Ancient Wonder Next Door

We often travel far to see an ancient site sometimes asking a local for a review only to find  that they haven’t even heard of their local attraction.  We were surprised until we realized we had done the SAME THING in our hometown.  Since our revelation we are determined to explore more sites nearby   In fact we had a lot of fun recently at the Signal Hill Petroglyphs located in the Saguaro National Park West just  few miles away.P1220906-001

We stop to to imagine what the artist was trying to convey with these symbols.2017-12-31_12-41-33_000Looking over the valley from this site I can see how it would have been chosen as a beacon for travelers.lrg_dsc04594   I have to say it’s been fun discovering adventure right in our own back yard.

New Year & I’m Alive

Feeling like I was wasting this beautiful Arizona weather we decided to go for a quick hike today.  It almost ended our lives.  Oncoming truck swerved out to pass heading for us head on.  G slammed on the brakes and swerved and I tell you it was only INCHES away.  The car he was passing had faces of shock, we were shocked too. We talked about it way too much as neither of us could believe we are still alive.   I think it is a perfect metaphor for the beginning of 2018. Hang on it’s going to be a hell of a ride!

Haunted Delivery

How many times has this happened to you? It’s late & you know your own house so why turn on the light right?  WELL becuase  out of the corner of your eye you COULD  see  a giant white  ghost lurking in the dark! 9feb3ad8-dfa2-4ba7-af18-bbb57c3f421cActually it’s a pool cover rolled up  in a bag that nevertheless scared the holy poop out of me. UPS  delivered the giant box after dark so G opened it up & put it in the kitchen to take out at first light. THE REST of the story is that  about a half hour later, I shufled back to the kitchen, left the light off and jumped again! Stupid haunted pool cover.   MORAL of the STORY: While it’s fun to have short term memory when rewatching a Netflix series, forgetting there is a spooky haunted pool cover in the kitchen is recipe for multiple frights.
