    Hey, my friend! LOL…I thought about you this past week and knew you’d be surfacing like a scorpion on a hot desert afternoon! I, like you, am still here. “But Why?” the people ask, once they find out how severely we despise this (insert all the adjectives mentioned above) state…”Why do you still live here?”. They just don’t get it that some of us are ‘stuck’ here. Maybe due to jobs, the economy, housing market, perhaps personal finances; but trust me when I say ‘stuck,’ I mean it! Because I’d leave if I could…so what does THAT say? You know what I mean?

    I do get a tickle inside when I read your blogs; something only those who understand where you’re coming from would feel.

    I just met a girl who moved here from the East Coast. In conversation before she made the move, I asked “are you SURE you want to move here?” I brought up the fact that all we see here is stucco, cactus and scorpion, and of course…the now ever famous…HABOOBS. Fast forward… she’s here now. I will get a kick out of watching her react over the coming weeks and months. Another one bites the ‘ARIZONA’ dust!

    One day, when the moo-lah roles in, I’ll be singing some Joe Cocker lyrics:

    “Give me a ticket for an aeroplane. Ain’t got time to take a fast train
    DESERT days are gone, I’m a going home…..”

    Ciao my friend!!

    I too wish I could leave, I’m STUCK, too. I’m from Wyoming, and wonder what craziness was in me to make this move….but I found this blog, and it makes my sentence easier to deal with. I moved here with my mom, who died of cancer a year ago, with her here it was easier to deal with, but she’s gone and everyday seems like an eternity.
    Hating life in az, missing wyo.
