Free Music and a Starlit Night

Sunday afternoon we went into Wickenburg for lunch at the Cowboy Cafe. Fried chicken was good, the waitress had a lot to be desired. But at least I didn't have to cook. An art show was happening in town so we stopped by there. It is always interesting to see the art in different parts of the country. As we started to leave town I caught sight of some musicians in an ice cream store. Imagine that- something in an ice cream store caught my eye. We stopped and got some ice cream and sat for a while listening to the music before going back to the campground. An enjoyable afternoon.
Tom took Travis out before going to bed and came back in the MH saying the skies were clear and I needed to come out to see all the stars. The sky was just full of stars. With the density of population along the east coast star-filled skies are just not visible anymore in that part of the country. Seeing skies like this reminds me of being that farm kid and the night skies at that time.
Today has been spent at the campground. A light in the motorhome stopped working last week and Tom had ordered a new one. We expected that to arrive today and hoped that our mail that Todd sent out last week would arrive. The light did but not the mail. Tom replaced the light but not before going to the hardware store.
