Rainy Days

I found myself to be a nosy neighbor the other day so walked across the street to see what Helen was doing.  How clever!  She is painting wine bottles and then sprinkling them with fancy glitter as the first step in making pretty centerpieces for the tennis club Cancer Awareness tournament.  No need for you to save bottles for her as there are many many many empty bottles available in this park!  :)

I went to the show called "Harvest of the Desert" Friday night.  Thank you, Dave, for an excellent presentation!  Dave is a Native American naturalist and told the many uses of our desert plants and the biology that makes them useful.  He has the talent to intersperse enough humor to keep us well entertained.

BEWARE!!  Another nasty virus is circulating in the cyberworld.  You may have heard about it on TV the other day.  If you get a popup from the FBI or the police that claim they've tracked you to illegal websites and request a fine....just ignore.  Do NOT continue.  It may even take over your webcam and show a photo of you as you are at your computer.  Be assured this is indeed a virus and is not law enforcement.  

RAIN!  Again.  Our desert loves the rain and we've certainly received a LOT of it this last week.  The sad news is that it prohibits our outdoor play time but we should have some beautiful desert flowers come spring time.  I hope you're around to see the desert poppies at Picacho Peak  later this season.

The iPad Users Group met again this Sunday in the Ocotillo Room.  Thank you, Mary, for giving an interesting presentation on Evernote.

Mark your calendar for early tomorrow morning about 7:30 am.  John Ross from "FUN"tastic Ballooning will be launching his hot air balloon from the ballfield......AND.....if all goes as planned, I will be his passenger!  My camera will be fully charged and ready for some aerial photos.  I'm excited!  I warned John that any additional passengers had better be short skinny people or we'll never get off the ground!  :)

Received some cute emails this week to share with you:


It was the end of the day when I parked my police van in front of the station. As I gathered my equipment, my K-9 partner, Jake, was barking, and I saw a little boy staring in at me. 'Is that a dog you got back there?' he asked.
'It sure is,' I replied.
Puzzled, the boy looked at me and then towards the back of the van. Finally he said, 'What'd he do? 

A little girl was watching her parents dress for a party. When she saw her dad donning his tuxedo, she warned, 'Daddy, you shouldn't wear that suit.'
'And why not, darling?'
'You know that it always gives you a headache the next morning.' 

A little boy opened the big family Bible. He was fascinated as he fingered through the old pages. Suddenly, something fell out of the Bible. He picked up the object and looked at it. What he saw was an old leaf that had been pressed in between the pages.
'Mama, look what I found,' the boy called out.
'What have you got there, dear?'
With astonishment in the young boy's voice, he answered, 'I think it's Adam's underwear!'
