Last night I had done all the pre-trip stuff. Camry hooked up. Waste dumped. I was up early for me, and was outta there by 9:30 am. Gassed up about a quarter mile away, and finally released my emergency brake.

Most of the history can be found on signs around town, telling you who shot who on that particular corner. There were plenty...

I love Arizona, nice being back here. Some things have changed, some things are still the same. Last week there was a couple of rain showers, pretty rare around here. But I forgot about the smell of the desert after some rain comes through. Some times it smells like creosote, or just a unique aroma from all that desert dirt finally getting wet. Hard to describe, but you don’t forget it.
Scottsdale, near Phoenix, is going through changes. It calls ...

Louisville went down in a very tough game, so close. A free throw away from victory.
Looks like the birthday boy is going to win our basketball bracket contest.
Happy Birthday Dad!
