You lived in Sierra Vista Bob? That's where my parents live. I visit them a couple times a year. My dad is one of few living WWII vets and the local Special Forces troops seamed to have adopted him, as he was with the 101st and earned the Medal of Valor. It's comforting to know my folks are taken care of. My grandfather used to work the mine in Bisbee, so I spent a fair amount of youth there.

Michael d: Whoa! You ARE from there. I didn't live in SV. I lived 30 miles west of there in McNeal. 5 miles south of Elfrida (birthplace of Marty Robbins--and not much else) and 12 miles north of Douglas.

I was a museum curator in Tucson and commuted 94 miles each way to work. Door to door: 2 stop signs, 3 traffic lights.

I have a friend who lives 3 doors in from the border in Naco!!! And I know Bisbee all too well.
My late other half managed the Copper Queen Hotel.

I think I watched a show on the Copper Queen Hotel. Haunted, yes?

We started Friday Night Lights last night. Watched the first 2 episodes of Season 1. My daughter had been harping on it - apparently, they find the bad boy with long hair (Riggins?) attractive. Dint get that in the first 2 episodes...a text from our daughter assured us that his character is developed later on....

Yeah, Riggins was the character I hated at the beginning, but he definitely grew on me.
