Bridget has a boyfriend . . . .
And it ain’t Spike!
Here’s how it all went down . . .
First I notice Bridget prancing more than usual whenever we arrive at Dale’s camp. Hmm . . . What’s that all about? She dances around Dale’s legs until he bends down and acknowledges her presence with some sweet talk and petting (not heavy). While this goes on, Spike has his nose in Dale’s food supply, so he’s clueless.
When we all board the Perfect Tow Vehicle to ride into Yuma, Bridget makes her move.
She wiggles her ample behind into the passenger seat with Dale!
Uh-oh. This is getting out of hand.
I glance back at Spike on the bench seat. Asleep. The poor guy is oblivious to what is going on right under his nose.
“Bridget, are you in love?” I ask.
She gives me the so-what-if-I-am-look and leans on Dale some more. Well, girl, you’re headed for a fall because Dale is leaving soon and you better not expect him to call or write . . . .
In other news . . .
I look out the side window of the Best Little Trailer to see a white SUV towing a Casita parked in the road. That must be Kathy and Gil! (Kathy comments on this blog as “kgdan.”)
Kathy recently wrote that they’d be coming over to Mittry Lake from the Phoenix area and that Gil is anxious to put the Port-a-Bote in the water to do some fishing.
The crew and I run out to greet them.
Unfortunately it’s cold and windy. We look up at the blue sky lightly veiled with a few thin, white clouds.
“At least it doesn’t look like rain,” I say, trying to see the bright side.
Gil goes into their Casita, comes out, and hands me a present. It looks like a wall hanging or a rug, tan with yellow and white accents.
“Do you know what that’s made of?” he asks with a grin.
I study it for a moment.
“Plastic bags?” I reply.
Turns out Gil has learned how to crochet plastic bags. I thank him for the gift. It’s a pretty neat item!
Here’s their rig in their campsite which is up the lane from ours.
Update on Dale . . .
Dale realizes he isn’t well prepared for desert travel with the water container he has. I give him two of my one-gallon jugs so he can carry more. Which presents the problem . . .
How to carry full jugs of water on his bike.
His sleeping bag, mat, tarp, tent, and backpack packed with clothes, food, and supplies — all go above the rear wheel. I give him one of my milk crates. Later I return to Dale’s camp and he’s attached the milk crate to the handle bars, making a handy basket in which to carry his water supply and other items. It’s perfect!
By evening an Arizona cold snap has arrived.
Dale makes a campfire for me and the crew. This is his last night at Mittry Lake.
Coming up in the next episode of “rvsue and her canine crew” . . .
Heartbreak for Bridget! Will Spike find out? Will he forgive her?
