They must be hungry...
We are still having a wonderful time here in Parker. My duck is progressing quite nicely and actually does look like a bird... All of my fingers are in tact and thre has been no more blood. One of the other people in class loaned me a kevlar glove that helps to keep the knife from getting too deep. I haven't tested it yet, and have no intention to any time soon. We went to Oatman Monday. Took route 66 all the way there. It was quite a drive - pretty twisty turny - when we got to the "other side" of the desert, Bob said, "why the heck didn't they just put the highway straight across the desert from one side to the other instead of winding it all over the place? I don't get it!". Frankly, neither do I, but hey - who are we to question? At any rate, we had no idea what to expect when we got there. Only that there were wild donkey's that roam around the town. What a collection of gift shops! I have never seen so many! Then the donkey's came into town like they own it and when they found someone
Me n the littlest one
Yes, I got a perm and yes I seem to be standing in fresh donkey poo....
with carrots, boy they got pushy. Really pushy. The little ones were really cute though. They came in with little stickers on their heads - a little carrot with a circle and a line through it so that no one would feed them carrots. Some of them rolled around in the dirt, and a couple play-fought in the street. There were a couple of actors that put on a little bank robbery/gun fight thing a couple of times while we were there. And there was a restaurant/hotel that had dollar bills plastered in just about every inch of wall space there. There were thousands of them dating back to the 60's and there were names and notes and dates on them - pretty cool. We left Oatman heading north to Laughlin on Route 66. Man there is a whole lotta nuthin out there! Once we got to Laughlin we stopped briefly at Davis Park and got a great picture of Al in front of a HUGE cactus. We headed home from there stopping only briefly to catch something to eat. Over the course of the day, Bob managed to pick up quite a cold. We've figured out that one of

This was in Laughlin at Davis Park.
our newer neighbors passed it on to him a couple days previous. Note to self and anyone else who diesn't want to get sick: DO NOT SHAKE HANDS WITH ANYONE! Of course we didn't know until yesterday that he was actually sick. It just wasn't obvious at the time. Anyway, he's pretty much down for the count. He went out yesterday for about an hour or so and now he's worse. The boy just won't listen. We probably won't be doing anything for a few days now. Until he's healthy. Until then, take care everyone!
