This is my first award and I want to pay it forward. So the winners of the Van Gogh’s Ear Award are:
Bernie at Natural Moments sees the world through his heart, mind and soul and captures it in true words and amazing photography.
Suzie of Arabia, an American woman, shares the most astonishing stories and images of her new life in a very different culture.
Joan at South African Photographs sees how the tiniest parts of the world fit into the whole and big picture through her macro lens. Also known as Bug Chaser.
Amanda’s Veranda is an excellent place to hang out whether you have two legs or four. She finds beauty and humor through her camera lens every day.
Arija at Garden Delights weaves a story or poem throughout her views of the world in Australia and shares in the beauty of the world.
Kathiesbirds at Sycamore Canyon are well fed and photographed. She takes us on the most amazing walks through the desert.
Please take the time to visit these folks if you don’t already.
This photo was taken during Fall of 2007 while camped on Bureau of Land Management (BLM) acreage just north of the Lake Havasu City airport, Arizona.

We also went to Costco, a bead store, a printer ink store and Safeway. And we actually made it home before dark.

Harcuvar Mts, Arizona

Linda and Charlie have a motorhome that tows a cargo trailer that holds their little car. But when parked, the trailer becomes an awesome work shop. The girls have been busy making jewelry. (Click on FabGrandma to see) Yet they were ready to shop for more beads in Quartzsite.
Karen shopping for beads
So Friday we (minus Jim suffering with a cold) left early and walked and shopped for about six hours at Tyson Wells and Prospectors. We had so much fun and found many treasures.
I restrained myself well as I have so much bead stock already. However the excitement was contagious. Jim’s cold might have also been contagious, or maybe it was the 35mph plus winds in the afternoon blowing dust up my nose. Either way by the end of the day I could barely breathe through my sore runny nose.
One of many rows of stalls at the Main Event, Quartzsite
Yet Saturday I found the energy to walk the Main Event’s rows of sellers with Ron, a friend living in Quartzsite. During January and February this town plays host to nonstop rock and craft shows and flea markets. There’s so much to see, and buy: rocks, salsa, gems, jewelry, junk, rocks, animal hides, jelly, collectibles of every kind, beads, gourds, rocks and...
Sunday after taking Ron out to breakfast for his birthday I went to Vicksburg flea market to visit Ed and Loretta. I’d also planned to return to Brenda before going home, but was feeling so lousy I called and cancelled. I’ll see them next week.

Nice to be home in my own bed. And I believe staying in all day has improved my health. Only tomorrow can tell.
