Arizona Chilly

It hasn't been HOT here in Arizona at all this winter.  As a matter of fact, it's now snowed twice and had 10 days of temps in the teens.  

 The first snow was a pretty dusting and gone as soon as the sun came up.

Then, in the middle of all of the Gem Shows in Tucson, we got a little over 2" of fluffy white stuff.  As long as I didn't have to go out in it it was quite pretty . . . for a long as a day and a half.

So, to add to the chilly, my Sister opened an ice cream parlor down on Allen St. in Tombstone. It's adjacent to her Mercantile.  Next time you're in town, stop in for a malted, sundae, sandwich, or bowl of chili.

Close my eyes sitting on one of those stools and it takes me back to the 1950's in Virden IL where my Uncle Bert had a soda fountain and always had a streak of grape syrup in his white hair from fixing something.

Must be something in the genes as the other side of my family had a small chain of hamburger joints about the same time near St Louis MO.

Not for me. . . food service is a lot of hard work.  I think I'll stick to beads and beading.
