    No celebration is what it was when we were children. Time moves on. But most of all our eyes and hearts get old.

    All of my two doors down neighbor's cats are lined up staring through the TV room window. I think their owner is sleeping in and they're hungry. Jet hasn't joined the fray yet.

    St Martin's Day is not a big holiday in the States. Being a Protestant majority country few Saint's day holidays have gone mainstream. Pretty much the only vestiges you'll find are church services, the occasional recipe for Martin's goose and the pastries for sale in Polish bakeries.

    When I was a kid, Halloween was one of the top holidays. A lot of it was the costumes. Some of it was roaming around at night. Some of it was candy. Some of it was that everyone in the neighborhood participated....

    My TV just started speaking Lakota at me! Apparently, Gap has decided Lakota is cool.

    Since our neighborhood has gentrified, they're bussing in kids from OKC and Little Rock, I think. Last time I handed out candy, 2019, I went through three 250 piece bags and ran out before 7:30pm. I recognized fewer than 10 kids as being from our neighborhood.

    Last year, I handed out...

    I stayed up half the night reading Bringing Home Columbia, about the space shuttle recovery efforts in east Texas in 2003.

    When the shuttle broke up over north Texas, I was in the parking lot outside our research machine shop. It was a Saturday morning and I was checking on the large scale...

    The stuff I'm referring to is a mix of big and little Tootsie Rolls (a chewy, chocolate taffy like candy), fruit chews (taffy), Dots (jelly candy) and Tootsie Pops (lollypops with a Tootsie Roll center). It's one of the cheaper Halloween candy mixes.

    Tootsie Rolls were a popular candy with...

    Chuy, migas and iced tea, please.


    I'm doomed. I got into the halloween candy. Thankfully, the stuff for the treat bags is locked up in the server room at work. But, I'm going to have to replace one bag of the stuff at the house for trick or treat. The pickings in the stores are awfully...

    Subs, obsidian is very interesting. At the club we use it a lot for beginning lap classes. It can be cheap. It also tends to be be free of cracks and other weirdness that can make a stone hard to shape and polish. It takes a high polish well. It's very easy to see if you didn't get all the scratches...

    Back to the travel log. Be glad I don't have slides to show ya'll :)


    In Las Cruces, you need to visit Old Messilla. Get some local pistachios at Eagle Ranch. If you're there at the right time of the week, go to the downtown farmer's and craft market.

    Take US70 east...

    Oh, I forgot! While you're in Tucson you need to go to San Xavier Del Bac Mission on the Tohono O'odham rez. It is beautiful.

    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.

    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...

    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...

    *Rose hauls the portable evaporative on to the trailer and unloads the propane patio heaters. She looks around. Her travel log seems to have run everyone off. She pounds on the side to the food truck to wake up Chuy.*

    After passing through McNary, get on the AZ 73 and head to Fort Apache. Visit the museum and the old fort.

    When you get back on US 60, heading toward Globe, you'll be beginning your trip into the Salt River Canyon. But you've heard me wax poetic over that drive before, LOL.
