We love the desert. They call people like us Desert Rats. If you had asked Al 15 years ago if he liked the desert, you would have gotten an emphatic no. But when we got together 11 years ago I started taking him to the desert of southern Utah, were he quickly fell in love with the landscape, the colors, and the feel of the desert. The rhythm of the desert. Back then we would camp in our truck camper in far away places, enjoying the silence, and breathing the air. Now, we fit the rhythm into a day that involves our work lives too.
Lately we have had high winds, and chilly temps so working outside and carving is not an option for Al. He has been working on some fantastic digital art pieces though. I will share when he gets some completely done. I work on my photos, the blog, the art show promoter stuff. But no matter what, we still go with the rhythm.
Evenings and mornings are all about walking with the dogs, well mostly Torrey. She especially loves, and expects evening walkies. The winds lately have made some cute photos of her.
This is what she would look like with ears that stand up.
We love old stuff, any old stuff. But old cars, we REALLY love old cars.
Last week on our drive into Yuma we passed this funky little place on the side of the road. This road basically goes through lettuce, broccoli and onion fields. And a big date farm. So it’s not exactly on the main road to anywhere. The sign proudly announced it as the Cloud Museum, with “Probably the largest collection of Model T’s in the world.” We couldn’t stop then, but went back a few days later to check it out.
We payed our 5 bucks and were greeted by the very nice owner and his dogs. He told us to wander where we wanted, and let him know if we had questions. So off we went.
