Dec 19, 2011 - A very cold south Arizona

Thanksgiving at Paws and Hooves! We joke the 3rd time is the charm. We had made 2 previous attempts to have Turkey Day with them, but various complications prevented us from making it. We were just thrilled that we could spend the time with these two very special people, Carolyn and Rosanna. We had a vegetarian Thanksgiving with the main course being stuffed Portobello Mushrooms. What a treat. Carolyn is an amazing cook. She took one Erloom Squash and made a version of mashed sweet potato and a desert that you would never know was the...

Oct 10, 2011 - Naco, Arizona

10/10 – 10/25 It took us three days to drive 503 miles to Naco, Arizona (SR381, US285, US82, US70, I-25, I-10, SR90, SR92, Naco Hwy.).

Got tooth problems and need to see someone. Prices in Mexico are a fraction of what they are in the U.S. and everyone says the service is just as good as you can expect in the U.S., maybe better. We'll see. By the way ... we did resist the "sales pitch" for an RV Resort Membership up in St David. Still got enough money left to maybe fix my teeth ......

Jan 12, 2008 - Bisbee, Border and Coronado Monument

Bisbee and Coronado Monument Saturday we drove down to Bisbee, and drove around the narrow streets taking pictures. It's a darling little town with very narrow streets and quaint little shops. It sits in a little valley, nestled in among oak trees, evergreens and palm trees, all growing in the same area. Neither one of us is into that type of shopping, so we just drove around and took pictures. There was a super huge, deep mining pit where they still do copper mining. We then drove down to Nacos, which sits on both sides of the...
