Stay Back!

         So I have many pages online.  Years ago when I had no real job---although I am kind of tired of hearing how serving tables is not a real job, I might of started to many pages and such online.  Some have basically disappeared completely and some I ignore to much.   This one has been going on for years now. I really enjoy it   because like in real life I say what I wish---BUT you the reader have to physically click on the blog page to read my rants and such.   And many of you do!   I really wish more of you commented on these thoughts ---but that's a whole new story in itself.   In real life and on my Facebook page--the rants and gripes come to you for free---but you might not be able to get away from them.  ;)   So I try to keep those complaints tamer and to a minimum.   Try is the key word there.   Here---although I have not really went on any big angry rants for awhile now, guess I am just to happy a person,   I tend to put more of my true thoughts into this page.   Because well, I can  and because as I said, you have to click several buttons to get to this page---I am not forcing anyone to read any of this.   And this page acts as a journal of my life---so great fun to read ---at least for me.   Somehow more fun the more I drink....    I kid!   
     Another page that I personally think is amazing---I also claim as my own.   My Exploring Arizona page!   I am trying to greatly up the reader ship of this blog page, but usually just don't have the free time.   Please check out the recent updates and share the links if you enjoy!    

Where are you Exploring today??

    And now for some more deep and thought-less quotes for you to enjoy and or steal.   How do you think I got them?   ;)   .....

                            *You don’t have a great day---You make a great day!

                        *I about got hit while jogging—Getting in shape IS killing me.---Round is still a shape right?? 

                                              *It’s called Facebook, not Assbook.

                  *I think I’m going to start smoking—to see if I lose my smokers cough.

                                    *If you smoke after sex, you are doing it to fast!

                                          *Turns out, chess is nothing like checkers.

                *Can restin’ your cell phone on your junk—give you cancer, down there?

                         *If you have no TV, what does all your furniture face toward?

                                                               *Sheep are safe!?!---If you didn't grow up in Wyoming---don't ask.   Although several of my past blog posts attempt to explain all this.  

                                                                *I didn’t get the memo!

                               *Do these pants make me look fat? No but your ass does!

                                *That went over about as well as a turd in a punch bowl.

I believe this is fake   
but it should be posted up across Arizona!
Worse state I have drove in for left lane drivers ---easily. 

    **"Does "all expenses paid" include bail money ?---
Some what related, I've been told that if you carry a baseball bat in yo car, which I do, that your lawyer will thank you if you also always carry a baseball glove and ball with you

Real or not   Wally World got in a TON
of issues for this advertising. 
By gun haters and the PC cops alike.  ;)

Wine Wednesday at the casino just happens to land on date day. Coincidence? 🍷 Cheers! 😎. Forever and a day!! 😍
   My post online earlier in the week.     Wish it would have been a betterer day for sure.  But I was off work.   So there's major plus right there    although wine Wednesday is at the casino I work at.     

Newest addition to the homestead and maybe my bed under the stars tonight?? I love our yard but like me it needs lots of work

Nearing 100 ounces of change. In case y'all were curious what that looked like. As a server at the casino change adds up fast. In fact I call a table leaving lots of change my old peoples jackpot! Another of the many perks working at the casino is that we often get poker chips as tips too. 🤑
   And no----the above money holder is not a bong----     It is supposed to be an adult beverage holder--with the tap at the bottom     That is how you know how old I am getting, I keep my change in my beer glass!   

             My new bandana   -------Some thoughts on all the latest statue pulling down, south going crazy news of late in my next blog post.   

          In one of my last Exploring blogs I talked about rock painting and hiding----   and our whole family  is kind of hooked on it.   I did not paint or find the above rock---but coffee!   Next I will expand on my thoughts on all of this.    And it really is fun!

Close Your Eyes For Full Eclipse Experience Now

                               From right off our deck at the homestead.   

             Hello all this fine, but warm day!   I was not going to post today, but I find myself more angry about things again in the last few daze, and since I do not have the time to disappear on a hike, just yet---these posts are very mind calming for me.  They don't fix anything, but neither does talking about it on here, so your safe from that --for today.   Just put on my fake Wally World smile-that is greatly cracking, but still can only fully be recognized as fake by my wife.   Make some big tips to annoy the haters even more--and suck it up to a bad week, year it seems this year   but hey the good still out weighs the bad for us.   For sure.   
        So the big eclipse is this Monday---and I was just reading about how prime viewing states are already seeing a huge increase in traffic.   Some how Wyoming is a prime state to view the eclipse?   And motel rooms are going for $2000 a night!   Wow.   I mean this sounds very kool, but I am not traveling to see something all I have to do is look up to see.   Or close my eyes---  BAM I am now in a prime viewing area---no special glasses needed.   Anyways if your city or state is in a great viewing spot---I'm sorry.  Unless you work for tips --and these touristy nerds defiantly seem to have cash with them.   Here in Arizona is supposed to be far viewing in the AM   BUT they are already talking rain that day, so it would appear about how it would in Oregon and Washington state.   

     I just read an article last night saying that the scientists miss calculated and the big eclipse is not really until 2018.   Can you imagine?   Now I have only seen this in one place, and I can not find the article again of course.   I would think if this was suddenly found true, it would be posted every where!   But again     can you imagine?    

                                         Speaking of Wyoming   I am past due a trip back home--and one is coming up-it now looks like the end of next month!   Due to many hardships and such and the fact that I wish to take ten daze off  of work --and work has a hard time giving me two days off in a row, this trip has been a long time coming.  Once I officially have the days approved and the plane tickets I will share more.  But of course I will have tons of pictures from this trip.   And I am really glad the home coming will not happen during the eclipse.   For sure if it actually happens next year!   

  King Ropes is huge in Sheridan Wyoming and across this great nation.   I have a red Ropes Hat on display---that I have never worn.   This one above just happens to be for the school I graduated from    if anyone happens to want to get a me a welcome home present.   ;)   I thinks it would take over my display wall.   

  Speaking of this great nation---WTF is going on in the south and beyond with statue and skin color hate?    More of my thoughts on all this in my next blog post.   

         Where are you Exploring today?    No really---I need ideas for places to take pictures and hike.    Our Exploring and pictures from across Arizona

                           And now time for some more motivation for y'all!!?

    *I’m going to open a liquor store and call it the 13th step. And then open a topless coffee shop called Perkies right beside it.*

                                           *No brains no headaches!"**

                                            *My poo smells like roses!

                                  *I practice safe sex—by leaving the lights on.

                      *I am not random—My brain just functions much faster than yours.

                        *Have you ever stopped to think-and then forgot to start again?

            *If at first you don’t succeed –destroy ALL evidence that you tried.
            *If at first you don’t succeed –Bungee jumping is not for you.

                        *If you don’t have anything nice to say—Come sit by me!

*One cannot fully understand something—Until you can explain it to your grandmother.

             *Everyone is entitled to be stupid, but many people abuse the privilege!

                                      *I will not have fun with educational toys!

                                      *The best person I know lives in my mirror!--Just don't try to hug them --you WILL hurt yourself.   At least don't try more than once.   ;)

  ** People need to stop putting flyers on my car ! I DO NOT wish to see a band named " parking violation" at the "Courthouse"**----I have received this flyer several times through the years, they must be getting very popular as a band.  


                                                          And now your moment of Zen......

One fine day while Exploring Bisbee Arizona

Heard it is already seeming fall like in Wyoming. 
Although cooler weather, I long for, here in the desert--
Wyoming   this is too soon!
Especially since I have not yet had the time to come home and visit. 
I am confident in my winter driving---not so much in the tourists driving, while they zoom out of the sate as soon as the snow starts to fly. 
Ironically to come to the desert. 
I have been away so long, I guess I am a tourist to my home state.   ;)

Our puppies thinking my typing means they are getting a treat!

Great coffee shop just down the road.  
I need to dig up all my past pictures with coffee cups in them.   

      I like to add inspirational quotes and thoughts to each of my blog posts!   No matter how un motivational you might find them!  Today I decided to start out the post with some classics.  Read through my old posts and collect them all!   Just like Pokemon.   At work I am trying to collect all the write ups.   Like each and every kind of write up.   Because   this paper work is kind of  a joke, and a slap on the wrist   and mainly because, I do what I want.   At least at work, were my wife does not work.   ;) Speaking of un motivational     I was reading some past blog posts---and there are a lot of them to enjoy, by the way---and found one were a reader had actually sent me a comment!   I wish more of y'all would send me comments.   You can easily do it from the bottom of each blog entry.  And you don't even have to share your name.    After the huge initial shock of getting a comment wore off, I actually read it.   Well re read it, because this was a post of mine from like 2012, in short the reader was not a fan, but thought my blog page was perfect for kiddos, not adults, if not indeed written by a kid.  Living in the desert it is great to have yet another fan!   In short   I love your comments   all of them.  Especially the ones that help me make my pages betterer for all.   I am also fine with being the only one entertained by what I say and or write.  Because at least I am amused.  Kind of like when I am getting a write up at work.  

    Speaking of fun reads----my Exploring Arizona blog page is seeking more readers!   No bad reviews, yet!    Check out all the past posts as you wait for me to add more posts.  As we Explore Amazing Arizona through pictures.

Friday, August 11, 2017


        Hello everyone this beautiful August morning!   I had great plans of sleeping in today, but way before my alarm clock went off, I found myself just laying in bed staring at the ceiling.  I wanted to be productive before work, so far except for making some cups of coffee disappear, I have not accomplished to much.    There is so much to do at our homestead, that I often look at it all and just kind of get over whelmed.   I do have some extra free time from work coming up, but a good deal of that will be on the road.  Good for me and my nerves, not so good for getting anything done at home.  ;)   I have had time to post some new material in my Exploring Arizona blog sight!   Still super behind on this sight-----but I am sure you will enjoy it.   Full of our Exploring and pictures.    Check it!

             So for what ever reason Blogger does not want to corporate with pictures today----I can't add any to this very blog    whatever I choose to do.    So imagine very funny pictures here.   Ones that make you laugh and laugh.   Ones that make you pee ---just a little bit from laughing so hard.   Than imagine clicking on old blogs from this very page----where I could actually post pictures.    And laughing and laughing at them.   Or at me for posting such things.   Your choice.   Just click away!   It's better than a kick in the crotch!   

   The rainy season ---best season in the desert   is still upon us!   Which is nice because we are back to triple digit temps in greater Tucson.   Yesterday I looked out the main doors at work, and it was suddenly dumping rain again.   Not really dumping  because the rain was coming completely side ways very quickly and very heavy.    Although I wished to go run out in the cooling rain, the covered entry way was full of people waiting for a break in the storm, to rush to there cars.   Our part of the casino, is the old school side and we just have swamp coolers.   Still betterer than being fully in the heat, but in the rainy season, not by much.   It just makes the air heavy and humid and feels like being in a rain forest.   
   Yesterday was very busy at work    hoping for a repeat tonight, big tips, no Wammies!
Busy is good for tips and business of course but hard on sore feet and tired souls.   We had a server call in ----and I at least, was so into proving that we could handle it without calling in another server, that I was going to go down trying.   This put us on a two server floor.   Good for tips ----maybe not as good for customers, when it is busy.    And it got nice and busy as soon as the rain let forth.   Luckily most customers are very forgiving if you if you explain you are short on workers.   Especially if they do not have time to think about how many millions the casino is pulling in /per how many workers   they have on.   Forgiving but not always that generous in the tip department.    Although if you keep having table after table, even if they all tip two bucks, you are going home with a stack of tips.   To add to the fun the power  went out for a few seconds.    We were all secertly wishing it would just stay out   I think.   A hard feat   because our side of the casino also has many generators.   Sometimes we are the only restaurant that can remain open in the whole building.   Yeah for us!   We just got new ordering systems through the restaurant, so tech showed up just after the brief outage to make sure the system was still mostly up and running, and to make sure the system had not just clocked all the workers out   during the power out.   

                           **" That's about as lame as s sandbox on a beach!"**

                                 **"Always give 100 percent, unless it's blood."**

                       *I don’t suffer from insanity—I enjoy every minute of it!"**

              ** "It’s not the ups and downs in life that make life difficult—It’s the jerks!"**

                                       **"Say no to negativity!"**

   Found this some where  and borrowed----not sure this information should be enjoyed by anyone, but also found it interesting.   

A pig's orgasm lasts 30 minutes. (O.M.G.!!!) A cockroach will live nine days without its head before it starves to death. (Creepy. I'm still not over the pig.) The male praying mantis cannot copulate while its head is attached to its body. The female initiates sex by ripping the male's head off. (Honey, I'm home . What the...?) The flea can jump 350 times its body length. It's like a human jumping the length of a football field. (30 minutes. Lucky pig! Can you imagine?) The catfish has over 27,000 taste buds. (What could be so tasty on the bottom of a pond?) Some lions mate over 50 times a day. (I still can't believe that pig ...quality over quantity.) Butterflies taste with their feet. (Something I always wanted to know.) Elephants are the only animals that cannot jump. (Okay, so that would be a good thing.) A cat's urine glows under a black light. (I wonder how much the government paid to figure that out.) An ostrich's eye is bigger than its brain. (I know some people like that.) Starfish have no brains. (I know some people like that, too.) Polar bears are left-handed. (Talk about a southpaw.) Humans and dolphins are the only species that have sex for pleasure. (What about that pig? Do the dolphins know about the pig?) Now that you've smiled at least once, it's your turn to spread these crazy facts. (and God love that pig!)

Back In Bisbee!

    Finally a long  awaited update from my Exploring Arizona blog page!!

      Good news--- I have found a file I thought was long gone with many Exploring pictures.  We now  have two vehicles --so I can ultimately Explore more, work and life permitting of course.  And I am about to take off several long stretches from work, so should be able to get some great pictures.  Although my biggest trip involves going back home to Wyoming, so will be mainly "beyond Arizona."   But still cool.    Now to just have time to post --post---post!    Please help me out by sharing this very Exploring blog page if you find you enjoy it.   

  On one of my days off work last week I stayed up all night and got some rare, for me, sunrise pictures.   And than jumped in our rig and did it my way and hit the highway.   I wished for a mind clearing hike after my driving on this day, but found the hike very beyond disappointing.  At least I had some great sights to look at and got some pictures.  Of course.  I hope the views to this here post do not disappoint me.  Although it is a short entry.   Thanks for being a reader, and as always   HAPPY TRAILS!!

   As I said this day started out early  and as I was packing a few supplies in our truck and guzzling some coffee--I noticed the glorious sun coming up.   So the first few pictures here are from our humble homestead.   Some where in the middle of no where  ST David Arizona.  ;)

     It had been raining every day at this point so the clouds were still deciding what they were going to do.    The clouds have been amazing all week long.   

I do not get sunrise pictures nearly enough
But am a firm believer that mornings would be better if they started later
Like around noon.

     As any morning or afternoon I needed coffee.   Especially after staying up all night to get an early start on the road.  And to get an early start in case the clouds decided to break  up and have the full on sun replace there spots in the sky.

My first stop was this fine place in Bisbee. 

One of several really good coffee places in the town. 
I explored the inside area a little bit again but all of the shops were still closed, and than 
left my car were it was----parking is not the easiest in this small town.  
For a quick adventure on foot while I sipped my fine coffee.  

I have been to this amazing town several times, and am always amazed at what new I find to view and Explore.   Several of my blogs are from this town   and I am sure several will be in the future.    
I had planned to make the street viewing short and hike in near by Tombstone Canyon, but more on this in a minute. 

      Just across the street from the coffee shop at the museum I have yet to actually go inside of.  
  Some day!     

Being a mining town still,   many signs tell you to keep out of about any area you are in.

    This town also has some great brew/pubs   but it was much to early in the day to think about such things.     To much. 

This town has an endless supply of art 

I last reported about finding and hiding rocks around the county and beyond and how many people were into it around here.  
I kind of laughed, until I found a painted rock a few weeks back.
Anyways, I was looking the whole time while in Bisbee    but was never sure what was part of someones yard or walkway or such.    

Another great drink    once it is to warm to drink coffee!

Even the vehicles here are painted.

Free store with some very interesting items. 
Set up around some heavily painted remains of buildings.
I did not get any closer   because on the couch to the far right was a 
sleeping homeless man. 
Maybe the free shop owner
but I was not about to find out.

Jam on!

I always enjoy a great sign.
But this one ruined my plans!

Painted right on the wall in front of several houses.

Local designers really put there heads into there work.

This was way up high   near the roof of  a very tall building. 
Kool things can be found at every turn in this amazing town. 

All bottle caps. 
Small part of the collection.
With my head as a shadow.
This shop was not yet open either.

          I than ventured back to the shops connected to the coffee shop and found a bottled water.  Payed way to much for it---for sure.   But this is Arizona and water is good!   And got back on the mighty road.  

    I thought I was then going to wind through Tombstone Canyon and find a good hike to get lost on.   I am fairly sure I did not take a wrong turn, but just seemed to end up in lower Bisbee.   But a part I had never visited before.   So not a full loss.   Were I found the above neat fire station.  And a windy road   but not a very long one.   I also found there was a Circle K in this part of town.   Were I will buy my bottled water and such on my next trip, for sure.   

  Later in the day the clouds came back and let down rain   full force!    
Flooding out the runoff/road leading to our house.    Luckily there is a back way to our home and the houses past us.   So no one was dumb enough to try a pass the fast moving water.  I seem to always be at work when this happens, so this was the first time I got to witness it here.   And of course I had to get some pictures. 

I now wish I would have gotten some live video too.

I have seen similar several times across the state
and it always amazes me how fast these areas go from dry to basically a running river.

Especially since I enjoy a good hike through the run off areas.  

The rain had just about stopped when the kiddos got off there school bus, 
and they asked why I had picked them up. 
I showed them these pictures, and they got it.

Just after we got home the rain started in again.
