If lambs are a sign of Spring, then Spring has arrived in Blythe!
About a week ago, on the way into town, the crew and I see a mama ewe cleaning up her just-born lamb. I only slow the Perfect Tow Vehicle for a quick glance and don’t stop for photos, not wanting to cause alarm.
Yesterday, on the way to town, the scene is much different.
Lambs all over the place!
The photo (above) shows only one group. There are several more across a large field. I would like to sit in the PTV and watch them, but after a few minutes the moms become nervous.
At the first sign of that, we continue on our way.

The PTV has a new starter!
Reggie, Roger and I walk the sidewalks of Blythe while the work is being done. I don’t take photos because the light is too harsh.
The labor for installing the starter is $90.
Juan’s Auto Repair Shop is a “cash only” business.
I’m not aware of that until I ask Juan if he wants payment with “check or credit card.” I don’t have ninety dollars in cash with me. All I have is twenty-five which I give him.
I promise Juan I’ll return with the rest of the cash.
I offer to leave a check with him. “You don’t need to do that,” he says smiling.
I gotta’ say… Juan is a hard-working guy with the most consistently cheerful attitude I’ve ever come across. Later we return with the balance owed.

I almost never drive after dark any more.
There’s no need to. Night attractions don’t interest me. In fact, we’re rarely on the road at sunset. Maybe that’s why, as we roll across the desert toward home, the boys want to look out the window at the special light of the setting sun.
First Roger . . . .
Then Reggie joins him.
“It’s a beautiful world, isn’t it, guys.”
