Nobody's Opinion

Nobody Flashes

It’s Sunday. Yesterday we lost an icon, Justice Scalia, probably the most conservative voice on the Supreme Court, a great blow to the country. More about that tomorrow.

Today, I wanted to show where I was last week…a Missouri Nobody went to the sand of Arizona…for the first time. Having only seen Cactus’s in John Wayne movies, you can imagine how silly I was, when I saw my first desert and walked around all the desert rocks and plants in amazement saying things like…”Wow…look at THAT!” and “Where are the lizards?” “Where are the scorpions?” “Where are the wild horses?” I was MORE than annoying.

Nobody likes to note that Phoenix was VERY clean, the people were a lot nicer than the people here in the Midwest,  and that’s mostly because there are very few natives, and the natives were complaining that it was too…HOT. (86 degrees) Yes, complaining to a couple who had just left Missouri where the temperature was 9 degrees.

Having said that…during rush hour they were…insane.

Anyway, Phoenix is a very pretty state, and CLEAN. They must have little desert gremlins with trash bags that come out at night and sweep.

Here’s some of my Arizona vacation:

Nobody: Look! Who piled up all those rocks?

Can't see sunsets like THIS in my back yard.

Can't find this sunset even from my FRONT yard.

Male cactus chases female cactus. Pretty exciting!

To the natives no big deal. To a girl from MO...weird.

  1. No…we flew…Someday, with more time, I plan to drive out West. And I agree…as a city, it’s pretty nice.

  2. Did you drive? There’s nothing like a drive across the Country to restore your faith in America! I lived for 18 months in Phoenix back in the eighties. If you like cities, it’s not bad.
