Happy Holidays from the Verde Valley in Arizona, my friends!

I’ve done some historical research in Jerome. It’s an interesting little town.
Yes, it is! I have been having a great time researching Jerome and Clarkdale. What was your angle?
My graduate work was on prostitution in mining camps of the American West. Most of the information came from Butte, Montana. However, some of it came from Jerome.
I was into immigration and ethnic regionalism. I remember reading some interesting diaries, etc., regarding Butte! Yes, Jerome loves to romanticize the role of the prostitute here. My character in my novel stays at a boarding house run by her aunt. The character, Sally, is not a prostitute but she’s a dancer at the Jerome Theater. Jerome was the happening place to be in 1927. Anyway, Interesting!
I’d like to read that novel.
I would love for you to. 🙂
Wow – what a sunset!
Warmest of holiday wishes for you and yours. 😀
Thank you! Hope you get some time off and can relax 🙂
Thanks you – all good things come to those who wait. 😀
What gorgeous scenery! 🙂

You, too, Paul. Hope England’s weather is nice for you this year. 🙂

Best wishes to you and all your readership.
You’re the best, Paul! 🙂 xo
These are just lovely 🙂
Hi Alex! How’s England this year? Happy Boxing Day !
Christmas Day weather was dreadful but I couldn’t have cared less. It’s the most indoors day of the year for me. I hope you had a great day and are having a nice Boxing Day too.

Hi Cindy! Greetings from New England. I’m not back yet until the 1st but finally got a chance for a bit of r&r after a whirlwind NYC trip. How’s your Christmas? Hope it was a great one. Lovely picks, I absolutely love that sunset shot!
Thanks, Ruth! NE is beautiful; I’m glad you are getting the chance to experience it. Boston? VT? Wherever you are, hope you and Ivan (sp) are having fun. 🙂
It is indeed, it’s a Winter Wonderland over here now but NYC was very warm. I just posted some pics from my NYC trip btw 😉
Oh good. I’ve been ultra busy entertaining extended family, children, etc. Haven’t been blogging much although hope to post something today. Be safe, Cindy
Did you take the pictures? Gorgeous! Arizona looks like a place I want to visit. I live in Maine so it all feels alien to me. Anyhow, hope you are enjoying the holidays.
Hi Eric.Yes, I take my own shots. These are outside my door. I love it here. I used to live in Maine — quite a beautiful state! I was downeast at Machias. What part are you from?
“These are outside my door.” WOW! That’s awesome. You lucky lady! Isn’t Machias near the Canadian border? I haven’t been there yet. I live in Brunswick, near the Bowdoin College.
I’ve been there! Beautiful. It was back in my Navy days when my husband and I were stationed at a Naval Communication Unit. Very remote. Loved the lobster. 🙂
