Yep, we picked up the papers today so Dogpound South is ours now. We have enjoyed the last week here on the property and Mike and Kathy’s hospitality but it is nice to be able to call it our own now.
A couple of days ago we ran up to Surprise to meet some old friends from another life. It is a far piece up there from our place here in the sun but the supper and great conversation we shared made the long journey worthwhile. We will be looking forward to next time Gary and Dalyce.
As for the rest of the week it has been spent around our new place burning tumbleweeds and killing scorpions.
That is right Brenda has come upon a few of those little critters this week so we are giving our local scorpion patrol below a little pep talk and trying to get them to increase the frequencies of their meals.
Now we don`t have a fancy tire rig like Al over there with the Bayfield Bunch to clear our tumbleweeds but someone had already piled them into big piles, to big to burn, so all I had to do was rip them apart and light `em up and keep them from getting away and burning up the neighbourhood. Kept my hot dogs close just in case anyone needed to see my burning permit….lol.
I have had a lot of questions asking for photo`s, well the trailer is in great shape, clean, and well cared for but other than a small shed there are no other improvements on the place unless you count the 8 trees that are growing around the yard. We are hoping that we can keep those trees alive. It is 3.3 acres so lots of room to bring a few horses down next winter and certainly enough room to have a few of our RV`ìng friends pull in and set a spell. By next year we will probably be able to offer a plug-in bigger than the 15 AMPs we have for company right now.
Starting next week we are going to get going on a fence around the perimeter and then we will need to haul some rock in to spread around to hopefully keep the dust down a little before Brenda goes off the deep end.
