Mar 20 was the 1st day of spring by the calender anyways.....Not quite here yet, but most of the snow has melted and getting a bit warmer. Debating whether to take the snow plow off the tractor yet......

Present. I drop by almost every day. Keep myself as busy as I feel like, most times not very much so. Kill rats when they need it; yesterday it was our very expensive air bed - something started leaking and I woke up Sunday morning sleeping in a hole. Tore it apart, found that the air pump has given up the ghost, probably a check valve. Now we have to figure out whether we fix it - new, upgraded pump is $250 plus s&h, and the bed is 15 years old - or go shopping for a new one if we can afford one. Got it blown back up and jury rigged for the time being. A few weeks ago, I built a ramp for the curb so we can more easily use the third space in our driveway, and since I am limited in my ability to get down or back up, it was a a challenge. This week, the city decided to seal the streets in the neighborhood, so I had to move that heavy SOB out of the gutter and up into the driveway - made me sweat, but I got it moved. Just life; sun comes up, sun goes down. I do hope everyone of our longtime and short time denizens is well.

My brother and his lady flew in Sunday, he for a visit, and she for marathon slot machines; she gets comped at MGM Grand. So on Monday, I picked him up in the morning and we wandered about in the desert; went out to the Desert National Wildlife Preserve and looked at the exhibits and did a bit of walking about in their nature walk area, then we set out for a back country drive on the Old Mormon Trail. It was a fifty mile piece of rather rough road, but passable in two wheel drive, and at a fairly slow speed - I seldom got over 25 mph, and most of the time was around 15; beautiful high desert geology, flora, and fauna in the heart of The Sheep Range, a mountain range north of Las Vegas. I can see the high peaks, and quite a lot of the lesser mountains that make up the range from my front yard, and have always wondered just what they were like up close - well, now I know, and I plan on going again and exploring a different road and direction. The elevation change over Mormon Pass was from about 2300 ft. to 6500, and back down to about 2000 or so on the eastern end at U.S. Highway 93. A good day all around.

Now, back to my usual, rather boring day to day stuff.
