Weird Arizona--Hobo Joe

As a housewarming gift, Suzie and Michael gave us a book called 'Weird Arizona'. Its full of all the odd people, places and stories having to do with AZ. Who knew that one of them was a short 30 minute drive from our house. Here is Hobo Joe who was once a beacon for the Hobo Joe Coffee Shops in the area (kind of like a really big 'Big Boy').

He now stands in a vacant lot in Buckeye. We decided pay him a visit yesterday morning, and unfortunately, I'm aftaid we looked like hobos ourselves (maybe you can't tell from the picture that Steve and Miranda are wearing pjs). Stay tuned for more Weird Arizona posts as we continue to explore our new home in the desert.


  1. That sounds like a fun book. Don't let Grant Dearden anywhere near it.

  2. HAHA..I love it. Great name Hobo Joe!! Steve and M don't look like Hobos...not even close! :) I LOVE the sayings from Miranda! SO funny...come on little fella!! Can't stop laughing!!!!!!!!
