August 4, 2016---Yuma, Arizona

August 4, 2016---Yuma, Arizona

We left the house bright and early this morning, heading to Ogilby Road to check out the condition of the Desert Primrose plants we located in the spring.

Before going there, however, we stopped at McDonald's for sausage biscuits.  We love eating as we drive down the road.  Long before McDonald's invited sausage biscuits, I was making them for our family road trips.  I made lots of them for each trip, because we always had hungry children with us.  The kids always looked forward to breakfast on the road.  They still talk about the sausage biscuits we had.

The dried primprose plants are called Mexican Birdgages.  They are very interesting.  We found a number of good examples to harvest.

On our way back into Yuma, we stopped at Furniture Row.  Several of the houses we've looked at need furniture.  In each section of the store, we found at least one set of things we liked.  It has been 28 years since we shopped for sofas, dining room chairs, bedroom sets, and things like that.  I was very tired when we finished.  

While we were shopping, our friend, Gale called to make sure we had found the recipe for "peanut butter and bananas.  A part of the joke is to call Natalia to check it all out.

And since it was lunchtime and we were just around the block from In-N-Out, guess where we ate lunch!

We went home after eating for naps.  I took a long snooze and felt much better afterwards.
