I remember that Lance. He was such a nice young man.

minstrel hussain boy

one of the things i have pointed out to people a bunch of times is that when they look at where i grew up in arizona they talk about "desert."

to me, it was, and remains, a playground, lumber yard, game ranch, and open air market.


mhb, tell 'em about flash floods from sudden storms, cannonading down formerly-dry washes at speeds that can and do kill. Or about saguaro, cholla, prickly-pear, and the flowers that bloom so gloriously in those deserts on the occasions when it's rained.

Love the state, hate the politicians there. I can only assume all those damned snowbirds from the Midwest decided to stay year-round rather than going home in the spring, and they brought their "Main Street" narrow-mindedness with them.

Nice to see the Wallabees again. "regret is a default emotion"??? Hmmm.
