Spending time with Friends

I’ve had a real hard time with this post, I have been trying to put it together for  three days. In between fighting with my computer,.. more on that later.
We just spent three days with our friends Al and Kelly at their home in Congress, if you read their blog you know all about out visit. Check out  Nov. 10 – 11 – 12th
Al took so many amazing pictures and wrote so well about our visit.You can see them
Here then click forward for the next two days. .
We are pretty private people and would normally never stay in anybody's yard especially with three dogs, but  they made us and our dogs feel so welcome. Sophie, Louie and Jake had  fun playing with Pheebs, and of course loved Al and Kelly. Jake was,allowed to visit in their house (most people are understandably not thrilled about 110lb dog in their living room)
Kelly took this picture with my new camera, also the next one that shows my graceful descent.
I have no idea what cows eat in the desert, but they look healthy, even the calf beside his mom
We had such a fun time with them, going out to the amazing desert near their house, checking out the old cemetery and going to Yarnell  where we met Gaelyn  who is a ranger,who spends her summers at the Grand Canyon, and her winters travelling, last year was South. Africa.
We were sad to leave, but hopefully we will meet up again this winter and spend some more time together.
After we left congress we drove to Ogilby Rd  just 12 miles west of Yuma in California , we  have stayed here  each winter  on our way to Borrego Springs.
We were just setting up when Denise  pulled in, she usually stays at Pilot Knob, but decided to join us. It was good to see her.
And  Little Benny
Denise has been having computer problems and had just found out she had a virus. She thinks she got it on Oct 21 which is when she noticed she was using way too many GB .Because we email back and forth I checked my anti virus program which is Windows Essentials, sure enough there was a Trojan Virus  the program caught and put  in quarantine on Oct. 21. I thought  I should run the MalwareBytes  program which  turned out to be missing (?)  I reinstalled it but it brought with it three different programs which I didn’t want, and yes I checked to see if there were any add ons and  read the fine print, and it still happened . It took forever to get rid of them.
I am pretty happy with my new camera, I like the zoom a lot.


Well this is interesting ......this post wouldn't publish, until I tried to post another last night. I guess it doesn't
matter, I'll just add we are on our way to Borrego this morning.
