Happy Halloween

Today's high: 92.
Won't your candy melt before you get home? For this reason I will not be trick or treating this year.

Everything old is new again....

It was a pretty craptacular weekend around here, but there were 2 rays of sunshine:

1. My repaired & polished bracelet was ready for pick up at the jewelers.
(Cupcakes make me smile.)

2. My winter boots were ready for pick up at the cobbler. They were re-soled & polished. Unfortunately, it was 95 today, so they will go back in the closet for another few weeks.

My hands are so dry I can see scales in my skin. My cuticles are cracking & bleeding. My hair is flat, and static-y. I now have to use 2 different types of moisturizer on my face. My lips are chapped and feel like sandpaper. How I long for summer......

Goodbye Summer!

It's official. This summer is over.
We headed up to the Roaring Fork a couple weeks ago to catch their summer happy hour one more time. $2 rum & cokes for me, and a $7 Big Ass Burger for him. Not too hot to sit on the patio (but only in the shade).

I finally turned the A/C off yesterday. It feels good now with the windows open.

If you build it they will come.....

So they built this monstrosity out West of town in the middle of nowhere. It is supposed to look like a rattlesnake coiled around a barrel cactus.
(I just see an alien spacecraft.)

Once they built this fancy-pants,
state-of-the-art stadium; people started watching the Cardinals.
The "We've never won a Superbowl Cardinals." and the "We haven't been to the playoffs since 1998, Cardinals." Not only that, but they started buying gear. They bought jerseys & hats & face paint. (And a Cardinal outfit?) There is not one single jersey in that stadium on Sunday that is more than a year old. Just goes to show you a lot of people have more money than they have good sense.

I only went because the ticket was free. I represented with a West Virginia t-shirt & ASU crocs.
