Slice Of Life

Slice Of Life, is a Weblog (BLOG) that I write, in which I try to tell some sort of story about something, or someone in my life. Sometimes it's happy, sometimes not, sometimes informative, sometimes...... HA, gotcha, did ya think that I was going to say not? Don't know me very well, do ya? :=) I will try to update the BLOG from time to time, whenever I can.

My personality is outgoing, I use to be a wallflower, until I realized that it was all the outgoing people that were having the most fun. It was a tough conversion, but nobody I know today would even remotely consider me to be a wallflower. Basically, when I was young, my parents taught me that if you work hard, you can accomplish anything. I haven't quite found the "anything" part to be always true, but it has inspired me to always try to do, and be, my best.

Thoughts On An Arizona Summer

  • Did you ever notice that most Az Motorcycle parking is made from concrete? It's because asphalt melts in the heat, the kickstands sink, and the bike falls over.
  • You can always tell the Arizona newbies. How? They don't have tinted car windows, nor a windshield sunscreen.
  • Another way to tell? They're the one's walking along the sidewalk in the sun, instead of the shade.
  • This is probably one of the few places on earth, where, in the summer you'll see long haired dogs...... Shaved. I almost didn't recognize mine at the groomers.
  • Around here, no matter where you drive, the most desirable parking spaces are not the ones closest to the door, it's the ones under the trees.
  • Most Arizonans understand why Hawaiian shirts are so popular in Hawaii. It's not the colors, it's the loose (cool) fit. They're very popular here too.
  • This is one of the few places I've seen where the Real Estate ads note the orientation of the house, as a selling point. North/South is cooler then East/West.
  • You can't really fry an egg on the sidewalk here in the summertime. It'll burn too quickly.
  • I'm not sure who invented those "water misters" that keep patio's 20deg cooler then the surrounding area, but whoever it was, they should give them a medal.
  • Around here in the summertime, you'll often see fair skinned people walking around with open umbrella's. And even though there's not a cloud in the sky, nobody thinks that's a strange thing to do.
  • All in all, after > 10 years of living here, I long for the days of living back east, and dealing with snow............ PSYCHE! You guys are so easy :-)
