January is one of those months when it’s five weeks between Social Security checks. Under normal circumstances I have to be careful with my spending. Buying a couple of tires means I need to squeeze every last nickel for the next couple of weeks.
The largest budget item is usually gasoline. Unless I don’t go anywhere. So I’m staying put along the road to Palm Canyon in the Kofa National Wildlife Refuge south of Quartzsite. Atli, Joe and LaVonne are here, so I'm not alone. And it’s very pretty.
