Imagine forgetting to close your screen door completely, going out for awhile and coming home to discover a Javelina (large pig but ornery) sleeping in your living room? Not sure how they got the beast out the door but they did. Also imagine wanting to enjoy an AZ monsoon season and discovering....
….this being a rare year where they refer to it as "Nonsoon"? In the winter, I like to highlight a day in late January, in Ohio, when the average day time high creeps from 37 to 38 degrees. Out here, I should identify 7/12 as the day the average day time high DROPPED from 103 to 102, then 101. Don't cry for me Argentina. It is very livable and the mornings wonderful. But, if the every day sun and dry heat starts to get to you, 3 hours away is the Mongollon Rim country (pronounced "Mogey" "yawn") and I went there this weekend for hiking.
Oh, I should not forget that this pony added another trick to his stable,....softball! I had a grand time playing shortstop with the kids and fielded 6-7 ground balls without an error although winging the ball to 1st base is more like a parabolic shaped flight with a bounce to the glove of the person playing first. I think 2nd base is in my future. We "teed off" at 6pm and again, that dry heat isn't a big deal. Now if I could just enjoy a gully washer that would be grand. Got some great images coming of the hikes up in north country.
