We said good-bye to our family and feathered friends and left Mesa on a bright, sunshiny morning. Kitty was in his carrier and let us know of his displeasure at being cooped up for a brief time and then gave up and went to sleep. We are on our way... Continue reading

The skies were grey but the mountains were golden as we made our way toward Tucson. We were on our way to a FROG dinner. No, we weren't eating frogs. It was a Forest River Owners Group get together. There were about 80 Forest River RV owners at the BarBQue... Continue reading

Even though January was cooler than usual in the Valley of the Sun February has been perfect. Hard to believe that much of the United States is covered with snow and we have flowers blooming. Lots of sunny days for little girls to ride their scooters. Time to quit making... Continue reading

Another trip to see the Salt River horses. This time he didn't forget his phone or the camera. All of the wonderful rainfall Arizona has been blessed with this winter has given the horses lots of good green grass to graze on. It was announced last week that there has... Continue reading

Another blazing blue sky desert day called us to venture out to see what we could see. There is water in the desert and it gleams in the sun. This is the Salt River. It is the largest tributary of the Gila River. It is beautiful out here. The colors... Continue reading

2016 has been a great year for us. Even if we didn't spend the holidays in a place filled with wintry beauty like this. Our experience with snow this year was at Crater Lake in June. Our winter has consisted of some rain that has made the flowers bloom happily.... Continue reading

A drive out into the desert hills on a bright, sunny winter day can't be beat. There is always mystery as to what is around the next curve or beyond the distant mountains. The cholla cactus is one of my favorites to take a photo of. It always looks like... Continue reading

A most enjoyable afternoon was spent strolling around the Barrio Historica district in Old Tucson. These buildings were built in the mid-to-late 1800's. The original thick-walled adobe homes have richly textured and brightly colored walls. Homes in the Neighborhood are as varied as the multi-cultural families who have lived there... Continue reading

It was time for another road trip. Tucson is one of my favorite places to visit. I like how the mountains surround the city. This display of art was our main reason for coming to Tucson. Our talented granddaughter, Bailey, was participating in a craft show. Such a busy young... Continue reading

A beautiful fall day beckoned for an adventure. I can't go by the airport without hoping for a plane photo. Funny that this is one of the things that I love about Phoenix. A mid-town airport! We headed north on I17. Looks like someone is getting themselves a teeny tiny... Continue reading

One of the many things that I like about our long winter stay in Arizona is that Kevin gives me the opportunity to come in to the office and help out on some projects. It gives me the chance to stretch my brain a bit and feel useful. This year... Continue reading

Kevin treated Walt and me to a weekend in Tucson for the Arizona vs Washington football game. The biggest bonus was getting to watch granddaughter, Bailey, march in the Pride of Arizona Marching Band. She plays the trumpet. They really put on a show. The hours that they spend practicing...

We are on our way back to Arizona. Call us crazy........it is still triple digits there. A short stop over in southern Utah was both beautiful and coolly comfortable. No matter how often we are in southern Utah the loveliness of the red cliffs still amazes us. We spent 2... Continue reading
