                               Reid Park Zoo Tucson Arizona.   Time stamp is wrong  because we did not live in Tucson than---- My example of how I wish time would slow down just a lil bit this time of year.   

           A hearty Hello to everyone this early afternoon!     It is cloudy outside today  a welcome sight in my eyes.  I do not enjoy the heat one bit, so of course desert dwelling is were I ended up.  Although we realize at night time that it does get chilly in the desert, and quickly.   The day time high on Monday is supposed to be 50  so it should be close to 30 at night   and everyone here is already digging out there parkas because it is cloudy out.  Cloudy but still warm   for sure.  I am daze away from moving fully---without a running vehicle, again.   I will talk more about all of this fun BS soon, but not today.  Tonight is my Friday night at work.  For which I am very thankful!   It has been very busy---with VERY nice sympathy holiday tips for sure.   I am still getting over how close it is to December ---to soon!   With so much to do---I am mainly still just guzzling coffee as I type out this bit of random rambling---hoping to soon have enough coffee in me to at least fake energy for a few hours.   Or at least until I get to work.   That is were I go to sleep.  ;)   With three kiddos at home, I do not get any sleep there.   
                                                                  As always this very blog page has a ton of readers.  And I thank each and every one of you for that!   My Arizona Exploring blog page also is constantly looking for new readers.   Please take a look around and share the page if you enjoy what you see.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                 
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                           Hello   !!  I am your tour guide! 
                                                                                              Speaking of Exploring and road trips and such--when we finally get mobile   yet again, I am past due for a long  mind clearing road trip for sure.  Pictures to come if it ever does happen.  My beautiful wife got my nice camera working again---so I am more thrilled than ever to soon get a chance to use it.   I have been reading a lot about the stand off in the Daxota's  and first have to ponder, how the hell this is still going on?   How are there not thousands of protesters.   Of all races.   As in many conflicts in the past few years, the outcome of this affects us all.   That said, why am I not a part of this  you may ask---practise what you are preaching.     I would love to show up --and be a part of all of this.   Just the photo ops alone would make my day.   But it is an extra long journey with no vehicle.   Maybe if I found the right---also gung ho  travel partner-- this will happen.  

           With Trump--thankfully winning the election --and even more thankfully all of the political ads off of our TV screens   there is lots of talk about building walls and such.  A few thoughts real quick on all of this---and than on to some attempts at jokes for y'alls entertainment.  First off---instead of spending all these Pesos on a huge wall that isn't going to work anyways--plus it would block all the angry celebrities from actually fleeing America since Trump won the election.   Why not construct a giant electric fence across the boarder?  Growing up in the country I know first hand how much even an electric fence to keep cows in stung--especially if you peed on it.   Non of you city boys will understand this fun.  A huge   more electrified fence would be much cheaper, and hours of entertainment for boarder patrol agents and those living in boarder towns.   Just like watching you bug zapper on your back porch---20 times the entertainment!   Heck instead of driving the kiddos around to look at Christmas lights, I would drive them to the boarder next year, and we would all sit by the glow of the glorious electric fence and "oooowwww" and "ahhh" every time a Mexican got zapped or an angry American wanted to get his job back, by sneaking into Mexico.  2nd I just saw a picture were the new boarder wall also blocked off California.   Super idea in my book ---for tons of reasons.   They want to pull away from America anyway.  Electric fence around them until the whole state is gun fearing, weenie lobbyist, and or Mexicans.  Or until the big quake hits and they sink into the ocean, which ever comes first.  
      And lastly C---I also recently saw a picture that was driving local residents mad---showing the new wall to extend around Tucson   leaving us as part of Mexico.   This was for last nights civil war football game    Phoenix not wanting anything to do with Tucson.  For the most part I wish nothing to do with Phoenix   AND I already call Tucson  Little Mexico for many reasons, so it might not be all that bad.   Just sayin'
Mmmmmmm  Coffee!!
My beautiful wife  hangin' at home with the critters.  ;)

                                                                                                                                                                                       Have a great holiday weeksend everyone!   Especially if you are one of the lucky few that has the weekend off!!

Happy Turkey Day 2016!

           So in case you did not get the memo or read the title of this here blog today---today just happens to be Turkey Day!  I hope everyone reading this now, at almost the end of the day had a great day.  Filled with family, food, funky-ness, and other great words that do not start with the letter F.  I am very thankful that I can not see your stuffed self, sprawled in front of the computer screen, with your pants comfortably un zipped and one hand on your computer mouse and the other down you pants.   My Thanksgiving was certainly not story book   again this year.  Nor has been my week or my year this year.  I could easily skip 2016 for the most part- in my memory books.   I guess the best part of the year --by far was the fact that my wife and I became one again!   So much so that we are soon to be moving in with each other AND she even changed her last name back to mine on Facebook AND said we were married again---so it's not official official till it's Facebook official   Duh!   ;)   Other wise I could pretty much not bring up 2016 ever again.   
       Last Friday night  our only running vehicle decided to give up on us, and later we found out it was a paperweight.  What I call expensive items from laptops to cars that no longer work.  I have had to many paperweights in my life time for sure.  More on the long night the vehicle broke down in my next blog posting.  Crazy for sure  as are most of my stories it seems.  I swear the only reason several of my friends still talk to me is that I have 4-5 such stories per week to share with them.  Luckily for y-all most of them make it into my blog posts!  Sadly for me, all of them are true.  So with about a week left on my lease in my overly crappy apartment --Another story I will soon expand on, I find myself back to square one.  Trying to find a way to work, and a way to get the last of my items out of my apartment before the lease is up.  This morning being a holiday--with no city buses running--I called for a taxi two hours before I needed to be at work.  I soon realized --but not soon enough to make it to work on time, that I was not going to get to work on time using a taxi.  Several angry phone calls to the taxi company later, I realized it was time to form a plan C.  I found a $20 bill and started asking random residents in my apartment parking lot for a ride just up the street, but to far to walk, to work.  Unfortunately I live in the ghetto and Tucson---AKA Little Mexico!   No one I approached actually knew English.   Even showing the cash and yelling "El Rido!" was not working.  I approached one mini van full of people and showed them the cash.   They promptly nodded, and started to dig out change  to break my 20.   No!  I want El Rido....    Dam my growing up in the middle of Wyoming and not paying a bit of attention in El Spanish classes in high school!   Long story short---I got to work, and made many of what I call sympathy tips.   The highlight of working any holiday as a server.   I am here serving you, while away from my family....    Usually I eat with my family before or after work, or both on a great holiday.   I even wanted a photo button to wear,  picturing each of my kiddos frowning, to tell the customers I took the shot right before heading to work this morning.   Alas this year--I was not able to eat any of the glorious food my wife and kiddos slaved over----because our vehicle is still dead.  Are you not reading the same story here??  Thankfully they supposedly are saving a plate or two just for me.  
                                                                                                                                             **"There is right and there is wrong and somewhere in between IS life!"**--Family Guy

I am afraid if you want to see more Thanksgiving thoughts and posts, you will have to search this very page and my old Turkey day posts.    
And now for your moment of Zen...

Stop Making Idiots Famous--Unless It's Me!

                                                             Bellingham, WA Exploring                                                                            
               Hello to all this fine day!  Most things are looking up right now for the future and such at least in my book.  A very boring book indeed.  And I have not been able to say that for a long time.  It was almost chilly ---for the desert when I crawled out of bed this morning, searching for coffee!    The major set back right now is my beautiful wife is back in the Dam hospital.  I thought we were past all this crap---she put us through another big scare, but always seems to bounce back.  After yet another air vack to Tucson from the overly crummy Benson hospital, her numbers are doing much betterer -she is getting lots of sleep at the moment, and I have become almost a pro at fielding all the questions from the relatives --keeping both cell phones, to help keep the stress levels down, at least for her.  She always bounces back, but it's tough, especially when she is such an independent person.  Great for when we were seperated  --bad for when the sh*t hits the fan, and the rest of us have no access to anything of hers.  
        I am having yet more issues with my apartments -still.   But moving day is just around the corner!  Not moving out of the country like so many fools are claiming to be doing soon with out new president soon to be in office.   Depending on his status on illegals, many of them might not have a choice on leaving the country.   Through it all --I got a great camera from my wife the other day.   I have not had time to fix my awesome camera and have been using just my cell phone to get pictures for my sights for months now.  I have got to use it a little bit-----and will be posting the pictures and Exploring very soon.    This very sight keeps getting readers, somehow.  And than you all for that!    My Amazing Arizona Exploring blog page also needs more readers for sure.    Please check it out
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                             Tucson Comic Con    Definitely nothing like the show they put on in Phoenix  but pretty darn fun!   Or a picture from the future.....  check out the date stamp   lol

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                             Some of the costumes were beyond amazing.   More on all of this in my Exploring blog VERY soon.   Or check out the above link to see my past post to the Phoenix show.                                                                         

                                        Today I hope to see a ton of Vet posts or at least fun posts. NOT my wall covered in hate, protests, and election----unless it's about the Texas police kicking the Sh*t out of protesters-----Stop making stupid people famous----Just sayin'   I personally voted for Trump,  for a lot of reasons.  For change mostly.   Yes the riots across the country are creating change, but the wrong type of change for sure.  Protesting hate with hate and violence is beyond redundant.  Did you see the election map, loads of people wanted this change---many more people than are out protesting.  I stole this---but wishing Trump to fail, is like wishing harm on the pilot of the airplane we are ALL on.   My buddy is in his early 50's and  he voted for the first time ever this election----also for Trump.  Although I was sure he had voted for George Washington---and stopped getting replies back from him after I asked this.  ;)   Many--many people voted for the first time, ever or in years this election.  Because they cared.  It does not really matter whom they voted for   but that they voted!   This should be whats blanketing the news not protests led by idiots and Trump hate.  And maybe most importantly the fact that Obama is on his way out of the big White House.  Protesters across Texas are getting there asses kicked by Texas state police.   Ceasing riots across the state.  *Awesome sauce*  AND a good view for sure.   Yes it is there right to protest   its no ones right to vandalize anyones property except there own.   Lastly on this chain of thought---for now,   I just read about protests across Portland Oregon---no surprise there.   Oregon loves some good riots.  I became involved in several -by accident just while trying to party in Potland.  And witnessed many while living in Eugene Oregon----land of the hippie.

First Post Of November 2016

             Hello this fine night- almost early morning  in November!   With a new month finally cooler temperatures!!  There are constant reminders that we chose to live in the desert all around us  but the two weeks before Halloween of 90+ temps outside really was more than even desert people should have to put up with.  Last night my wife ended up here to visit me, and we both had issues sleeping, so ended up at Denny's about 2 in the AM.  For the most part, Denny's is always a good choice, especially when one is talking breakfast.  Although my last omelette there tasted more like a kitchen sponge than anything, and really looked like one too.  Than to the near by Wally World for some late night shopping.  It is now almost a week into November so the Christmas section is surprisingly huge.   I love the holidaze  but am SO not ready for any of them again this year.  I am although more than ready for this year to be over with.  Finally looking forward to so many things, good things    after such a crummy year for the most part in sooo many ways.  I will go into more of this with more apartment woo's and the official graduation pictures of mine and such on a later date.  But it is much to late an hour to get to serious.  This very page has so many views  and I thank all of you for this!  And I hope to go back to posting more on this page and all of my super great pages.  My newest Arizona Exploring blog page has so many updates and pictures lined up already it is ridiculous.  I just have been slacking on posting-----Please check out my old posts and thoughts all across Arizona while you wait for new posts and share the links with all your friends to help us grow and make me wish to post much more often.   Check it at

                                                                   **I got a GREAT 12 minute recording in the landlords office were she explained nothing started yelling at me. I got to call her ghetto fabulous and she threatened to call the police on me. Bring on court Mrs slum landlord ----Perhaps most  importantly she refused to take my full rent payment over late fees on made up late fees.   More on this on a later date, but I am beyond ticked off and on a mission.   Not to save my character but to save my credit.  And to ruin these people before they can ruin another single person or family's life.  I was basically fully single when I moved into this place, and yes I should have researched it more, but living in motels was super expensive and the $150 move in deposit was beyond appealing.  Now that I and we are ready to move on with our lives, I should not have to pay for years on choosing to temporarily reside here    no one that works hard -pays there own way---  strives to move forward---does mostly right---  etc should be treated like this.  I will get off my soap box now,  for a lil bit.  

    **"I have this strange urge to actually show up and stand up in the Dakota's if you have no clue whats going on YOU are part of the problem and if your that clueless please dont vote next week."**---- I find all of this beyond crazy on many levels  especially in this day and age.  And not just because I work around natives on a daily basis.
