A terrific week

sister, bro-in-law and their sweet pup Buddy

I'm sad but have some wonderful memories of sweet sister and her dearly beloved during their visit.

We did a lot  but not that much where we couldn't hang out play a gome of cards, take a walk or sit around the fire at nite and roast a marshmallow or three.  By the way sweet sister beat the socks off me in the card playing department.  Dang couldn't catch a break!!

We even got some antiquing done one day.  Each purchased a much wanted/sought after 8" Pyrex pie plate.  They don't make those babies any more so we were both cited to make  the purchase.

We traveled to the old silver mine, Castle Dome.

Wandered out to the Colorado River, that's BIL viewing.

Had a great lunch at my favorite joint

Saw a few blooms on the desert.

Went to see the Yuma Jail and the QuarterMaster Depot.  Did ya see the movie 310 to Yuma?  This was the jail they were to deposit Russel Crowe.

We topped off the week with some flying, not by us but by some very talented folks at the Marine Corp Air Station Air Show here in Yuma.

Thanks for sharing your wonderful week with all of us. I have said it before, I'll say it again...... I envy you both having a sister.

Fantastic. Glad you could post the pix. I do want the "shadow" of the two of us with the cactus.
