|Our guest house and rental car in Arizona|
The temperatures are already up to 100 - and the desert flowers are in bloom. It is a nice adjustment from the humid subtropical climate of Tallahassee.
Last fall Dick and Jan came to Tallahassee for a football game. After a few days together at our home - we spent some time in Panama City together. We threatened to get a camper and drive the 1800 miles - but a 4 hour flight on a 2 for 1 jet ticket prevailed over the camper purchase and 27 hours of driving.
Dick retired two years ago at 65 - only to run into a bout with cancer that he is still gallantly fighting. He could not have a better partner than Jan. I admire them both immensely.
Dick resumed treatment today - so we plan to go down state to visit some tourist destinations. We will return to Maricopa for the weekend - then fly home Sunday. It is a shame to leave this lovely guest house behind for 4 nights.
During the summers of 1992 and 1993 - Lulu taught at the University of Arizona. We lived there a month each summer - when our sons were in junior high. We plan to re-visit Tucson - Tombstone - Bisbee - and Fort Huachuca.
