Beautiful Moorten Botanical Garden, with every manner of lovely cacti (and a jaunty hummingbird or two), just down the block from my Uncle’s, though it would have been worth a far, far longer trek. Frankinbun – the delightful whimsy of the wallpaper is a fine match to the tasty franks in (and out) of their [&

Hi from Rick, Greg, Colleen, and Chris at the Integratron and part one of the California leg of our epic road trip. The hubster and I got up early, early, early in Bisbee to make it here in time, and did, but only by the skin of our teeth and maybe disobeying a speed limit or […] The post

Sleepy head hubster and our favorite watch dog. Cuties! Telepoem Welcome to part two of our Arizona journey. Flagstaff, this first bit, reminds me of Boulder or Breckenridge when I was a teenager – laid back and lovely, breezes flowing, nice people and cool hippie shops (I bought rocks and crystals, of course). We

The Chiricahua Mountains – how cool is that name? We saw dirt devils galore. Kinda cool. Almost there… Hello from Bisbee! This is the Lavender Pit Mine – the town’s bread and butter up until 1974. It was mostly mined for copper, with turquoise and other stones serving as lovely byproducts. It̵

This post is actually kind of funny, not haha but curious. Because I like order, this is actually the end of our trip, but it seemed silly to have a little New Mexico here and a little there. So welcome to my neatly boxed brain of chaos. This same brain can’t get over how green it […] The post

Southbound… Duran, New Mexico I’ve got a thing for windmills. The lovely Carizozo Cafe treated us right. We had a delicious lunch, and our server shared a piece of his birthday cake with us. So sweet! Organ Mountains Told ya so. Pecans For my nephew. The New Mexico State Uuniversity campus – I thought t

Driving north Friday afternoon, May 19th. May 19th, snowy Colorado cold, my heart cratered and crushed, Chris Cornell dead and gone, and me and the hubster with tickets to a Soundgarden show that will never come to be. Life is full of surprises, some magical in their beauty, some terribly sad. And these photos, taken [&#

May flowers and my favorite smiling faces. The gorgeous rocks and formations of Palmer Park. The peachy indian paintbrush was the first I spied this year, followed by the usual red just around the bend on the trail. I never grow tired of spying wildflowers, giving happy little shouts (not unlike a Bob Ross happy tree) [

A Friday look at Sunday’s long walk downtown, a most excellent 8.5 miles round trip, which actually tuckered out Ms. Juni B. It is possible! We stumbled upon the jackpot of coins shortly after leaving home, with me gasping at our good luck. I never did count it, but would wager a guess of just […] The

At last, as I hoped, we received our best snow well into spring, two storms in one week, beautifully blanketing the land, finally whitening our most revered neighbor, and sending Juni B. into paroxysms of glee! I, this morning, with remnants of meals past, made a most delicious bread pudding, not quite in celebration, b
