Wednesday January 17th.
Today we walked up to Tysons. This is a giant flea market. One of 5 or 6 in the area. We were invited last night to go with Bob and Linda to a Escapees B.O.F.
Ok I'll explain. Escapees is an organization of primarily full timers. We are members. Escapees has many B.O.F.s This stands for Birds of a Feather, another name for a group within Escapees sharing a common interest. There are many you can join. This BOF is a Christian Fellowship group. They were having a family bluegrass gospel group performing, followed by a Potluck meal. Did you ever know a group of Christians getting together without food? All of us brought our own chairs and sat out in the desert listening to this family perform. Afterwards they brought out the food, Judy brought her broccoli salad, and everyone lined up and dug in. The food was actually pretty good. Then we pulled our chairs around a big campfire and just talked for a while. It gets dark early here and the stars are so beautiful. I even learned about Orion. Kind of reminds me of being on the boat in the middle of lake Michigan. We were back home by 8:30. Another good day in the desert. I am not going to write much more about Quartzite. Frankly if you go to the website http://www.because-we-can.net/ and check out the archieved blogs you will learn all you need to know and if you check between the 14th and the 24th you might just find a few pictures of us. So why the picture of the guy on his Amigo? Sometimes the traffic moves slow in Q, so slow that this guy passed me, No kidding!!!
