Memories of Holbrook arizona era of my life... approximate age 7-8
I remember being disappointed shocked and perplexed that Navajo indians wore cowboy hats and levis and looked more like the cowboys than the non native americans did.
I remember being banned to order butterscotch sundais at Dairy Queen due to the sticky quotient on vinyl back seats.
I remember catching horny toads and being told to avoid gila monsters if i ever encountered one
I remember the first time i saw the painted desert and the petrified forrest and being in awe of both of them, they looked so ancient and prehistoric and i imagined dinosaurs wondering through them.
I remember a picnic where me and my younger brother caught tadpoles and putting them in coffee cans, but being forced to let them go before heading home.
I remember trout fishing in which i would always get bored about an hour into it and either tie a lizard to my line and tell him he was going for a swim or feed chip monks most of our bait.
I remember brutal and violent fights between my mom and father in which led to my dad being in and out of the house for most of the time there.
I remember meeting relatives that i never knew i had that didnt feel like relatives and that mom for some reason made us promise not to mention around dad.
Holbrook was interesting and left lots of sustained memories.
