|
|We could see a lot of activity going on here.|
We took the road to the Slaughter Ranch even though the sign out on the road did say it was only open on Wednesday and Sunday. We thought maybe we would get close enough to catch a glimpse. When we went by here on the following Sunday the sign on the road still said closed. Not sure if it is permanent or because of covid.
Some Information from the Internet:
A National Historic Landmark, the Slaughter Ranch Museum was once the San Bernardino Ranch, belonging to John H. Slaughter, Cochise County Sheriff from 1887 to 1890. After numerous years, and a change in ownership, the ranch has been restored along with several outbuildings. Visitors can glimpse the life of a turn-of-the-century cattle baron as they view the house, wash house, icehouse, granary and commissary. Bring a picnic lunch with you when you visit the Slaughter Ranch. There are many shade trees overlooking the one-acre House Pond which provides an ideal spot for lunch, as well as a good spot for viewing the birds attracted by the aquatic habitat.

Slaughter Ranch, an ominous name but I'm glad it was explained as being the owners name. Ha ha
