Oh, no! Not more vacation photos!

These are the last of my vacation photos -- I promise!

Queen Mine in Bisbee, Arizona.  The mine tour was lead by former mine employees.  The grumpy guy in the bottom center photo, started working in the mine more than 60 years ago!  He is 83 years old and still giving tours.  Can you guess what the strange contraption in the lower right photo is?  If you guessed a miners porta-potty, you're right!  The photo of me sitting on it didn't turn out very well!

Tombstone, Arizona.  Brrrr!  It was cold and windy that day!

The country club in Tubac, Arizona.  Center photo, kissing under the mistletoe! The dogs enjoyed a romp on the grass -- grass is a rare commodity in the Tucson area.  We four humans enjoyed a great dinner in the restaurant.

On our way home to San Diego, Glenn and I stopped at the petroglyph site outside of Gila Bend, Arizona.  It was amazing to see the work of artists who lived in that area nearly 2,000 years ago. 3/1/2013 -- Correction:  People lived in this area 2,000 years ago, but the artists who etched these images lived about 600 years ago.

Great pictures. Never thought of a porto potty. Never even thought of what they must have done!

It's amazing when you stand in front of something, some one else stood in front of 2000 years ago!

It is amazing, Daisy, but I was wrong about the dates -- people lived in the area 2,000 years ago, but the petroglyphs were created only over the last 600-1,000 years. Will update my post.
