No really, mountain lions were sighted on a Scottsdale golf course. No, not the over 40 women looking for Mr. Good Bar, though there are plenty of them, too. We all know that the Plastic Surgery Queens with too much money and too much time, frequenting the single scene hunting just like the cats, looking for a mate are all over The Valley.
This past week Ty Borman was taking a leisurely look out the window, seeing what he could see on the Golf Course in his backyard never expecting this surprise of his life. He’s always felt he’d see “something” said his wife Linda. To his amazement there was a mother cougar and her 2 cubs posing for he and Linda.
After my sighting of the wild horses yesterday and the cougar sighting by Linda and Ty, you just never know what you’ll see in MY Arizona. It’s amazing here and still wild.
I’ve heard of the javelinas, a wild pig-like mammal that roams the desert at night causing havoc knocking over garbage cans and other destructive behavior. I thankfully have been lucky enough to have missed these ugly creatures. I’ve heard they smell like skunks, have red eyes and are scary because you don’t know if they’re going to charge you. Ewwwww! I’ll pass on the discovery of them.
I’ve also seen many coyotes out on my back mountain which is also too beautiful for words. I’ve never seen things like this in New Jersey where I’m originally from. This desert sure is a different world and I love it!
