Desert scene inside the Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument.
Today started kind of chilly and cloudy, but after lunch it cleared up and became a pretty decent day.
I ordered something from Amazon Wednesday afternoon and I got it General Delivery at the Post Office in Ajo before lunch today. I'm always amazed how well Amazon's shipping works and even more amazed how quickly they can get something to a little town like Ajo where I don't even live.
When you order something from Amazon they have a page where they give you a choice of which location that you've used in the past you would like your package shipped to, Ajo makes my 18th location. I don't get rid of any past locations because I may be back there again one day so I just keep collecting locations.
The package I received contained a Hohner harmonica called the Special 20. Now I have no idea how to play the harmonica but there's a whole lot of information on YouTube about how to play the harmonica and the thing is so small how hard can it be?
Since I cultivate the look and demeanor of a homeless bum, I figured a harmonica would be the perfect addition to my homeless bum persona. I also figured if I get good at playing it maybe people will give me money while I'm standing on the sidewalk, and if I'm never able to do anything with it except make screeching noises, which is probably what will happen, they will pay me even more to go away. It's a win-win situation.
I gave considerable thought to what instrument I should learn to play based on my current lifestyle and it came down to, the Tuba, a Piano, or a Harmonica. The Tuba would probably be so noisy it would run off all my neighbors.... Which is the reason the Tuba was at the top of my list of instruments to buy. I got some measurements of a piano and determined that my slide wouldn't close with a Grand Piano in the living room, which was a shame because I really wanted to learn how to play the boogie-woogie on a piano.
In the end the harmonica made the most sense because even though it's probably not loud enough to run off the neighbors at least I can still close my living room slide. and with a few hours of study I will have an extensive repertoire of cool music such as The Camptown races, and Oh Susanna that will enable me to entertain my family for hours.
Another desert scene.
One of the boondocking areas a couple miles south of Why. There was a lot of room here but it was too crowded for my taste.
