We stopped in the little historic town of Wickenburg on our way ---and began our search for a fun place for lunch.
We ended up at a little café called the Gold Nugget ---as it was after 1pm when we stopped, the place was fairly deserted and we had a great talk with the owner, and with one of his friends who was helping him out---from GREECE! How does a person get from Greece and wind up in Wickenburg, Arizona??
I so love people and listening to their stories and life experiences!
The view across the street from where we ate! CUTE!
Me & my new friend Eduardo LOL!!
I know we look cozy, and the sun is shining – but have you ever tried to hug a metal statue when it is 28 degrees in the sun? BRRRRR!! I swear, if I had kissed him, my lips would have stuck to his face!
The drive up to Prescott is winding and empty ---My word of the week as I have driven place to place across the mountains and valleys is VAST. As in – "this week is brought to you by the word VAST" kind of vast.
Yes, the sun is shining, but I’m sure the wind-chill brought the temp to about 20.
Scenes like this add to the desolation of the area.
Dad’s PT looks like a roller skate next to this mountain side!
I’m all tucked into my room in Prescott, and Sandy, my contact came to greet me and bring me this sweet girl!
Hello, Sweet Thang!
All set up and ready to sew!
A quick check of the serial number gives this wee girl a birthdate of 1947.
I will have two nights to bond with her before returning her to her owner, Maryann!
Have a great evening, everyone!
