Yesterday afternoon I went to town...

and could NOT believe the dust...

blowing all over the place! I did walk 1/2 mile with my hoodie sweatshirt tight around my face!

This morning when I looked outside this was all that was left of my neighbors American Flag!

Titus Canyon

Greetings all... for the record, I took 258 pictures today... LOL... and didn't even know it was a competition until the day was over and Rich made a smart remark about making sure he had taken more pictures than me! Hee Hee Hee... I won! The drive was truly amazing and beautiful... Jeff drove through Titus Canyon and then I drove through Death Valley. It was a great day!
We stopped to take this picture... it was truly this close!

Richard looking good...

Dad looking good...
AMAZING rocks surrounding the road!

Richard climbs Mt. Richard...

This is the view from our Beatty apartment... and Rich decided he was going to "take a little walk to the top of the mountain" yesterday morning... He left with his camera and cell phone (but no water we found out later).

After a couple of hours (and a couple phone calls saying he was okay) we drove out to the base to give him a ride back! CRAZY MAN!

To the auction and back...

This is Mr. Ritchie of Ritchie Bros. Auctions! I asked him if I could have a picture with him, and he hopped right out of his pickup so the background would be pretty. Fun! We bought three double bottoms trailers at the auction...
Lindy in front of their house in Fernley.
On the drive home somewhere between Fernley and Tonopah... Don't these mountains look FAKE? They're not! By the way, I am in love with a little puppy in Tonopah... wish I had taken a picture of HIM... his name (my name for him) is Tony Paw... and I really want this dog. Whining??? Yes.
This is Kayla's kitty... she was gone all weekend and he was in her window patiently waiting. The picture doesn't show how HUGE this cat really is... he's amazing!

Beatty, Nevada

Google Beatty... read about Beatty... and know that we are so far out in the boondocks it is hilarious! We've been CRAZY busy this week... but sanity seems to be close. Going to bed in a few minutes... the earliest yet this week. I flew in Monday (lost my cell phone on the plane or in the airport and already have it back), and after taking care of some business in Las Vegas drove the 120 miles (one way) to Beatty. Went back on Tuesday, Thursday, and today! Went to Pahrump yesterday (only 77 miles one way). YUCK... I'm sick of driving! Our apartment is okay... will post some pictures soon. Love reading everyone's blogs...
