There's a surprise that opens up with every click of the pic..... Surprise!!! It's just a bigger pic.
Tucson Arizona sunrise..... And It's already 70° outside! Oh the humanity.
I went for a walk around the Fairgrounds today to see what was going on, and there didn't appear to be much of anything going on, so I walked back home to start getting the Arctic Fox cooled off before it gets too hot after lunch. I have found that if I leave the Arctic Fox locked up until about lunch, it's almost impossible to cool it off until dinner time. And by then it doesn't matter because the temperatures are dropping down into the 60s by then anyway.
I forgot to mention yesterday that I had two places that I considered spending the night on the way to the Pima County Fairgrounds. One was the Elks club in Gila Bend, that you don't have to be an Elk to stay at overnight, it's donation only. The other place, in case that one didn't work out, was a big truck stop only a couple miles outside of Gila Bend where they have a small RV Park, and free camping just outside the RV Park.
Well things weren't going my way when the big Elks club parking lot was closed up and empty. And the Shell truck stop had been completely redesigned and they did away with the overnight RV parking as far as I could tell, so that didn't leave me with many choices except to press on and make it to Tucson. Which is why I made it here quicker than anticipated.
A bit of good news today. I've heard that the New Mexico state parks are actually going to reimburse those of us for the camping time we missed while having the out-of-state annual park pass during the Bat flu pandemic. How they're going to do that isn't clear, but the fact that there going to do "something" makes me feel a whole lot better about the way there going to handle the "loss of enjoyment" in the bat flu situation.
The roses are just about done for the year. There's very few left and their looking a bit worse for wear.
The indoor horse event center is getting a brand-new floor.....If only there was a horse to enjoy it.
