Here we are in Quartzsite, Arizona. We're all set up in the same spot that we've parked in the last two years. Cool. We love this spot along the dry wash. Notice that you can see Bonehead's likeness made out of stained glass in the door. And the memorial we made for Bonehead is here and that is special to us. Before we left last time we were here, Dan had planted two little cacti in her memory, I had made a small white cross out of white quartz under her favorite tree, and we put a little sign with her name on it. One of the little cactus was gone. It looked like some animal had done something with it as there were holes burrowed into the earth around the memorial. Thats ok. It didn't look like someone vandalized it. I took all the white quartz that had surrounded the cactus and made the cross bigger and fatter and put the little sign back at the head of the cross. We both feel good that we had made this place in her memory. She used to lay under this tree all the time where the cross is. Dan had cleared out all the brush and cut the low hanging branches. It was her sanctuary. Her place to escape. Bonehead loved walking out to the tree alone and just lay and chill by herself. We miss her. Ok. Enough of Miss Bonehead. You can always read about her in the archives.View of Bonehead's tree. You can just barely see the white cross. The view of our home from her tree. You can see that we've made our place comfortable outside. I think Dan might put out one more large mat at the first door of our rig. I'm using the back door as the steps to the first door are really high. Dan is gonna make a wooden step for me. Anyway, we put out our table, lawn chairs, and my rocking chair. Yup. A rocking chair. I decided that as long as we weren't bringing the Harley with us, there was now room to bring my rocking chair. Dan put both my flamingos out for me. One is dressed for Halloween. And we put the tomato plants out in the sun. They all look really sick after being in a freeze in Oregon. But since they've been out in the sun, they are coming back to life. There is new growth and little tomatoes. Woohoo for sunshine helping them!
