While Mary and I are taking care of business here at her home…there is little “new stuff” to Blog about daily. So I’ve decided to share with you some of my favorite photos from our recent 298 day, 16,000+ mile RV trip around the United States.
Since scenery and people snapshot-type photos require little special photography skills…and being limited by the abilities of my digital camera…I none the less took some photos that I really liked. They are presented in no special order of favoritism.
Today’s photo was taken at the Chiricahua National Monument in the wilderness of southeastern Arizona, January 14, 2010.
Here’s today’s photo…
In other news…
99 degrees yesterday, fortunately there was only 12% humidity. Nonetheless after an early morning walk and a trip to the dump, by 10:00 AM we stayed inside the house, which meant more reading. I began reading the largest physical-sized book of my life. I bought it at the Submarine Museum in Groton, Connecticut in August. It’s about the first 100 years (1900-2000) of the United States Submarine Service. It’s 352, 11×14 pages and weighs 6.5 pounds. It’s so large I couldn’t comfortably read it in the motorhome, so I saved it to read now.
It’s so heavy I have to set it on a pillow in my lap to read. Because of the large pages with large type and many photographs it’s an easy read and I read 105 pages yesterday. In the 1960’s I worked at General Dynamics, Electric Boat Division at Groton, Connecticut and worked on several of the submarines mentioned in this book including the USS Nautilus, SSN 541 the world’s first nuclear powered submarine and the USS George Washington, SSBM 588, the world’s first nuclear ballistic missile submarine.
The forecast is for 101 degrees, so I’ll do lots more reading today!
