                Hello all!  I have not gotten to say that near enough this month.  Greatly slacking in posts on all of my sights.  If you can imagine such a thing.  If you have been to this page --you already know that slacking on posting is a given.  But like at work---" I do what I want!"  I hope that each and every one of you enjoys every post you do come across on this very page.  And on my picture filled Exploring sight.  Were the next post really is going to be about our recent get away from the kiddos and it all, to Phoenix.  I can say it was a great trip.  When we lived closer to the big city, we used to do everything possible not to have to visit Phoenix --ever  although we have several un forgettable stories from there for sure in our past.   But recently we have learned that the town has some amazing things and sights to offer.                                                       

We have a ton of pictures from this trip.
This is in front of a casino.  
A casino that quickly took our cash.  

My beautiful Exploring companion for the trip.  
*forever and a day!

This is actually in Tempe  one of the many suburbs.
We were going to stay at this Motel Six  but found it was a very old one--one of the few before the massive remodels it seems.  In any case above is a picture of the pool---Just beside the pool back gate is the drive through for Arby's   More on this in my Exploring blog post---but I have never seen anything like this before.  And we decided to continue our search for another motel.  Actually we ended up staying at a very nice Motel Six a few exits down the road.  
Keep it classy Phoniex!   ;)

This picture kills me, because my wife looks terrified.  
She started laughing about the pose just after I got this shot.  
I didn't realize I was that rotten of a driver. 
Although we were in a rental car, I may drive a little worse in other peoples cars
Especially when I have full insurance coverage on the rentals.  It costs more, but could save you a fortune.   The dealer made the mistake of telling me I had up to a million dollars worth of coverage.   That's a lot!   To which I replied, after I had signed all the paper work---"I could master a heck of a wreck for a million dollars--like launching/flying the car into the federal building downtown...."                                                                                                                                      People never like my ideas---mostly my wife and my bosses  but all people in general.
Speaking of vehicles---my wife and I are attempting to co own her truck until we can figure out vehicles for everyone involved.  Anyways, she just put these giant eye lashes over the head lights    look closly---and now I don't know if I am man enough to drive this....

So I play waiter at work, and make tips.  I gain lots of coins -quickly.   And my container at home is just about full.   And ready to take to the bank.   I am trying to guess how much is in the holder before I take it to the bank, or someone in my online social network learns were I live and jacks the coins.   My official -un official guess is $525.75 by the way.   If I ever take this heavy mess to the bank, I will report the actual total.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                              And now a few thoughts real quick about this Pokeman Go App crap ---You can download this totally un fun game on your phone---and it tells you when you are close to characters all over your town, and than you attempt to catch them all.  There are only 22,000 different ones by the way.  First off ---although I am all for time wasters--just watch for me on Facebook or my next blog post here---but it seems to me MANY of the people playing this game should be putting half this searching effort into finding a job.  Gasp!  Next people are beyond ridiculous while playing----So much so that some new highway signs are warning people not to play the game and drive---because some fool back east stopped in the middle of the highway   to catch a rare Pokemon and died.  
People are getting nearly arrested because they are looking for the creatures while rummiging in bushes behind police stations.  Etc etc etc   I wish I was making these examples up.  
Yes the stories allow for a greatly entertaining read  but dang it than leads to the Darwin awards.  
                                                                      I don't have any pictures   because I have not caught any of the Dam Pokemon yet----Helen Keller.
