Losing Memory, Focus And Attention?

 

As we start to age, these symptoms may start to occur.

 

If you are a regular follower of my blog, you will remember a year or so ago I finished a weight loss program where I lost 55.5 pounds. One of my guiding lights during this progress was watching Dr. Eric Berg’s videos on the Keto Diet. He has MANY videos about how to maintain a healthy lifestyle.

 

I ran across this video yesterday and if you are experiencing any of the above mentioned symptoms, you may find some useful information in this 5:40 video…

 

 

 

 

 

 

Here is the link to his YouTube Channel where you can see his many videos. I hope you will find them of value to yourself. Enjoy!  🙂

Enjoying nice weather is another joy in the life of a full-time RVer!

The motorhome is parked at American Legion Post #19 in Yuma, Arizona. I expect to depart here March 1st.

 

 

What snowbirds do on a Sunday afternoon in Yuma, Arizona?

 

The answer is about 500 of them go to VFW Post #8242 from 2-5 PM to listen and dance to country music.

 

The best band is Keepin’ It Country and they play on Sunday and Monday. Other bands play on other days.

 

Since yesterday was my last Sunday in Yuma for this winter season, I went out there and spent an enjoyable 1.5 hours listening to some great country music.

 

Here are some of the photos I took…

And finally a video…

 

 

 

 

It’s been years since I have danced. But when the prettiest and slenderest gal in the joint ASKED ME to dance, how could I refuse?

 

After the dance we chatted for a few minutes and as soon as she found out I was a nomad, conversation over! That how life is for a nomad!  🙂

 

 

 

 

I hope you enjoyed the photos and video.

Forecast for today is sunny and 63 degrees. Cool for Yuma.

BLACKBERRY PICKING, PLUS…

DSC07428 (Copy)

Norma, Jose and the kids missed the family & friends reunion, but we both were able to squeeze in an afternoon for a bit of berry picking and barbeque Sunday last.

DSC07419 (Copy)

Jose was scheduled to work, but decided he needed the day off more than the work. He commented on how quiet and peaceful it is here, especially when we walked up the canyon and got into the berry patch. We couldn’t have asked for better weather. Six year old Abbie got something picky caught in her sandals. Help dad!

 

DSC07417 (Copy)

The berries were fat and plentiful and early this year.

DSC07418 (Copy)

Doug and Jose did most of the picking and we put a quart of berries in my freezer, and another in Jose’s ice chest.

DSC07421 (Copy)

Anthony agreed that berries and ice cream is delicious.

DSC07416 (Copy)

Little miss Abbie had a  good time with some hair ornaments that were headed to the Good Will. She has the most beautiful, lush hair you’ve ever seen. Of course, I’m jealous since I inherited my father’s thin strands instead of my mother’s beautiful tresses.

It was nice to take an afternoon away from a far too busy schedule.  I’m still fielding work progress on the Oregon property. Yesterday, I did a final program on the Quyle Kiln’s 60th Anniversary for Public Access Television. Today, I’ll finish a written piece for Ceramics Magazine. I finished my inventory for insurance, a massive photo project, that took five days to complete between refining the watering system to withstand the water reduction requirements of the drought. (I always take on projects instead of saying no.) And, finally, I can think about what I’m going to pack to return to the Motor Home. I’m looking forward to being back on the road.

West Texas

The motorhome is still parked at the Fraternal Order of Eagles Airee #3245. This is my fourth day here. I had planned to leave yesterday, but decided to stay an extra day. But, so far as I know right now, I’ll be departing later this morning. The border into West Texas is about 10 miles from my current location.

As always you may left click upon an image to see an enlarged view and then click once again to see an even larger view…

Mary sent this to me in an Email a few days back. Since I’ll be crossing into West Texas this morning, I thought I’d share it with you…

========================================

I sure hope this comes  through.  Wyman, the photographer, used to live in the old jail in  Benjamin, TX.  The photo of the coiled rattlesnake appeared on the  cover of a wildlife magazine in the 80s.  He said, there were times  he crawled a long way on his belly to get a good shot of a wild  animal.  The music was nice also, didn’t make me want to put it on  mute!!!

The  music is by Doug Smith. Doug is from Petersburg , Texas and lives south of town. Doug  plays by ear- He cannot read music, but has many CDs. A pickup accident  left Doug paralyzed and he does not play anymore. Most of  the pictures were taken in the rolling plains ( cap rock to Seymour , the  Fork, 6666, and Waggoner Ranches. There are some scenes in Palo Duro Canyon  .

Please take a moment and  view….I don’t know if I’ve ever seen such fantastic use of music set  to amazing animal and landscape photography.  The changes in the  tempo perfectly compliment the scenery.  It is simply a beautiful  portrayal of our magnificent home  state!

TIME IS FLEETING

Closer to leaving Murphys and joining Jim gives me pause to realize how much and how little I got accomplished in my time at home. I didn’t catch up with everyone I wanted to see or everything I wanted to do. Yet, I finished some complicated projects. There is never enough time in our hurried lives. It makes sense to stop and smell the roses.

I took time out to have friends for dinner. We call Paul, The Famous Paul Moeller, because he is known by everyone in the county. He has videotaped every event to the tune of 3 shows a week since 1983. Unstoppable, at 84, we know he has to slow down, but doesn’t. And Pam Quyle, hard-working, involved with everything that is art. She has been in this county the longest, from childhood. She is owner of Quyle Kilns, and meets people from everywhere in the world on their way to Big Trees. She educates everyone who walks in her shop and has this unlimited memory of everyone in the county, especially connected to the old-time families. Always finding a home for someone who needs a place to stay because she has this big  heart and  fields  a steady stream of people  in need of help.

And Margo, the most popular and well-known woman in Murphys. You can’t walk down the street with her because she gets stopped too many times. Everybody knows Margo. She pours wine for Chatom Vineyards and has as many local friends as out-of-town friends, and many from other countries. She speaks German, French and English.  She doesn’t have to work and keeps planning a second retirement.  Chatom doesn’t want her to leave.

I promised cactus to anyone who wants a piece, so Pam took my picture hacking off a hunk for Margo who loves cactus. Still more than half of it to go. Any takers?

As I look at my pictures these past couple weeks from the new camera, they seem mushy and over bright. Slightly out of focus. I’ve got to test it and see if I can discover the problem before the  warranty is up.  And, I ordered plane  tickets for my return to New Mexico , and now the things undone loom larger.  Still, can’t forget the  roses.

FATHER PAST AND PRESENT

My oldest son was the first of my children to have a child. I was so surprised how much I enjoyed seeing my son be a father and watching his children grow.  Celebrating Father’s Day this year with he and his family was a special treat for me since we live a state apart.  His oldest will be headed off to college in a couple of months and we all feel the shift in our lives as we remember early childhood and now the prospect of the first one leaving home.

We spent time  in the pool and played cards. Ken barbecued flank steak that had been marinated for 24 hours. Laurie made a fresh corn salad and Ken’s favorite cake. His boys bought him a video he had been wanting to watch.

We looked at a family photo album, did some reminiscing. In this hot climate, staying inside or near the pool is everyone’s favorite option.

After dessert we watched The Presidents Speech, an excellent movie on video. What is the normal way to celebrate Father’s Day?  Not sure what that might be. It’s all about family. Father’s are always special and we honor the work and guidance and loyalty that a father represents.  We remember our fathers past and are glad to celebrate those that are still with us.  Beautiful.
