… once in a while when I am in the Lake Pleasant area it is fun to drive in the back country west and north of the lake in search of Wild Burros and more often than not I find them. I found a group of them near the old “Turf North” runway … when flying sailplanes out of Turf Soaring, it used to be a small landable forest service strip several miles north of Lake Pleasant. It was a great place to have there in case you got hammered and were unable to make it north across the Bradshaw’s or south across the lake and back to Pleasant Valley Airport where Turf was located. Turf is gone and so is Turf North … but the Burros are still there and life continues. Wild horses and burros are available for adoption through the BLM if you are interested and there are numerous sales throughout the year, including several in Arizona. Check the website out at: https://www.blm.gov/adoptahorse/index.php and/orhttps://aci.az.gov/adopt-a-horse-or-burro/ .
A great weekend with mostly a lot of work on the book and it is going well … still looking at an April publish date.
A new week is already well underway and I’m due for infusions of espresso in not that many hours. Have a beautiful day … smile, we are here and that is the start of the best day of your life! Your choices today determine how you will view the day tonight.
Know thou thyself, and live to please thy soul
… by kind words and gentle brotherhood,
Love men and truth, and poverty most like
Will dine with you, but peace will feed your soul.
— Max Ehrmann
