Surprise, surprise!

 5:31 am - Wednesday - March 20th - GNHS - 54° F, humidity 84%, wind 3 mph out of the northeast.....clear skies today with a forecast high of 78° F.  On this date in 2013 TLE and I were enjoying a sunset near Savannah, GA.....

Following a suitable waking up period Tuesday TLE and I headed outside to take another 2 mile out and back walk averaging 3.3 mph.....

Another turkey buzzard....spreading his/her wings

....after returning we spent about an hour taking down the XMAS lights I installed on the COA office about 5 months ago, and then pulled the artificial turf from under the picnic table to clean it, and roll it up, as well as another piece we used at our 'viewing deck'.  Once that was done all I had left to do was wash the VW, and check the oil, and coolant in preparation for an overnight trip to Arizona Wednesday.  I'll write more about that at a later date.

Sometime after that we got an unexpected text message from our friends Marnie and Rich (worked for them at Ramona Oaks RV Resort back in 2019-20) that they were coming off the Bradshaw trail, and would be at our place in about 30 minutes....wait, what?  Apparently the Bradshaw trail can be picked up in Blythe, CA and driven all the way to Glamis North Hot Springs.  They have a VW New Beetle too, only it is a diesel, and is lifted with large tires upon it.....

They bought their VW Beetle brand new, and have put over 300,000 miles on over the years....still runs, and looks great!

.....anyway they began their journey on Monday spending the night along the way in the tent they keep mounted on top of their VW.  They arrived right on time, and we spent over an hour talking and catching up with each others lives, and plans for the summer....before taking an 'usie' around 4 pm, and saying our 'until next times'.  They  spend their winters in Yuma, AZ, and will be heading back to Keystone, SD for their summer job......

....what a delightful surprise, and a wonderful way to end another GNHS day!

Thanks for stopping by!
