A whole lot of catching up to do.....

I just love the way the sand parked itself on the floor of my sandrail

This old motorhome stopped by to visit a friend in Quartzsite.....I was told he rarely made it into town.....mostly stayed way out in the woods.

I was rather proud of this.....I wrapped the handle with leather......much better!!!

Some guys have the life!!!!!

This trailer has been out in Quartzsite a few years that I know of......never saw anyone home.  This parks near one of my favorite places.....the

A nice meal with a few of my friends

Do either of these guys look familiar? Arron was the young man who knocked on my door a few winters ago to ask if he could see my pet spider......ran into him and his family by was a great surprise.

I was able to take Arron out for a long ride in the sandrail......we found this huge vane of quartze......Gold????

Sandy and Erica, Arron's mother

This old Hippy is Bill of Bill and Norma Sanders.....we met the year before and spend a great deal of time together again this year. of the kindest persons I ever met....even if she disaproves of my spelling.

I got this off the internet.....just thought I include it because....

Sandy and I visited a great ghost town.....more to come later.....I'll throw in a few photos now.

This pulled in to the parking lot were Sandy and I stopped for lunch one day.

The Airfloat trailer has been given the title of the first travel trailer.......I love these things no matter the condition.

Bet this would fit in my toyhauler

I was able to go to the NASCAR track in Phoenix....too bad the drivers never showed up to race......but....I have now been to a NASCAR track!!!!

Finally after many months I was able to get back into my blog to post!!!!!!

I finally got a chance yesterday to get back into my blog.

After a whole new learning curve I was able to re-learn how to post photos......we are talking hours of frustration here......

I took the Hartley Bobber out for a show and shine last weekend.....broke down just as I was pulling into register......ended up calling Sandy to see if she could grab the little trailer, some straps and rescue me.

She was a sweetheart....she dropped everything and ran after the trailer......she had never hooked a trailer up so it was a bit of a nail bitter and sure helped that Derrick my 13 year old grandson was there to do all the things needed to hook up the trailer......THANKS DERRICK YOU SAVED THE DAY!!!!!!!
It sure helped ease my worries when she was able to send a few photos......wonder how we ever got by before smart phone and internet!

Here it sits......pretty bad for a bike with less than 100 miles.....after it cooled down and got trailered home it started right up and then died again after about 2 miles.....another trailer ride.....I think it is a bad ignition module....if so that is an easy fix!!!

The bike did get lots of attention that feeds my ego and makes me feel all young and!!!!

 Aden my almost three years old great grand son and his little sister were with G.G. (Sandy...G.=great G.=grandma) so they got to come visit too.

Aden was not too excited with the motorcycles or the cars, but he sure liked the jungle gym....about all he could do was climb the stairs and then climb back down....

Playing on the playground equipment is much more fun than looking at old cars for a 3 year old!!! 

He is the moment Aden caught eye of a little teardrop trailer he could play much for the stairs!!!!

There is a guy I have seen at a few car shows  who drives a odd homemade MGTD ish car with a home made teardrop trailer....he is a very nice laid back sort of fellow and I always enjoy seeing him. He had set the trailer up next to the playground with a few toys inside....he posted a few signs inviting kids of all ages to go inside and play.  Aden had a ball and was not happy when he had to leave.

Thought I would pick up with some of the unique things around Quartzsite from the winter of 2014-2015

I always get a kick out of things you don't get to see every day
I ended up making friends with the young couple who owned this buggy, they ran a tent that sold solar and satellite tv stuff.....very nice folks

I thought this buggy was a bit different than most of them with this grille.

Notice I rarely take photos of normal stuff......LOL
