Phoebe got a new sweater!
Too big for Rose's dog, Snickerdoodle, Phoebe inherited this beautiful blue sweater. Amazingly enough, she let me put it on her the first day of trying!! But then, she had trouble walking in it (Mom, there's sleeves!!!).
It has been very cold here (for southern Arizona!) - high's in the low 50's (lower wind-chill with winds in the low teens) and night-time lows in the 30's!! So, an extra sweater for Phoebe is very much appreciated!
The winds overnight did a number on the 15' pole holding my windsock - the bottom section broke in the wind - I heard it flopping around in the middle of the night and took it down. With a little creativity, the pole is back in business - just about 3' shorter.
Tonight was the 'wienie roast' - I was unprepared!
Too many men with time on their hands - the result was a Rube Goldberg display of innovative roasting mechanisms!! I especially liked Lance's 'fishing pole' design - powered by a drill and ending in a basket capable of rotating and roasting 4-6 dogs at a time.
|I especially like the tray at the top for putting on condiments!|

Finding a sunny spot away from the wind . . .
Despite the cool temps, it's lovely in the sun . I visit with new friends, look up old friends, try to teach Phoebe that she doesn't need to hysterically scream every time someone walks by (she's getting possessive of the trailer . . . . sigh) - go into town now and then for some wandering around the flea market. Another day in Quartzite - lovely.
