Arizona fires, silver lining

Arizona fires, silver lining

It's cooler here than forecasted. Had very little full sun today. (SE NM)
Starting to smell though. I sure hope thet get a handle on those fires. Lots of "buena vista" getting charred.

The "gladiator" fire (ours) is looking pretty good.. Think it's going to be a wrap by this time tomorrow.. IF it doesn't jump a line as it did yesterday.. on Sunday the wind changed, and we were socked in big time.. Lot of black smoke even yesterday.. today it's all white..

Sorta sad.. don't know if you out of state folks get this or not.. apparently it was an electrical fire from one of the homeowners in crown king.. guess they went thru (from the first hours) a lot of guilt.

Guilt is telling MGS about your Raven .. I'm still laughing about the "plastic" mother of pear grips, chrome plated hunter.. least Daisy left out the "crips forever" this time..

How the heck are ya? Still packing I reckon. Job site shut down today after we got the other transformer set. Too late to head home, so I'll head east in the AM. Denver kids are still in South TX and should be through this weekend. I anticipate much burned gunpowder : )

The truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth!

Great Pard..

Things are looking ok on the home.. lot more 'red' tape than in the past.. as in a LOT more.. But all else (including visit to Onc that was 100% good, and REAL thank God moment) is going great..

On line to start the serious part of the move first of next week.. Some of this were throwing $ at more than ever in the past.. but honestly don't feel guilty.. Everything on the new home (winchester dr lol) looks wonderfull..

Hope you and V have a great Memorial with the kids..

See you all later on tonight..

Hola, buds

How's things? I didn't catch much of anything the last few days. Yesterday TBH had surgery to have wisdom teeth pulled. Then, that evening, the kiddo had to go to ER for his wrist. Thought it might be broke, but it looks more like tendonitis. Always something going on. Anyway, yeah, seen this sort of thing before. Gets kinda creepy.

deserves a little no stress couch time to get over the tooth deal and the wrist thing happens.

We got a little dose of that happening here. Our "kungfu kid" was supposed to test for her black belt tonight. Yesterday she was swimming @ a friend's house, stepped into a hole in the pool deck as she was diving. Don't know yet if it's broken, have to wait 'til the swelling goes down.
I hope it's just twisted and sprained, a broken one would mess up her summer vacation.
It's going to be 8 weeks before she can schedule to test again ;<(

Other than all that, how ya doin'?

Just busy as can be. Sorry about the little one. That's too bad. 8 weeks is a long wait, but still, she's been going for years (about 3?), I'm sure a couple more months won't be too bad. Besides, she'll want to definitely be at her best for that.

I'm going to the hunting lease for the long weekend. I'll probably hunt some pig a little, but not too serious. Mainly just getting away. Actually getting a pig would put a damper on the leisure. lol

Hopefully, Jason will be able to still come along. I was going to meet Vaq out there, but it's looking like he won't make it this go.

in the woods and didn't even try to find a deer. Like you said, it would have spoiled the peace & quiet with having to do a little work :<))

The g-dau has been in Taekwondo for about 5 years. I told her I'd give her $20 when she got the black. Over the years, some way she has bumped that up to $35, inflation I guess. I'll post a pic of her in a minute.

It looks like I got time on my hands. If you see this soon enough let me know. We might be able to meet up.

sounds good. I'll PM you before the end of the day. You want directions from Breckenridge?
