It has

been a while since I last posted. We have been very busy these days. Between helping Betty and Tom to move in, trying to get our house in order, and my new drive to work there is very little time left for other things that I enjoy like photography and blogging. Over time, as we get settled in more, that should improve.

They say that you get used to the drive from Pahrump to Las Vegas and I must agree. The drive really does not bother me. For most of it there is little to no traffic, and the scenery can't be beat.

We have gotten to the point where most everything in the house is functional. It is not the way we would like it, but it is functional. All of the "fires" have been put out. Our main objective now is to empty our storage unit and get our "stuff" put away. That in itself is a daunting task!

One conclusion that we have came to is that one of the previous owners engaged in illegal activities in this house. I won't go into all of the details, but when all of the pieces of the puzzle are put together, the conclusion is inescapable.

After moving Betty and Tom in we took Brian to Death Valley.

This coyote was along the side of the road begging for food. They DO NOT like pretzels.

Here is Nancy making "Cup Kalkas" or something like that. They are great, especially when fried in the morning.
