  1. I just went to FB was going to post what he did today (usually posts his artwork every day). No work posted, now at Apache Gold Resort San Carlos, not sure if Tucson for the art show or Tombstone trip.
  2. There is a Navajo artist from Farmington, NM. I've followed him for some time on FB. Done a lot of commenting on his work and usually responds saying Thank You! Right now sales are taking off on the sand paintings, especially around Arizona... starting to do art shows there soon. Navajo sand paintings are doing quite well, in spite of the pandemic. I'd love to do some paintings like his, but somewhere read there are laws to protect Natives arts & crafts. Yes, Mittry Lake is a nice area. Plenty of bird watchers were around the lake with their scopes set up on a tripod.

  4. Tough as nails, shi...ete hard to sell anything! I refuse to come any lower than 20% royalty. The way I see it, I'm on Social Security and they don't like it, they need not buy anything. Copied a number of my old color film prints from Arizona. The acrylic triptych sets are or were being printed in Arizona. Enlargements on Kodak paper, think at the Nevada Zazzle plant. Some things made Quebec Canada. These companies get so big, almost like Redbubble which is out of Australia.
  5. Hope you had a Happy Birthday Max!!!
  6. I'll have to come back later for a better look.
  7. 2nd wasp showing it's face around stinger end of front wasp. You know it if stung by one of them.
  8. https://greennature.com/paper-wasps/ Another very wide ranging species, the Northern Paper Wasp, lives everywhere east of the Rocky Mountains. If researchers are on the right course, Northern Paper Wasps might all be able to recognize each other. According to a 2011 study called Specialized Face Learning Is Associated with Individual Recognition in Paper Wasps Polistes fuscatus can differentiate among normal wasp face images more rapidly and accurately than nonface images or manipulated faces. A close relative lacking facial recognition, Polistes metricus, however, lacks specialized face learning. Similar specializations for face learning are found in primates and other mammals, although P. fuscatus represents an independent evolution of specialization.
  9. Got good photos of this wasp with red markings also.
  10. Saw one looked exactly the same on TV the other day. They were exploring the McKezie watershed of New South Wales Australia.
  11. Look at the size of this winged ant on the screen door. Never have seen any on the property before now.
  12. Cooling trend here, we were getting weather alert warnings for high air pollution, smoke from fires out west combining with a higher humidity/heat index over the state.
  13. Recently, new info on Delta variant, is you get more sore throat, headaches, and a runny nose. If you have vaccine or antibodies from other variants, it will be only a mild infection. We have Delta variant going around our state at the moment.
  14. Now that you mention it, I've noticed for weeks a looseness around the belt. Don't want to weigh myself. I try to keep any extra lb. (or lbs.) I can get.
  15. Glad to hear Don, you are still ok. We are back running fevers again and coughing way too much.
  16. Can't get any worse than already is on social media. Twice recently I've vacated my FB page until getting more than 100 new notifications. After about 106 they stop telling you how many.
  17. Like the Australia gold prospecting forum did with Covid discussions, make a board for it so, threads don't pop up in with gold topics. Simple to control if you confine it.
  18. I deactivated my Twitter account several months ago. Might be good to have the political board to help members sort things out.
  19. Happy Birthday to you Skip!
  20. All of us ran fevers, but my dad who has turned 90 years already, got it last and many times worse tan all our symptoms put together. Monday night, the 14th (?) got so dad could not stand up, coughing stuff out of his lungs. It was that bad already about 3-4 days. He tried to crawl up the stairway to his room but only got halfway up with me helping. That turned out to be good because stuff drained out of his lungs all over the steps. After began improving right away... probably because now getting more oxygen. We had sleep down in the family room for the night. About 5:00 AM in the morning dad got up by himself and walked up the stairs, used the bathroom up there, then to his room. Dad made the most remarkable recovery.
  21. Right now, I can't even mention what we just went through... it started Memorial Day weekend on Saturday morning. Today is looking good, looking like we probably made it through.
  22. Hope Don is ok! I think we are just getting over Covid here.
  23. It's Arizonz Bureau of Mines, bulletin 168, date 1961 reprinted 1981, 1988, and 1994. (was) Currently the Arizona Geological Survey. Copyright: 1961 Board of Regents of the Universities and State College of Arizona. All rights reserved. It is thick as any book you would buy.
  24. It was pretty bad there for a while, hope things do get better now.
