Certified Dairy Tour Ready

Shamrock Farms End of Tour

Grab some milk, ice cream or the newest sports drink Rock & Refuel.

Milk It Does A Body Good

Chocolate milk does NOT come from Swiss Brown Cows!

Did you know that?

Plastic Cows provide the Jugs

Plastic cows are a necessary part of any dairy.

They provide the Plastic to make the jugs to put the milk in for the "real" cows.
Here we go. Tour about to begin.

Shamrock Farms Tour

Wow didn't realize it would smell like cows! : )

Time for Lunch In-N-Out.

Going for a burger before heading to the Dairy is better than heading to the cattle ranch.

Well it is.

Parrots Parrots Parrots

This was the highlight of the morning. Parrots everywhere, on the arms, on your head, in your hands.

Like old friends from school you haven't seen in a long time.

Hint: Go early they are really hungry. And the risk of ... You know is greatly diminished. But once they have had a few cups of nectar you will be fair game for target practice.

The Burros

He mugged a close up. But this one shows just how small these little guys are.

They have a gentler nature than an ostrich. They like to have a good scratch on the head. And they will return the favor with a nice sticky lick of the hand.

Feeding the ostrich

This is not a gentle sport. More like throw the feed at the pan and whatever you do don't get too close.
They aren't cute and they will swallow a Blackberry like it was a piece of fruit.

The start of the day

We begin our day with a trip up I-10 to picacho peak and the ostrich farm

Oregano's Pizza

Like stepping back in time. Literally, Fred is dancing on an old black and white tv.

Next Red Skelton is doing a monologue. The menus and decor are right out of the 50's.

The pizza is hot and the seat so soft and plush you wonder if you will be able to get up or if you should just order another pizza.

New Year's Day 2009 Tucson

It is New Years Day here in sunny Tucson. The temp is 75 and people are sitting on patios.

Flowers are blooming and the bees only know it is another day to fly, gather pollen and make the world a better place.

I like the economy of bees.
