11/9/19—First day of the first Cowmagedddon Juggling Festival taking place at Misty’s farm. Her family raises dairy cows, there are many. Also, horses, get to see.
Only about 12 jugglers showed up (over 20 the next day), a comfortable group, a great location. For me, juggling felt good today. I’ve had a problem with the throw from the left hand/arm. I would turn my palm down as I was releasing the club. This technique had become so embedded into my brain it’s been hard to relearn the correct way.
Not really much juggling going on, we are all having a fantastic time, though. Did some coaching, such as with Will, who is an advanced juggler. Of course, I cannot do them, but I taught him some tricks that were up to and above his level. He understood and learned them quickly. As I teach people skills I once could do, that makes me feel good.
And, as you know, I made a big bowl of salsa yesterday. Today, early, it is almost all eaten up. I sent the recipe out to a few people. I will send the recipe to you, too, just send me an email and ask –
11-10-19—Not much juggling going on today. More play with freebies and playing with the big doggies. Very comfortable with my new friends. Worked with and taught Mackenzie to juggle, she loved it.
She is parked next to me and will be fixing up her van to live and travel in. I gave her many ideas for building and improvement. She will have an excellent home, as I do.
After a nice time at the small juggling festival, off I went to get back to the wilderness, I have to get my fix at least once a week. My aim was Saguaro National Park, and that is from where I am typing to you now. I drove into the park, saw a dirt road going off to the side, and that is the route I took. Here for the night, I am.
On the way, I stopped by a McDonald’s to get on their wifi briefly. There was a table with some older folk right next to me and they were asking questions. I let them know about my travels, which they loved, and about my juggling, too.
I went out to the van to get a copy of my book, Juggling with Finesse (do you have a copy yet?)
Also, I got scarves, showed them the steps to learn, told them to look up scarf juggling lessons on YouTube, and gave them each 3 scarves. I expect they will learn – good on them.
If you don’t juggle and haven’t tried scarves, let me know and I will send you some scarves. I even taught Dorothy how once!
Very nice here. I hear some traffic, but that will get less and less and night comes on. I hope you sleep with a smile on your face tonight.

11/11—Was a comfortable sleep last night, now I have driven into Tucson. I do like this area, I will be here for a month or more, I think. I need to save up monies for recent van costs.
In my last post, I had asked if you might help me catch up on expenses, I did not hear from you, I did not hear from anyone.
Once again, it makes me question if anyone reads my blog and if you care anything about me. I will find a way, as I always do. But, you could still help me.
11/12—What I am doing in Tucson is waiting for some mail to come in at my juggly friend’s house. Last night I was parked in a residential area for sleep. Off in the distance, a few times, I heard a train blasting its horn as it was approaching. Then, after the head of the train passed, I heard the chugga chugga of the wheels on the track for quite some time. It surprises me that anyone can stay living next to this noise that comes nightly and through the day.
Now, at 4:19 in the afternoon, I am parked in Ironwood Forest National Monument. Did an early dinner at 4, pork tacos, delicious. All food I acquired at food banks. I am parked out here alone, no one near.
Today at a food bank I got new apples, grapes, and some other vegetables and beans. I did not want the old, so, rather than throw it away, I put it out for the animals to consume.
So, back where I was living for soooo many years It is cold and freezing say, 5c. Here, right now, in the 80’s(f), almost too hot, very comfortable. Why, just the other day I planted new lettuce and cilantro in my onboard garden, it’s popping up nice. Way too cold to do that back there.
Past 5pm, the sun slowly is sinking into the west. Very quiet here in the desert, nice. Should sleep well tonight, I will let you know. Yourself, sleep with a smile on your face knowing I am thinking of you.
On the way, I was surprised to see fields of cotton balls growing.
11/13—What a fantastic night and morning, I am so happy. I got to be out in the wilderness with the animals. A great fire last night, and also this morning. Do you live in Arizona? Can I visit you?
As I awoke in the desert I had a smile on my face. Breakfast was fried potatoes with onions, my favorite, and, of course, my big cup of tea. I had a mango, so down it went. I like to eat fruit in the morning.
At a library where I worked on my juggling much, out on the grass. Improvements came, I feel now that I can and will get my juggling back. This feeling makes me so happy. I threw 5 balls alright too. Now I must practice daily.
A guy showed up who said he always wanted to learn to juggle, so teach him I did. He liked his new skill. As did the family I taught later, they loved their new skill, too. Everyone I teach I give a set of 3 scarves to and I tell them they have to get 100 throws before the end of the night.
The weather today is a clear blue sky and in the 80’s, so nice. I will be here for, I think, at least for the next few months. Beauty all around, I love it here.
Only about seven o’clock (that is such a strange word, “o’clock”), here I am in Saguaro National Park for the night. So many cactus standing tall. I know there are animals near, I wish they would show their face, I would love to see.
Dinner was the rest of the pork taco mix from last night. I heat up the small corn tortillas and taco mix, and I even had some of my Summers Salsa, which I made at the juggling festival last weekend. The taste was so good (aren’t you glad I didn’t write “delicious”, again?) Some wine after and I am set for the night.
I am so very comfortable here, I love it!
Tomorrow I am already planning on returning to the library I was at earlier today. This place is massive, much more than just books. I will do more juggling tomorrow, and more and more and more.
There is no reason why I cannot get my juggling back. It is mainly my mind that is determining that I can’t. Boy, I’ll teach that brain what’s right.
And, I want to start working out more and more. I have the time, and it will only do me good. So tomorrow I start. Will you join me and start working out, too, getting your body and mind in better shape?
About to lay down and do some reading. I hear birds chirping, such a good sound. It will make me sleep well tonight, I believe. Hope you do, too.
11/14—Can you be alone and be happy? It is important that you learn to be. That is how I live my life, I like it.
The heater in my van will only work on high, won’t work on low or medium. So, I receive too much heat, or I remain cold. I know the small part to fix the problem, a “blower resister”. I stopped at a car part store and bought one. I installed it myself and it is working perfectly.
Came back up to Saguaro National Park, but a different part. Very nice up here, the cactus are all around.
I had a can of chicken breast, so tacos again. I could eat them every night for dinner, so good they are.
I love my tacos, so I opened a can a chicken, mixed in taco seasoning, and that was my scrumptious dinner for the night. I am now parked at a turnoff in the national park; here for the night, I am.
So dark where I am now.
So quiet it is here, too.
Should sleep well tonight.
Hope you do, too.
11/15—Was back in the wilderness overnight, a good sleep.
At a library now to get these words out to you. I’d love to hear from you, will you?
