We’ve finally made it to a place where the weather is just right. Ahhhh. It only took months to find, and now that we’re here, we’re leaving on Monday. Why you ask. Well, we’ve been diagnosed with a disease known as “the once-sees” Once we get to where we want to be, and once we’ve experienced what we wanted, we are ready to move on. It’s a difficult but curable disease , only with the right amount of a little bit of everything, and all things just right. Ok, so I am just poking fun at ourselves and how silly we are about things sometimes. Currently our plan is to go West, see the sis and head up the 101 from there and experience some of natures awesomeness that occurs in February and March.
Thursday we decided to head southeast to experience the Old West! We first stopped into Bisbee, AZ, a town known for eclectic art, and a stair system that runs through the town that would put any legs to work.
We weren’t in Bisbee very long, as we wanted to get to Tombstone and see the reenacted gun fight at the O.K. Corral.
I was under the impression that they did a little skit out in the middle of the street at 2 pm daily, come 2 o’clock the actors were just standing in the street and I though it was going down any minute, then they head into a building…what? We follow them in and find out it costs $10 a person to see a half our show about the gunfight.
We decided when in Tombstone, why not. It was entertaining, with some funny parts, like when the drunk bad guy says, “You have till the count of potato to get out here” but the guns, although shooting blanks were very loud.
We had a real nice time soaking up the history and we became outlaws ourselves!
We also ran into Wyatt Earp after the show downtown and he just kept hounding Mitch to take a picture with him, so finally we gave in, ha ha. You can tell how excited he is by the expression on his face.
This week we also took the dogs for a hike on the outskirts of Tucson where there is boondocking available.
Yesterday we decided to give the dogs baths at a do it yourself dog wash place called the Dirty Dawgs in Tucson. It was really clean, super nice lady and the shampoo is all natural.
The dogs smell so good, it’s a nice change to give them kisses and not have to hold my breath . Boy did they need it after the month of wet, stinky mud in mississippi!
