Saturday, 26 June 2010

No doubt about it, it's getting seriously HOT, 106 yesterday at my house!  Today starts FIELD DAY and I'm sure there are several already up on Mount Lemmon or Bigelo getting ready for the big weekend.  So, we had 14 today.  Our main girl is missing and should be in Spain or at least preparing for the trip.  We did, however, have pretty good service by the girls including this one: DSC_8787.JPG (122753 bytes) and that's always good.  Where's Collister?  I'll bet you can find this one five or six times in the Shirt Gallery. No new faces this moring. PS:  I even corrected last week's date!  I was also informed that the QSL DSC_8660.JPG (134968 bytes) Don was holding was one from RAY to TOM many years ago!
PPS:  Yes, I know it's "H"ollister!

The hot days start off pretty nice.  It was about 63 this morning when I left the house.  There must have been  23 here today.  No new faces this morning and we were missing one DSC_8682.JPG (87505 bytes).  I can't believe that she let Basil out of the house alone!  We had a pretty good time today.  Our favorite girl is traveling to , no less, and won't be honoring us with her presence for a while.  Have fun in Spain, Cheree!  Here is a nice picture of Bob & Janice.  I think I'll give them top billing again.   I think that she is having fun attending the Jerry Bob's as you might see in a picture below.

There were 22 folks here this beautiful cool morning.  The temperature was 66 when I got up and there's a cool breeze.  It's a far cry from the 100's we've been having for the last couple weeks.  We had a good group this morning with the return of our prodigal son Tom - KB7XL who's been on a coast-to-coast tour.  There were three new faces this morning and will be documented below.  About three weeks ago, I received a call from Chuck - N7UQ saying that this guy had just tested and passed and asked me to give him a hand getting started.  Rolly - KF7IGU came over for the cook's tour and would you believe he tested again this past week and is now an EXTRA.  Congratulations Rolly!  Good Job!  DSC_8666.JPG (90869 bytes) and DSC_8668.JPG (110810 bytes) where missing to parts unknown.  DSC_8495.JPG (89975 bytes) will return from the East coast Tuesday and should be here next Saturday.  DSC_8684.JPG (86823 bytes) is headed back East as well.  I wonder where  DSC_8683.JPG (92455 bytes), DSC_8682.JPG (87505 bytes), DSC_8696.JPG (72276 bytes),  DSC_8697.JPG (71609 bytes) and DSC_8658.JPG (89482 bytes) were this morning.  Was there a ham fest somewhere today?

Saturday, 5 June 2010

A beautiful warm morning.  The temp was about 65 when I started out and on the way home it was a balmy 90!  Looks like spring has sprung in Tucson.   I think we had 27 folks here this morning.  Don - UIZ was thinking we might give away the 30th Breakfast award, but no such luck.  If , DSC_8656.JPG (94004 bytes), DSC_8329.JPG (112175 bytes) and DSC_8476.JPG (86923 bytes) had shown up, we'd have given it away.  We did have a couple of new faces brought in by Steve -  AK8E and the long lost Tammy showed up with Chuck, that was a surprise.   Speaking of DSC_8495.JPG (89975 bytes) , he is still vacationing in Mass. and says he'll go to the Red Parrot restaurant near Hull with K1LWI - Wendell on Tuesday and if you are watching the web cam there, you might see them wave at us.  Now that I think about it, if we'd have had DSC_8536.JPG (104569 bytes),DSC_8482.JPG (110494 bytes),DSC_8340.JPG (101922 bytes),,DSC_8458.JPG (81907 bytes) & DSC_8386.JPG (94226 bytes) we would have shattered the record!

Hey!  It hit 100 yesterday!  There were 24 attending this morning.  Guess who went on vacation DSC_8495.JPG (89975 bytes) back East.  We miss you.  Most of the regulars showed up this morning with the exception of , and DSC_8542.JPG (84780 bytes) .  I guess I bragged that Steve had made three in a row.  Anyway, we had a couple of new faces this morning, however they weren't hams. And ...oh yes, DSC_8281.JPG (111535 bytes) is back!  Ah, almost forgot, there WAS a new face this morning.

I'm with him.  My name is Cheryl.

Another beautiful morning in Tucson.  We had 20 today with a special appearance of KL0UO and his XYL Paula.  Paula has been through proverbial hell with medical issues, yet, here she is looking pretty darned good considering.  Glad to see you guys.  We are still missing a few of the regulars, however, they are excused due to traveling and downright good weather.  Can't say that I blame them.

Another nice morning.  There were 19 attending this morning.  I think that DSC_8463.JPG (100138 bytes) is in Dayton having a good time, I'm sure, One of ,s ball team members had a birthday so here's the sun flowers for her.  Another picture follows below. Don't know what happened to DSC_8377.JPG (103060 bytes) , DSC_8283.JPG (99109 bytes), DSC_8473.JPG (88517 bytes), or DSC_8476.JPG (86923 bytes)They might have told me, but I've forgotten anyway.  I talked to DSC_8422.JPG (104477 bytes) and he's in Madera Canyon camping.  Says he's going to Bigelo and Lemmon next.  Have fun John.

Saturday, 8 May 2010

Kinda' cloudy today in sunny Tucson, but we had a pretty good group with a few less of the bunch missing as last week.  Anyway, I think we had 17 folks here this morning.  Not much else to report.  My camera must have had operator error because a couple of the pictures were a bit fuzzy.  Diana brought in a flower, some kind of "biscuit", I guess.  Don't know much about flowers. Oh, you meant a "hibiscus"!

Saturday, 1 May 2010

Happy Mayday everybody.  It was a beautiful morning, a bit chilly, and there wasn't a cloud to be had.  This might be the last of the cool WX for the year.  We had 19 today, but a couple three regulars were missing, probably went to Sorry Vista for the ham fest down there.  DSC_8024.JPG (103338 bytes) , , DSC_8377.JPG (103060 bytes) , DSC_8420.JPG (91827 bytes) , DSC_8428.JPG (87502 bytes) , DSC_8430.JPG (89810 bytes) DSC_8360.JPG (116312 bytes) and DSC_8340.JPG (101922 bytes) were missing with DSC_7906.JPG (97155 bytes) ,DSC_8281.JPG (111535 bytes) and DSC_8278.JPG (93900 bytes) on the road somewhere.  We'd have had a big crowd if they'd showed up.   If those missing had been here, we would have given away the record breaking breakfast award. We also had a couple who had been missing for a while show up. 

Seems appropriate in Arizona these days!

Saturday, 17 April 2010

There were19 folks here this morning   The mornings are getting warmer.  Very pleasant, didn't need a jacket or sweater.  We had a long lost face show up for the first time in about a year and a half.  It was good to see Steve.  Also, after breakfast, Alan - KF7DDF put on quite a show with an battery powered RC hellicopter.  Pretty neat !  Guess who was missing:   DSC_8327.JPG (94273 bytes) I guess he was not feeling up to par, but I did hear him this afternoon on the radio so it appears that he's OK!  Also this guy DSC_8281.JPG (111535 bytes) is on a trip back to Illinois.  He'll be gone for a couple weeks or so. 

Steve - AK8E
