Drying out

Well, we're drying out from the flood Thursday night. Dean did make it home, our Buick LeSabre went through without much problem. Our UPS man got stuck yesterday and I filled in the big holes he left in the road. This morning it looked like someone else got stuck but we could get through with the car, did bounce some. Dean plans on trying to fix the 4 wheel drive part of our pickup because it will not make it through the gully, just too soft of sand.

I decided to upload photos of me (now you'll know what I look like!) and Dean at a Salt River Canyon overlook northeast of Tucson about 100+ miles. This place is just amazing!! This is on the way to my parent's summer place in New Mexico. There were quite a few switchbacks in the road and very slow speeds! Except for the lack of pine trees the road reminded me of the Beartooth Highway between Red Lodge, MT and Yellowstone Park. That is one of the most beautiful drives you'll ever see! We lived in Red Lodge back in late 1984 to late 1988. We seen the 1988 fires of Yellowstone first hand. Terrible!

I planted 2 poplar trees today and boy, was it hot and humid!! I was drenched with sweat. We did get a little shower that cooled things off about 10 degrees. Miss Piggy, our yellow manx cat, got caught outside and when she finally got in she was so mad! Like it was all my fault it rained! What a hoot! Dean was changing the oil on the car but he was in my dad's shop with the swamp cooler running, dry and cool. Hopefully he'll have time to work on the pickup. Thursday morning I get a manicure/pedicure then Friday we fly out to Dallas for the Promise Keepers convention. Gotta look good!

Yesterday I made a couple of Knock Knock joke books to sell and finished some card fronts for a swap on Paper Wings. Tomorrow we plan on going into Tucson to see Journey to the Center of the Earth in 3D. So, may not have any cards or whatever to post soon. Hope you're having a great weekend!!
