Don and I very seldom agree on anything.
Maybe we should start with our elections in Payson. Over 700 mail in votes for one person after the polls closed?
I thought if there were less than 50 votes difference the ballots were supposed to be recounted.
Any idiot knows you take the baby out first. (:
Yes, I have talked about the way Payson was. It is fine now, I don't have to drive a hundred miles for groceries, medicine or a new pair of shoes. It just doesn't have the friendliness it had when I was growing up. And the crime is terrible. I was in Mesa over the weekend as I needed my pacemaker checked this morning. I lived there for over 40 yrs. have a house there but don't think anything would get me to move back. It is spooky down there now.
I wouldn't even go to the corner Walmart after dark by myself now. We never took the keys out of our car at night when we moved there in 1957. Now everything is locked all the time.
Nothing stays the same. I used to be a very quiet nice person.
You don't always know what a person's handicap is. They aren't all visible. They are not all walking handicaps. I have a handicap card but if there is a parking place near where I want to go two or three spaces over I will take it and leave the marked one for someone else.
Sometimes I can hardly walk and will be 80 very soon but sometimes I forget that and take the extra steps. Was taught to be nice to the elderly. And know there must be some out there that needs the marked space more than I do.
Don't always blame the men. Some of them are abused to but to ashamed to tell anyone. What about them?
There are places for women to go but some don't want to. They have a mental problem.
Think everything is their fault, or think they can't support themselves or don't want to. Or stay married because it would upset their family if they divorced.
The one that started this waited until she had been married 11 yrs. then had two children. Was that a smart idea?
When I was a little kid ( long, long, ago) there were border check points between Calif. and Ariz. New Mexico and Nevada. Everyone had to stop and open the trunk of the car and sometimes they opened suitcases or boxes they had. Az. and Calif. were making sure you didn't have any plants. Didn't want citrus going from one state to another. Afraid they may be carrying some kind of bug or something.
I was going to Las Vegas in 1963 and there was a checking station outside of Kingman and they wanted to search my trunk but there was something wrong with the lock so they pulled my back seat forward to look in the trunk. My suitcase was on the back seat and they ignored it. Don't know what they were looking for.
True. I have three grandkids that never learned to multiply numbers. One said all she had to learn was to multiply by one and nine. Is there something wrong with that? I know probably everyone has a calculator on their phones. What if the battery goes dead?
I agree with you. To bad they don't do a big explosion.
Have you seen anywhere about ISIS members living in a small town here in AZ?
Charles, My grandfather was born in Illinois I don't know where his parents were born. I think maybe Germany. My mother was born in Canada and I was born in Ariz.
He came to Payson from Washington state in 1898 to die from TB. Good Az. air. He died in 1952. He had a wife and two daughters which came later. Ended up owning a lot of different businesses in and around town including bars, lumber yard and the Lone Pine Hotel to name a few but lost them gambling. . None of us ever wanted to leave Payson once we were here.
I think you travel a lot. Looking for somewhere else to live? You don't seem to like America much.
We all stood for the flag with our hands over our hearts. Not to impress anyone, it just felt good. And I still do.
Why is nothing being done to the girl caught stealing a sign?
Tim, Go back and read the complete article very slowly.
I think he is an idiot. And I wouldn't want a daughter of mine around him alone.
How about what he told the 25 boys?
