I've missed this old blog.
So I'll write a new post, just to fill everyone in on what we've been doing.
Mr Fox hasn't been feeling well, so he hasn't been making any of his antler jewelry in a few months. Since he turned 80, he's been in a kind of depression spiral. Not feeling well, spending time in bed, losing muscle tone, not being able to do the things he used to... It's a hard place to be, and I'm not entirely sure what I should do...

So I just continue with my life, making things, listing things, doing a bit of ebay selling...
and of course driving him to the dr and the ER as required. Being his voice at the Drs, because he sometimes can't think of the right words in the allotted time. Passing on the lists of pains and problems so the Drs can perhaps fix them.

My son & his family were here last weekend and we had a good visit. My granddaughter and her husband are having their first child in December; the baby, Gideon, is kicking up a storm.

My son is trying to raise funds to pay the deductible for his wife's MS medication. Here's the link:- If you think you can help, please do- the medication she takes to slow the progress of the disease has a $5000 deductible and a $1000 co-pay per month. And you wonder how they can even keep up...

Until next time,
Take care, be well, and love one another.

Some new pics of the cactus in bloom in the front yard. We take the cold sensitive plants inside for the winter, and when spring comes, we put them outside under the trees in the front yard. There they enjoy mottled sunshine and monsoon rains. The cactus, which is at least 20 years old, blooms every year with a giant showy blossom. This year, it has many buds and will no doubt continue to bloom through August.

The kitteh is our oldest cat. He is 14 years old and still handsome as ever. He always wonders, though, why I crawl on the floor to get good pictures of him. I'll let him wonder...

The Monsoon Rains have come!

It rained today! So nice! Cooled everything off, brought the cats in to get dry...The smell of rain is heavenly!

I took photos while the sun was out and posted some new pieces on our various venues. Pretty things:

Arizona, Crispy as a Taco and twice as HOT!

Yes, the big fire is still burning in the White Mountains of Eastern AZ. No containment at all, and Eagar is on standby to evacuate. I saw pictures of the sky in was yellow with smoke and ash. Yellow! People are being cautioned to stay indoors and keep the air conditioners off in ABQ.

For us in the northwest of the state, things are dry, but not on fire, yet. We've been lucky, because the winds are blowing from southwest to northeast, and we haven't even had smoke or ash. But poor New Mexico! The town of Luna NM has been warned to be ready to evacuate.

There have been few reports of loss of buildings, but firefighters say part of that is because they can't see in the smoke, and planes and helicopters have been grounded by the winds. Over 300 square miles has been blackened.

The economy is based to a large extent on tourism. Tourism is based on people who want to go enjoy the the cool pines and mountains... but that will be impossible to do. There's nothing quite so sad as the land after a fire.. blackened sticks, pointing to the sky.

Pray for the evacuees, and pray for rain.
