2014 Season Update – NOT

Howdy everyone. Seems I have gotten behind the ball this year. Not even going to try to keep up with Facebook now that I’ve missed week. I tell everyone that is what personal messages are for. Don’t try asking me questions in comments on groups LOL. Somebody has to tell me where they are.
I did not realize it was opening day at Rainbow Ridge until after 2pm – 2oo miles away. I did get some Jasper LOL. The Kokopelli did not get it’s doors open this year. So sorry I have been saying it was, but not yet.
It was a grey day for the diggers at the fee digs and there were over 20 camps by the pond when I went by later that night. (I had used up my 5 gallons of “good” water on the trip and need fresh.) Opal Negra made it again and Opal Queen is no show. This weekend is sold out at the Ridge for fresh piles. Weather is 80s and 40s and the Night Blooming Primrose is here again. Even got some Iris blossoms after the first were frozen. The field artillery has been brought out for some Memorial Day fun by Fields.
I do need to sell some of the wonderful stones languishing in my larder. Like these that got a little sun (and wind -mute).

So off to the Races and I don’t mean Indy, I wish.
