Roadside Abortion
On an early morning ride, I discovered the sad sight of a pregnant momma bunny having been hit by a car with her expelled and prematurely exposed fetuses laying by her side.

Cloudy Sun
The 6:40am sun tries to peer out from behind the dark morning clouds.

Car Trains
Normal weekday 4:30pm traffic merging from the 51 north-bound onto the 202 west-bound in Phoenix, Arizona, the nation's fifth most populous city. Having been born here in 1951, when the population was 100,000, this Valley of the Sun  has just gotten way too huge for your Mr.Wonderful.

Krispy Kar
Hit by a death ray, most likely from a black helicopter, a burnt automobile is stealthily carried off.

Ass Bite
One of the greatest fears of Mankind, and especially Womankind, is that, awakened from the darkness of a dream, one goes to sit on the shadow-cloaked commode and some thing reaches up from the water to damage our most private parts. Fortunately, I easily spotted this creature floating inside my toilet and just as easily drowned him with a precisely aimed stream of warm tequila-tinged urine. I felt much relieved.

Death Ray
One late evening, seeing a mysterious object hovering outside my open car window, I fired up my pocket camera, and I was soon glad I had. Shortly, out of the blackness, a bright red laser beam stabbed at my person. A low flying news-helicopter put an end to the abrupt attack.

Deadly Viper
Here a deadly rattlesnake crosses my path.

Premium Price
Gasoline prices remain stubbornly high. Here at a Mobil station in Anthem, Arizona, unleaded 91 octane premium runs $3.159 per gallon.

Courtesy Van
Sunday morning, as I headed back into The Valley of the Sun from The Maryvale of the North (aka: Anthem), I saw the Arizona Department of Public Safety courtesy van had stopped to help a stranded citizen. In this case, a D.P.S. officer's vehicle had broken down. To the right of the officer walking away from the camera, you can see a chunk of retread thrown from the wheel of a 16-wheeler. As vehicles traveling at highway speeds (in Arizona, citizens have been clocked at over 130mph) collide with these hard to see tire fragments, more than 80,000 serious accidents per year result.

Traffic Break
Monday morning, as I headed back into The Valley of the Sun from the Maryvale of the North (aka: Anthem), I saw this Arizona Department of Public Safety Highway Patrol car performing a traffic break by stopping all traffic behind him. This is how they get disabled vehicles from the center (high speed) lane over to the shoulder.

Bright Light
The other morning, while on patrol, at approximately 2:10:35 am I saw yet another UFO. It shown a light brighter than one thousand suns and effectively cancelled out any detail on my photo.

Fingerprinted !!!
After only three shots of tequila, your Mr.Wonderful jumped in the DeVille and swerved down to the Scottsdale Police station on 90th Street and Via Dona to obtain his job-mandated finger-prints. I stifled a chuckle, as the person finger-printed before me, was in a wheelchair, propelled by his granddaughter, and on oxygen. He was there to fulfill the requirements of his Concealed Carry Weapon permit. I was surprised that I was not fired on by three separate Scottsdale policemen, wielding thirteen-bullet-clipped P226 SIG Sauer's, for setting my Cannon SD200 camera on ten-second delay, and snapping this photo.

Traveling south on Scottsdale Road last month, we were met with this interesting sight.

Eight-Legged Harry
Imagine this ladies: eight legs to shave. It's been awhile since I've posted a photo of a tarantula on these pages, so here she is. This particular lady was just a little bit bigger than a DVD disc. Harmless to humans (and uncomparable on the piano) they feed on miniature mammals and the largest of insects.

Fiery Phoenix
Sunday morning, while driving in from north of Phoenix, even though the sun hadn't been above the horizon for more than two and one-half hours, I noticed the temperature was already climbing at a prodigious rate.

by the Tail
While perusing a mansion in my care, I discovered this little critter. While most pink-skinned desert dwellers would either crush or poison-spray this petite fellow to death, your Mr.Wonderful gingerly picked up the tiny terror and dropped him outside to work on his tan, in Monday morning's already 103F degree heat.

Apparently a visitor to the National Bank of Arizona (on Pima Road near Thompson Peak Parkway) forgot his ATM card. But he did bring his forklift, which he apparently used to remove the entire ATM machine. The bank claimed there was a minimal amount of cash inside the device, however your Mr.Wonderful has seen similar ATMs loaded with meter-high stacks of twenties.

After months of attempting to catch the official Anthem, Arizona Mascot in the open, I did manage to corner one eating a kangaroo rat in the gutter. This little gal was about the size of a kitten and quite unconcerned that I was snapping multiple flash photos of her.

Satan Snake
Here is a bullsnake catching some mooonshine.
