       Waking up to another day in paradise .  Got the coffee and computing out of the way and as the sun was rising I whipped into town, bet most of the traffic and crowds, to fuel up the car  at the Pilot $2.28 a gallon with our Good Sam Card. Then stopped at the Dollar General to add $100. to our Verizon Jet pack wifi so it is there when we need it.
how is this for bringing your toys along,
a boat in the desert?
        Back home by 8:30 and we puttered around for a bit and when Suzie was ready at 9:20 we headed back into town to check out the vendors on Kuehn St both sides east and west plus all the new vendors in Tyson Wells. A lot less vendors this year on the east end of Kuehn St and Rice Ranch. Before the Tent opens tomorrow for a week.
had to stop and say hi to this lady,she looks lonely
         Got parked at the back of Tyson wells and began walking and checking out vendors, Everyone was open and no crowds yet.
nice to browse without the crowds
tomorrow will be a different story

inviting smells to make you hungry,

         Then the east side of Kuehn St just because we could.

     Then spotted a couple on very nice Model T Fords Bill can conform this for me I am sure.
     Lots more vendors , not much different than other years.
want cactus/ they have them 
ok we had enough, 11:am getting busy time too head back to home dirt.
     As we made our way out of the parking lot onto Kuehn st, in the traffic. A car  heading the other way heard a loud tapping on his window! What the heck! Our Good friends Jim and Sharon from Alberta  Canada. We pulled over as they did and Sharon ran over to say Hi. Asked where we are an said maybe see ya later.
      Back home again I finished off our pot of chicken noodle soup for lunch,. Very tasty as usual.
yummy home made soup
       After lunch we puttered around for a bit, nice walkabout then we had company. Jim and Sharon found us and joined us for Happy Hour, Patsy and Bill came over (met them before) and then Tom and Deb came over as well. After all it was 3 pm that time of day!
we having too much fun just flapping our gums
and having a few laughs
Jim on our stairs trying to use his phone for pictures 
our neighbour flying his kites again
          Happy hour winding down and time to whip up supper. Tonight some Salmon fillets on our Weber Q.
salmon and a grilled lemon
Added to our salad sure did the trick
     Then we got to enjoy another wonderful desert sunset. 
      There ya go we had a fun  day enjoying this weather and meeting up with more friends here in the southwest. Had a tasty supper and a great sunset, what better way to enjoy our retirement!
       Thanks for taking the time to stop on by and hope y'all had a great day as well.

Where have we been this winter ?


  1. It was a wonderful day. It was nice meeting your friends, Jim and Sharon.
    The salmon looks delicious.

    1. It was another wonderful day really enjoyed seeing Jim and Sharon again and yes the salmon was excellent.

  2. 1920 Model T touring and 1926 Model T Tudor. Notice the original headlight lenses on the Tudor which have turned purple due to the manganese in the glass. The radiator shell on the touring would have originally been painted black steel.

    1. Thanks Bill, these cars are right up you alley, love your input.

  3. Looks like a giant flee market - a place my ladies would enjoy and I avoid like the plague :-)

    1. It is a huge Flea Market, we enjoy just checking things out, the fresh air and exercise is good.

  4. I just love all the vendors ... and those sausages with onions are awesome! Unfortunately, there is rarely anything "cheap". Money is the name of the game!!

    1. The vendors are fun to explore, the sausage and onions are good we had them one time.
      money is the name if the game but this is some deals to be had if you search,

  5. Good do they get that boat down? Crazy.
    That wood carver is really good. I love the bowls.
    We think we are going to see some of your sunshine today. Thanks for sending our way!

    1. That trailer is like a car hauler trailer that can lower hydraulically, Lots of neat things to check out and do love the carver's work.
      Glad you are getting some of our sunshine, you are ready for it.

  6. Well, the Colorado River isn't too far for that RV to pull the boat. Looks like lots of vendors for us to check out. That's the plan for Sunday!

    1. Yes the Colorado river is nearby , but a long way to haul his boat from Texas.
      There is still lots of vendors to check out and enjoy, have fun.

  7. It's fun to browse a market like that. I would not be able to resist having a sausage with onions!

    1. These markets are fun to browse the markets here, lots to see and eat. I have learned to resist most of these foods, guess I am too cheap I can make it at home for a fraction of the price.

  8. I tried to 'creative' park yesterday and got stuck in the soft sand. I dug myself part way out and nice folks helped push me the rest of the way. I will stay in gravel over at the big tent parking from now on. I think I'll wait until the day of Bloggerfest to go back to the tent itself as that is the last day of the tent and the crowd is down a lot.

    1. No fun getting stuck in the sand, was nice that there was people around to give you a push.
      We parked the parking lot of the tent today lotsa room at 8:30 this morning.

  9. Looks like a big crowd at your place for the afternoon. That's great. And it looks big crowds at the big event too.

    Better watch those blonde working girls from a distance. Wouldn't want to get Suzie mad.:)

    1. It is always fun to catch up friends we have not seen for a while and flap our gums..
      Not problem with these working girls, Suzie took the picture.

  10. Certainly something there for everyone as long as you are willing to pay the price.

    Thanks for the Q vendor tour.

    1. Glad to have you along lots to see and do.
      Nothing we need but do enjoy checking things out, no money spent by us here.

  11. Looks like a nice day for you and Suzie. I'm amazed at all the vendors.

    Happy Hour looks like a great time. Glad you bumped into your friends!! What a nice surprise.

    1. It was a nice day Deb. and meeting up with our friends a bonus as well.


We love it when you take the time to drop us a line.
