Cornfield + Summer in Arizona = This

So, I’m confused… 

Here in Maricopa out by where I live there are quite a few of these Cornfields


I’m driving home and got to thinking…

(scary, I know)


With Arizona being 110 – 115 degrees and having a dry, hot one of these

Shouldn’t this field look more like this? 

Now that I think about it….There are cows near by so if we use them for this….

Then we are all set!!

Caution…Extreme Heat Makes You Loopy

Ok, I think I have been in the heat too long today. Yes, I think the 116 degrees is making me a little wacky. I’m use to being cooped up in my store where it is at least 80. To make things worse, I was changing door locks in a house with no air. So inside must have been like 142 or something. You know the hot where sweat is dripping down you and you are getting stickier and stinkier by the minute.

Aren’t you glad I’m sharing this salty tasting moment with you?

When I finished, I was ready for a nap. But I’ve discovered in my life that napping while driving is a bad thing to do. Damn other drivers just don’t understand why you are weaving in their lane.

I even stopped at my favorite place in the world….QT (Quick Trip – the best gas station in the world) to get me a tea. OMG, it was good. Problem is, it went from cool to hot in a matter of minutes.

Needless to say, I have only an hour or so to do my daily post. So this is what you get. My sweaty, hot adventure for the day. Tomorrow, I have a new friend to introduce you too. And he is very adventurous. I think you will love him.

As for the locks? That was fun. I was teaching my niece how to change them. She was a quick learner. Yep, that means she made the same silly mistakes I did right after we learned not to put them in upside down. I’m telling you, it’s the heat. It makes you do stupid things even when you know better.

But I was proud of her. Always love having a new person to torture with knowledge.

I’m just rattling now. I’m still hot, brain is still fried and if left alone with the keyboard too long, I might just tell you every waking moment of my day.

Although I did have a great dinner with my family for my nephew’s 15th birthday which is tomorrow. Boy were we all stuffed. I’m pretty sure the Molton Cakes did us all in. So, see, I’m still rattling. I’ll just end with this….



Love ya


Ok, tomorrow I’ll be funnier. My brain cells should be back to normal after some sleep and air conditioning.     😀

The Heat Makes People Lazy…Beware


It’s no secret that it gets hot here in Arizona. It’s been 105 – 110 for over a week now.

The problem when it finally hits 100 degrees longer than a day or two, is that people’s brains become fried. Tempers get short and the “stupid” comes out.

Stupid and Tempers do not go well together either.

I could go on forever about the stupid things that happen, but I’d rather share them individually throughout the summer.

Today, I had several complaints from customers, employees and even myself today. What are the odds, we all experienced the same special type of “stupid” today?

It’s not secret the heat zaps us of our energy and ability to think. What you might not know, is this lack of energy is so strong that when we get in our vehicles, we lose the ability to turn our head when we back up. Yep, that turning of our head is so strenuous, that to even attempt might cause immediate nap time.

So we just back up, tossing caution to the wind, and letting the dice roll.

Who cares if there is a car coming…my smart car can take down your SUV

Who cares if a kid is walking behind us….stupid kid shouldn’t be in the street anyways

Who cares if the bicyclist is back there….ride on the sidewalk stupid!

Who cares if the lady with the baby stroller is passing….I’m sure she isn’t attached to the munchkin…

Who cares …I’m tired and it is too much work to turn my head to look!  Is it nap time yet??

Who cares?

Who cares?!

I care dang it!!!   



But I will tell ya, the only fun part of this stupidity is when it happens to others. Then it is freaking hilarious….

Just don’t hit the Pink Truck….

Today Fall Came in Arizona ~ April 23rd

fall I bet it seems odd to think about fall coming when it is 101 degrees at 5pm but today it did.

Many of you probably experience the changing of the leaves and the joy of raking them up. Here in Arizona, plants, bushes and trees have learned to survive without water so we usually don’t deal with this fun chore often delegated to the munchkins (children) in your life since we really have no leaves on most of our trees.

However today, Fall came. Yep, Fall arrived on April 23rd.

We have a tree called a Paloverde tree whose small leaves turn bright yellow in the spring. And I guess the past couple of days of 100+ degrees was just too much for them to handle. Today they decided to make a break from it and spread their yellow love across parking lots every where.


Fall in April


These little yellow suckers are all over the pavement, cars, islands, you name it, of the shopping center. A sea of yellow every where.

Only we don’t have to rake them.

Nope, the breeze just carries them away over the next few days. I’m thinking New Mexico will be yellow by next Tuesday when they all arrive there.

Today, this sight put a smile on my face and I hope it gives you a small one as well as I bring you the Arizona version of Fall in 101 degrees.
