HAPPY BIRTHDAY MARY

MARY CELEBRATED HER BIRTHDAY THIS WEEK, AND IT WILL BE A BIRTHDAY TO REMEMBER. 2020 THE YEAR MARY TURNED 70 YEARS OLD DURING THE SELF-QUARANTINE FOR THE CORONA VIRUS.

WE GASSED UP THE PRIUS FOR TEN BUCKS AND HEADED UP THE WHITE MOUNTAINS IN A QUEST TO FIND SNOW. THE APACHE INDIAN RESERVATION AND THE APACHE NATIONAL FOREST HAVE CLOSED ALL THEIR RECREATION AREAS INCLUDING THE LAKES TO FISHING.  WE SOON CAME UP TO A ROAD CLOSED BARRICADE ACROSS THE ROAD AND WERE FORCED TO TURN BACK. THE ROAD TO THE SUNRISE SKI MOUNTAIN HOWEVER, WAS OPEN.




AND FULFILLED THE QUEST  OF FINDING SNOW.



TO CELEBRATE THE BIRTHDAY WE HAD PIZZA OFF THE GRILL......



AND MARY BAKED HER OWN JACK DANIELS BIRTHDAY CAKE.


THE CAKE WAS DELICIOUS AND INCLUDED MARY'S FAVORITE JACK DANIELS AND REX'S FAVORITE BUTTERSCOTCH.

THE CABIN

WE RETURNED TO THE MOUNTAIN AND OUR CABIN LAST SATURDAY.  WE KNOW WE'RE IN FOR SOME WINTER WEATHER, BUT DECIDED THE CABIN WAS A BETTER PLACE TO BE.



AFTER TWO 7AM TRIPS TO WALMART WE HAVE THE FREEZER AND CUPBOARDS ADEQUATELY STOCKED INCLUDING TOILET PAPER AND BLEACH.



I EVEN HAD THE GRILL FIRED UP LAST NIGHT FOR BURGERS.


WE ARE BOTH FINE AND HUNKERED DOWN.

WORST TRIP EVER !!!

MIKEY'S ANNUAL VISIT TO NEVADA IS ALL ABOUT HIS BIRTHDAY, MARCH MADNESS, AND ST. PAT'S DAY.



THIS YEAR WAS THE WORST TRIP EVER !!!

NOT ONLY THE "BEER-BUG" SLOWLY SHUTTING DOWN VEGAS, BUT THE WEATHER WENT TO HELL, WITH COLD, RAIN, AND CLOUDS.  FIRST IT WAS EVERY OTHER SLOT MACHINE AND ONLY THREE CUSTOMERS PER TABLE GAME, THEN THEY TOOK AWAY EVERY OTHER BAR STOOL. FINALLY AT 5 PM ON ST. PATS DAY THE GOVERNOR ORDERED ALL THE CASINOS CLOSED AT MIDNIGHT.

MIKEY LUCKED OUT AND CHANGED HIS FLIGHT HOME TO IOWA TO WEDNESDAY MORNING INSTEAD OF FRIDAY AFTERNOON, AND THE FOUR QUEENS KICKED US ALL OUT OF THE HOTEL ON WEDNESDAY MORNING.

HERE IS THE UPDATE ON THE NEW CASINO/HOTEL DOWNTOWN VEGAS.



MARY AND I ARE PACKING UP AT WINTER CAMP AND WAITING FOR A SNOW STORM TO CLEAR FLAGSTAFF AND HEADED TO "THE MOUNTAIN" AND OUR CABIN ON SATURDAY TO HUNKER DOWN.

  STAY HOME AND WASH YOUR HANDS !

SPRING

IT'S THAT TIME OF THE YEAR.



MIKEY MAKES HIS ANNUAL PILGRIMAGE TO VEGAS FOR HIS BIRTHDAY AND MARCH MADNESS BASKETBALL.

THE "BEER-BUG" AND WEATHER ARE MAKING THIS THE WORST TRIP IN HIS TEN YEARS OF VISITS.  MAYBE HE WILL GO HOME WITH MONEY SAVED ON BASKETBALL BETS?

WE'VE DONE THE WEEK-END IN LAUGHLIN AND ARE HEADED TO LAS VEGAS TODAY FOR THE WEEK. 

WISH US GOOD LUCK AND GO WASH YOUR HANDS, YES AGAIN.
