  • I think I have to employ a real Chuy for Rose and her Food wishes.
    We do what we can.

    Birds watching, that is good. Yesterday we had half a dozen tits swirling among the brushes in the front yard. And of course the always present crows and ravens though they are more on the fields now.

    I went to bed early and I am still sleepy in the morning. It is dark when your rise and it is dark when you go to bed.
    And we are closing on the 0°C temperature.

    Coffee was hot and the Sunday egg just right.

    Another great book would be Radiation and Scattering of Waves by Leopold Belmond Felson and Nathan Marcuwitz. No book for non math nerds.

    • Well, since nothing else is going on, I'll keep torturing people with the places I'd send BA if he had a year in the US. (I've already emailed him northern NM and AZ, and SD, NE, WY, and MT.)

      Once you'r out of the Salt River Canyon on US 60 you'll end up in Globe. Stop at the Besh-Ba-Gowah Archeological Park and Museum.

      https://www.globeaz.gov/besh-ba-gowa...ark-and-museum

      You can eat at my cousin's favorite restaurant, Irene's. The chicken and green chili chimichanga is good. After lunch, head toward Tucson on US 70/AZ7. Before taking AZ 77 into Tucson, keep on US 70 and head into the San Carlos rez. Just over the border is bead shop -- Beaded Edge Supply -- that I stopped at on my trip out there in Oct 2019. (A lady at Irene's told me about when she heard my cousin and I talking about beads. )

      https://www.coppercountrynews.com/article/beaded-edge-supply-celebrates-expansion-with-grand-re-opening
      Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/beadededgesupply/

      After you've stocked up on beads, hides and all, head down AZ 77 into Tucson. Once you get south of Oracle Junction you'll start to see those icons of the "Wild West" of the wild west of the imagination, the saguaro cactus (Carnegiea gigantea). To really them you need to go to Safuaro National Park

      https://www.nps.gov/sagu/index.htm

      These cacti are amazing. They grow only in parts of the Sonora desert in AZ and Mexico. They sink a large deep tap root into the earth and draw up water to saturate a spongy interior. At the height of the monsoon season, they can weight up to 90lb a foot. They flower in late spring and are pollinated by bees and bats. The Native peoples of the area harvested the red fruits using long hooked poles. The Tohono O'odham make syrup, jam and a wine used in ceremony from the fruits, and the seeds are processed into meal and oil. The woody ribs of dead cacti were used for construction in the wood poor area.

      https://www.nps.gov/sagu/learn/histo...vest-Brief.pdf

      After that head over to the Sonora Desert Museum. Just don't take me with you. I've been there twice and both times I've driven up the mountain in blinding rain storms. (I'm the desert rain magnet. When I went to Idyllwild in 2015, they were having a drought. It starting sprinkling when we hit Desert Center on I-10. A day later, the bridge on I-10 over Tex Wash was washed out by flood waters.)

      https://www.desertmuseum.org

      Then stop at Old Tucson. Old Tucson is a film studio and theme park. If you grew up watching exported American movie and TV westerns, you've seen Old Tucson (Movies and TV filmed at Old Tucson). Although what you see today will bear no resemblance to the movies and TV of old. In 1995, Old Tucson was heavily damaged by a fire started by a serial arsonist.

      • Since I'm still waiting on my grocery delivery, I'll keep torturing ya'll.


        Now BA, after you poke around Tucson, I'd send you east on I-10 to Benson, where you turn off on AZ 80 to Tombstone. Here you can almost choke to death on the thick "Old West" ambiance. It is a total tourist trap. In my opinion, it's every bit as bad as Deadwood, SD. But, I don't have much romance for that era of history. But my Dad grew up on 1940's Saturday matinees and loved all those 1950's and 1960's westerns. He had a ball pretending he was John Wayne.

        Then head down the Tombstone Canyon into Bisbee. Bisbee is a copper mining town, which sounds completely unappealing. But it has rebranded itself as a day trip destination. The architecture is pretty and the canyon is lovely. The downtown has galleries, craft breweries, eateries and antique stores. Hit the Bisbee Mining Museum. Walk around and window shop.

        The Phelps Dodge mining company used to take the turquoise that the got while mining copper and dumped it in the tailings piles. This turquoise was often smuggled out of the dumps by employees and made its way on to the market. In the early 1970's, Phelps Dodge granted mining rights and a couple thousand pounds of Bisbee Blue went on into jewelry and the stashes of various lapidaries. Some decades ago, Phelps Dodge declared the turquoise played out and covered the tailings piles with many feet of dirt and rock, in part to discourage casual prospecting.

        After a nice day in Bisbee, head out early in the morning back up to I-10 and east into Las Cruces.

          • Some of the Movies have been exported to Germany. :) 3:10 Yuma, Bonnaza, El Dorado, Gunfight at the OK Corral, High Chaparral.

            Saguaro, I like them. They look great but question is, if they will grow anywhere else.

            There beads to have which ARE hard to get at home if at all. The buckskin cleaner is sold out.

                  They only grow below 4000ft elevation in that part of the Sonora desert. Southern AZ -- Phoenix and south, at lower elevations. And a little strip into northern Mexico.

                    Watch out for the nixie.

                    You'd find the mountains around Show Low and Snowflake familiar. A nice Alpine climate.

                              You can also stop in Superior, Az. for a peek at the Apache Tears, (aka obsidian) Mine. This is one of my favorite gemstones, and I have been fascinated by the legend since I was a little kid. https://the-earth-story.com/post/137...ll-have-likely

                              It's finally fall here. I dug out the long sleeved, winter stuff today. Somebody needs to tell the mosquitoes, though. They are still out in force.
                              Take nothing for granted. Life can change irrevocably in a heartbeat.

                                Seems as if the mosquitos have heard nowhere that winter is approaching.
