 There’s an old saying that reminds us that life is what happens while we’re making other plans. Or, as I was taught in the Army, you can plan and discuss strategy for weeks before an operation, but everything goes to hell once boots are on the ground. That’s how yesterday was for me. By the […]

Not Doing Much

Except for going up to the hot tub and soaking for a little bit most evenings, we have not been doing much. I have spent a lot of time just sitting on the couch reading, occasionally logging onto the Internet to check email or things on Facebook, and watching television. I really haven’t had much […]

Today is our last day in Apache Junction, or A.J. as the locals call this community at the far eastern edge of the Phoenix metropolitan area, and I don’t know where the last two weeks have gone. We’ve been busy touching base with as many people as we could, and I know we disappointed some […]

No, I’m not about to launch into a Verizon commercial, but we’ve been spending a lot of time with our friends and family here in the Apache Junction area. Unfortunately, though we are trying to get to everybody we can, there just are not enough hours in the day and we have had to say […]

From Cold To Cacti

We woke up early yesterday morning to the delightful sense of our motorhome not rocking in the wind. The storm that had brought those terrible gusts to northern Arizona had moved on eastward into New Mexico, and though the sky was cloudy and the air was cold, we knew we’d have good traveling weather. For […]

Rocking And Rolling

The wind was averaging 40 – 45 miles per hour yesterday here in the White Mountains of Arizona, and at midday two gusts were recorded at 60 miles per hour. We’re parked next to my daughter’s house and the back half of the Winnebago is sheltered by the building but we’re still feeling the effects. […]

That’s right, it was 102° here in the East Mesa/Apache Junction area yesterday. And it’s supposed to be even hotter today! This is no place for a chubby RVer like me to be. 🙁 We spent most of the day at home yesterday, trying to avoid the heat. We have been pleased to discover that […]

I’d like to say that we’ve had a good time here in Tucson, but Miss Terry’s recent health problems have been the focus of much of our attention and energy. We did get to spend some time with my cousin Beverly while we were here, which I always treasure. Saying goodbye to the people you […]
