Re: “Dust Devil

Oh, come on...
"Santa Rita's"?

Does anyone even bother to proof this crap, or is it just a matter of stringing enough letters together to fill a space?

I honestly came here looking for a bit of light prose. Instead, I got a headache.

But he went to the Olympics in Munich,
and he got to drive a new Bunick.(?)

Re: “Dust Devil

Wasn't there counterfeit money buried under mesquite trees? Fun times.

The Chump Train is definitely going to derail OPV. Jump off the Chump Train while you still have a chance.

We have been in this condition for some years now and it may be getting worse.

Re: “Dust Devil

This was absolutely awesome and brought tears to my eyes! This would have been a nice recitation at the memorial...

Re: “Dust Devil

I first came here about 30 years ago for work and spent 3 weeks in town. I remember thinking to myself "I could live in this place", but as a Brit living in Britland, it did not seem a realistic proposition.
Fast forward 20 years and circumstances had dictated a move here. I was bewitched from the very start. Yes there are plenty of thorns, and a lot of sand, but so very much life in this desert! The harsh conditions have conspired to create a wealth of unique, urgent and thoroughly beautiful flora and fauna. There is nowhere quite like it that I have ever visited on this Earth, and I have been to a great deal of it.
I don't know how anyone who has smelled the mesquite after a desert monsoon could ever wish to leave this place :)

Re: “Dust Devil

This is a heartfelt offering of love to the families of those lost, injured, of traumatized on that day we will never forget.

Re: “Dust Devil

Loved "Weeds."
I am sorry for those truly unable to work, but find it hard to respect healthy non working "weeds" just filling in the cracks in society.

Fine, so long as they move freely in their own country (or come at our invitation).

Re: “Dust Devils

Nice words. It's just too bad that this magical valley is increasingly being occupied by proudly ignorant, science-hating, fanatically fundamentalist gun worshippers. Barry Goldwater would be shocked and ashamed of what Arizona is becoming.

Re: “Dust Devil

I loved dust devils, as a kid growing up I remember running to be inside of every dust devil that we saw. Trying to stay inside as long as possible. The one who came out with the most dust on our faces/eyelashes and eyebrows was declared the winner.

You would be bitten by something, but go ahead and give it a try.
