Re: Some rainbow

Thanks, Marc, but my mother took that photo! My camera was someplace very useful at the time - in the car. ;)

Re: Some rainbow


Heh heh, that's why I put a photo credit in the caption of this photo immediately after I submitted it. ;)

PS: (Here's a dig atcha) - time to pair some 10x reading glasses with the groovy sideburns.


(I'm just ribbing you, you know?)

Take care and thanks for the kind words.

Re: Some rainbow

What?? I thought you were talking about Jean Simmons of the rock & Roll band "Kiss."!!! He looks more like a woman than a man.

Just kidding, you got me. It hasn't been my first time, and probably not the last. But, I'll take those reading glasses you're promissing.

Yeah, I know, I'm bad. I don't take the time to read the whole thing. Never been good at reading, but love to look.

p.s. The groovy sideburns are long gone. But, after today, I'll consider bringing'em back. Then I'll be the joke of the whole town.

My vision is fine!

I see everything! I even see that Saguaro on
the next "brown" mountain over.

Rainbows are neat! Their bright colors have
saved me from the depths of depression many times! I'm still searching for the pot of gold.

Re: My vision is fine!

Thanks, Larry. I love the desert. I'd live there 6 months of each year (the other 6 months in Colorado) if we could swing it.

Be careful, you might GET what you wish for.
What you're stating seems like the logical
approach, and it has worked for many people.

Hurry up - so we can do "Babo" !!!

Re: Beautiful

Thank you for your kind words! This was one of those "right place, right time" moments. The sky just opened up with color...it was amazing.

Re: Nice!


Thanks for the compliment! The Tucson mountains are a really special place for me. I love to visit them, and do so at least once a year (while visiting my folks in Green Valley).

Glad you like the pic!

Iwas so fortunate to be in the right place at the right time to enjoy this site. This rainbow came and went within a few quick minutes.

Re: Classic Desert Moment!

Safe climbing!
