Quartzite--My Birthday

Quartzite, Arizona
BLM Land Plomosa Road

I woke up this morning with the sound of our generator running.  Thank you, Harry for starting it.  

Misty called shortly after we were up to wish me Happy Birthday.  Nicky and Nikki called right after I hung up.  I never did get my hair dried with the hair dryer as it was completely dry once I got off the phone.  

The wind was blowing, and I hadn't had any time to fly my kite the whole time we've been here.  It went up very fast.
It went to the end of my line in no time at all.

Here's another one of our favorite dogs.

Dave McNair drove over in his truck and asked if we needed any water.  He had a water bladder in the bed of his truck and had plenty of water.  We've done well, rationing our water consumption.  We still have 1/3 of a tank left.  

Barb, Dave and Paisley Burtrom came over with a birthday present for me.

If we hadn't been on our way out to eat, those brownies would have been gone immediately.  

We hadn't been to the Grubstake in a while and decided that's where I wanted to go for dinner.  
The guys had water, and the girls had margaritas.

They were very good.

Look at the size of this fish and I ordered a two piece dinner.  I cleaned my plate, it was delicious.

We had a great time.  Shay called to wish me happy birthday, but it was so noisy, I told her I'd call her later.

When we returned Curtis knocked  at our door and had a big jar of some of Stephanie's tangerine and lemon marmalade for my birthday.  I can't wait to try it.  

We'll be seeing many of our friends again at the Winter Blast, the Good Sam Rally and or the Escapade.  

It's been a great week.  It seems like every year we come, we have a better and better time.
