A Distant Delicacy

Delicate Arch in the distance at Arches National Park

  1. Southern Utah always reminds me of the landscapes Calvin, as Commander Spiff, used to fly through.

  2. So gorgeous!

    Heading off to my last day miming for the week & looking forward to a mini-holiday.

    Happy Wednesday, all!

  3. Wonderful picture. I do love the desert.

    Happy last day for Maria!

  4. The Spiff strips were fantastic. I also used to love Calvin's father's casual and hilarious abuse of his parental authority:

    Calvin: Where does the sun go when it sets?
    Dad: The sun sets in the west. In Arizona actually, near Flagstaff.

    C: Oh.
    D: That's why the rocks there are so red.

    C: Don't the people get burned up?
    D: No, the sun goes out as it sets. That's why it is dark at night.

    C: Doesn't the sun crush the whole state when it lands?
    D: Ha ha, of course not. Hold a quarter up. See, the sun's just about the same size.

    C: I thought I read that the sun was really big.
    D: You can't believe everything you read, I'm afraid.

    C: So how does the sun rise in the east if it lands in Arizona each night?
    D: Well, time for bed.

  5. That looks like the setting for a western, where's James Stewart? Or John Wayne?
    Back from a week in Ireland at a family wedding: never eaten or drunk so much in my life and the whole thing was a merry shambles from start to finish, ending with the 85yr old priest telling one of the English lot, 'in all my life I have never known a woman.' What could she say? She said, kindly: 'Never mind, there's still time.'

  6. PS Photo of cake on my blog,
    I've got the two top tiers to freeze for (hopefully) a christening cake in a year or two!
