Well yesterday morning we are sitting in the bus drinking our coffee and people watching when the guy in front of us comes out and starts cleaning off the back window of his car. Turns out that what we thought was dew was in fact frost. Brrrrr!!!! Shocked  We  go by the, "if we see frost we are outta here" rule. Good thing we were planning on leaving in a couple of hours anyway! Smiley  Made the run back down to Yuma and are glad to be back in the banana belt. Grin

Clifford, i knew when it cleared off that the temps would drop more at nite, but i still wasn't expecting frost.....and yup, i make no bones about it. I am a pansy, wuss, or any other name that can be applied to me when it comes to the cold. Smiley  On the other hand i can handle heat a lot easier than a lot of other folks who then become "wilted pansies " etc., themselves. Grin  We all have our own comfort ranges......mine just happens to be tropical but i can make do with desert ok too.  Not even interested in alpine or tundra except for a visit in summer.......maybe.

I have to agree with that it's no frost here in Yuma and I like it . the rain was the worst that I have seen here tho the first time I've seen the satellite TV drop clear out in a rain storm.  Jerry

It IS kind of poopy that we drive ALL the way to Arizona, and we've pretty much used up all of our long sleeved shirts because it's been so cool!  Boy, if it weren't for that fire in the evenings, there would have been a LOT less hanging around and chatting after dark around here, ha ha.

ONTH, we had a great time and will be here another day or two and then may head south trying to locate some warm weather before working our way back to Oklahoma.  So far, the new office girl has done great and hasn't cried once, so we're going to GRADUALLY work our way home instead of hauling butt for the Oklahoma border!  Christy Hicks

So far, the new office girl has done great and hasn't cried once....

Using my extreme gift of perception ( Cheesy), it sounds to me like you have worked with office girls before. lol When you said you were leaving the office with her, I actually wondered how long it would be until she cried. Sounds like a good one if she hasn't yet (that you know of Wink).

I have my own share of stories. lol

God bless,

John

Sonnie stopped by in Abilen to fuel up and invited me over for a chat. He sure had some wild stories to tell. He wouldn't mention any names, but said Christy was on John,s shoulder on a bike? This oughta be good I'm thinking, then he mentioned something but I forgot what he said! Roll Eyes
