Bee GeePS Stayin' Alive
The NRCD Wine Tour was great. I only attended the morning session and lunch. We went to Page Springs Cellars and the Javalina Leap wineries. The people who talked to us were very knowledgeable and really knew their stuff. The NRCD Board members performed admirably. The three NRCS Staff in attendance were fully involved and made meaningful contributions. There were ten of us total. We took ba-zillions of photos and will post up some soon. Lunch was at Cornville's Grasshopper Grill. I was underwhelmed by the place but the visit was worthwhile because I found an unlicensed electrician's name on the bulletin board out front. He actually came over to Straw Central later yesterday and will theoretically be here at 10 am to add some more circuits out in the well house. It's something we've been wanting to do for more than a year.
After departing from the Wine Tourists, we ran a slew of errands over in Cottonwood. We found a real nice 9-iron for Susun for a dollar; picked up some Zuki parts and supplies, shopped at Food City and then zipped overta Hayfield Draw. We returned Myron's radiator and paid for two pieces of specialty welding at Harold's Place nearby. Myron sure is a nice guy. He offered to link our Zuki blog to his popular website. I don't know if the Zuki blog is ready for prime time yet, so we'll see.
Upon our return home, we made an agreement with the electrician and then messed with the Zuki until campfire time. 'Twas a warm and windless evening. Gary came over and we enjoyed a fine fire.
Susun & Crew spent about an hour and a half at Heather's Place yesterday. The Grandson's were a bit too intimidated by horses to want to sit on one but Nancy got some high class quality time on one of Heather's horses.
Well, that's all for now. Cheers, jp
