Chilly in Oracle, Arizona, visiting with Cousin Otie ...

... am learning Picasa, a free photo program from Google and am about to surprise you with more recent pictures, woohoo!

On February 9th I left Belen and the winter weather with a small supply of "winter clothes." This past six weeks has been more on the chilly side ... but at least the ground is not frozen. It snowed here in Oracle all day Sunday ....

It's 5500 feet elevation ... melting as soon as it hits the ground. These are the front stairs and side deck on the left to his new house. Cannot believe I did NOT take any more pictures.

Cuz and I have been burning up the midnight oil getting caught up on family and lots of picture sharing. We figure it's been 20 years since we last were together at mom's in Modesto. His mother and my father were siblings. Otie is remodeling an abandoned Baptist Church on his property here as his latest home and hopes to move in in July. It will be a stunner. He does all this by himself, even making all the cabinets in the wood shop of a nearby school.

He has this cute little car ....

More tomorrow ... we are going to the big city of Tucson to celerate one of my BIG birthdays. Stay tuned!

Spreading light and love all over this earth ... me and Brightwing.
