Desert moon

Ever think how fragile our world is? 

Gee, it wouldn’t take much to roll the moon right down that hill . . .

Les comes by this morning and drops off an armload of paperbacks. 

I give him an armload of mine to take back to his camp.  Between all this reading material and my new radio, I’m living well.  (Notice how I didn’t write “I’m living good.”  Hey, I do what I can to keep adverbs from disappearing completely from the English language.)

Today the crew and I motor into Yuma to pick up mail. 

Of course, I choose the busiest day of the year for the postal service.  I open the door to the lobby and walk smack dab into a line of thirty people or more, many holding boxes.

I don’t have much reason to shop while in Yuma.

We turn around and scoot right out of the city, go past the turn to our home in the desert, and pull into a rest stop that has trash bins and a good drinking water spigot.  Chores done, I take the crew on a quick walk-around.

This is the Imperial Dunes Recreation Area. 

The dunes would make great photos.  However, I go to take a photo and find out my memory card is full.  Durn it.  Oh well, y’all know what dunes look like . . .

Back we go to our cozy home.

1-DSC01822Since I screwed up the photo-taking today, you’re seeing only photos taken at dusk.  Bridget and Spike manage to slip out of every frame.  Given a choice of chasing after those two renegades or catching the full moon, I go with the moon.

But what about the sun?

I turn around from the moon and take a photo of the last glimmers of today’s setting sun.

How can one not love the desert?

These RVs are my far-away neighbors.  Yesterday a guy drives all the way out to our campsite and parks.  Of course, this burns my toast.  As I sit on the patio mat, I have a perfect view of the mountains with his darn RV in my face.

1-DSC01820I can’t help but send mental messages his way every chance I get, which amounts to several times throughout the day.  Go away. . . Go away. . .

He leaves this morning.  Heh-heh.  Guess I don’t need to resort to the fall-back plan of sending Spike over there.

    Amazing pictures of moon and desert! It’s cold in Phoenix and I’m wearing fleece sweats and very woolly slippers with socks on. Enjoy your stay in AZ I finished the book ‘Wild’ about a woman who hiked the pacific coast trail. Now on to Hansel and Gretal…not the children’s book. I bought this book while in Maui, HI with the intention of reading it on the plane but never got around to it.

  3. Pleinguy says:

    Nice pix of the am and pm desert. So now, you’ve added mind games to your bag of tricks 🙂 Glad to see it worked to rid you of the view blocker. Enjoy the camp.

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      Actually all the photos were taken at dusk. Glad you liked them.

      I’m so spoiled from all the private boondocks that I’m perturbed when anyone comes anywhere near our campsite.

  4. Alice Scheibelhofer says:

    It might have been dusk but the pictures of both moon and sunset are lovely.

    Gee, it wouldn’t take much to roll the moon right down that hill . . .

    Hey, don’t give the local rowdies any ideas! 😉

  6. jeff says:

    sue glad to see that you have taken up the honorable and righteous cause of saving the adverb. oh you schoolteachers. lol

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      Hi, Jeff,

      Somebody has to look out for the endangered parts of speech . . . 🙂

      • Gayle says:

        Reminds me of the old Apple campaign:

        Think different.

        After cringing at the memory, now I learn that Jobs intended the “different” to be a noun, not a modifier, i.e. Think Cool. Who knew? (RVSue, do I get extra credit for this?)

        • Pen says:

          Well thank you for that. I, too, cringed when I first saw it (and every time thereafter). From Apple, no less. How *could* they! Still, it seems like a tiny bit of a stretch (I mean, not that it’s not true, but that anyone would read it and interpret it the way he meant it). I guess Think “Different” would have been, oh, too punctuated or something 😀

    • Pen says:

      Hear, hear! We have a language that can express things so clearly and with such variety…. let’s use it. In my mind this blog post cancels out three “ice teas,” two “drive slows,” and a “select items on sale.” Whew, only 4,972,376 to go…

      Sunset sure has been beautiful the last couple of nights. Just the right clouds – they amplify without obscuring. What a great time of day (I hear mornings are nice, too ;))

      • rvsueandcrew says:

        Aw, Pen… Try to get up early for the sunrises. They often are lovelier than the sunsets.

        I’m happy that you are enjoying your first week of boondocking in the desert!

        • Pen says:

          I am! And thanks to your blog (and the gang here in the comments), it’s the perfect combination of solitude and “company.” Plus the info to figure it out.

          (Mornings: they are what happens if you stay up way too late… right?) 😀

          • rvsueandcrew says:

            Pen . . . I agree with your statement about “the perfect combination of solitude and ‘company'”… That’s what this blog does for me, too!

      • Crystal says:

        Two that make me bang my head against a wall: “it use to…” and “they could of….”

        • rvsueandcrew says:

          I’m with you, Crystal. “Could of” is the worst!

          I guess it comes from the sound of the contraction “could’ve.” When I taught 6th grade Lang. Arts, that was one of many . . .

        • Gayle says:

          How about bad pronunciation:

          I’m going to the liberry on Valentime’s Day because I’m ‘poss-a do that.

          EEEEEEEKKKKKK!!!!

  7. Diane, Blue Ridge Mts. VA says:

    Sue, I loved the “desert moon” shot! What a grand thing to see. You will get the dunes when it’s right. Thanks for the experience and enjoy your new books and tunes.
    Thanks to you, I did buy the Olympic Wave Heater but did not see it show up on the blog. Hope you got the commission okay. Will try to have it installed in Febuary as I also need to do other work on my little camper. Happy days in the desert to you guys!

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      Hi, Diane,

      Yes! I did get credit for the Wave3 heater! Thank you very much for giving me a portion of that sale. I wish you many warm and cozy days in your camper!

  8. Trip and Lisa says:

    Hey Sue,we ordered the Arizona Benchmark off your link,so we’ll see how we like it before we order anymore.Wish they had one for Texas as we have done the Padre Island thing alot over the years and plan on starting there next winter.
    Love the pictures but if your gonna move that moon off that mountain,,could ya share some of what your taking?,especially since I have this sciatia thing going on right now,lol.I would not wish this on my worst enemy.Great photos Sue,Thanks for sharing.

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      Hi, Trip and Lisa,

      Thanks for ordering through my blog! Maybe someday Benchmark will publish a Texas atlas. It must take years and a tremendous investment of people and money to pull one together . . . and Texas is so big.

      I haven’t added Texas into my travel plans . . . yet. I remember, back in my pre-vagabond days, dreaming about camping on Padre Island. Apparently you like it!

      • Trip and Lisa says:

        We agree that based on the info you provided,a great deal of effort must go into making the Benchmark.Really looking forward to getting ours for sure,Thanks again.
        Padre Island is a place I used to go yearly for a few weeks every winter when I still lived in Georgia,and even in the winter there I enjoyed the peace and quiet and the expanse of the beach.I love people,but love my space as well and surprisingly,that can actually be found there in the winter as well.

  9. Lee J says:

    You know what I miss?

    Rolling the cursor over the photos and reading your comments… sigh..

    I am up to February 2012, I was so proud of you when you did your very own first boondocking!

    I finally decided on a name for my new to me Casita…the ’round tuit’ because I finally got ‘a round tuit’… my husband told me tonight he just might go camping with me in it!

    Cracking myself up…

    I am loving your blog, you are a lovely person, and it shows clearly in your posts…

    Lee in northern California

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      Hi, Lee,

      Great name for a Casita! As for your husband . . . pardon me if I intrude . . . but I have a suggestion. Have HIM read all my blog posts from the beginning. Then he surely will want to go camping with you in your new Casita.

      Yeah, it was fun writing those hidden messages. Now that I’m self-hosting, I don’t have that feature available. Oh well, rvsue and her canine crew is always evolving . . . I’m glad you’re sticking with us and loving it!

      Thank you for the kind words.

    • Crystal says:

      Love that name! When the kids had to take gag gifts to school for high school student council, we had fun making them instead of purchasing. One year we cut a big circle from cardboard. We decorated with glitter and feathers and all sorts of things, and wrote “TUIT” on the top. We attached a little poem or statement about never having to worry about getting things accomplished now that you have your very own round tuit. Those were fun times!

  10. Sergio says:

    This World is not fragile… we are! The World has seen much worst in the past and kept on going. Our existence depends on a fragile equilibrium, a livable scope. Brake it for good and life might be miserable… but the World will survive. No problem.

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      Good point, Sergio!

      I offer this just for the sake of conversation . . . Can it be assumed without doubt that something will continue simply because it has done so up to this moment? 😉

      • I feel that our planet could survive much better without the human race interferring!The human race, however, could not survive once the delicate balance is forever disturbed!

  11. It does burn me too when people have to park so close to you in the desert, keep enjoying that wonderful weather.

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      Hi, George and Suzie,

      What made it especially exasperating was the timing. I finished setting up camp and nesting — unhitching, leveling, chocking, lowering the stabilizer jacks, parking the PTV just so, connecting the power cable, putting up the solar panel, erecting the antenna mast, threading the antenna cable through the window, staking down the patio mat, arranging the chairs and little side table, hanging the hummingbird feeder, setting out the beds for the crew — when the guy moves next to us less than an hour later! Aargh!!!

      I could see that I’d be asking the guy how long he planned to stay and, if long, breaking camp and moving again.

  12. Diann in MT says:

    Sue, delightfully prescient woman, undertaking adventure courageously daily. Not so demurely, our tale-spinner, projects repelling thoughts toward seemingly oblivious interlopers. A Job for the most different thinkers! Well done! Well done!
    With trusty canines alongside, our Sue will live happily ever after, shooting the moon in the most magnificent images imaginable.
    Thanks for the thoughts and amazing photos of the desert. Warms my heart tremendously, Sue!

  13. Saw that moon come up yesterday. I was driving home from somewhere…and saw it at the end of a long country road. Wished I had something better than my phone, but pulled over and took a bad shot anyway. Then realized there were 3 other cars doing the same thing. It was amazing.

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      Hi, Dawn,

      I love it when natural occurrences cause us to pause with wonder and appreciation. Your comment is a lovely vignette.

  14. Elizabeth says:

    It is amazing to find people coming to camp on top of others, when you would think that they preferred solitude too, if boondocking…but maybe it is a financial thing instead and they really prefer a close trailer park…one wonders. Years ago, when i was young and we went camping with my parents, etc. seems if we were thinking to park someplace and others were nearby, they ASKED if it was ok with them!! Sure would be nice today if folks did that. Glad the guy left!! Maybe he was worried about the dogs bothering him at some point…heehee…and it is good you did not need to send Spike over!!

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      Hi, Elizabeth,

      One of the many reasons why I like to be off by myself is so I don’t have to be concerned about the crew bothering someone. Spike likes to snoop and Bridget likes to bark, and one leads the other into those activities. 🙂

  15. We are in an ancient hammock campground in Florida with many trees and we missed the rising of the moon! (actually, I forgot it was full moon night and spent the evening hours with my kindle!) Loved the moon rolling down the mountain, it is now on my desktop! LOL! Loved all the moon images, but that was my favorite! Fooey on the RV camping so close to you! Here, in Highlands Hammock SP, the campground is almost empty during the week, but busy on weekends! We have no close neighbors!

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      Hi, Geri…

      “ancient hammock campground” — sounds delightful! I remember the atmosphere created by the old trees in Florida draped with Spanish moss. When we camped in the rainforest in Washington state, it reminded me of that. I’m very happy you and Chuck are enjoying Florida.

  16. rvsueandcrew says:

    MESSAGE TO READERS:

    RVSue, procrastinator extraordinaire, finally completed the money statement and monthly summary of camps for August 2013 (See header for drop-down menu).

    September is done… Now I’m only two months behind!

  17. Pauline says:

    Who or Whom….there or their….its or it’s Drive careful….LY!!!!! Drives me crazy also. If you remember Susan, Dad never told us how things were pronounced, used or spelled correctly…he said…GET THE DICTIONARY and find out for yourself. On one ride to your house in Woodstock, Dad almost came unglued when he saw a sign that said “Mechanec on duty” LOL
    Wonderful pictures! Have you ever seen those EXPENSIVE coffee table picture books? Your pictures would make a fantastic books!.

    Love you, Dear Sister
    Pauline in Rienzi Mississippi

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      Hi, Pauline,

      He must’ve said that more than once because I remember him saying it. I always think of Dad when I see something similar on a sign for a business, such as “upolstery” instead of “upholstery.” I can hear him say, “At least learn how to spell what you do!” He didn’t have much tolerance for ignorance.

      Nice compliment. Thanks. Love you, too!

  18. Jim in AL says:

    Second time poster. I check every day for your latest blog post. Your blog is the best that I have followed. Thanks for the effort to keep us all updated.

    I am doing my part to keep your Amazon $ flowing in! 🙂

    Now that you are a seasoned pro at camping/boondocking, I was thinking that for next year we should have a “rvsue does Alaska” blog. We are going for the second time with our Truck Camper. My brother and sister-in-law are joining us this time.

    Jim

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      Hi, Jim,

      Great idea! I’m not sure I’m ready as soon as next summer though. I still have many places in the lower 48 calling me. Gosh, what a life! To sit here in the desert, sunny and warm in December, and dream of all the destinations, all the new roads to travel, new and beautiful camps… *sigh* . . . I hope you’ll stop by here often, Jim.

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      Oh, and thanks for the high praise — “the best that I have followed” — as well as the Amazon orders. Always appreciated!

  19. Glenda in OZ! says:

    Love Love Loving these photos of your place in the desert at dusk…………..makes for very moody shots………….love them Sue!

  20. Ladybug says:

    I can overlook almost any grammar issues, except for its/it’s! But it’s hard having spent so many years as a secretary…

    Sue, having spent time in the south, you should appreciate this. My mother’s pet peeve was pronouncing ‘pretty’ as ‘purdy’. She was constantly correcting me while growing up, and I say ‘pretty’ to this day.

    One day while looking at a Tennessee map, I discovered that we have a small town named ‘Purdy’. When I retire, I’m going to move there just for spite. *heh*

  21. Marilu, Northern Ca. says:

    Hi Sue,
    One thing that sets your blog apart from others is that your readers are unusually nice , caring people. I’ve stopped reading comments on most sites because people are hurtful, or genuine crack pots who have some issue they are pushing. Do you edit the comments extensively to get rid of these low-lifes or do you just naturally attract polite and interesting readers?
    I love the moon on the mountain.
    Marilu

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      Hmm . . . interesting question, Marilu. I know what you mean about the readers who quickly become rude or hurtful. I’ve had a few appear here.

      A very small number of fellow bloggers resented the popularity of my blog, and, instead of working harder to improve their own blogs, they grabbed an opportunity to write disparaging remarks about me here and elsewhere. I “told them off.”

      I think they got the message that I was a hair’s breadth away from pulling the trigger on their identities and was ready to blast their arses clear across RVing blogdom. (Hey, I’m only human.) I’ve had no problem with them since then. LOL!

      Mostly my blog attracts kind and thoughtful people. Why? I can only guess the reasons. I do stay away from politics and religion.

      As for the latter, I will not deny my faith, but I refrain from writing on my blog how I first became cognizant of God’s offer to reveal Himself to me, as well as the supernatural events that confirmed my new and personal relationship with Him once I accepted His invitation. This decision comes from Matthew 7:6 — “Do not cast your pearls before swine.” My faith is best expressed in my real life.

      Okay… enough of that! I’m breaking my own rule! 🙂

      My readers are some of the finest people in the world . . . kind, thoughtful, tolerant, compassionate, generous, mature, polite, interesting, upbeat, adventuresome . . . and much, much more . . .

      Why am I (and my readers) blessed with the wonderful, positive energy that appears here? I don’t really know.

      Thank you, Marilu, for being a part of it.

      • Crystal says:

        Another thing I love about your blog that I don’t see often is that I’m not “lost” if I jump in somewhere. You have a way of letting readers know what’s going on, as well as the map of where you are. I love the links at the top. If I were new here, I would be able to find info on your rig, your tow, about you and your dogs, and make the decision to hang around or leave. I visit many where I just can’t find out their mode of travel, where they are without searching backward, if they full-time or not, if they’re retired or still working, on and on.

        • rvsueandcrew says:

          Gee, that’s a great compliment. Thank you, Crystal!

          I remember the time I read a blog and the blogger wrote “Isn’t it terrible what happened to ****? It’s such a shock.” (She printed the name of the person). I knew that person and didn’t know what was going on! I frantically asked in a comment and she apparently didn’t read it for a while because she didn’t answer. I was going nuts looking all over the RVing blogsphere until I found out that the person had died during the night. We had been corresponding by email for a few weeks. That reinforced my belief that a blogger should always give the important details!

  22. wa_desert_rat says:

    I seem to remember that you mentioned Sidewinder Road. Just mooching around the Internet I saw a post from a guy who said he was interested in General Patton’s training areas in the desert of CA, NV and AZ. One of those was Camp Pilot Knob which was near Yuma: http://www.militarymuseum.org/cppilotknob.html

    That entire desert was the scene of intensive military training. Bomber pilots, fighter pilots, tank commanders, and infantry swarmed all over those areas in the years betwen 1942 and 1944 and huge airports (some of which are still being used) and headquarters areas were constructed and then, sometimes just a few months later, dismantled.

    An interesting area. 🙂

    Craig

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      Hi, Craig,

      Thanks for sharing that piece of history with us. Interesting! I’ve driven the length of Sidewinder Road (last winter). I don’t remember seeing anything military, but when you don’t know what to look for, you tend not to see it.

      The presence of the military is still here . . . U.S. Army Yuma Proving Grounds and the Barry M. Goldwater Air Force Range.

      I’ve seen several military helicopters (the kind with a prop on both sides, rather than front and back) fly over this part of the desert.

      • wa_desert_rat says:

        Here is what they say about the area. Pilot Knob was just the southern edge…

        “This was the largest Army base in the world covering some 18,000 square miles. It stretched from the outskirts of Pomona, California eastward to within 50 miles of Phoenix, Arizona, southward to the suburbs of Yuma, Arizona and northward into the southern tip of Nevada. It existed primarily to train U.S. forces in desert warfare for the North African campaign.”

        1 million American soldiers and airmen were trained in this huge multi-base area. Not much left. All you’d see at Pilot Knob would be the foundations of some of the structures; a lot of the men slept in tents. But that web page (and many others like it) have a lot of information on Patton’s desert training areas.

        Craig

  23. Connie & Mugsy (MN/AZ) says:

    I was out walking tonight and the moon was beautiful and bright surrounded by wispy clouds.

    I answered a message in the previous days post that got moved into your “held” messages because I added the link for the 12 volt mattress pad that someone asked about. But, I just checked and it is also sold on Amazon now, so you might want to add it to your drop down links. Best RV investment that I have made. It is a bunk sized mattress pad. (if you put “12 v mattress pad” in the Amazon search box it comes up) It is not that small pad that you linked to…

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      I’m glad you caught that, Connie!

      Here is one of my links to the product you describe:

      Twin, Heated Mattress Pad by Electrowarmth, Non-Fitted, Size 36 x 60, Model# T36 12V Used in Trucks, RVs, Campers

      I replaced the link in the previous post with this one. Gee, now I’m wanting this heating pad!

      A person relying upon solar-charged batteries would need to be careful not to leave it on too long. One of the customer reviews states that it uses “1.5 amp hours per hour on the lowest setting.”

      • Connie & Mugsy (MN/AZ) says:

        What I have found is that I turn it on high (which is 4.5 amps) while I am getting ready for bed… and I tend to putter around. Then I get in and shut it down to the lowest setting when I am done reading and ready to turn the lights off. Sometimes I wake up too warm and shut it off, but I’ve never had to turn it up during the night. Mine is amazingly efficient at overcoming my major problem which is getting my feet and lower legs warmed up enough to let me sleep. It probably is 1.5 amps at setting 1, but another person said that it still warms a bit below the 1 setting. I will have to try that next time and see how that works.

  24. Mark Watson says:

    I like to look at the moon… every now and then, a howl inexplicably escapes from my person.

    OK.. verbs, nouns, adjectives… I think I got all that… but what the heck is a dangling participle???? Examples please.

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      Hi, Mark…

      Okay, I’ll put my teacher hat on.

      First a participle is a word or phrase modifying the subject of a sentence.

      Example: “Sniffing around our neighbor’s fire ring, Spike ignored me.”

      If the participle is allowed to “dangle” away from the subject (Spike), the meaning is changed, sometimes with humorous results.

      Example: “Spike ignored me sniffing around our neighbor’s fire ring.”

      More examples:

      “Driving the PTV, I see a pronghorn.”
      “I see a pronghorn driving the PTV.”

      “Howling like a wolf, Mark looks at the moon.”
      “Mark looks at the moon howling like a wolf.”

      Sometimes I intentionally dangle a participle in my writing, just for the fun of it.

    • Tesaje says:

      Churchill satirized it best when he said That is something “up with which I will not put!” The dangling participle is won’t put up with.

  25. Msjo says:

    If someone parked that close to me, when the whole area was open, I’d be tempted to knock on their door before they get settled, Bible in hand, and tell them that I’d had a dream that The Lord was sending someone in need of saving, to camp next to me, and here they were! All the time, acting like I was trying to come in, uninvited….. :). (Of course, I would probably shush that temptation, because people thoughtless enough to park that close might be dangerous, in addition to stupid….)

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      Hi, Msjo,

      I think what sometimes happens is a person will park their RV so the views out their windows are unobstructed and lovely. However, the side of their RV where there is no window or a window they don’t look out of much is placed facing another person’s campsite. Rarely going outside, they don’t realize how intrusive their RV is for the other person.

      Or maybe it’s an inability to see things from a perspective other than their own.

      • Tesaje says:

        Most likely it is the latter plus the herding instinct. They can’t comprehend that a lone camper would not want company. Makes you wonder what the heck they are doing out there…

  26. Jim says:

    New visitor to you site and I must commend you on your work. . . I like it. I especially enjoy the photo’s as I too love to sit in the desert and watch the sky. To me there is great entertainment value and peace in just watching the sky change and doing absolutely nothing.

    Keep up the good work.

    Jim

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      Yes, Jim, I agree with you. The desert sky is an every-changing source of wonder for anyone willing and able to sit back and see it.

      I’m too lazy this morning to check if you’re the same “new” Jim who appeared here recently, so . . . Welcome! I’m happy you found me and the crew and also that you took the time to write.

      Thanks for your kind words about my blog.

  27. AZ Jim says:

    I see you are collecting Jim’s. Hey this dangling participle thing bothers me. I read they arrested a man in a park somewhere because of his dangling participle (or something like that). Would I kid you? Your moon tumbling down the mountain is on my desktop now. You keep topping yourself so I have to keep changing.

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      Like I’ve said before, I never met a Jim I didn’t like.

      I do appreciate you going by the name of AZ Jim. I hope the other Jims do something similar (hint, hint). I need help keeping my foot out of my mouth.

      I have the moon with branches reaching toward it as my present desktop.

  28. Jeannie in WA says:

    Great pictures! Away from that subject…do you still give Spike the Salmon Oil for his coat? Does he have Seborrheaic dermatitis, or flaky patches on his skin? Is he getting better? Thanks.

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      Hi, Jeannie,

      I’m still giving him salmon oil. I saw slight improvement shortly after I started giving him that, but not much since. He doesn’t have any of the conditions you mentioned, just dull and rough coat.

    Hi Sue, I had to go away after reading this and think about it for a bit. Like you, I love being by myself or just with my husband and feel like my space is invaded when others park too close. However I had it explained to me one time, that some people do not understand the pleasure in being alone. That RV may have thought he was providing you with the security of knowing someone else was there even if it was just for the night. I don’t understand this but have been told that many feel this way. He may have been, in his own way trying to reach out. At least that sounds better than, he was a jerk who didn’t care about you and just parked where he wanted.

      Hi, lindale,

      Yeah, that sounds better but I don’t think it’s reality. If he was trying to reach out, he would’ve waved at me or something, right?

      It would be nice to think the man was caring about me and my welfare, but I sincerely doubt it. If I needed the “security” of nearby neighbors, I would’ve parked near neighbors. That should be obvious to anyone seeing me far off by myself.

      I’m more inclined to think he wanted the security of being near me or he was oblivious to anything but his own situation.

      You’re absolutely correct when you write “some people do not understand the pleasure in being alone.”

    Hi Sue. I boat in the Chesapeake Bay and you would be surprised how many boaters will come right up to where your boat is anchored and throw out their anchor just a few feet away when they have the entire bay to anchor in! I just can’t figure some people out. Anyway, great pictures and I have a question. If I purchase something on Amazon that you don’t have a link to in your blog, can I enter something that will give you credit for my order? Thanks for the blog-love it! Dex

      Hi, Dexter,

      Clingers! On land and sea!

      I don’t understand this cluster mentality either and I probably never will. 🙂 I’m not a herd animal. Apparently there are those that are.

      You don’t have to enter anything to give me credit. All you have to do is go to Amazon from here . . . through any link I post, any ad in the margins, the search box, the link at the top righthand corner, any links on the Shopping Links pages.

      All those things are embedded with a code you can’t see. That’s how Amazon knows to give me credit. How very thoughtful of you to care that I make a commission on your orders. Thank you, Dex! You helped pay for my much anticipated Kindle paperwhite . . .

    Well/good…a real thorn in the side of most educators. The other thorn is the slow death of the letters “ly!”
