Tucson says hello to the Nut-mobile!


The Planter's Peanut Nut-mobile has come to town. Naturally the dapper Mr Peanut accompanied the kooky vehicle. Fun!

Hey - you lookin' at ME?

It's very common in Tucson to see dogs acting as co-pilots. This one seemed a little irritated to be photographed!

"Invisible" - Tucson Treasure


The tiny (78 seats) Invisible Theatre is a Tucson Treasure. They are celebrating their 44th anniversary (astonishing!) and they just keep producing interesting and thoughtful plays suitable for a small audience in an intimate setting. The current production, Stella & Lou, has a cast of just 3 and one stage set.

Tucson moon and Venus ~


Five planets are visible in Tucson's night sky this month! The sky on the 21st showed us a young moon and Venus visible right after nightfall. Beautiful!

Win a t-shirt!

Here is another "Where is this?" photo for you to ponder. As frequent visitors to the site know, from time to time I post a photo of a Tucson location and the first person to identify it wins a "fabulous" TDP t-shirt featuring the expressive Desert Museum ram saying, "Monday already?" Good luck!

World Champion Barbecue ~

If you love barbecue, you'll love this place! Yes, it's really called Bubb's Grub and they are famous for their ribs, chicken, steak, and shrimp. Check out their menus here. Be prepared to drive a while because Bubb's is in Catalina - that's NORTH of Oro Valley but not quite to the Biosphere. Good, hearty food!

Rock Musicians & Friends ~



Imagine having this heavy metal band welcoming you home every day! The two rock musicians on the upper left wall are hound dogs (maybe dachshunds by the looks of their floppy ears) playing a bass and a trumpet. Rock on!
