A Magical Arizona Adventure

Part of me feels as if I could never sum up how much Arizona and my magical friends mean to me. The other part says, well, you have pictures - you might as well try. If that's not logical, I don't know what is.


This is me traveling to see Vicki and Erin. If you're extraordinarily observant, you'll notice this is a car, not a plane. I did fly, but I didn't take a picture on the plane.


Arizona has so many palm trees. I don't think I've ever seen palm trees up close before. These seven were peering down at me as I lay on the rocks.


Oh the land of hills and mountains and rocks. Lots and lots of rocks. And dryness. Much dryness is involved in experiencing Arizona because they have deserts there. I'm sorry, you didn't know that? Well now you do.



And the moon! Wow, the moon. Everything is so open and vast in Arizona. I feel like I could see for miles and even heaven felt a little closer to earth. 



So here begins the picture journey of an adventure the three of us had. First, to begin the craziness appropriately, I used Elmer's glue to spike Vicki's hair. Yep, you heard me right. Then she dressed like a punk and was all scary. 


Erin and I pretended to be Nancy Drew and Bess. I think I would be Nancy's sidekick Bess because I look terrified and shocked while Erin looks crafty and curious.


To disguise ourselves amidst the detecting, we moonlighted as a photographer and her model taking senior portraits. All these picture credits go to my dearest Vicki.  


To further confuse anyone tracking us, we also pretended to be art critics. 


Then Vicki ate the gargoyle and we had to leave. 


My next disguise was pretending to be a perfume bottle. Everyone was fooled. By then we had lost our trackers, so we turned to more urgent matters. 


Namely, Herb and his dog Ruffles. I successfully charmed information out of the friendly old man and his willing canine friend. He told us everything we needed to know. 


Then Erin rode a wild horse to go report that we solved the case.


To celebrate, we had froyo. Oh yes we did. We went there. I am still dreaming about that coconut and strawberry froyo with chocolate teddy grahams in it. Oh yes. 


Erin was pleased, but unsurprised at her successful case solving abilities.  
While I was more than delighted and used my fame as a detective to break into the froyo modeling business. Cheers! The end.
