Pictures For A Sunday

Believe it or not, I was going to include a picture of my feet among the photos shown today. Why? Is it because I am becoming even more mentally unhinged? Probably not…I think I just wanted to offer proof of my immensely painful bunions that sometimes make every step very painful. In the end, I decided that showing such a picture was not a good idea. I hope you enjoy the ones I am showing.



One of these days I will get a great photo from this area, even without a drone.



You know I like an Orange Corvette…



Happy Astronomical Summer! Today is the Summer Solstice in the Northern Hemisphere. (Oh, don’t want to forget to wish a Happy Father’s Day to those fathers reading this.) Of course, summer has already arrived where we live as we have had daytime highs of 100° or higher virtually every day for about 18 days. I suspect we will have little or no respite until after Labor Day. Today, our “sunrise” was at 5:16 AM and our “sunset” will be at 7:41 PM. Remember, Arizona does not observe Daylight Savings Time.

As is my ADD fashion, I have decided to count the days of Meteorological Summer as a way to get through the summer. Meteorological Summer begins June 1 and ends August 31; that’s 92 days. Today is Day 20 so we will be about 22% done at the end of the day. Oh, July 17 begins the second half of Meteorological Summer, which will make it a significant day for me and my countdown. Like I keep writing, it is hell to live inside my brain or what’s left of it.


That’s all for today, kind folks.

  1. It may be hell in your brain now. (Which I kind of don’t believe.) But it had to be a pretty fun ride for five decades or so.


    1. As I have written, I believe that people almost always, if not always, judge events not by some objective reality, but against expectations and the status quo.


  2. Sorry to hear about the various maladies you suffer from. I’m coming to the conclusion that growing older isn’t for sissies. My recent medical issues have brought my mortality to my attention. In spite of my lifestyle, I had never spent more than one night in a hospital and those were for patching me up from either a motorcycle or car crash. I had been fortunate to have good health for the most part, and am hoping that this was just a “bump in the road.” I’m also hoping as I become more active, hopefully soon, my blood sugar will balance out as I have noticed on the days where I AM somewhat active it tends to be lower (still in the learning curve of “can have, can’t have” foods).

    Hopefully your medical issues don’t worsen and you also will continue to stay one step ahead of the grim reaper.


    1. Thanks, DDM. Have to deal with the realities of growing older with my genome. I think allergies to substances previously unknown to my immune system are a culprit. That happened the first year I lived in California and after 12-14 months my situation improved.


  3. For those who have never lived in the Salt River Valley, the common expression is that there are only two temperatures in summer: Hot and Oh My Gosh. In my 30 years living in Mesa, AZ i survived the hottest day on record at 122F. I spent the afternoon in line at the auto emissions testing station waiting to get the car emissions tested so I could re-register the car. They actually shut down Sky Harbor Airport on that day as the aircraft charts for operating the aircraft did not go beyond 120F and on the tarmac at the airport the temperature exceeded the 122F recorded at the weather station.
