About this site:
In 1993, I spent the year writing in a blank datebook from 1954. Now, in 2010, I'm posting each page on the web and writing about it. You may want to start at the beginning.

1954: December 22-23

Old Scottsdale is a bit of a tourist trap. Lots of cheesy gift shops and jewelers selling nearly identical stuff, heavy on the silver and turquoise. Although I'm not exactly thrilled to go, we ended up there almost once every trip. There were a couple shops we'd hit every time, perusing the crap. I'm pretty sure this was the trip I picked up this plaid hoodie-pancho.

It seems like every trip we take out there around Christmas, the guys go see a movie while the women go shopping. That time, it was Geronimo. Not great -- I don't remember a bit of it.

Jalapeno's is still there! It's now called Jalapeno Inferno, apparently. I don't think we ever went back after this trip, despite it being good.

Remember Service Merchandise? It still exists, too, in the form of a website. I must have done a little last-minute shopping there.
