        After a great nights sleep up and I am ready for the day. Ready to get out and about at 7;30 as the sun was rising but too chilly for my first walkabout. So a nice drive into town and around  (nice in the early mornings with no traffic). Just grabbed a head of lettuce and the Roadrunner market and back to home dirt again.
          We have noticed this year that our Verizon mifi internet is much faster and very little slow downs compared to previous years and we do not have a booster. Compared to 2006 when extremely slow or non existent  at times.
My first drive about town stopped to take a couple of pics
the Camel stop. service station from days gone by
old post Office from back then as well
        A bit later a stop by the Reader's Oasis Book store. To get a refund from Paul Winer's concert last Monday that was cancelled because he had the flu. Finally opened up again today. His wife was there (just over the flu) he is still sick in bed. Hope he gets better soon !
this be Paul such a character and great entertainer
he has a very full bookstore as well
          Back to parking lot I spotted this Old ford pick up truck parked right beside me, Purrs like a kitten and the paint job typical SW desert old vehicle. no paint but still solid as a rock.
        Back home  around noon in time for lunch and noticed that Rick had out up the Bloggerfest Signs that I made 2 years ago. Glad that Paula is keeping them in good shape.
this be the way
      This year Paula In the Shadows ( Shadowmoss) is the spokes person/ co-ordinator  and wanted this to happen again. Our 4th annual Bloggerfest. Thanks Paula! Rick and Kathy arranged the Ramada and set up the signs and it all came together.
Shadowmoss (Paula) welcoming  us all and we made our introductions
     This was done and we all socialized, chatting and sharing stories. what a great time to meet and greet fellow bloggers and meet some new followers as  well.

sausage, smal foil heat the kraut and the buns warming in the the large foil.
