Kite Flying Weather

It’s been very windy here at the Thousand Trails campground in Cottonwood, Arizona, with more wind predicted today. Which makes it perfect kite flying weather. But alas, the only thing I’ve been flying is my keyboard.

The good news is I’m making steady progress on the new issue of the Gypsy Journal and I’m on schedule to meet our deadline and have it to our printer on Monday morning.

We were both getting cabin fever by yesterday afternoon and needed a break, so about four o’clock we drove into Cottonwood for dinner at Bing’s Burger Station. Housed in an old gas station with a 1950s rock and roll theme, this is one of our local favorites and we try to stop every time we’re in the area. The food is good and they play great old music that will have you tapping your toes while you eat. I’d sure like to have the old Plymouth they have parked out front!

Our supplies were running low, so after dinner we stopped at WalMart to pick up some stuff, and then to Fry’s, because we stopped buying meat and produce at WalMart a while back because we don’t like the quality and it seemed to go bad before Terry could use it.

Back home I worked on the paper, answered e-mails, and watched a little TV until bedtime. I also logged onto Amazon and Barnes & Noble’s author’s websites to see how Dog’s Run is doing. It’s been bouncing in and out of Amazon’s Top 100 for mysteries since it was published last month and has received fifteen 5 star reviews. Thanks for buying the book, leaving reviews, and telling your friends about it.

If you’re looking for some good reading at a great price, check out Desperate Acts on Amazon. Seven bestselling authors, Melissa Foster, CJ Lyons, MJ Rose, Russell Blake, Kathleen Shoop, Jenna Bennett, and Katia Lief have combined seven thrilling full length novels onto one anthology for just 99 cents. That’s a heck of a deal!

I’m going to sneak away from my desk for a while this afternoon, too. Terry has been reading a blog by a weaver named Amanda Cutler who lives up in the Prescott area, and we’re going to run up there and pay her a visit.

I’m sure I’ll get bored pretty quickly, so while Terry is doing that I may hunt up a book store or gun shop to kill some time. Who knows, I may even find someplace to fly my Prism Snapshot 1.9 kite!

Thought For The Day – A happy marriage is the union of two good forgivers.

  1. Is the plant life in AZ any concern for the kite? Couldn’t it rip quite easily if crashed?

  2. Nick, there is a gun store as you head out of Prescott on Hiway 89 headed south. Also one or maybe even 2 in Prescott Valley.

  3. Talking to some Walmart employees I discovered that in our area at least (Florida), Walmart has stopped having meat cutters at each store. Meat is pre-cut, packaged and sent to each store. They also add saline (salt) solution to the meat to help preserve it. We stopped buying meat from Walmart and now buy it where we know it is fresh and cut & packaged in the back. Sam’s clubs seem to still cut and package their own meat.

  4. David, Yes, I’ll have to look harder for places in AZ. Parks and school yards with grass seem to work well.
