Rest in peace, my beautiful majestic Mr. Saguaro.



I’m sorry I couldn’t protect you from the idiot who decided to drink and drive on Monday morning. He totally missed seeing the stop sign at the end of Extension and also missed seeing that there was a house directly in front of him. He slammed into the block wall, then careened into both cacti, taking them out. If the neighbors hadn’t stopped him, he would have run, but they detained him until the police arrived to arrest him. Of course, he had no insurance.

I made a claim on my homeowner’s police, but they won’t give me the full value of the cactus because I have a maximum limit per plant. They will go after the driver for the money, and so will I, trying the recoup the $2000 difference.

Too bad. So sad.

  1. So sorry to hear this! Oh, that is so sad and frustrating!!! That sure was nice of your neighbors to detain him until the police got there! I can’t see the second picture (it hasn’t loaded right now) so not sure how close he came to hitting the house? So thankful that he didn’t hit you or another person! Keep us posted on how everything goes!
