Stout's Hotel, Gila Bend

This ancient building is Stout's motel.
The sign indicates they have steam heat....
I don't think it's used often.

Space Age Diner- Gila Bend, AZ

Inside the Space Age Diner, Gila Bend AZ.

The food & Service were very good. There are all
sorts of great wall murals and "Space" Art throughout
the diner. If you happen to be traveling nearby, go have lunch!
I have more pictures I'll post tomorrow.

The birds were good enough to plant this for me. It was about 5.5' tall before it went to seed and dried up in the killer heat.

My husband took this picture a few years back, up in the

These unfortunate Hummingbirds were hurt by domestic cats. They are too disabled, even after rehab to be returned to the wild. This is a reason for us cat & bird lovers to keep the cats in!

Gamble's Quail

Gamble's Quail
This poor guy was probably hurt by a coyote or
house cat. The lady from Feathered Friends told
us, but it's been a while, and I forget :)

Tempe Town Lake

A very dirty Tempe Town Lake, taken after
one of our very heavy monsoon storms. When it
rains in Maricopa County, it really does pour!

J.A. Jance book signing

I went to the 01-August-2009 book signing for J.A. Jance's newest release, "Fire and Ice", which is a Beaumont-Brady crossover. She spoke for a bit and signed books. I bought the new one and had my copy of "Hand of Evil" with me as well.
