Didn't get rained on last night but have a stretch of 30% chances coming up so made a quick Alpine run this morning. Sorry I didn't get a chance to visit with any of my city friends. Did stop by Big Bend Telephone to pay my bill and chat up the girls in the office - they all remember me because I brought them a bottle of champagne right after my phone got hooked up. Got home just in time to unpack the goodies then go meet my friend RB at the GrubShack for lunch. He came out for a brief updated tour and had a chance to bond with Benita. Just after he left another visitor showed up for the full tour....Jim Maloney. A real swell guy who has been following the blog and is interested in this kind of lifestyle. Had a great visit with him. Last up for the day was receiving via FedEx, a care package from my new friend Dr.DK. Lots of very useful stuff for the Field Lab - THANKS! Like Christmas in August. Photo of the day is part of one of the many flowering bushes that are coloring my desert for now. Nice to see something other than green or brown for a change.
