Another place we went to, also near Mesa, was a block of houses with a lighting display linked to a Christmas music radio station. We had shut off the truck, and had the radio on to watch and listen... but apparently doing that drained Jeff's already weak battery. We sat on the side of the street for about 30 minutes waiting for AAA to come give us a jump... EVEN THOUGH Jeff put the hood up, dangled the jumper cables at the engine and kept the light on inside for people to see us. I think we counted about 6 cars that passed us by, looking at us as if we were the Christmas display -- NO ONE stopped to ask if we needed help.
In spite of some of the bah-humbug spirit here in AZ, we totally enjoyed the light displays in the brisk winter air. And also stopped at a pizza joint called Frankie's Famous Pizza to get a slice - deelish! - we located thru Jeff's iPhone app!
Christmas in Arizona...
Christmas lights on cacti to a tumbleweed tree!
Thanks for stopping by!
