Tombstone Territory






Howdy Partners!

I'm back from the cowboy and Indian territory out West and had a hot, hot, wonderful trip. My sister and I went out for our friends wedding and took in Bisbee, Sierra Vista, Tombstone, Benson and Tuscon. We stayed in an 1819 Schoolhouse Bed and Breakfast Inn and Legends Bed and Breakfast Inn. Tombstone is called the "The Little Town that refused to die." When you ride through "town", there are real cowboys hanging out. AZ has no gun law so the men wear their six guns right on their hips. I couldn't take my eyes off of them. I had a little Roy Rogers gun and holsters set and really wanted to get my hands on a gun. One of the cowboys at Carol's wedding let me handle his 45. It is really heavy, and that didn't include the bullets. The mountain range is so different from the Appalachians here in Alabama. Also, the cactus were blooming and we were just fascinated with the bright colors. It is good to be home. I missed all of you in blogland.

So glad you had a great trip and you escaped the cowboys and injuns! My son would have loved to have been on that trip! :)

Happy Belated Birthday!

Love the idea you had for putting the strawberry shortcake in the glass basket/bowl! It is too beautiful to eat! :) And thanks for coming by my blog! Hope you will stop in again for a visit!

Howdy to you, too! I would love to head out west and see a real live cowboy. You must have had so much fun.
It's nice to see two sisters who are so close. My sister and I are BFFs.
Thanks for coming by my part of the blogosphere. Come back anytime.

Hello Friend!
I missed you while you were out slingin' guns and dancing at the saloon. :) I'm glad that you're home safe and back online. I hope that you have lots of great stories to share. I have a wreath that I want to show you...I bet you will want one. Jane Wright is now selling wreaths, and she made AWESOME Alabama and Auburn wreaths. I'll try and post a pic tomorrow.
LOVE YOU!!!
AMY:)

Sounds like a great trip. I also like to travel. My mom, sis and myself drove across the united states a couple of years ago. We had the best time. Your blog is great! Thanks for dropping by.

Hey Tricia! I'm so glad you stopped by! It sure looks like you had a great trip, I've never been out west. Maybe some day. I was reading your profile, and I just love that about your grandfather pealing an apple....my dad does the same thing. I try but I'm always too much in a hurry! Oh...I love your header....I have been working on hutch, trying to get that same look!
Stop by again!

Tricia,

Thanks for stopping by for a visit and I hope your patience improves, ha ha! Sounds like you enjoyed Arizona, me I am not so fond of cowboys trying to sell you something on every corner. I did a post about Tombstone last winter and I was not nearly as complimentary as you were. Perhaps you are just a nicer person, huh?

Come by again anytime.
