~ Bisbee and Tombstone ~ Squirrel? ~ Brandy Alexander ~

Good 34ยบ foggy morning.
Wow, the last day of January.
85 years ago today Leslie and Margaret
eloped from Bisbee Arizona
to Tombstone Arizona
and were married.
19 years later Susan Leslie was born. Taaa daaa.....
(the picture is the court house where they got their
marriage license)
Not much to say about yesterday... I had that ADHD thing going on... cleaned out one cupboard, oh look... here's something in this one that needs to be tossed out... oh wait, here in my bedroom I need to clean out this closet.... but wait, there's a squirrel! Sigh. I did get quite a bit done and more for the Goodwill.
We didn't really get any sun yesterday.
Looked like this at noon....
And they by 5pm we had a semi-pretty sunset....
Dinner, a fire, TV.
The Pro Bowl was strange to say the least. The NFC defeated the AFC 55-41. Gotta say, the AFC gave it an awesome try to come back from 41-zip.
