Recent events in Arizona have shaken us all and cast a negative view of us. Though we mean no disrespect and fully understand the gravity of what’s happened, it is not our place to apologize for the actions of a madman. As one Tucson writer put it, we are not made of sugar candy—this isn’t the Hamptons. That’s for sure—it’s much, much better.

Woke up this morning to the sound of dogs barking, looked out the window and saw Border Patrol truck towing horses parked in front of our house.

View of Bisbee from Juniper Flats Road. I don’t know why they call it “flats” as there’s nothing flat about it.
View of Mule Pass Tunnel, built in 1958. These are the Mule Mountains, named for the thousands of mules who carried the ore from the mines.
