MMMB Road to Honk! Benefit

From Mick Jeffries' Mobile Photobooth. Give a holler if you're feeling photobooth-y!

Mountain Time

Los Dos Vatos

My beloved friends, documentary filmmakers Ari Palos and Eren McGinnis plot their next mov(i)e. On the front burner: the just-completed Precious Knowledge, about controversial ethnic studies programs in Tucson.


Your "cold" is my "mild weather getaway"

Eren bundles up to walk the dog. It's nearly 50 degrees. (in her defense, the temp dropped to near 40, and it did actually snow a little during our walk

Chu Cho

Chu Cho is a world traveler, despite a savage skin condition. He came from California as a puppy to Kentucky. He went to Oaxaca and Juchitan, deep in the interior of Mexico. Currently between travels, Chu Cho lives in Tucson.

in the yard

I could spend hours inspecting the desert flora that tenaciously thrives just in a given front yard.

free lunch Lucy

our kind of puzzling free lunch after strangely unfulfilling snorkel excursion. we were the only people on our boat of 8 who claimed (legitimately) to have paid for the free grilled fish lunch. So we were dropped off at this beachside joint with one of the boat crew members, who cooked a fish for us. He said: "it's going to be about half an hour." In the meantime, we watched people wade out to a nearby water pen that contained a glum 7-foot Nurse shark. it was equal parts sad & puzzling. afterwards the boat came back and returned us to the dock, about 200 yards down the beach. Very strange, but not unpleasant.

aloe, fishy!
