Exciting News!

As I said before, changes are coming to this blog, Stay tuned. I'm working on it and hope to be ready within a month.

Meanwhile, now that Labor Day is over and school started with all the traffic headaches means that the snowbirds will be coming back to Arizona before too long, like October with some trickling in in late September. The result is that the movies, restaurants, clubs, and sports sites will be over-run with old people and the entrepreneurs will be happy about that. You won't be able to go anywhere without bumping into old, retired, fat people talking a mile a minute in loud voices. They compete with each other to see who can laugh and talk the loudest. They want everyone to know they're from Minnesota, Michigan, Montana, Canada, New Jersey, New York, Wisconsin, and wherever else they can get away from. Ah, yes, the annual exodus. There is only one thing to do, wear earplugs like in that Dalhart, Texas, motel that issues them to everyone who checks in for the night. All night long it's trains and trucks whizzzing by within 100 feet of the motel.

Well, a person gets used to it, just like the old cowboy out on the range sitting his saddle in all that quietness. You just get used to it.     


  1. During our travels I've discovered the downside of being somewhere really nice is that other people will come and join you - and they're almost never quiet when the do.

  2. Our little town of 1200 has several hundred to several thousand extras around most of the summer, right now its getting pretty quiet. I am looking forward to sitting in front of the fire with my feet up and doing some writing - oh and planning a trip to Arizona. :-)

  3. You get them, too? They can be fun or a pain in the ___!
    Maybe we can get together and have lunch or something while your in AZ. Just send me an e-mail when you get near:

  4. I can't wait to see the changes on your blog, Oscar. Good luck to you!
