Happy Halloween

Temperatures will finally start to get out of the 90-degree range for Halloween, but expect one more day of possibly record-breaking heat first.
Saturday broke a 2007 record high of 95 degrees with a high of 96 degrees here in the Valley. Sunday looks to possibly continue that trend. The record high for Sunday is 94 degrees, and the predicted high for Sunday is 93 degrees, according to National Weather Service,

Hubby is having surgery today on the second eye hope it goes as well as the first time.

Last Sat. hubby suggested we take a drive to Globe, Az. about 120 miles from our home. I love to do things like that and it is a beautiful drive once you start climbing up. Here are a few pictures...
Not only is it green but it soon has these amazing boulders...
(little blurry but then we were doing about 80mph)
Globe is a mining town and became ranked as one of the world's richest in copper in it's hay day.
There are several beautiful old buildings there but the one that I fell in love with was the Holy Angels Catholic Church built in 1918
On the opposite side of the street they were having a car show and of course I had to pick one of two to show you....


The weather was wonderful for walking so we followed the signs and walked.
Of course up close and personal just can't be beat. Take a look at the detail of this building...
Yep, that's my man...

We also drove through the housing areas and let me tell you, everything is either going up or going down. I think it puts San Francisco to shame. This is just one street
and this is the house right next to us on this road.
Up on a hill and needing repair.

 In small towns the High School kids gather rocks and put them up on the highest hill and arranges them in the beginning letter of their town. Globe has theirs in pink!

We decided we should have lunch and picked this hole in the wall Mexican food restaurant.
These chances can be either a good thing or a bad thing but this little place that held only 22 patrons was fantastic. All homemade...we hit the jackpot!!!
Globe's economy remains heavily dependent on the mining industry, and as of 2008 the city was home to one of the few operating copper smelters in the United States.
It was a good day....

Movie review

In the past hubby and I went to the movies EVERY Fri. but our schedule changed and now we go very rarely.
Sat. we went to see Sully and I must say it was so different than what I thought it would be and soooo good. If you get the chance to go you won't be sorry.

Subject: Shirley Goodnest....

A mom was concerned about her kindergarten son walking to school. He didn't want his mother to walk with him. She wanted to give him the feeling that he had some independence, but yet know that he was safe.

So she had an idea of how to handle it. She asked a neighbor if she would please follow him to school in the mornings, staying at a distance, so he probably wouldn't notice her.

The neighbor said that since she was up early with her toddler anyway, it would be a good way for them to get some exercise as well, so she agreed.

The next school day, the neighbor and her little girl set out following behind Timmy as he walked to school with another neighbor boy he knew. She did this for the whole week.

As the boys walked and chatted, kicking stones and twigs, Timmy's little friend noticed the same lady was following them as she seemed to do every day all week. Finally he said to Timmy, "Have you noticed that lady following us to school all week? Do you know her?"

Timmy nonchalantly replied, "Yeah, I know who she is."

The friend said, "Well, who is she?"

"That's just Shirley Goodnest," Timmy replied, and her daughter Marcy."

"Shirley Goodnest? Who the heck is she and why is she following us? "

“Well," Timmy explained, "every night my Mom makes me say the 23rd Psalm with my prayers, 'cuz she worries about me so much. And in the Psalm, it says, “Shirley Goodnest and Marcy shall follow me all the days of my life', so I guess I'll just have to get used to it!"
