     Crash course with our oldest this afternoon in driving like a pro. 16 is just around the corner *cringe* He did super awesome with handling our redneck pickup down the empty road we found. And for the first time in a stick shift---he did hella good driving our car too. Practice makes perfect.-----I have to say it was a very bumpy start--but he is a very quick leaner for sure.  My first car was a stick shift, and I know I learned slowly.   And after bouncing my dads head off the window a few times.  Heck some days I feel I am still learning how to drive a stick.  My wife says she can not drive a stick, but she can drive a 16 wheeler, so I always find this statement hard to believe.  For motivation--I was going to say the car may be his some day soon, but I am not sure it is really motivation.  Being in bigger towns with lots of cops, it is very hard to get the needed practice in.   Most of the kids I knew in Wyoming could drive anything with wheels by the time they were 12.  But there are also so many wide open areas to learn how to drive.  Many were the worse thing you could hit would be a fence post of stubborn cow. 

    **"Last night I decided to drink 100 Bud Lights--I started to loose track some where around midnight!"**--Heard this in a song this morning while heading to the dump.   Now I want to collect great drinkin' lyrics.  

                                                      As is usually true   the truth hurts.


                                                                So where is my treat??

Sign I found while roaming around in California a few months back.
Sadly the coffee shop was closed on this day.
Silly Motel 6   does this mean I can or can't smoke??

Wake Up!

     Hello All!   This page alone just hit 32,000 views  so I want to thank you all again.   No matter what might have actually brought you to this page.  I hope missing out on all that porn was worth it while you roamed around here for a bit.  And that you keep checking out this page and all of my pages.  To continue to find out what all the fuss is about.  If you wish to take a few more seconds away from your porn viewing action, please also share this page!   I talk about coffee a lot.  I post about coffee a lot also.  It is a great topic.  It is a mind opening topic and many times my only life blood for sure.  I find myself still working graves at work and I feel just like a Zombie.  But not the kool kind of Zombie that kicks butt.  I just float through life at the moment.  Not really enjoying any of it, or really giving my full to any of it.  Especially in my home life.  But the same can be said for my work "life" or the time that I set aside to "sleep."  I live on caffeine and all of the caffeine is killing my stomach and body system.   It also seems to be killing everything about me.    For all of you that really don't care about any of this----I will stop b*tching now and get on to some jokes.  Or attempts at jokes.  Although my sleep deprived mind may very well find them much more appealing, funny, and or sexy than you do.  But what do I care, at least I am amused!

I am a lucky man.
This is a picture before my grave yard shifts/Zombie life
Maybe God   or anyone would be  a much betterer co-pilot??
But what do I know?
I don't understand how a plane can just disappear.
And yet it keeps happening.
                                                  Century Link is NOT any better  by the way.

Welcome to my life every day!
I had never been to a drive through Best Buy Before this.
Three thumbs up!
This is a picture I took a few months ago in California were everything is bass ass backwards anyway.  I think every bad law I saw in Oregon and Washington started in sunny CA  were like here in Arizona all that sun quickly messes up peoples brains.  Anyways, does this mean I can smoke in my motel room or not?   Silly Motel 6
It's still July so this is still funny!
I mostly post this because our boss the other night wore  a shirt similar to the man standing up in this picture.
I kept telling people that I had found Waldo-all night and when she over heard me---gave up on being in trouble and went full  by calling her Waldo all night. 
I bet she did not find it funny and B will never wear that top to work again.
Weather she thinks I am working or not.
                                                                             True story.
                                                                         So does my wife. 

Today's picture of the day comes from Bellingham, WA.
And this clock is telling me it is about time to eat!
Time stands still for no one   and no matter what you are doing, how Zombie like you feel, or how un productive you feel, to better yourself or keep your great family    you need to figure it all out.  Quickly.

I am slowly working on MANY new posts.
As always thank you for being patient!!
Including many new ideas and lots of Exploring!
Next post will once again feature my business of the week. 
Today we again roam around amazing Tucson. 
This was a few months ago when I first started my new and amazing job at the Casino.
I love my new job.  Maybe not the hours   but everyone has to start some were.
The customers and staff is amazing.
For several reasons I will not mention the name here  but if you can recognize the spot --more power to  you  and please come to visit.   I am working the dreaded grave yard shift and you can wake me up!
Day I officially filled out my new hire paper work a few months back.
Almost three months ago now---wow!
New name badge with a full cup of coffee-and a new job   what could be better?
Right after that fun I had some time for some Exploring.
San Xavier Mission
Just down from the big casino you may find Mission Street.   
A great stop for some Exploring for sure.
Tucson is full of missions for sure--I have pictured a few in the past.
This is a large one for sure. 
From the parking lot there is lots to Explore.
From the vendors to several buildings.
Even the surrounding walls are amazing.
Inside the walls are lined with amazing art.
Allowing for some great shots for sure--none of my pictures do this place justice for sure.
If you are really lucky---you can visit during a service.
Each and every wall is covered.
Just to the left of the main building is a smaller shrine.
Filled with candles.
The smell is amazing and hits you long before you enter inside.
It was now time to stretch my legs and Explore outside.
Nearby is a small mountain side to check out.
I saw all kinds of wildlife while roaming the trail--but each was to quick for me to actually capture on film.
Mighty lions mark the way.
Framed view!
Another shrine just past the might lions.
From above rocks spell out all kinds of encouragement.
Actual green country side is VERY rare in Arizona.
Mission from above
On the route into the mission is this large cemetery.
In my defence I did not see the signs to NOT take pictures until I had snapped this one.
I guess posting it kind of shows I am fully guilty.
Several abandoned buildings can also be found to Explore.
Speaking of abandoned buildings--I always find them a thrill to check out.
This is just off of I-10 around the 6th Street area.   I did not venture inside any of these buildings  but would love too!
Even the sign is impressive.
City officials want to tear this sign down because it is an eye sore. 
But I really like it.
The back side offers a truckers special--I am not sure what that is,
but also am not sure if it is not still offered--it is Sixth Street and all.

 This motel features a bar or two and several pools.
And has defiantly seen better days.
But still looks like an amazing place to check out.
I recall many years ago when I was younger and stupider--
Jumping a fence or two in Springfield, Oregon   to a sight were they were tearing down a huge old hotel.
I have not pictures but the place was an Eire mixture of fascinating, spooky, magnificent, and fully wonderful. 
Several of us roamed and ran through the halls and rooms waiting to just suddenly fall through a floor board.
At one point my buddy jumped out a window and landed on a nail---he later got to get a tetanus shot. 
I parked near by at a long ago abandoned
gas station.   You can just make out the towers from the VA in the background.
Many motels that should be abandoned can be found in this area.  And I will do a full post on these very soon.   After staying or almost staying in several over the last few months.
Another terrific sign
Across the street from the old gas station.
Tucson really is full of art of all kinds.
Next post
Finds all of us in Tucson once again.
Any guesses as to were we Explore??
Here are some picture hints.
