You read right! And there was more...so much more!
|Heading south on I-10 from Phoenix/Mesa - Monday morning!|
|Rolling in to Dogpound South - winter home of JB and Brenda|
One hour after leaving our RV park, we rolled into their lovely spot in the Maricopa County desert. Having read and shared many email and blog comments,these past few years, meeting them was like meeting old friends. It felt that way instantly....and remained so throughout a most pleasing afternoon.
|L-R Brenda, JB and Jeanette - Two roses between a really nice fella!|
|We were invited for lunch and ended up dining, 1st class.|
|There were four identical plates like this, in the photo above! That was one 'big country' lunch, let me tell you!|
|Out from the pens came two of their horses.|
When I mentioned horse sense (in an earlier blog), 'Blue' had the good sense to not buck me off. He was calm and happy. I think that was because his handler was nearby. Jeanette fared well too.
|I wonder if JB was whispering to 'Blue' to be good to me?|
|When all saddle up, Jeanette and I mounted up.|
|The helmets will protect our noggin should we fall off.......and the saddles sure felt different than our customary ride.|
|It felt good to try out a different saddle.|
|Alright.....enough of this horsin' around!|
|Hey you two....we think this ride suits you well......even with them western hats on!|
|A fitting day.....|
Visiting with JB and Brenda was memorable. We talked about so many interesting subjects and just enjoyed the sharing of information. And, we learned a thing or two!
These folks know how to put out the welcome mat and they make folks feel right at home. It was fun. For that we thank you! Lunch?.....well, it was first class. We look forward to our next visit.
Jeanette and I remarked on some of the similarities in personality between JB and my brother in law, Rick, married to my sister, Paulette. They own a cow/calf operation, two hours east from the city of Edmonton, Alberta.
Rolling into this Phoenix country has opened a diary full of fun meetings with fellow travelers. What a treat!
