Traffic Jam

Main Street, Wickenburg, AZ, USA

The Title of this post is, of course, a tongue-in-cheek description of the (clickable) image above with less than a figurative handful of vehicles on the road in downtown today. The Better Half took this photo as we were enroute to an appointment with the kidney specialist*.

When the temperatures rise in the desert to beyond the three-digit level, the winter population (a.k.a. snowbirds) completely disappears (maybe a few hardy stragglers stay a while) and the summer population dwindles to between five and seven thousand while the peak winter population was about 25 k this year. That makes a big difference in traffic, parking, shopping, etc.

TBH and I welcome the summer heat and the ease of our normal lifestyle chores and errands that it brings. Along about Labor Day, the migration invasion will resume. Meanwhile, we’re content with the lull.

*(Regarding the specialist, the prognosis is good with a marked improvement from the initial diagnosis of partial kidney failure.)

Beyond Hope

Beyond HopeIt was six years ago that we posted a photo of the sign in Hope, Arizona, at the town limits declaring “YOUR NOW BEYOND HOPE.” At that time, we pointed out the grammatical error of using “your” instead of “you’re” on the snarky sign.

Well (I assume), the good folks of the Hope township’s only RV park, recently updated the sign with the corrected version and (of course) with a plug for their business. They also have posted American and Arizona State flags on either side of the sign stand.

Hope is only one small town out of several that we pass in the Arizona Outback along US 60 on our way to California and Back. The Better Half took the photo as we were returning from a recent visit.

I Am What I AM

I had to repost this that I found at the Ace of Spades (original source unknown):

i-am.jpgI was born white, which now, whether I like it or not, makes me a racist.

I am a fiscal and moral conservative, which by today’s standards, makes me a fascist.

I am heterosexual, which according to gay folks, now makes me a homophobe.

I am non-union, which makes me a traitor to the working class and an ally of big business.

I am a Christian, which now labels me as an infidel.

I believe in the 2nd Amendment, which now makes me a member of the vast gun lobby.

I am retired, which makes me useless.

I think and I reason, therefore I doubt much that the main stream media tells me, which must make me a reactionary.

I am proud of my heritage and our inclusive American culture, which makes me a xenophobe.

I value my safety and that of my family and I appreciate the police and the legal system, which makes me a right-wing extremist.

I believe in hard work, fair play, and fair compensation according to each individual’s merits, which today makes me an anti-socialist.

I (and most of the folks I know), acquired a fair education without student loans (it’s called work) and no debt at graduation, which makes me some kind of an odd underachiever.

I believe in the defense and protection of the homeland for and by all citizens, which now makes me a militant.

Now, a sick old woman is calling me and my friends a basket of deplorables.

Please help me come to terms with the new me…because I‘m just not sure who I am anymore! I would like to thank all my friends for sticking with me through these abrupt, new found changes in my life and my thinking! …..I just can’t imagine or understand what happened to me so quickly!

Funny…it’s all just taken place over the last 7 1/2 years!

As if all this B.S. wasn’t enough to deal with….now I’m not sure which public restroom to use.

Post Mortem for the Losing Candidate

Hillary for Prison

She really does deserve the fate prescribed by this sign on US 60 here in town, but she will likely be pardoned by the Obaminaton “for all crimes that may have been committed,” as in Ford pardoning Nixon in 1974. However, accepting a pardon is tantamount to admitting guilt. Her punishment should be to just get the flock out of politics and grow old, forgotten and beaten. The big guy in the hereafter will let the punishment suit her crimes when she crosses over. I guess that’s good enough for me.

As for the next phase, we can look forward to the Obamination to continue to do as much damage to the Republic that can be accomplished in his 71 remaining days in office. He will also suffer the punishment on the other side for his innumerable crimes against humanity and the Republic as will his facilitators and many in his political party.

Thank God that the time is ticking away on this episode of miscreant occupation of high office. May He guide our new President to direct our Nation toward the original vision of the Founding Fathers. Amen.

Barium Cobalt Nitrogen Molecule

I’m rather positive that Nitrogen may be the only element that is actually in the product revealed when you mouse over the image above. Barium and Cobalt are both too metallic for this to taste so good. Just sayin’ . . .

Moose Drool Brown Ale

Moose Drool BeerThe Better Half and I have been keeping a lookout for one of our favorite Chinese beers (Tsingtao - 青島啤酒廠) to enjoy whenever having our favorite Asian foods. We have had no luck in our local grocers and even the Walmart down the road, so I guess we will have to keep looking.

We spotted this particular beer in the imports case at Safeway in town and wondered who would want to drink an ale with such a kooky name, but I guess it must have some attraction by the local kooks, since it was there in the case while we were shopping yesterday.

At any rate, I wanted to post a photo of the Moose Drool Ale six-pack in the interest of being an eclectic weblog, not that it could have any purpose other than that for our tastes. Clickable image.
