I wish I filmed that…

Wow! I’m sitting to blog about the last couple of days and I can’t remember where I was. It seemed like I crossed into three different states (Arizona, Nevada, and Utah), and stayed in a couple of motels. We left Phoenix late and only made it to Wickenburg on account of the smell of food in … [Read more...]

Kitt, koffee (not), and kurves

We left Tubac and headed towards Arivaca for coffee. It was a bummer; the coffee shop is closed Tues-Thur. Those are nice hours, three days off a week. We sat at an outdoor table and had snacks and water. We continued rolling through the curves until we found ourselves at the foot of Kitt Peak … [Read more...]

Is that a shit truck I’m following?

We left Oro Valley and headed towards the mountains. Mount Lemon is the highest peak in the range at 9,157 feet. We crossed the mountain a little further south on Redington Road. We winded through the suburbs of East Tucson until sprawl gave way to property with acreage. Soon we found ourselves back … [Read more...]

NASCAR, reunions, and the road

I flew down to Phoenix and met up with Michael. Michael is coming back to Anchorage (yay). While in Phoenix, I got the opportunity to see a NASCAR race. Michael’s family drove down from Utah and we all went to the races. What a riot. It was more exciting than I thought it would be; there were … [Read more...]

The names will be changed to protect the innnocent

What a crazy week! My anticipated weekend getaway in Seattle turned into a week-long marathon of driving, meeting family, and funeral-related activities. I lost my grandmother last Saturday. It was the passing of an Era. Her life touched many, as apparent to the number of folks that came by to … [Read more...]

Would you like some cleavage with your cappuccino?

Welcome to Seattle! A quick three day trip to sip coffee, shop, and visit the motorcycle shops of the greater Seattle area were my plans. There are many good things about this area; good coffee, good food, my daughter lives here, great culture and art. The coffee is so good here that, perhaps, … [Read more...]

Cinco de Mayo

It's been a long time. I've neglected my blog. Between recovering from broken bones, heart surgery, and trying to launch a new web platform, well enough said. I'll use this tool until I have the other platform ready. Since my broken arm has not healed well enough to cover the distance this weekend, … [Read more...]

Getting back in the saddle

So, two holidays down and one more to go. I sit here in Phoenix, Arizona (eating the best darn avocados) dusting my brain and still playing the one-handed typist game. But the sun is shining!  I'm told it's -4 degrees in Anchorage and there are no words - only a smile. I will be in Phoenix a couple … [Read more...]

What’s with all the squirrels?

Okay Okay, Many of you have been asking me what my infatuation with squirrels is about. It's time I come clean. I actually really, really hate the vermin. It has been a hate-hate relationship for some time. Squirrels and I go back a long time in our battle to see who can have the last … [Read more...]

I’ll be your Huckleberry…

So, I continued north to Flathead Lake, Montana. What a gorgeous place! It was so pretty there – especially when you climb up to the highway rise just before you see the size of this monster lake. This has got to be one of the nicest lakes. I thought, "I could live here." I found myself saying that … [Read more...]
