Is that gold in them there hills? No sir, those are called poppy flowers. They litter the hillsides and roadways of Globe-Miami and will soon be gone. Every spring poppies are brought to life in our area and every summer they disappear. Like all things in life they are a temporary treat to be enjoyed. Be grateful for the beautiful things in your life, for in time, they too will disappear. Do not wait for tomorrow when you can live life today.
As a kid I always believed the best aprt of summer to be swimming. In the Globe-Miami area we currently have two choices in swimming pools, the Cobre Valley Country Club and the Miami Hostetler Pool. The Country Club Pool is for members only. However, membership is very affordable and the pool can be rented out for private parties as well. If you are looking for a public pool you can cruise on down to Sullivan Street in Miami and pay only a couple of bucks to swim at the Hostetler Pool. Be sure to check in on their schedule for special dates as well as swim lessons and water aerobics.
Taste of the Month
This time around I am suggesting two different stops for the taste of the month. The Copper Country Rendezvous and Noel’s Sweets and Gifts. Plan the perfect family get away right here in Globe, Arizona. The Copper Country Rendezvous has great family food and fun available from 11am to 7pm Tuesday through Thursday and 11am to 10pm on Friday and Saturday. You can follow up that tasty meal with some ice-cream or other tasty desserts at Noel’s Sweets and Gifts. The two businesses are only a short walk from each other and are also in walking distance to the Globe City Park or Hollis Cinemas. Now that summer is here we all need a few ideas on what to do with all that childhood energy.
