Delenda Est Carthago

Why not delve into a twisted mind? Thoughts on the world, history, politics, entertainment, comics, and why all shall call me master!

Location: Mesa, Arizona, United States

I plan on being the supreme dictator of the country, if not the world. Therefore, you might want to stay on my good side. Just a hint: ABBA rules!


All abooooooardddd!

The Saturday after Christmas the entire clan (our family, my parents, and my sister's family; ten people in all) went northward to Clarkdale, Arizona, in the beautiful Verde Valley. There we boarded the Verde Canyon Railroad for an afternoon of sightseeing. We had wanted to go on the train for a while, and so did my mom, so she made the arrangements to go. We'll probably have to go back in the autumn to see the leaves changing color, but it was a fun time nonetheless.

The train has indoor and outdoor cars, so you can stand outside and check out the scenery. The indoor cars have windows, of course, but it's still hard to see what is passing by. The temperature up north was much cooler than here in the Basin, but at least it wasn't raining. I spent a great deal of the trip north from Clarkdale to Perkinsville (a ghost ranch where the train stops and turns around) outside, mainly because I wanted to see the sights. Krys spent most of the trip inside hanging out with Mia, and they had a grand time. It was a very nice afternoon. I have written more about our journey (and our Christmas holiday in general) over at the kids' blog, mainly because it was all about them for the most part. But I figured I'd post some of the more scenic pictures here. So enjoy the Verde River Valley!

Check out my natty hat!

That's fashion, baby!

Most of everything else we did over the holiday dealt with the children, so I have pictures of them. I did get this nifty tool for Christmas:

How manly am I?????
