  • Pretty little plaques
    on May 9, 2010
    When my daughter was stuck with the agony of moving me & my stuff into my small ALF apartment, she made a selection of art and artifacts from the overload at the house. Among the items that made the cut were these three Mexican plaques in the cla...
  • Water for a thirsty region
    on May 6, 2010 in water
    Water is a precious commodity out here in the arid West -- one reason that these old rusty tanks in the outback are so poignant. The pair are located along the unpaved county road that parallels the Santa Maria River between US93 and the Bagdad Road...
  • Route of the painted rocks
    on May 3, 2010 in rock art
    My email brought me a new addition to the collection of big painted rocks you'll find around Yavapai County. This fellow is located somewhere in the Dells -- and I don't know if he is a casual, one-time fancy or an icon who will be renewed for decade...

    One of the views from my window: The Bradshaw, a subsidized apartment complex for the elderly. It's about to grow to fill an empty acre or two to the rear......where a small version of those ubiquitous yellow earth moving machines was out and about r...
  • Wicker critters
    on Apr 18, 2010 in critters
    As a young girl, I wrapped myself up in the Oz books. Read and reread them. Even so, I did not really understand about the amoral sorcerer who lived in a wickerwork castle, surrounded with everything wickerwork. I guess I was too shy to ask what was...
  • The view from Bradshaw Drive
    on Apr 16, 2010 in Neighborhoods
    You would think that with all the wandering and exploring my husband and I did over our years in this area, we might have taken a look at the southeast quadrant of Prescott -- that turf south of Gurley, east of the Senator Highway. The reality is tha...
  • Art out at Acker
    on Apr 9, 2010 in murals
    The Mural Mice are at it again. This time the object of their attention is the lonely loo building out at Acker Park over at the foot of Virginia Street. The little structure is getting painted on all four sides, as a matter of fact.Subject matter: l...
